The top insulated glass manufacturers from around the world rely on Helima to provide their spacer needs. Those familiar with the spacer technology know that state-of-the-art roll formers and top-quality aluminum are paramount to their final product. Using the highest quality raw materials combined with their standards of excellence, industry-leader Helima manufactures spacers and heat exchanger tubes—products that you will, no doubt, be proud to market to your customers.
STANDARD OR CUSTOM-MADE: IN GREAT DIVERSITY AND WITH ALL OUR EXPERIENCE
Whether as a bendable standard profile, a customerspecific development to meet special requirements, as a product for the insertion segment or specially pre-treated for use in customized panes – each of our modern aluminium spacer bars is packed with decades of HELIMA experience!
Our profiles are available in a wide variety that offer an optimum cross section for the most IG applications. They are manufactured by using a high frequency welding process. This technology not only ensures optimum rigidity and a long-term stability of the seam, but it also provides a very high weld quality.
The individual colours and surface coatings are applied using an in-house coil coating process and then baked at temperatures above 230 °C to remove volatiles that would result in out gassing and fogging in the IGU. Great attention is paid during manufacturing to having absolute cleanliness and no paint in the butyling area. This ensures a proper
bond in both the primary and secondary sealant so the IGU that the insulation glass elements are securely sealed.
HELIMA ALUTEC spacer bars can be easily processed on all bending machines and are available in all conventional industrial dimensions and packaging.
CREATIVE, STATE-OF-THE-ART DESIGN DIVERSITY
BOTH FOR THE REFURBISHMENT OF OLD BUILDINGS AS WELL AS FOR MODERN HOMES – HELIMA MUNTIN BARS HAVE THAT CERTAIN SOME THING
Windows with glazing bars convey style and comfort yet they still have to satisfy the high demands placed on functionality and energy efficiency. As an innovative market leader, HELIMA offers both with its muntin bar systems. At a first glance, the great diversity of design possibilities becomes immediately apparent. Available in a wide range of materials and colours, glass elements fitted with our muntin bars produce strong design effects and bestow a unique as well as unmistakable visual appearance on every object.
At the same time, they also stand for stability, dimensional accuracy and durability – just to mention only the most important features characterising these products. The high quality muntin bars 2000, the classic models ’76 and the innovate versions ’76 ECO complement one another to create a range that offers the right solution for every type of application.
SPACER BAR MADE OF STAINLESS STEEL
A WARM EDGE SOLUTION FROM THE TECHNOLOGY LEADER: INSULATING GLAZING OUT OF STAINLESS STEEL
The NIROTEC series by HELIMA has been a proven solution for warm edge insulating glazing for decades – out of stainless steel, a product that is stable and very rigid. The lower thermal conductivity in comparison to aluminium increases the
temperature on the room-side glass edge by up to 8 °C, something which minimizes mould favouring condensation as well as expensive energy losses.
NIROTEC stainless steel spacer bars are permanently UV resistant. Depending on the design of the perforation, they are suitable for the prefilling or post-filling of the frames with a molecular sieve. NIROTEC stainless steel spacer bars are ideal for the manufacture of gas-filled silicone edge sealed units.
INNOVATIVE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
HELIMA FOCUSES ON THE COMBINATION OF HIGH QUALITY SYNTHETIC MATERIALS AND METALS IN ITS NOVITEC SERIES
HELIMA has completely redesigned the notion of spacer bars in the insulating glass industry and with NOVITEC is taking another crucial step forward. The key product features are not achieved with just a single component or conventional material combinations, but through a unique blending of both.
HELIMA has combined them in such a way that an optimum solution can be offered for all applications thanks to the specific configuration. Accordingly, NOVITEC is available in three product versions. Each version consists of a different material blend.
but all of them characterized by excellent warm edge qualities. This opens up interesting product differentiations for forward thinking window manufacturers in the attractive premium market segment.
We are treading new and unique ground with our NOVITEC products. These developments are based on more than 30 years’ experience in the use of high quality metals. This is the foundation for all NOVITEC profiles combined with the very best synthetic materials.
