Scenes of joy on the SWISSPACER stand: At the BAU trade fair, the Swiss innovation leader in the area of warm edge spacer bars was presented with the component award from the Passivhaus Institute Darmstadt (PHI).

The award is given to PHI construction products that make energy-efficient construction simpler and thus contribute to climate protection. The premium products SWISSPACER Ultimate and SWISSPACER Advance were given the award.

"With our component certification, we are supporting manufacturers in developing highly energy-efficient products and bringing them to market. Each new product actively contributes to climate protection," said Dr. Benjamin Krick, Head of the Component Certification working group at the PHI, as he presented the certificate.

"There are currently around 190 certified Passivhaus windows, fixed glazing units and sliding doors and SWISSPACER is used in 75 percent of them. When it comes to the 31 façades that have been Passivhaus certified to date, it is in almost 100%," emphasised Karl-Theo Roes, Head of Market Development at SWISSPACER, when receiving the award at the exhibition stand.

The high-performance spacer bars have impressively low thermal conductivity (Lambda value) at the edge of the insulating glass. Depending on the material used for the frame and the glazing, they produce excellent Psi values and thus ensure a suitably low U-value in windows and façades.

"Although our warm edge spacer bars are small components, they have a great effect on the energy efficiency of the building and make a significant contribution to the living comfort – and they look good too," said Karl-Theo Roes.
