Overview: The Sun Management Glass System™...only from Pilkington.
Different kinds of glass have different properties, advantages and benefits.
And the Pilkington Sun Management™ System is a powerful energy management tool that lets you take advantage of these unique properties to create the ideal combination of aesthetics, performance and affordability for each individual project.
Pilkington Eclipse Gold provides a rich glamorous appearance unlike any other product of its kind. It allows high natural daylight transmittance which enhances visual performance and lowers artificial lighting requirements. Combine Pilkington Eclipse Gold with Pilkington Energy Advantage Low-E to enhance your u-factor and reduce solar heat gain.
The Pilkington Solar-E family of products provides lower solar heat gain, lower reflectivity and glare control. Available on a palette of natural colors - Arctic Blue, Blue-Green, EverGreen and Grey, to accompany Pilkington Solar-E Clear and our other lines of pyrolytic low-e products.
Pilkington Energy Advantage Low-E Glass is one of the most color-neutral Low-E glass products on the market today. Use Pilkington Energy Advantage on the #4 surface with 4th Surface Technology to significantly improve U-Factor
High Performance Tinted Float Glass. Richer than pale blue, softer than deep blue, Pilkington Arctic Blue Glass is a unique blue tinted float engineered for high daylight transmittance, good solar control and cool, comfortable color.
High Performance Tinted Float Glass. Pilkington EverGreen Glass blocks 86% of the UV light, transmits 66% of the visible light, yet offers nearly 20% less solar heat gain than other green tinted glasses on the market today.
Pilkington SuperGrey provides the best solar control of any uncoated float glass. The deep grey color provides privacy from the outside and reduced see through. The glass softens bright daylight and reduces glare with 9 percent light transmittance making it appropriate for use in skylights or near computer monitors.
Heavy Clear Float from Pilkington - the only complete heavy float line manufactured in the U.S. - is available for a wide variety of commercial glazing possibilities. Ideal for large, frameless expanses of glass in lobby and entrance area applications, it offers superior strength, greater spans, reduced deflection, high daylight transmittance and enhanced noise suppression.
Add a splash of natural color to your design with a popular color choice that is aesthetically pleasing and performance driven.
When you’re looking for a classic soft color choice with performance benefits, Pilkington Optifloat Green Glass is the perfect selection. Reduce unwanted heat gain while allowing high natural daylight transmittance. Enhance visual performance and lower artificial lighting needs.
Pilkington OptiView Glass reduces visible light reflectance to less than 2%, while blocking more than 99% of UV transmittance. Pilkington OptiView Glass provides excellent acoustic control, and superior safety and security performance. Pilkington OptiView Glass is ideal for museums and displays, retail store fronts, showrooms, and a host of applications where an anti-reflective product was never an option.
When true color is of paramount importance , Pilkington Optiwhite™ is the perfect solution. Noticeably clearer than ordinary standard clear float glass, the colorlessness of Pilkington Optiwhite™ is especially apparent when it is combined with white or light colors, and when exposed, polished edges are in view. As a result, Pilkington Optiwhite™ offers enhanced clarity and aesthetics for everything from photovoltaic modules and solar collectors to showroom and furniture applications.
Ideal for surveillance, security and administrative applications where discreet observation is required, Pilkington Mirropane™ Transparent Mirror looks like a mirror in a well-illuminated room but works like an ordinary tinted window from the other side. Formed by chemical vapor deposition on 1/4 " (6mm) Pilkington Mirropane™ Transparent Mirror can be laminated with the pyrolytic side out for higher security.
The Pilkington line of Texture Glass products provides a range of designs and varying degrees of translucency. These products combine elegance and decorative effects, and give architects and designers functional options that emphasize teh natural light-enhancing properties of glass. Pilkington Texture Glass is a rolled, textured glass which has a specific pattern or design impressed into one surface. Pilkington Texture Glass allows the passage of light, but varying levels of obscuration, depending on the depth and configuration of the pattern. It's available in numerous designs and finishes, including an antique style that recreates the unique appearance of traditional hand-blown glasses.
Pilkington Optiphon™ is a high quality acoustic laminated glass that offers excellent noise reduction without compromising on light transmittance or impact performance. The desired acoustic performance can be achieved through combining various thicknesses of glass with a special PVB (polyvinylbutyral) interlayer. With a large variety of product combinations, Pilkington Optiphon™ offers the opportunity to achieve specific noise reduction requirements.
Pilkington Spacia™ is the world’s first commercially-available vacuum glazing. It offers the thermal performance of conventional double glazing in only the same thickness as single glass. Pilkington Spacia™ provides a real solution to the problems of balancing historical preservation with modern comfort and environmental requirements.
Pilkington Pyrostop® fire resistant glass is composed of Pilkington OptiWhite low iron glass for the best optical clarity and high visible light transmission, is classified by Underwriters Laboratories for 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes, and is Cat II human impact rated by the CPSC.
Invented by Pilkington over 35 years ago, Pilkington Planar systems provide a complete glass envelope for building structures, satisfying the most demanding and creative architectural requirements. Façades can be on any plane either vertical, horizontal or multi angled.
Pilkington has been proud to be the technological leader in glass manufacturing for many years. Whether it’s improved
processes such as the float glass manufacturing process; of which produce more than 95% of glass worldwide, advanced
coating technologies (pyrolytic or “hard-coat” coatings that require significantly less energy to produce than soft coated
glass), or our wide range of solar and thermal control glass products, Pilkington is proud to lead in areas of environmental
consciousness, sustainable building, and green building initiatives.
