Pilkington Insulight™ with ScreenLine®

Overview

Pilkington Insulight™ with ScreenLine® is a system, where the blind (venetian, pleated or roller) is encapsulated within two glass panes, i.e. in a double glazing unit. The exclusive characteristics ensure total protection against dirt, dust or weather conditions, and therefore blinds do not require any maintenance.

Pilkington Insulight™ with ScreenLine® integral blinds system combines high thermal insulation with benefits provided by blinds i.e. shade light and reduce heat from direct sunlight. In summer, solar heat gain can be controlled by tilting the slats to achieve total or partial screening. In winter, raising the slats or keeping them open maximises solar gain, while the inclusion of either Pilkington K Glass™ or Pilkington Optitherm™ in the unit provides improved thermal insulation. In addition a range of solar control coated options can be incorporated to optimise performance.

The movement of the blind, for manual or motorised systems, does not compromise the insulating properties of the double glazing unit and is performed in a totally sealed environment.

The versatile nature of Pilkington Insulight™ with ScreenLine® makes it ideal for many applications. Superior protection against solar radiation, light control and privacy makes them ideal for external façades, windows and indoor glazing. Their slim fit and ease to maintain make them the ideal choice for glazed internal partitions. The blind slats stay clean, making them suitable for places where hygiene is of prime importance. With no casing, Pilkington Insulight™ with ScreenLine® blinds not only blends in well with contemporary design, but also offers a significant saving of space in comparison with standard blinds. By tilting and raising the slats, you can manage sun shading, solar heat gain and light control within a single product. The wide product choice and versatility of operation make Pilkington Insulight™ with ScreenLine® blind systems suitable for all types of framing systems.
