Leading sealed unit supplier Cristal Glass and Glazing (Leicester) Ltd has switched to Swisspacer V for its top performance. Now, 70% of the sealed units manufactured each week use Swisspacer V warm edge. The change is already paying dividends.
Director Dave Brewin said: “We researched the warm edge market and found that Swisspacer V was best for performance and ease of use. Our previous warm edge spacer caused bottle necks in the factory because it had to be applied using specialist equipment that only one man could operate at a time, but Swisspacer is easy to assemble, which has improved our efficiency.”
Cristal Glass and Glazing offers a ten year warranty and the products used within the sealed unit undergo rigorous testing. Swisspacer V was tested by Chiltern Dynamics to ensure it complied with EN1279 Part 2. It passed with flying colours and the standard was achieved using single seal Hot Melt (Bostik P5125).
Dave Brewin said: “We’re delighted with Swisspacer V, as are our customers. It offers the best in terms of technical performance, it comes in a range of colours and it’s backed by a world class organisation; Saint Gobain.”
