There was strong interest in SWISSPACER’s warm edge spacer bars, the heart of energy saving windows. Warm edge spacer bars insulate the edges of an energy efficient sealed unit. They keep the panes of glass apart and maintain the integrity of the air gap that insulates a building from heat loss through windows. Visitors to SWISSPACER could also learn more about SWISSPACER’s CALUWIN app, the leading energy-calculating sales aid. The app lets users calculate how much energy and money their customers will save with their new windows.

SWISSPACER UK Sales Manager Vic De Costa is retiring in May. Vic is a well-liked, familiar face in the glass and glazing industry. He’s worked with Saint-Gobain for 29 years! His last five have been spent helping to grow SWISSPACER, the market leading, warm edge spacer bar brand. Helping SWISSPACER increase its lead as the No. 1 warm edge spacer bar is a fitting finale to a long and successful career.

In his video, MD Andreas Geith outlines how SWISSPACER was formed in 1998 to address the problem of heat loss through windows. Saint-Gobain had developed heat retaining glass but recognised that to improve the thermal performance of a window it needed an energy efficient insulating spacer bar. Spacers made of metal are a major source of heat loss, the weak link in an energy efficient window. So SWISSPACER developed a new metal-free compound which gives the best warm–edge performance on the market and makes a real difference to energy bills.
