Glass for your conservatory

The choice of glazing determines the use of the conservatory – from greenhouse to living space.

 

combined with following functions

Sun protection

To prevent unbearable heating of your conservatory during summer, but still keeping  as much light as possible in the rooms use of sun protection glass is recommended.

Security

More and more beautiful houses are visited by “uninvited guests” who usually gain access through the windows. Safety glass offers an effective protection against burglary.

Dimmbare Gläser

Ist die Transparenz des Glases nicht permanent gewünscht, bietet sich der Einsatz von elektochromen Gläsern an. Hier färbt sich eine nanostrukturierte Beschichtung beim Anlegen einer elektrischen Spannung blau und reduziert so die Durchlässigkeit von Sonnenlicht. So bleibt nicht nur die Privatsphäre gewahrt, auch der Sonnenschutz ermöglicht.

Sound protection

90% of all Germans are annoyed by noise and prefer the quiet.  Depending on the location, use and source of noise the glazing must meet different requirements. A sound reduction index of up to 52 dB (decibel) can be achieved.

Self cleaning effect

This glass actively keeps itself free from organic dirt with the help of daylight and rain. It requires considerably less time for cleaning. A one-time decision which saves time, money and nerves for the entire lifetime of the window. Details on Activ Glass…

Ug-value / g-value

Ug-value

The less the Ug-value, the more efficient the heat insulation /energy saving.

Heat permeability coefficient Ug-value (often marked as k-value) is the central physical measurement when determining heat loss when passing through a construction element. Permeability coefficient provides information on the quantity of heat passing through 1 m2 of the construction element in a unit of time, when the temperature difference between the air in the room and the air outside is 1 K (Interpane quote).

g-value

The greater the g-value, the greater the use of solar energy.

g-value represents the level of total energy permeability in glazing, for solar radiation wavelengths between 300 nm and 2,500 nm. It is expressed in percentages and indicates the percentage of solar energy throughput.

Active glass with self-cleaning effect

Pilkington Activ™ glass actively keeps itself free from organic dirt with the help of daylight and rain. It is not necessary to use any cleaners or tools. Just spray the glass with water, and no wiping is needed. It takes considerably less time to clean this glass. A one-time decision which saves time, money and nerves for the entire lifetime of the window. Pilklington Activ™ is the glass of the future which already thrills thousands of people around the world.

Your advantages:

  • More free time because you clean your windows less frequently
  • Organic impurities are actively dissolved
  • Better transparency in case of rain
  • No water stains after rain
  • Not necessary to wipe with a leather cloth
  • Less fogging up from the outside
  • Cost saving (window washer)

Here is how it works

  1. step: organic impurities are separated from the glass under the influence of the Sun’s UV radiation and a special layer on glass surface.
  2. step: rain washes out the separated impurities from the entire surface – no stains.
  3. step: clean!
