It has a heat requirement of 9 kWh/m² and with 10,300 m² of usable space it is the biggest passive house school in Sweden. The Elmeskolan in Älmhult was built according to the international passive house standard. The windows come from the Latvian company “i2 Factory”, which is part of the smartwin network – an association of 15 medium-sized windows manufacturers across 10 European countries. Inside the insulating glass, SWISSPACER ULTIMATE spacer bars ensure maximum energy efficiency and a high level of comfort.

The ROWELDO XL is a high-performance fully-automated welding machine that’s ideal for large-scale sealed unit makers. It’s cutting production cycle times by one-sixth for Italian sealed unit manufacturer Predari Vetri. The new robot welder with the ‘speed-up kit’ uses four generators – two more than previous versions - to generate more rapid energy pulses, so corners can be welded even faster than before. The profile feed-in has been optimised and the milling length now automatically adapts to the width of the spacer bar. The results: the IGU maker achieves time savings of around 17 %.

SWISSPACER Air provides a solution for a fundamental problem in the industry. The air in the space between the panes adapts continuously to the surrounding air pressure but is constrained because the system in the unit is closed. If the unit is installed at a different height above sea level from the level it was made, no pressure compensation takes place. That can lead to significant deformation with glass panes bowing out if the inside pressure is greater or sucked in if the internal pressure is less than the external atmosphere. Either way, the seal can be broken and the unit fail.
