For every decision, whatever requirement, we can help. Our product development team has the know how to offer you the most innovative solutions available.
We offer a range of solutions to reduce noise depending on your specific requirements. Noise is typically measured with Decibel Ratings (DB). Ask us for a comparison chart.
We can offer you ‘A’ rated and triple glazed windows, featuring the most technically superior glass available today, with U Values as low as 0.8.
Toughened glass can be a cost effective way to enhance security. Laminated glass is even stronger, but is more costly.
Our range of obscure glass offers you varying levels of privacy and a choice of designs.
Toughened glass is stronger and safer than normal glass. When it breaks it shatters into tiny fragments as opposed to dangerous shards of glass. We fit toughened glass as standard on all doors and windows below 800mm from floor height.
Self Cleaning Glass
Self cleaning glass has a titanium dioxide coating, which makes the glass very flat, this makes it harder for dirt to stick and causes water to sheet down and clean the glass. UV filters integrated within the surface coating, break down organic dirt such as bird droppings which enables it to be washed away (hydrophilic action).
Increased Privacy with Obscured Glass
Planitherm 1 is 20% more thermally efficient than ‘A’ rated glass. A rated glass has a U value of 1.2 and Planitherm 1 has a U value of 1. The U value is how the thermal performance of building materials and indeed windows is calculated. Most of the gain with A rated windows comes through solar gain, as the glass is very clear, which effectively lets in more heat. However, most of this gain is achieved in the summer, when you don’t really want or need it. Planitherm 1 doesn’t have such a high ‘energy rating’ i.e. solar gain, but performs 20% better at insulating the home and keeping the heating bills down.
