Using glazing innovation to create a home office

Using glazing innovation to create a home office

22 Dec 2016
Large windows, as well as glass walls and roofs are now being used more than ever to create studies and studios that provide perfect thinking spaces, defined by show-stopping views and natural light.
Many of these designs play on a consumer demand for blending interior and exterior environments, the ‘inside out’ trend, placing the best contemporary style in stunning garden environments or using the latest glass technology to give indoor workers and homeowners a window on the natural world.

The Pilkington product range of high-performance glass solutions makes it easier than ever to create a home workspace that not only looks fantastic, but promises greater energy efficiency.

Choosing a product such as Pilkington energiKare™ Advantage, to upgrade old glazing or as part of a new office structure, means homeowners will enjoy triple-glazed comfort from a double-glazed unit. 

Opting for self-cleaning glass is another way to create a smart, beautiful office that doesn’t lose its sparkle or require specialist maintenance. Particularly useful for structures with hard to reach or inaccessible areas, Pilkington Activ™, is the world’s first dual-action, self-cleaning glass. Its unique coating breaks down and loosens dirt, then uses rainfall to wash it away – keeping glazing looking fresh all-year round, without the need to call in expensive external contractors.

Pilkington Activ SunShade™ is perfect for use in both roofs and vertical glazing panels in home offices where larger ‘glass walls’ are planned.  Offering both self-cleaning and solar control properties, and good levels of light transmission – helping create a bright, airy space that homeowners can be proud of.
