Glass FAQs

1 I've heard of Pilkington Activ™ self-cleaning glass, can you tell me more about it?

Pilkington Activ™ is our revolutionary new coating which goes on the external surface of glass. 

It has a dual action; when exposed to daylight the coating breaks down any organic dirt deposits such as bird droppings and tree sap and then when it rains the rain water washes the loosened dirt away leaving the windows with reduced streaking. 

It is available from window companies nationwide for all external glass areas of your home but is especially beneficial in hard to reach areas such as conservatory roofs, rooflights, inaccessible windows or just to save time and keep the large expanses of glass we love in our homes looking clean.

2 Can you advise on where impact safety glass should be used in my home?

It should be used in low level glazing, glazing in and around doors, overhead and in large areas of glazing to prevent injury following accidental glass breakage.
