Pilkington energiKare™ for Trade Customers

ek logoThe Pilkington energiKare™ glazing scheme is designed to meet the growing demand from homeowners to reduce energy loss from homes through windows, with the benefits of saving money on fuel bills and helping the environment. By joining the scheme you will be able to market your insulating glass units to other trade customers or windows to householders using the Pilkington energiKare brand and join our website supplier finder which is searched by thousands of homeowners every month.

You may purchase Pilkington energiKare™ units directly from us through our branch network or qualify to manufacture your own double glazed units under franchise.
The brand covers glazing which incorporates any of the products in our low emissivity glass range in insulating glass units to provide enhanced energy efficiency in homes. This means that you can use either our Pilkington K Glass or our Pilkington Optitherm range or both to achieve the performance you require. These may or may not be paired with an outer pane of Pilkington Optiwhite E (low iron) to enhance the Window Energy Rating (WER).

The Pilkington K Glass range includes;
-       Standard original on line, hard coat Pilkington K Glass
-       Pilkington K Glass OW being the same coating on a low iron glass substrate
-       Pilkington K Glass S off line coated for optimum WER performance, or 
-   NEW Pilkington K Glass A; the original hard coat with improved emissivity

Alternatively for optimum U-value performance you may use a product from our Pilkington Optitherm range.

The branding includes Pilkington energiKare Advantage where a Pilkington Optitherm S1 Plus outer pane is paired with a Pilkington K Glass OW inner pane to achieve a triple glazing equivalent U-value of 0.9.

In order to reassure homeowners, scheme members must provide high performance products. Therefore we will ask for evidence that IGU suppliers manufacture according to BS EN 1279 Part 2 (air fill) or Part 3 (Argon fill) and that window fabricators achieve Building Regulations for energy efficiency, currently WER band C or U-value of 1.6 W/m2K. 

Window installers can also join the scheme by demonstrating that they are purchasing a window approved as above.
