Pilkington Spacia ™ vacuum insulated glass: features and benefits
As approved suppliers of the world-renowned brand, Pilkington Spacia™ , we know a thing or two about its features, benefits and applications. In this everything-you-need-to-know article, we’ll be investigating exactly why Pilkington Spacia™ is first choice for vacuum insulated glass – and why it is perfect for sash windows in conservation areas.
The benefits of ultra-slim double glazing
Slim in appearance
The vacuum gives excellent thermal performance with a gap of only 0.2mm. Whereas typical double glazing is 24mm, Pilkington Spacia ™ has a total thickness of 6.5mm. This ultra-thin appearance ensures that the original beauty of the property is preserved.
The unit consists of an inner and outer pane with a vacuum in between, rather than the traditional air or gas you would typically see. This innovative technology results in an excellent thermal performance. The thermal performance of these ground-breaking window panes are better than that of traditional low-e double glazing and is four times better than single glazing.
Excellent acoustic performance
The vacuum is great for keeping out unwanted noise from neighbours and busy roads – a common issue with sash windows in period buildings.
Slim double glazing for listed buildings
Retaining the character and beauty of a period property is not only important to its owner, it is a priority for the government and English Heritage. Due to its ultra-slim appearance, Pilkington Spacia™ glass can usually be retro-glazed into the original frames.
Importantly, Pilkington Spacia™ meets the requirements for historic buildings and is perfect for properties in conservation areas. Used in Japan for over 10 years, Pilkington Spacia™ and is already market-leading in quality and performance. For more information contact Grosvenor Restoration
