Renovating with Pilkington energiKare™

In Edinburgh – one of the world’s most historic cities – there are many older buildings that despite their beauty are inefficient in terms of conserving energy. These buildings are also protected by government regulations so improving their energy efficiency requires the uttermost care once approval is granted.

Energy-efficient aluminium framing systems are increasingly used for such ambitious projects. They feature aesthetically narrow profiles with excellent thermal insulation.
