Thermal Insulation - Pilkingtonhttps://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/thermal-insulationThermal Insulation. Improves the energy efficiency of domestic or commercial buildings whilst enabling the extensive use of glass and the benefit of passive solar gain.Know-how: thermal insulation glazing can benefit ...https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/news-insights/featured-articles/know-how-thermal-insulation-glazing-can-benefit-facilities-managersThermal insulation is typically provided by double-glazing units containing one pane of low-e glass, with an inert gas such as argon (which has a much lower thermal conductivity than air), in the cavity. It is possible to achieve even higher levels of thermal insulation by specifying double glazing with a low-e coating on both surfaces 2 and 4.Pilkington Spacia™https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/thermal-insulation/pilkington-spaciaFour times better thermal insulation than single glazing; Suitable for other applications where use of thinner, low-weight glazing is desirable, such as sliding box sashes, secondary glazing, or as part of a triple glazed ‘super-window’ Pilkington Spacia™ achieves higher levels of sound insulation than conventional glazingPiecing it together: understanding thermal breakageshttps://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/news-insights/featured-articles/piecing-it-together-understanding-thermal-breakagesThermal fractures tend to start from the edge of the glass and at 90 degrees to it. For this reason, it is often difficult to identify a thermal fracture without deglazing the system, as the evidence can be hidden within the rebate of the frame.Pilkington K Glass™ Rangehttps://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/thermal-insulation/pilkington-k-glass-rangePilkington K Glass™ is the UK’s leading thermal glass brand. Established for over 21 years and easily stocked, processed and installed, it has become the trusted solution for meeting Building Regulations concerning energy efficiency.Insulating Glass Units - Pilkingtonhttp://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/architects/types-of-glass/insulating-glass-unitsInsulating Glass Units Pilkington Insulight™ are technically advanced dual-sealed double or triple-glazed units meeting British and European standards, made in the UK. OverviewGlass and Thermal Stress - Pilkingtonhttps://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/architects/glass-information/functions-of-glass/mechanicalfunctionsofglass/glass-and-thermal-stressThermal Stress is created when one area of a glass pane gets hotter than an adjacent area. If the stress is too great then the glass will crack. The stress level at which the glass will break is governed by several factors.Pilkington K Glass™https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/thermal-insulation/pilkington-k-glass-range/pilkington-k-glassPilkington K Glass™. Pilkington K Glass™ is the original hard coated, pyrolytic low-emissivity coated thermal glass which became the most well-known and trusted brand by householders. Established for over 21 years and easily stocked, processed and installed, it has become the reliable solution for meeting Building Regulations concerning energy efficiency.How does Energy Saving Glazing work?https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/householders/types-of-glass/energy-efficient-glass/how-does-it-workHow does Energy Saving Glazing work? Heat always flows towards the cold. Therefore, window glass without a low-e coating will absorb the heat from your home and radiate it onto the colder outside surface, where it is lost.
