New Swisspacer UK balustrade range

Warm edge spacer bar supplier Swisspacer has extended its range of glass solutions with the launch of La Defender, a suite of high performance balustrade systems designed for residential and commercial applications. The comprehensive range combines style with easy, one-sided installation, Swisspacer says.

La Defender includes options from very slim 6x6mm systems for residential developments through to 12x12mm systems with 3KN loads for the most demanding commercial projects. The systems are tested to British and European standards for glass barriers inside and outside buildings, with continuous gaskets maximising performance through the glass and anodised aluminium covers offering enhanced durability.

John Cooper, commercial director of Swisspacer UK and Ireland, said: “La Defender offers solutions for a variety of applications, including residential and newbuild developments and large-scale commercial projects such as shopping centres, public buildings and sports venues. We’ve had excellent feedback from our customers so far. Combining great looks and long-lasting performance, La Defender offers easy, one-sided installation so it’s a popular choice with installers too.”

Swisspacer’s La Defender balustrade range joins La Pensilina, a cantilever, load-bearing glass canopy system. Designed for outdoor use and installed above entrance doors or sliding and folding patio doors, this stylish, minimalist design is reportedly ideal for residential and light commercial applications. The new products are made by Logli Massimo, part of the Saint-Gobain group, which specialises in high performing systems and accessories for the fixing and assembly of glass panels.
