Saint-Gobain Planitherm Total
SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL is one of the most energy efficiency glass products available helping to improve the window energy ratings of your glazing and making your house more comfortable:
Improved thermal insulation - reduces heat loss more effectively than traditional low-E coatings
Promotes passive solar heat gain - free heat from the sun passes easily through the glass helping to warm your house
Improved energy efficiency - reduced need for heating helps to save energy and protect the environment whilst saving you money on heating bills
More comfortable rooms - improved thermal insulation means fewer cold spots and drafts near windows and doors
Less condensation - the inner surface of the glass stays warmer reducing internal condensation and prolonging the life of your window
No unsightly tint - Unlike traditional low-E coatings that suffer from an unsightly yellow tint, SGG PLANITHERM looks very clear. This means your curtains or Georgian Bars will not look dirty or discoloured
More light - less tint also means more light can enter the room, making it more comfortable and luminous
No 'haze' effect - SGG PLANITHERM does not suffer from the unsightly tint commonly.
The SGG PLANITHERM family of products are specifically designed to keep interiors more comfortable in winter months and improve the energy efficiency of your house.
Glass of this type is commonly known as low emissivity glass, or low-E glass.
How does it work?
SGG PLANITHERM products have a transparent metallic coating that reflects heat from radiators or fires back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the windows. At the same time it allows free heat and light from the sun (known as passive solar heat gain) to pass through the glass, warming your house and further contributing to the energy efficiency of your windows.
