Pilkington United Kingdom Limited manufactures a wide range of float, coated, rolled, laminated and toughened glass products.

We are highly focused on delivering exceptional product quality and customer service whilst striving to deliver the benefits of our technical ability and insight to the end user.

Our ranges are categorised by product benefit such as Solar Control, Thermal Insulation, Noise Control, Safety and Security, Self-Cleaning, Decoration and Special Applications to help you choose the right glass for your project.

Solar Control

See also www.pilkington.co.uk/solarcontrol

Solar control glass can be an attractive feature of a building whilst at the same time helping to minimise and even sometimes eliminate the need for shading devices.

Effective solar control glazing products can also reduce the strain on air conditioning systems and help to lower building running costs.

Our high-performance Pilkington Suncool™ range is available in annealed, toughened and laminated formats with a wide range of g-values from around 0.45 to below 0.20.

Thermal Insulation

We offer a variety of solutions to help improve the energy efficiency of buildings.

Optimised for superior thermal insulation with ultra-low Ug-values, our Pilkington Optitherm™ range is the ultimate in low-e performance with a super neutral appearance.

Pilkington energiKare™ Advantage is a revolutionary concept utilising two low-e panes to achieve a centre-pane Ug-value as low as 0.9 W/m²K – essentially triple-glazing performance in a double-glazed unit!

Our ultra slim 6.2mm Pilkington Spacia™ glazing units are the world's first commercially available vacuum glazing. They can be fitted in new or existing timber and metal frames and help retain the aesthetics of older, more traditional buildings.

Glass Systems

See also www.pilkington.co.uk/planar

The world's leading structural glazing system Pilkington Planar™ opens up huge possibilities for the creation of complete glass envelopes with frameless façades in any plane.

Internal or external support structures can include the use of glass mullions, conventional steel or the revolutionary Pilkington Planar™ Tension Structure design, to be as subtle or as dramatic as required.

Pilkington Planar™|SentryGlas® System, the ultimate in strength, safety, durability and appearance in laminated structural glass.

Fire Protection

See also www.pilkington.co.uk/fire

A range of fire-resistant glass is available offering various levels of protection – measured in terms of integrity and insulation – from 30/0 to 180/180 minutes.

Pilkington Pyroclear® is an advanced toughened monolithic fire-resistant and safety glass designed for use as an entry-level integrity-only barrier. In a DG unit construction, Pilkington Pyroclear® Plus can include coated glass products to provide thermal insulation and solar-control as well as fire protection up to 60/15.

Pilkington Pyrodur®, Pilkington Pyrodur® Plus (integrity with partial insulation) and Pilkington Pyrostop® (integrity with full fire insulation) are comprised of multi-laminated layers of float glass and clear intumescent interlayers to produce an opaque shield on exposure to fire, limiting the transmission of both conductive and radiant heat.

New to our range, Pilkington Pyroclear® Line for integrity only and Pilkington Pyrostop® Line for integrity and insulation butt jointed systems.
