Flair Windows chooses SWISSPACER for ULTIMATE thermal efficiency


The wide range of colours available from SWISSPACER

Flair Windows is a manufacturer and installer of high-performance windows and doors from its 40,000 sq. ft factory in Sutton Coldfield. The company fabricates a choice of systems including Kömmerling, Smart and Selecta. Regardless of the product, Flair insists on SWISSPACER ULTIMATE inside its sealed units for the best energy efficiency.

Ryan Lugg, Company Director at Flair Windows, explains: “Homeowners have become a lot more aware that the most energy efficient windows help cut heating bills and make homes more comfortable. But many homeowners don’t realise just how a window’s WER is calculated – or the importance of small components like spacer bars. We are happy to tell them more about the difference warm edge spacers like SWISSPACER make.

“We demand the best quality products in our windows and we insist on SWISSPACER. SWISSPACER helps us sell with confidence because we know our windows will perform year after year.” Flair Windows usually opt for the 20mm bar in Light Grey but do use a range of colours & sizes.

SWISSPACER’s leading warm edge spacer bar is tried and tested for excellent thermal efficiency and long-lasting results. It comes in an unbeatable range of 17 colours, and 19 widths, making it ideal for a variety of applications from casement windows, bi-fold doors and lantern roofs. SWISSPACER recently introduced two new sizes of Georgian bar spacers specifically for the UK, making it suitable for heritage-style and conservation projects.

Swisspacer

Formed in 1998 Swisspacer is part of Saint-Gobain Glass Solutions. The company has experienced massive growth in the UK over the past 2 years. Its no-investment needed price benefit has been a key advantage that has attracted sealed unit manufacturers and window fabricators and fuelled its growth.

The manufacturing and head office is in Switzerland and a second manufacturing facility is established in Germany. Much investment is taking place to expand production capacity to ensure that Swisspacer is able to satisfy the dramatic ongoing growth in demand for its high performance warm edge spacer bar products.

Swisspacer has a growing network of leading sealed unit manufacturers in the UK and Ireland using its products, including Solaglas, Pilkington, Carey Glass, Supaseal, Custom Glass, Uniglaze2, Glass Systems, Clayton Glass, System 3 and Hollow Seal among others.

Swisspacer exactly matches the shape and dimensions of aluminium spacers, and being rigid and self supporting it handles in a similar way. And because there is no need to invest in expensive new machinery, it makes it very easy to get up and running with warm edge. Automated solutions are however available from Lisec, Saint-Gobain Seva and Rottler and Ruediger.

Independent tests conducted by IFT Rosenheim, the leading European independent fenestration research and test facility, showed that Swisspacer V had the best PSI values of all the other leading brands of spacer bar that were submitted for testing. Using Swisspacer thermal insulation (U-value) can be improved by up to 20%. Swisspacer V and Swisspacer perform very well in the Window Energy Rating Scheme.
