Pilkington Planar™, the world’s leading structural glass system has evolved from the original patch plate system pioneered by Pilkington Architectural over 45 years ago.
With a proven track record in the most demanding applications, the Pilkington Planar™ system lets architects create a complete glass envelope for buildings, with façades on any plane. Which means you can build highly attractive working environments with more light and a greater feeling of space.
Support structures, located internally or externally, can be as subtle or as dominant as you require. Support can be derived from glass mullions, a conventional steel construction, or the highly versatile Pilkington Planar™ Tension Structure design or even a combination of all such schemes.
The fittings in the Pilkington Planar™ system offer an ideal balance between durability and appearance. Manufactured from 316 grade stainless steel, highly engineered and tested components allow the system to offer the smallest, most aesthetically pleasing fittings available, without compromising performance. Specially customised fittings are available.
Quality is assured using Pilkington glass, with fabrication and design carried out in an ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility in St Helens, UK. Operating under the ISO 14001 environmental management system.
