Sustainable Glazing with Pilkington Glass

Glass is a recyclable material, which plays an important role in the thermal insulation of buildings.

With energy costs rising, and over 25% of heat from homes escaping through the windows, more emphasis is being placed on ways to save energy in all types of domestic, commercial and public buildings.    There are a number of Pilkington products available which are designed to improve the thermal insulation of homes and buildings, including glazing such as Pilkington Eclipse Advantage™, Spacia™ and Pilkington Suncool™.However, the most well-known energy-efficient glazing product is Pilkington K Glass™, which remains one of the UK’s best-selling low-emissivity glass products.This can be used in combination with Pilkington Optiwhite™ to make up a Pilkington energiKare™ double glazing unit.

  • A product from the Pilkington K Glass™ or Pilkington Optitherm™ ranges makes up the inner pane of the double glazing unit. Its primary function is to prevent heat escaping through the windows and return heat back into the home.
  • Pilkington Optiwhite™ can make up the outer pane of the glazing unit. Being “extra clear” it allow more light and heat from the sun to enter into the house resulting in so-called passive solar gain; free heat from the sun.

These units reduce the amount of heat lost through your windows, but also allow more heat energy from the sun in through the glass in a process known as solar gain.

By replacing a single glazed window with thermally insulated windows containing Pilkington energiKare™ double glazing units, it can reduce heating bills by up to 20% each year.
