Swisspacer appoints MRA to promote its top performing warm edge spacer


Matthias Meissner – Managing Director of Swisspacer

With a growing network of sealed unit manufacturers in the UK, Swisspacer has appointed MRA Marketing to promote its warm edge technology. Established in 1998, and part of Saint Gobain Glass Solutions, Swisspacer has grown significantly over the past two years and is now considered to be one of the top two warm edge spacer brands in Europe. MRA Marketing has been appointed to tell the market about Swisspacer, the highest performing spacer bar system, in the UK and Ireland.

Tests conducted by Rosenheim, the leading independent fenestration research and test facility, show that Swisspacer V outperforms any other spacer bar for PSI values for insulation. Its structural strength is second to none and it has been specified for many well-known tall buildings across the world including the Swiss Re ‘Gherkin’ and the HSBC building in London.

While Swisspacer’s performance is ahead of other warm edge spacers, it exactly matches the shape and dimensions of aluminium spacers, and being rigid and self supporting it handles in a similar way. This means sealed unit manufacturers and fabricators don’t have to invest in costly, specially adapted sealed unit machinery to use Swisspacer.

Swisspacer’s Managing Director Matthias Meissner comments: “We’ve appointed MRA Marketing to help us get across the benefits of using Swisspacer in sealed units. Its no-investment-needed price benefit and high warm edge performance have attracted sealed unit manufacturers and window fabricators across Europe and fuelled our growth. MRA Marketing has a reputation for helping companies grow fast and we look forward to working with them.”

“We’re delighted to be working with Swisspacer,” comments Lucia Di Stazio, Director and PR Manager at MRA Marketing. “We understand how effective marketing can make a real difference to a company’s performance and look forward to helping Swisspacer grow in the UK.”

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.
