As part of the Saint-Gobain group, which owns the leading network of glass fabricators in Europe, SWISSPACER has access to global knowledge transfer and innovations on an international level. Since SWISSPACER´s establishment in 1998, the companies products
have been convincing glass processors and consumers alike for their outstanding technical and aesthetic characteristics. With the SWISSPACER system - engineered in Switzerland - we are your high-performance partner for the future.
What is a "warm edge"?
In double or triple glazed units, spacerbars are used to create an airspace between two or more glass panes. This space is filled with inert gas or air depending on the insulating efficiency of the glazing. The spacers create a linear thermal bridge of considerable length within the window component.
When metal profiles are used, thermal heat is more or less released into the atmosphere - along the entire transition area between glass and window frame...
Lower heating and cooling cost through better insulation: the thermally optimized spacerbar SWISSPACER excels with top notch warm edge technology. Compared to conventional metal spacerbars SWISSPACER significantly improves thermal performance of insulated glass units.
That’s easy on the wallet, and with reduced CO2 emissions, also on the environment.
SWISSPACER is cost-effective in two ways. On the one hand, no investment (or only minor investment) is necessary to switch over to SWISSPACER from other spacerbars. On the other hand, the end customer’s pay-back time is only 5 years on average compared to conventional windows with aluminium spacer bars.
With rising energy costs, this time period is reduced even further. Thus the use of SWISSPACER represents a very sensible investment in terms of energy conservation, comfort, aesthetics, indoor air quality and environmental protection.
Due to the superior insulation characteristics of SWISSPACER, higher temperatures are maintained at the edges of glass panes - significantly reducing the risk of condensation. This, in turn, reduces the build-up of harmful mold and mildew on the window.
Higher temperatures at the edge of the pane also means less cold radiation, ensuring higher comfort levels and a healthy indoor climate.
