Leading sealed unit manufacturer Glass Systems is delighted to launch energy efficient Pilkington energiKare™ to its customers, ready for the implementation of amendments to Part L in October 2010.
Operating from three sites in South Wales, including its flagship facility in Swansea, Glass Systems provides insulating glass units to domestic, commercial, new build and local authority customers.
Glass Systems Managing Director, Alan Atkinson, said “At Glass Systems we want to make sure we are doing all we can to educate, prepare and support our customers for the implementation of Part L amendments in October. By including Pilkington energiKare™ in our range, the insulating glass units we manufacture will allow our customers to market fully Part L compliant windows with a Window Energy Rating (WER) of C and above.”
Andy McDowell, Pilkington, said “It’s fantastic that so many more companies are now coming on board to supply Pilkington energiKare™. Glass Systems regularly manufactures more than 28,000 insulating glass units per week and, by adding Pilkington energiKare™ to its portfolio, will be helping more homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their properties with the security of dealing with Pilkington, one of the best known brands in the industry.
Pilkington energiKareTM combines two leading Pilkington products, Pilkington OptiwhiteTM and Pilkington K GlassTM, and can reduce net heat loss from windows by up to 90 per cent, when upgrading from single glazing. At the same time, Pilkington energiKare™ allows in more heat and light from the sun, contributing positively to a home’s energy requirements.
