Trends prompt development

Swisspacer has added four new sizes to its range of Georgian Bar spacer bars.

To meet growing demand for heritage-style windows, the company has developed new 12mm x 18mm and 16mm x 18mm bars specifically for the UK and Ireland. The company has also introduced a new 14mm x 24mm and 14mm x 30mm size for the European market, bringing the full Georgian Bar range to 13 sizes.

Swisspacer’s Georgian Bar is for flush sashes and vertical sliders, and the full suite now features improved bar crosses with an integrated anti-rattle plug and matching end caps.

John Cooper, Swisspacer’s UK and Ireland commercial director, said: “Flush sash windows are taking the market by storm. Homeowners love the traditional look and see it as a way of adding character to their properties. But, homeowners also want windows that perform and save money on heating bills.

“We’ve responded to demand by developing a wider range of Georgian Bar sizes. Our latest additions have been introduced specifically for the UK and Irish markets to fit the most popular sized windows. Together with Swisspacer’s top performing warm edge spacer bar, our Georgian Bar gives flush sash and vertical sliding windows a seamless finish and outstanding energy efficiency.”
