Pilkington Glass has announced the launch of a low-e, hard coated glass, designed to help windows achieve a Window Energy Rating (WER) A rating when installed within a suitable frame.
When used as the inner pane of an insulating glass unit, and combined with Pilkington Optifloat or Optiwhite, Pilkington K Glass A can achieve a U-Value of 1.4 W/m2k.
This exceed the most recent energy-saving Building Regulations, which are set out in Part L, when installed within a suitable window frame.
As the next generation of the Pilkington K Glass range, the product is a durable, single-stock coated glass, developed to be used in both annealed and toughened formats, and to be easily stocked, processed and installed.
Suitable for both commercial and residential settings, its high light transmission maintains neutrality and avoids the grey appearance common in hard coated low-e products.
Kristian Chalmers, Product Manager, commented: “Pilkington K Glass is the UK’s leading thermal glass brand and the launch of K Glass A enables us to ensure we continue to provide customers with the highest quality products, while meeting the increasing market demand for energy-efficient glazing.”
She continued: “Pilkington K Glass A is the ideal choice when it comes to reducing energy consumption as it helps to decrease the cost spent on heating a building, as less energy is needed to maintain a comfortable temperature.”
Available in a range of sizes, the glass also reduces internal condensation and enables designers to extend the glazed area of a building without increasing heat loss.
