Georgian bar sales growth

Swisspacer has seen sales of its Georgian bar spacer bar increase over the past year: over 300% in Q1 2021 compared with the same period in 2020.

The surge in home improvements is driving demand across many product sectors, including high-performance heritage-style windows.

Swisspacer said its Georgian bar offers outstanding energy efficiency as well as enhancing the appearance of this popular style of window that replicates the look of traditional timber windows.

Perfect for premium-looking flush sashes and vertical sliders, Swisspacer’s suite of Georgian bars consists of 13 different sizes, including the most recently introduced 12mmx18mm and 16mmx18mm models, aimed at the most popular sized windows in the UK and Irish markets.

The Georgian bar also features improved bar crosses with an integrated anti-rattle plug and matching end caps. It’s available in 17 different colours.

John Cooper, Swisspacer’s commercial director, said: “Since we added the two new sizes to our extensive range, interest and sales have soared, further boosted by strong consumer spending on home improvements.

“While demand for heritage-style windows is growing fast, homeowners don’t just want windows that look good, they want them to perform well too. Our Georgian bar helps to do just that. It gives traditional-looking flush sash and vertical sliding windows a flawless finish and provides top-notch energy efficiency, saving homeowners money on heating bills while adding an extra something special to their homes.”
