Pilkington energiKare™ Triple

The choice for the best possible window energy rating performance and highest levels of energy efficiency in low/zero carbon new homes.

These high performance triple-glazed units optimise the balance between U-values and g-values to maximise energy-efficiency.

  • An IGU comprising two panes of Pilkington K Glass™ and a third pane of Pilkington Optiwhite™ with Argon gas fill.
  • Very low U-values combined with high solar gain give optimal energy efficiency.
  • Suitable for low and zero carbon homes as well as more traditional new build properties. 
  • Capable of meeting the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes, now and in the future without the need for soft coat options. 
  • Exceeds Window Energy Rating (WER) Band A and Passiv Haus requirements.

How it Works


Pilkington energiKare™ reduces the amount of heat lost through windows and still allows heat in from the sun, an effect known as solar gain.

Pilkington energiKare™ achieves this because it contains two special types of glass:

  • Pilkington K Glass™, the UK’s best selling low-emissivity glass which helps prevent heat escaping from homes.
  • Pilkington Optiwhite™ is a special ‘extra-clear’ type of glass. It increases the degree of solar heat gain and makes homes warmer using free energy from the sun.
  • Pilkington energiKare™ Triple is a triple-glazed unit, comprising two panes of Pilkington K Glass™, and an outer pane of Pilkington Optiwhite™ with argon gas fill in both cavities.
  • Overall thickness of the unit can be optimised to fit a variety of modern framing and bead dimensions.
  • This combination of thermal insulation and solar gain allows Pilkington energiKare™ to make a significant reduction to home energy usage, as the solar gain is greater than the heat lost.

Benefits

 

  • High performance triple-glazed units optimise the balance between U-values and g-values to maximise energy-efficiency.
  • Suitable for low and zero carbon homes and for use in new builds. Also suitable for use in existing homes where framing systems allow.
  • Capable of meeting the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes, without the need for soft coat options.
  • Far exceeds BFRC WER A rating performance and Passiv Haus requirement levels.
  • Designed to achieve increased solar gain and low carbon SAP scores, allowing larger glazed areas without compromising the energy efficiency of new homes.
  • Use of Pilkington Optiwhite™ and Pilkington K Glass™ OW further improves solar gain and light transmission.
  • Warm edge spacer bar options are available for even better energy-efficiency and reduced risk of edge condensation.
  • Mid-pane is toughened as standard to reduce the risk of thermal breakage.
