Pilkington energiKare™ - Architects Information

The Pilkington energiKare™ range was originally developed as a consumer friendly brand that encompasses everything you need to meet current and future legislation concerning energy efficiency in homes.  Whether the range is used in new build, older traditional buildings  or replacement for existing glazing, there is a  suitable product available for most applications, through a wide network of suppliers.

At that time, Pilkington energiKare™ IGU make up was defined with one specific make up. Nowadays, as compliance methods and product ranges have widened, Pilkington energiKare brand can be applied to any IGU incorporating one of our low emissivity glass products such that they achieve a Window Energy Rating (WER) of minimum band C or U-value of 1.6 being the current legislative requirements. Improved performance can be achieved with alternative low emissivity glass types of better thermal performance of the frame. 

Pilkington energiKare™ Triple takes the energy performance even further to allow window designs that can achieve energy neutrality.  For windows that have a weight restriction or constraints on maintaining a traditional appearance Pilkington Spacia™ is a very thin (6.5mm) insulating glass unit using vacuum technology to achieve a similar performance to conventional thick insulating glass units.
