Swisspacer Bar

SWISSPACER is one of the best energy saving windows. Warm edge spacer bars insulate the edges of an energy efficient sealed unit.

They keep the panes of glass apart and maintain the integrity of the air gap that insulates a building from heat loss through windows. Part of the global Saint-Gobain Group, SWISSPACER is a world leader in product development and innovation.
SWISSPACER Ultimate, launched in 2013, is a next generation warm edge spacer bar. It’s the best performing foiled warm edge spacer bar in the world. ULTIMATE is best out of all leading foiled warm edge spacers for thermal performance in official tests by ift Rosenheim.

 


Benefits of SWISSPACER

SWISSPACER’s thermally-optimised range of spacer bars are made of an insulating plastic composite material. SWISSPACER reduces the amount of heat lost through sealed units so you get:

→ Lower heating bills
→ A more comfortable temperature in the home
→ A reduction in the risk of condensation forming at the edge of the sealed unit
→ Long lasting performance

Long lasting performance

A warm edge spacer bar helps improve a window’s energy efficiency but it has other important functions. It keeps the panes of glass apart and with sealants and desiccants, should be a gas tight barrier to prevent moisture vapour getting in and insulating gas leaking out of the sealed unit. If the spacer bar doesn’t stop moisture vapour transmission and gas leakage, the sealed unit will become energy inefficient and eventually fail completely.

If the spacer bar doesn’t stop moisture vapour transmission and gas leakage, the sealed unit will become energy inefficient and eventually fail completely.

Of course, the lifetime performance of a sealed unit depends on the volume and quantity of sealants and desiccants, as well as how well-made it is. But SWISSPACER’s Gas Tight Barrier foils stop 100% of gas leaking out and moisture getting into the sealed unit through the spacer bar to give long lasting performance and help save energy year after year.
