Low-emissivity glass (or low-e glass as it is commonly referred to) is a type of energy-efficient glass designed to prevent heat escaping through your windows to the cold outdoors. Low-e glass such as Pilkington K Glass™ has an invisible coating which dramatically reduces heat transfer and reflects interior heat back into your room.
Insulating glass (IG), more commonly known as double glazing (or double-pane, and increasingly triple glazing /pane), consists of two or three glass window panes separated by a vacuum or gas filled space to reduce heat transfer across a part of the building envelope.
Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™ Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™ is a random pattern which has implications when cutting the glass down into finished sizes. If a pane is small enough, potentially there could be no evidence of the pattern at all.
The Benefits of Designing with Reflective Glass . When designing with glass, there are a wide range of options to choose from to create a truly unique project. One option in particular–reflective glass–has some significant aesthetic and performance benefits. Even when transparent glass is in vogue, there are specific applications when tinted, reflective glass can be the superior choice. In fact, there are even reflective glasses that provide the solar control benefits of low-e coatings.
Tinted Glazing. Glass is available in a number of tints which absorb a portion of the solar heat and block daylight. Tinting changes the color of the window and can increase visual privacy. The primary uses for tinted glass are reducing glare from the bright outdoors and reducing the amount of solar energy transmitted through the glass.
As a double glazing installation and repair company that’s been trading for over 25 years in the Greater Manchester area we have seen a rise in burglars gaining entry through rear French, Patio and back doors where toughened glass had been installed.
