Kreuzlingen / Switzerland, January 2017 Triple glazing has now firmly established itself on the market. However, the benefits of improved energy-efficiency and comfort come at the cost of a heavier weight and more complex manufacturing.

Now a new product from the Swiss specialist in spacer bars is here to help with that: the SWISSPACER Triple. The spacer bar was designed for triple glazing specifically, where, in the past, two spacers have been used. Now you only need one. It holds the middle pane of glass in a special groove and keeps it in place.

Visitors were particularly interested in SWISSPACER’s new product innovation, SWISSPACER Triple. SWISSPACER Triple is a rigid warm edge spacer bar designed specifically for triple glazing. SWISSPACER Triple replaces two single spacer bars with a centre groove to hold the middle pane of glass in place, allowing sealed unit makers to use a slimmer 2mm or 3mm centre pane. The result is a lighter, more durable sealed unit that’s easier to install.

SWISSPACER Triple gives outstanding energy efficiency and eliminates the need for two single spacer bars. Its centre groove holds the middle pane of glass in place. This allows sealed unit makers to use slimmer 2mm or 3mm middle panes, reducing the overall weight of the sealed unit. Triple glazed units with SWISSPACER Triple are lighter, more durable and easier to install. Available in 25mm, 33mm and 37mm bars, SWISSPACER Triple offers the same excellent thermal performance as its flagship product, Ultimate.
