Leading warm-edge supplier Swisspacer has appointed an additional distributor for the UK and Ireland to meet growing demand – Double Glazing Supplies (DGS) Group. Swisspacer will be stocked at all of the national distributors’ 11 branches and will be supported by Solutions UK who operate as DGS’s specialist IG sales and marketing partners.

Established in 1977, DGS is one of the UK’s largest suppliers to the window and door industry. Swisspacer was chosen to be supplied by DGS by Solutions UK due to its suitability for the UK market (which is seeing surging demand for energy efficient sealed units and windows) and its top performance. Solutions UK will be promoting the many benefits of using Swisspacer to DGS customers and prospects.

Jason Williams, a partner at Solutions UK, says Swisspacer is the best warm-edge solution as it is currently the most cost effective solution to achieve an ‘A’ rated window energy rating; “Swisspacer’s benefits include ease of manufacture, because it doesn’t require costly investment in special machinery, as well as its superior performance in respect of thermal insulation. Some DGS customers were already buying directly from Swisspacer and initial sales have been very encouraging.”

He adds, “Companies who have already decided to incorporate Swisspacer as their preferred warm-edge system have commented on the fact it is has been integrated into routine production with total success and they are very happy that only ‘one’ warm-edge product needs to be promoted to cover all aspects of window energy ratings. We’re making sure that any manufacturer switching to Swisspacer is guided every step of the way to maximise productivity and sales opportunities.”
