For the past four years Wakefield Metroglaze has insisted on SWISSPACER warm edge spacer bars in sealed units because of its excellent thermal properties. Wakefield Metroglaze is part of Wakefield Metropolitan District Council and is responsible for supplying and installing windows for the Council’s schools, offices, social housing and public buildings. The council installs A rated windows as standard as part of its programme to reduce carbon emissions and improve the energy efficiency of its building stock.
Last year Metroglaze installed over 17,000 windows, all with SWISSPACER inside. Fabrication Manager Rob Smith says: “We buy sealed units from Glass Solutions so it made sense to use SWISSPACER – and we’re more than happy with the results!
“SWISSPACER gives us the A ratings we need without having to worry about specialist gasses or expensive glass, which is a big advantage. Whether it’s a residential property, council office or school, we know our windows will save money and create a more comfortable environment for the end user.”
SWISSPACER Marketing & Sales Manager, Vic De Costa comments: “SWISSPACER warm edge spacer bars add an extra 20% to energy efficiency and can easily make the difference between an A and B energy rated window. SWISSPACER’s High Tech Gas Barrier prevents moisture penetration and gas leakage through the spacer bar to give long-lasting performance.”
