Solaglas, the leading sealed unit manufacturer, has seen its use of SWISSPACER increase dramatically over the last two years. In the first four months of 2011, its use jumped 730% compared to the same period in 2009 and 240% compared to 2010.
SWISSPACER has been used by Solaglas for more than 10 years at several of its DGU manufacturing plants. But its recent increased usage of SWISSPACER, the UK and Ireland’s leading warm edge spacer bar, is largely due to the success of EcoClear® + - Solaglas’ market leading sealed unit – which makes it easier and more cost effective for window companies to achieve ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ rated windows.
Solaglas’ Glass Marketing Manager Matthew Kirby says: “EcoClear+ has been very well received by customers because by using it, fabricators and installers can easily comply with the new building regulations, and win extra sales by offering homeowners the best energy rated windows. It gives them a real competitive advantage. SWISSPACER is a key component of EcoClear+ because of its excellent thermal properties. It enhances the overall performance of EcoClear+ and allows us to offer our customers the best performing sealed unit on the market.”
