Clearly the most energy efficient window glass PLANITHERM is Europe’s best selling range of high performance low-emissivity glass (low-E), incorporating the very latest advancements in thermally insulating glass coating technology. In the UK, PLANITHERM TOTAL+ is rapidly becoming recognised as the low-E glass of choice when it comes to achieving the best possible Window Energy Ratings.
PLANITHERM products are specifically designed to keep interiors more comfortable in the winter months and improve the home’s energy efficiency. With their transparent metallic coating they are able to reflect heat from radiators or fires back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the windows. At the same time, the coating allows free heat and light from the sun to pass through the glass, warming the room and further contributing to the efficiency of the windows.
Double glazing incorporating PLANITHERM TOTAL+ insulates three times more than single glazed units and at least 25% better than most currently installed double glazing. PLANITHERM products are the ideal low-E glass solution to meeting and exceeding the energy efficiency requirements of newly revised Building Regulations.
How it works
Clearly the most energy efficient window glass Developed specifically for the particular needs of the UK market, PLANITHERM TOTAL+ has been optimised for Window Energy Ratings (WERs). It combines excellent thermal insulation with high passive solar energy gain, making it the most energy efficient window glass available.
PLANITHERM TOTAL+ is a revolutionary high performance thermal insulating glass. Manufactured in the UK by Saint-Gobain Glass, PLANITHERM TOTAL+ incorporates the very latest advancements in glass coating technology. A combination of microscopically thin transparent metal oxide layers are applied under vacuum conditions to high quality clear float glass in the UK’s only magnetron coater.
The coated glass is later cut to size and incorporated into an insulating glass unit, usually forming the inner pane of the IGU which in turn is glazed into the window frame. Once installed, the high performance coating within the IGU reflects heat from radiators or fires back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the windows. At the same time this coating allows free energy and light from the sun to pass through the glass, warming the room. The combined effect contributes significantly to the energy efficiency of the windows, meaning that it takes less energy to maintain a warm, comfortable home.
PLANITHERM TOTAL+ boasts excellent thermal insulation. The high performance coating will achieve an optimum centre pane U-value of 1.2W/m2K (measurement of heat loss), easily outperforming the requirements of new Building Regulations and helping to achieve the best possible energy efficiency all round.
