The new addition increases the width options to a total of 18 - the widest range on the market.
At the top end of the scale, the 32mm wide warm edge spacer bar caters for increased demand from housebuilders, architects and contractors asking for an insulated glass solution for windows and doors that require wider gaps in large commercial buildings and units for integrated blinds.
The smallest, 6mm wide warm edge spacer bar caters for slim-line heritage windows used in listed buildings. Heritage windows with slim-line glazing are becoming more and more popular, and glass companies can now offer a solution with 3mm glass and 6mm warm edge spacer that provides the best glazing option for them.
John Cooper, SWISSPACER’s Head of Marketing & Sales – UK & Ireland, says: “From 6mm to 32mm, Ultimate is suitable for any application. For wider units, manufacturers typically use a combination of two 16mm spacer bars, but one bar instead of two looks much better.
“At the other end of the size range the 6mm warm edge spacer bar is ideal for slim-line units for heritage and listed properties”, continues John. “As a sign of its growing importance, the GGF has issued guidelines entitled ‘Narrow Cavity Insulating Glass Units (IGU’s) with Reduced Spacer-bar Sightlines’ and the BSI will accept units for testing these products to En1279 Part 2 & 3. Using Ultimate 6mm bars in slim-line units will prove to give the best results so unit producers can extend their warranties with confidence.”
