Solar control glazing at Kent furniture showroom

Solar control glazing at Kent furniture showroom

4,500 sq ft of advanced double glazed units from Pilkington were chosen for Kent-based contract furniture supplier Pineapple Contracts’ four-storey offices and showroom section of the building.

The client wanted a wall of glazing across the full height and width of the front of the building to create bright and airy spaces and sweeping vistas for occupants.

For the inner pane, Pilkington Optitherm™ S1 Plus was used, a high performance low-emissivity glass that uses an advanced off-line coating to help units achieve overall U values as low as 1.0 W/m2K.

This was combined with an outer pane of Pilkington Eclipse Advantage™ Arctic Blue – a body-tinted glass featuring an on-line solar control coating that helps reflect much of the energy in the sun’s rays while remaining highly transparent to visible light.
