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.
