Specifiers have chosen SWISSPACER for Principal Tower in London. This prestigious development is a 50-storey residential tower in Shoreditch, Hackney, close to London’s financial hub.
     Designed by architects Foster and Partners, Principal Tower will contain 301 residential apartments when completed in early 2019. At 162 metres tall and equalling 35,400m2, it will be one of the tallest residential buildings in London. Principal Tower complies with the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, and SWISSPACER ULTIMATE was used in the highly energy efficient façade.
rigid structure, precise edges and clean, crisp parallel lines. It has been used in a number of iconic skyscrapers including New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), 30 St. Mary Axe (The Gherkin) in London, The Prada Building in Tokyo, Madrid’s Torre de Cristal and The Turning Torso in Sweden.
Ideal for sealed units of all sizes, it is tried and tested to give outstanding thermal performance and long-lasting results. It’s also a popular choice for oversized sealed units because of its

 Bohle has expanded its balustrading offer with the EasyMount 6020, which introduces significant hardware savings to cut the cost of balustrade installation.
A heavy-duty addition the to the EasyMount range, the 6020 withstands a linear load of up to 1.5kN, installed more easily and at a lower cost than traditional systems. Rather than requiring countersunk fixings, it uses counterbored. Meaning standard head anchor bolts can be used to mount the system rather than the expensive countersunk fixings. Distances between mounting points are also increased, reducing installation times and fixings required. Dave Broxton, MD, Bohle, said: “The savings are substantial. The cost of countersunk head fixings can run to almost as much as the profile system itself, so there is a clear cost-benefit to switching to a counterbore system which allows bolts with a standard head to be used. It’s also suitable for use in residential and light commercial applications, for example office installations, without needing to use rigid toughened laminates such as Sentry glass. Four or five times more expensive than standard PVB
interlayers, that’s another very significant saving.”
 Available in a side-mounted option, EasyMount 6021, both systems can accommodate glass thicknesses of between 12mm and 21.52mm. Fixing points to achieve a 0.74kN residential linear loading are every 20cm on the 6020 and 40cm for the side mounted 6021.
Each system also comes with a full range of ancillaries. “Glass balustrading remains a growth area and our range is growing with it to deliver increased opportunities for profit to our customers. The EasyMount 6020 and 6021 represent a logical evolution of that offer, delivering significant savings and the flexibility for installation in not only residential but also commercial applications, using a single system”, he concluded.
