Pilkington energiKare™ Advantage joins successful energy efficient glazing range

Introducing Pilkington energiKare™ Advantage – the brand new IGU by the NSG Group which achieves triple glazing performance with only two panes of glass.

Designed for applications requiring an optimised Ug value the new product combines hard coated Pilkington K Glass™ OW on surface 4 with Pilkington Optitherm™ S1 Plus on surface 2 - to reach a remarkable U-value of just 0.9 W/m2K.  

Andy McDowell, Commercial Director, Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, said: “The Pilkington energiKare™ range is very popular with customers and homeowners and we wanted to continue to innovate and offer more energy-efficient products within the offering. With Pilkington energiKare™ Advantage homeowners will receive superior thermal performance, so they can benefit from the sort of energy and cost savings previously associated only with expensive triple glazing. Meanwhile, window installers, fabricators and stockists will be able to push these benefits to their customers, without investing in the additional time, cost and raw materials required to produce triple glazing.”

The IGU makes the most of Pilkington K Glass™ OW, which has always been a favourite choice for its flexibility and versatility. It can be incorporated in many applications, and is usually specified for its exceptional clarity as well as its environmental performance. As an advanced form of the original Pilkington K Glass™, it provides better light transmission and allows in more free heat from the sun to enable householders to reduce energy usage and save money on heating bills.

With the widening of the range of low-emissivity products available in the UK, the Pilkington energiKare™ range has also been expanded to allow for inclusion of the Pilkington Optitherm™ range as well as all of the Pilkington K Glass™ range.

Membership of the Pilkington energiKare™ scheme enables window installers to benefit from the Pilkington brand with support materials and website listing to promote Pilkington energiKare™ energy efficient glazing to householders.  Becoming a member is easy, simply download and complete the Partner Agreement and Registration Form from the Pilkington website providing details of IGU manufacture and window performance accreditation then send them through to the customer contact centre.
