It’s been a summer of sticky days and record temperatures - and keeping homes cool and comfortable is becoming increasingly tricky, even as we delve into autumn.
Traditional glazing solutions can trap heat making rooms like conservatories or areas where there are large expanses of glass, unpleasant to use.
However now modern glazing solutions offer ways to beat the heat problem; making it easier to keep areas cooler and more comfortable, promoting more sustainable living, whether we get an Indian summer or not.
As the world’s leading glazing specialist, Pilkington United Kingdom Limited is innovating advanced glass solutions that use coatings to control internal environments all year round.
Their Pilkington Suncool™
range has been designed with ever changing climate change issues in mind.
Incorporating high performance, off-line coated, solar control and low-emissivity glass products, it provides consumers with more opportunities than ever to design the kind of energy-efficient, amazing looking homes they want - including buildings with large glazed areas.
As well as looking fabulous, using Pilkington Suncool™
in double glazed units can improve a home’s efficiency and reduce bills too.
Its unique solar control properties mean rays are not absorbed into the building; reducing the need for air conditioning units and helping to reduce carbon emissions.
The versatile range can also be combined with products such as Pilkington Optiherm™
or Pilkington Activ™
to provide extra benefits such as improved thermal insulation or even self-cleaning properties - perfect for high or hard to reach areas.
Speaking about the need for more advanced glazing solutions, Pilkington Brand & Marketing Communications Manager, Julia Berkin said: “As our climate continues to change, we need to modify the way we design our homes - and the products we choose.
“Managing indoor temperatures is a key issue and choosing a modern glazing solution like Pilkington Suncool™
is a great way to make homes not just more comfortable, but more efficient.”
