The South Tyrolean company Finstral is one of the leading window manufacturers in Europe and leaves nothing to chance when it comes to its quality requirements.
Finstral makes almost all of the insulating glass required for window production itself. To do so requires a high degree of vertical integration and diverse expertise possessed by only a few window manufacturers.
Finstral has now found a key component for its perfect window: the warm edge spacer bars from SWISSPACER.
"What really convinced me and got me excited was the stability that our profiles achieve with SWISSPACER spacer bars, the performance in terms of energy and the simple industrial processing. That is exactly what we were missing for the perfect window system," said Florian Oberrauch, Production Manager at Finstral AG.
"When Finstral make insulating glass, they are already thinking about the finished window. This philosophy is ideally complemented by that of SWISSPACER," added Elmar Rastner, Head of Sales and Marketing in Southern Europe at SWISSPACER.
Since early 2017, Finstral insulating glass has been produced exclusively with SWISSPACER spacer bars. The company has heavily invested in its machine park and has purchased a total of four "Roweldo XL 4-Head" welding machines from Rottler und Rüdiger.
In addition, it now has bending furnaces to process the spacer bars for semi-circular arches and other special forms, as well as refurbished machinery for processing Georgian bars.
Within one week, production was switched to SWISSPACER at the three plants in Scurelle (Italy), Oppeano (Italy) and Gochsheim (Germany) and in the very first week of production, 10,000 units of insulating glass were produced for Finstral.
All window systems are now equipped with the warm edge spacer bars from the Swiss innovation leader as standard.
