We are all searching for new ways to create light and stylish spaces — and using large expanses of glass offers a myriad of interesting ways to achieve this clean, modern look.

Roofs, walls and windows can all be glazed to open up rooms and blur the lines between indoor and outdoor environments. 

And while the aesthetic appeal of this design approach is clear to see, it’s important to think about practical concerns like long-term maintenance too. Self-cleaning glass offers a perfect solution for those looking to use glazing in hard to reach places or across larger spaces while maintaining a cleaner finish.  

The Pilkington Activ™ range combines self-cleaning and solar control properties. As the world’s first dual-action, self-cleaning glass it has a unique coating which gradually breaks down and loosens dirt as it builds, allowing rainfall to wash residue away, as well as helping to keep the chosen space cooler in the summer.

Pilkington Activ SunShade™, for example, is a good choice for properties and structures where light levels and indoor temperatures need to be controlled to create comfortable living and working environments.

Suitable for roofs and vertical glazing panels it combines self-cleaning with solar control properties, so is ideal for home offices, studios and modern living areas where larger ‘glass walls’ are often used.

Perfect for the damp British climate, choosing either of these products can help to keep even the hardest to reach or biggest areas of glazing stay streak and dirt-free — cutting out the need for expensive external or specialist contractors.

Knowing glass is self-cleaning allows for greater architectural freedom too — giving designers the ability to use glazing without restriction, even in tricky to access spaces and high areas.
