How Planitherm can help your home?
A new addition to the industry, Planitherm glass can help significantly reduce the average cost of heating a home. As one of the only approved installers of this new glass, Ecoframe is helping homes in Yorkshire slash their heating bills dramatically.
What is Planitherm ?
An industry leading energy saving glass that uses advanced coatings to retain warmth whilst capturing the heat from natural daylight. Planitherm is an energy saving window glass that can make homes warmer and help lower heating bills.
For the same costs as standard glazed, less energy efficient windows, Planitherm can help installers provide homes with A rated windows in any window frame.
Europe’s best selling high performance, low-emissive E-glass, Planitherm uses the latest thermally insulating glass coating technology to keep interiors more comfortable and improve energy efficiency.
Three times more efficient than standard double glazing and specially manufactured by Saint-Gobain for the UK market, Planitherm is the ideal low-E-solution to meeting and exceeding the newly revised Building Regulations energy efficiency requirements.
Revised in 2010, the government Building Regulations Part L set new standards for energy conservation and reductions in CO2 emissions within the built environment. Insulating products must be used in the construction of new buildings extensively, and alternative energy production methods must be explored. Specially manufactured, Planitherm’s thermal insulation is more than 2 times greater than single glazing and at least 25% more efficient than double-glazed units.
Planitherm can be combined with other glazing options to give a variety of benefits which include, self-cleaning or solar control, safety and security, acoustic insulation and obscured and/or decorative glazing. As the most energy efficient window glass available, the combination of thermal insulation and high solar heat gain is ideal for those looking to reduce energy costs.
Recognised as a crucial component in improving the energy efficiency of windows, Planitherm can help windows qualify for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended status.
