Direct Trade is now offering Pilkington energiKare™ with a Window Energy Rating (WER) of B as standard on its 2 most popular systems.

Less than 18 months after partnering with Pilkington energiKare™, Direct Trade has upgraded its standard energy efficient offering to help its customers add value to their windows and save householders even more energy and money off their fuel bills.
 
Steve Green, Director, Direct Trade, said: “We have been a partner of Pilkington energiKare™ for just over a year now, offering the energy efficient glazing as standard to all our customers. It was an easy decision for us to take the next step and offer Pilkington energiKare™ windows with a WER rating of a B as standard on our biggest selling ranges. Our customers receive a window with a higher energy rating at no extra cost and they can pass this added value onto their customers, who can save more energy in the process – an important thing to consider in a tough economic climate.”
 
Andy McDowell, UK Business Development Manager, Pilkington, said: “Our partnership with Direct Trade is a perfect example of how Pilkington energiKare™ can add value to IGU manufacturers, fabricators and window companies throughout the country. The added value provided by the Pilkington energiKare™ range, and the technical expertise and marketing literature that accompany it, make it even easier to sell the Pilkington energiKare™ family range to customers and help homeowners save energy and money.”
 
Pilkington energiKare™ family is a range of energy efficient glazing and combines two leading Pilkington products, Pilkington Optiwhite™ and Pilkington K Glass™. According to the Glass and Glazing Federation calculator, when replacing single glazing with B rated windows, customers can save up to 47 tonnes of CO2 and £17,000 over a 20 year period. As well as these impressive savings, Pilkington energiKare™ also allows more heat and light in from the sun, contributing positively to a home’s energy requirements. With more than a million windows incorporating Pilkington energiKare™ installed since the product’s launch in 2007, these results show Pilkington energiKare™ is an effective way to improve the energy-efficiency of a home. What’s more, Pilkington has estimated that if every household in the UK replaced their glazing with Pilkington energiKare™, over 20 years the nation would save a massive 234 million tonnes of CO2 and £149billion off their fuel bills.
