SWISSPACER ADVANCE is the warm edge spacer bar with the particularly good ratio of price to performance. Thanks to its low thermal conductivity, it contributes to the high energy efficiency of every insulating glass unit. Compared with conventional metal spacer bars, ADVANCE delivers much lower Psi values for especially good Uw values of windows and façades. The higher temperatures at the glass edge prevent the formation of condensation and mould, while the CO2 savings support sustainable window and façade construction.
Not to mention how SWISSPACER also impresses in terms of technology and looks: The high stability of the hollow profile creates an extraordinary degree of parallelism in the frames, while the installed gas and water vapour barrier made from aluminium protects against gas loss and penetrating air humidity to ensure a long service life of the insulating glass units. The matt surface prevents reflections; thanks to the 17 different colours available, the insulating glass unit can adapt to the appearance of any window.
Key performance indicators
For a quick comparison, the Psi values for SWISSPACER ADVANCE and ULTIMATE are shown here for different window designs, as are comparative values for conventional spacer bars. CALUWIN enables exact calculation of the Uw values and offers many other functions.
