Pilkington K Glass™ Is Fit For The Future21 August 2008
Pilkington K Glass™ has been recommended by the Housing Corporation’s Fit For The Future – The Green Homes Retrofit Manual. The manual is a guide to help social landlords improve the environmental performance of their existing housing in line with government CO2 emissions targets. It highlights Pilkington K Glass™ as a perfect way to save energy when upgrading single-glazed windows to low-e double glazing. Its appearance in the manual demonstrates the credentials of Pilkington K Glass™ and its energy saving benefits.
Andy McDowell, National Business Development Manager, Pilkington, said: “Pilkington K Glass™ has been at the forefront of low-e glazing since its launch 15 years ago. Replacing inefficient single glazed windows with Pilkington K Glass™ is a simple step social landlords can take to meet thermal performance levels in their existing housing. We are delighted that our product has received a mention in such an important document from an influential government organisation.”
Pilkington K Glass™ is an integral part of leading energy-efficient glazing, Pilkington energiKare™. It combines with low-iron, high visibility glass, Pilkington Optiwhite™ to reduce the amount of net heat lost through windows by up to 90 percent and allow more heat (energy) from the sun in through the window.
