Have you ever considered what percentage of a window is glass? Ever wondered what contribution glass can make to the energy efficiency of your home?
Perfect Performance Glass
The glass makes the difference.
When it comes to replacing your windows, the glass we choose can make a big difference.
Glass will typically make up 70% of your window, and it’s at the heart of controlling the flow of natural light, the level of safety and security, and of heat retention. It can even help protect furniture against fading.
Modern glazing can maximise your home’s comfort, for a difference you may not ‘see’ but will certainly feel. Looking for warmth, a peaceful night’s sleep or to enjoy a sun-filled room without overheating? We’ve chosen Planitherm because it’s the UK’s leading energy-efficient glass and can be incorporated into any style of window frame.
It’s Perfectly Simple
To help you select the right level of performance for your home, the Planitherm range has three clear options. Just choose the one that’s right for you.
Energy Standard – Keep your home warm and comfortable
Comfort – Choose better security and better sleep
Comfort Plus – For the perfect balance of light, warmth and comfort
ENERGY EFFICIENCY – Energy efficiency comes as standard.
A special coating on our glass helps stop heat escaping, so you’ll use less energy to keep your home warm. Our Energy Standard and Comfort glazing captures and makes use of the warmth from natural daylight. Comfort Plus helps limit and control it – ideal for very sunny rooms.
ENHANCED SECURITY – Help protect your family from break-ins and vandalism.
Our high-security transparent layer on Comfort and Comfort Plus glass makes them much tougher to break through than standard, unlaminated glass. Used in an approved window frame, they’re designed to meet the official police security initiative ‘Secured by Design’ standard. So you’ll feel safer and more secure in your home.
NOISE REDUCTION – Make your home a peaceful respite from the world outside.
Perfect for bedrooms to ensure a good night’s sleep, a built-in acoustic layer keeps exterior noise exactly where it belongs – outside. If you live on a busy road or close to other disturbing sounds, noise control glazing should be on your list.
FURNITURE FADE PROTECTION – Keep your furniture looking newer for longer.
Prolonged exposure to ultra-violet light from the sun will contribute to your furniture and curtains fading over time. Our hidden layer of protection on Comfort and Comfort Plus glass blocks out 99% of the sun’s UV rays. Think of it as sun-block for your sofa, curtains and carpets!
REDUCE OVERHEATING – Perfect balance of light and warmth.
Rooms with lots of glass will give you a great view, but the warmth from natural daylight can make it uncomfortably hot on sunny days. Our Comfort Plus glass has a special coating designed to keep out heat from the sun’s rays. This means a comfortable, bright environment and greater control of your internal temperature. It’s particularly suited to south- and west-facing rooms with sunny aspects, or larger glazed areas such as bi-fold and patio doors.
