Planitherm 4S (Low-E glass, 4 seasons comfort)
PLANITHERM 4S conservatory glass combines solar control and thermal insulating properties, which gives a comfortable environment all year round. Whether it be summer or winter, your conservatory can be kept at a temperature so you will always want to be in there. This type of glass is ideal for conservatory applications and can be used in both roofs and vertical glazing.
Activ Clear is a self-cleaning glass that allows it to stay in better condition for much longer. This effect is provided by a permanent, transparent coating on the outside of the glass, which harnesses the power of both and sun and rain to efficiently break down and remove dirt and grime such as dried, dirty water marks, dust and insect residue. This means that your conservatory glass needs far less maintenance and can stay cleaner for longer.
Active Neutral is a dual-function glass that provides multiple functions. It provides both solar protection and a self-cleaning low maintenance coating on the surface outside. These unique glasses combine both coatings, allowing you to have the best of both worlds. The self-clean coating on this type of glass harnesses UV light and rain to efficiently break down and rinse away dirt residues.
This allows you to have a cleaner looking window for longer, so you don’t need to spend as much time on maintaining its condition! The solar coating blocks up to 2/3 of the heat by reflecting it to the outside at the same time, therefore keeping the interior temperature cooler during sunny spells. This makes your conservatory an appealing place to be any time of year.
Activ™ Blue is an attractive blue glass, which combines dual-action, self-cleaning properties with solar control performance. This gives you a cooler internal environment, that will stay well ventilated throughout the hot summer months.
The blue tint offers aesthetic appeal and optimum performance. Keeping your conservatory cooler in summer is integral to the enjoyment you’ll get out of this new living space and ensure that you can make good use out of it for a lifetime.
Activ SunShade™ Blue
This kind of Pilkington conservatory glass is specifically designed for conservatories and large glazed areas. It is perfect for use in both the roof and verticals and uses daylight and rainwater to break down and wash away organic dirt from exterior surfaces. This makes it ideal for hard-to-clean areas, as you don’t need to worry about doing this yourself.
Typically, the blue is sued in the roof, and neutral in the verticals of a conservatory giving you a year-round clearer view of your garden. Its unique solar control coating also helps keep internal temperatures cool whilst still maintaining excellent light transmittance.
