glasstec a resounding success for SWISSPACER


SWISSPACER’s busy stand at glasstec

SWISSPACER, the leading warm edge manufacturer, enjoyed a successful glasstec show last month in Düsseldorf, Germany. SWISSPACER AIR was the main attraction, and visitors from around the world saw how this small component can regulate air pressure and help prevent sealed unit failures.

During the 4-day exhibition, SWISSPACER invited customers to join them for an evening of dinner and entertainment at Dr. Thompson’s Seifenfabrik in Dusseldorf – an old soap factory with many of its original and unique features making it a spectacular venue for hosting and dining. The occasion was in celebration of SWISSPACER’s 20th anniversary of warm edge manufacturing and included live music throughout the evening.

Jan Hiersemenzel, Marketing Director for Europe at SWISSPACER, adds: “glasstec is a great platform for networking and meeting customers. It gives the opportunity to update target audiences on the latest news and innovations as well as remind the market about the different ways SWISSPACER can be processed. With developments in CALUWIN and AIR too, it was a busy stand at one of the most important shows in the glazing calendar!”

Formed in 1998 Swisspacer is part of Saint-Gobain Glass Solutions. The company has experienced massive growth in the UK over the past 2 years. Its no-investment needed price benefit has been a key advantage that has attracted sealed unit manufacturers and window fabricators and fuelled its growth.

The manufacturing and head office is in Switzerland and a second manufacturing facility is established in Germany. Much investment is taking place to expand production capacity to ensure that Swisspacer is able to satisfy the dramatic ongoing growth in demand for its high performance warm edge spacer bar products.

Swisspacer has a growing network of leading sealed unit manufacturers in the UK and Ireland using its products, including Solaglas, Pilkington, Carey Glass, Supaseal, Custom Glass, Uniglaze2, Glass Systems, Clayton Glass, System 3 and Hollow Seal among others.

Swisspacer exactly matches the shape and dimensions of aluminium spacers, and being rigid and self supporting it handles in a similar way. And because there is no need to invest in expensive new machinery, it makes it very easy to get up and running with warm edge. Automated solutions are however available from Lisec, Saint-Gobain Seva and Rottler and Ruediger.

Independent tests conducted by IFT Rosenheim, the leading European independent fenestration research and test facility, showed that Swisspacer V had the best PSI values of all the other leading brands of spacer bar that were submitted for testing. Using Swisspacer thermal insulation (U-value) can be improved by up to 20%. Swisspacer V and Swisspacer perform very well in the Window Energy Rating Scheme.
