Toughened Glass

Pilkington have been perfecting the art of toughened glass for over 60 years and have produced a glass which boasts five times the strength of regular glass of the same thickness.

Pilkington T Glass, or Pilkington Toughened Safety Glass, is manufactured using a heating and cooling treatment. This process creates glass which has been compressed and compounded to withstand much more than other glass types.

Toughened Glass and More

The Activ range boasts an array of functional glass options which can save you time and money, help control your environment and improve the safety of your surroundings.

As no two doors, windows, skylights or conservatories are the same, Pilkington Toughened Safety Glass can be combined with other products to create something even more functional and unique to your needs.

Pilkington Activ™Neutral, for instance, allows for advanced thermal insulation and can be combined with toughened glass to create a durable, yet functional glass roof or conservatory.

In order to improve safety and security, toughened glass can also be combined with Pilkington Optilam™ laminated glass (designed to increase durability and keep shards together in the event of accidental breakage) to create a safer glass alternative, or double glazing to improve insulation and reduce noise.

Pilkington Self-Cleaning Glass, the flagship glass technology in the Activ range, sports a two stage process that uses sunlight to breakdown dirt and rain to rinse it away. This means that your glass is left cleaner and clearer while reducing time and money spent on maintenance.
