What makes Pilkington K Glass™ the ideal solution?
Basically, by using less heat to keep your home warm, less energy needs to be produced – thus lowering the overall levels of greenhouse gases. Pilkington K Glass™ usually forms the inner pane of a double glazing unit, and has a special ‘low emissivity’ (low E) coating which is a good reflector of long wave radiation (heat). This allows less heat to escape through your windows, because it reflects heat from fires and radiators back into your home. At the same time Pilkington K Glass™ lets the sun’s heat through your window contributing to its energy efficiency. This free heat from the sun is known as passive solar gain and Pilkington K Glass™ offers the UK’s leading performance in this aspect. So whilst offering positive benefits for the environment, this also has great benefits for you.
Save on your heating bills
Pilkington K Glass™ not only saves energy and vital natural resources, but also saves you money over the long term.
Its unique properties and superior insulation keep your home warmer, which means you can run your heating system for a shorter period and still remain just as comfortable – thus saving on your heating bill.
So make sure you ask for Pilkington K Glass™ in your windows when you buy them. It’s the easy way to stamp out wasted energy.
Eliminates cold spots and condensation
Whereas ordinary glass offers poor insulation, with uncomfortable cold spots close to windows, insulating glass units (IGUs) incorporating Pilkington K Glass™ offer a total solution.
By making the inner pane of your window much warmer, cold spots are eliminated – giving you more usable floor space.
And because it’s warmer, the glass reduces the internal condensation, which is normally produced when warm, moist air comes into contact with a cold surface, such as conventional glass.
Perfect for conservatories
Pilkington K Glass™ is the ideal choice for a conservatory too –as thousands of satisfied customers can testify. Better insulation and no cold spots mean it will typically keep an unheated conservatory comfortable for a greater part of the year than ordinary double glazing – so you can make the most of your conservatory all year round.
