SWISSPACER UK introduces premium solutions for glass

London Build show, at Olympia London 27-28 November,stand C30

La Pensilina Horizontal Glass Canopy System

Leading warm edge spacer bar supplier SWISSPACER is developing its range of solutions for glass in the UK with the addition of the exclusive La Pensilina premium glass canopy. This – alongside new fittings and systems for glass balustrades - will be available from SWISSPACER UK later this year.

La Pensilina is a cantilever, load-bearing glass canopy system, which is designed for outdoor use and can be installed above entrance doors or sliding and folding patio doors. The design is stylish and minimalist, and the lack of visible screws gives the canopy a ‘floating’ effect. At the same time, the continuous aluminium profile provides the strength to hold a distributed load of up to 350 kg/m2 without breaking. No rods or glass cut-outs are required, and La Pensilina is also the first canopy system without glass holes to hold an ETA (European Technical Assessment) document.

The innovative new products are made by Logli Massimo, part of the Saint-Gobain group, following its acquisition of the Italian manufacturer in March 2018. Logli Massimo specialises in high performing systems and accessories for the fixing and assembly of glass panels. The quality of its products is demonstrated by the substantial testing it undertakes at a laboratory built in partnership with the School of Engineering at the University of Florence.

Andreas Geith, Managing Director of SWISSPACER, comments: “Our brand of premium warm edge spacers is a UK market leader with a reputation for great looks, innovation and high performance. Logli Massimo’s range complements SWISSPACER perfectly and is part of a longer-term strategy to extend our range of premium products in the UK.”

John Cooper, Commercial Director of SWISSPACER UK & Ireland, adds: “We’re very excited to be able to introduce Logli Massimo products to support our new direction and focus in the UK. Our warm edge spacers are known for outstanding performance and aesthetic appearance and it’s a great opportunity to add to our range and offer customers a growing choice of innovative solutions for glass.”

SWISSPACER UK will be at the London Build show, held at Olympia London between 27-28 November, where La Pensilina and the new balustrade system will be on display at stand C30.

Company Overview For

Swisspacer

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.
