PLANITHERM is Europe's best selling range of high performance low-emissivity glass (low-E glass). The glass utilises the very latest advancements in thermally insulating glass coating technology.
Specially manufactured by Saint-Gobain Glass for the UK market, PLANITHERM products are specifically designed to keep interiors more comfortable in the winter months and improve your home's energy efficiency.
The thermal insulation provided by low-E double glazing is three times more efficient than that of standard double glazing and PLANITHERM products are the ideal low-e solution to meeting and exceeding the newly revised Building Regulations energy efficiency requirements.
PLANITHERM products use a special coating to reflect heat from domestic heat sources back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the windows. At the same time, this coating allows free heat and light from the sun to pass through the glass, warming the room and further contributing to the energy efficiency of the windows and helping to reduce your energy bills.
The PLANITHERM range can be combined with many other Saint-Gobain Glass products, providing a multitude of high performance, multi-functional glazing options, including:
- Self-cleaning and/or solar control glazing
- Acoustic insulation
- Safety and security
- Obscured and/or decorative glazing
This combination of excellent thermal insulation with high solar heat gain makes PLANITHERM the most energy efficient window glass available and the best possible choice for energy savings.
Windows containing PLANITHERM glass provide a highly energy-efficient solution that can save you money on your heating bills. Rising energy prices mean that it has never been so important to save as much as possible on your heating bills. Installing high performance glazing will also reduce your carbon emissions.
Saint-Gobain Glass' new range of Glazing Options packs have been designed to provide you with a selection of window configurations, including double and triple glazed options that offer the most appropriate performance characteristic to suit your living requirments.
*U-value reflects the thermal insulating performance of a building. the lower the co-efficient is, the better the insulating performance.
