Swisspacer enjoyed another successful show at Glasstec.

Leading warm edge supplier Swisspacer enjoyed another successful show at Glasstec. Swisspacer’s stand had a constant stream of visitors who saw first hand the benefits of its top performing warm edge spacer bar. During the exhibition Swisspacer invited customers from around the world, including some of the biggest sealed unit manufacturers in the UK and Ireland, to join them for an evening of entertainment at a Brazilian restaurant.

Kathryn Dalgleish, Swisspacer’s Marketing and Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland, comments: “Glasstec is a key exhibition for us and provides a great platform for Swisspacer to do business. There was a constant stream of visitors to the stand wanting information on how Swisspacer can help improve their performance. Swisspacer’s thermal performance makes it the ideal solution for increasing the energy efficiency of windows and sales are growing rapidly worldwide as well as in the UK and Ireland.”

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.
