Glass and Glazing Resources – Recommended websites

Below are just a few of our favourite glass and window related websites. Enjoy

A Portal dedicated to the flat glass industry, including directories, fresh and up-to-date news and articles, a glass manual, a discussion board with classified ads, and lots of other interesting topics.

Pilkington Activ™
Self-cleaning glass has been described as an impossible dream that could never truly be realised. Yet, after an intensive research program, Pilkington Activ™ is here and available to you right now. By using the forces of nature to help keep itself free from dirt, Pilkington Activ™ will transform the way we think about the windows and conservatories in our homes forever more.

Pilkington K Glass™
Better insulation and no cold spots near windows makes Pilkington K Glass™ perfect for conservatories. In fact, it will typically keep an unheated conservatory comfortable for a greater part of the year than ordinary double glazing. Allowing you to make the most of your conservatory all year round. Pilkington K Glass™ can also be toughened or laminated for safety and greater security.

SGG PLANITHERM is a clear float glass, which has been coated with metallic oxides by magnetically enhanced cathodic sputtering under vacuum conditions. This sputtered coating is highly reflective to long-wave heat radiation, otherwise known as a “low emissivity” or low-e coating. This greatly reduces heat loss and ensures that double-glazed units incorporating SGG PLANITHERM provide excellent thermal insulation. SGG PLANITHERM is neutral in appearance and has a high light transmittance factor. It can be used in a wide range of applications: windows in houses, facades and windows in office blocks, public buildings, etc.

U values
The following table shows some typical U values for vertical insulating glazing Pilkington Insulating Units and the effect of using K Glass, Argon and varying cavity widths. The lower the U Value - the better the insulator. U-value is the measurement of heat transfer through a given building material, glass, etc. In the UK all U Values are quoted as W/m²K.

Safety Glass Short Guide
Where glass and glazing products are supplied for domestic use (such as conservatories, garages, double glazing, porches) they must comply with the 'General Safety Requirement' of the General Product Safety Regulations 1994 (GPSR). This requires consumer products to be reasonably safe and this may be achieved by conforming with British Standard BS 6262: Part 4: 1994 (as detailed below) with reference to the Approved Document N of the Building Regulations 1991.
