Pilkington energiKare Triple
The choice for the best possible energy rating performance and highest levels of
energy efficiency in low/zero carbon homes.
These high performance units optimise the balance between u-values and g-values to
maximise energy efficiency.
An IGU comprising of two panes of Pilkington K Glass and a third pane of Pilkington
Optiwhite with Argon gas fill.
Very low u-values combined with high solar gain give optimal energy efficiency.
Suitable for low and zero carbon homes as well as more traditional new build properties.
Capable of meeting the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes, now and could
in the future without the need for soft coat options.
How it Works
Pilkington energyKare reduces the amount of heat lost through windows and still allows
heat in from the sun, an effect known as solar gain.
Pilkington energyKare achieves this because it contains two special types of glass.
Pilkington K Glass, the UK’s best-selling low-emissivity glass which helps prevent
heat escaping from homes.
Pilkington Optiwhite is a special “extra-clear” type of glass. It increases the degree
of solar heat gain and makes homes warmer using free energy from the sun.
Pilkington energyKare Triple is a triple glazed unit, comprising of panes of Pilkington
K Glass and an outer pane of Pilkington Optiwhite with argon gas fill in both cavities.
Overall thickness of the unit can be optimised to fit a variety of framing and bead
This combination of thermal insulation and solar gain allows Pilkington energyKare
to make a reduction to home energy usage, as the solar gain is greater than the heat
High performance triple glazed units optimise the balance between u-values and g-values
to maximise efficiency.
Suitable for low and zero carbon homes and for use in new builds. Also suitable for
use in existing homes where framing systems allow.
Capable of meeting the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes, without the
need for soft coat options.
Far exceeds BFRC WER A rating performance and Passive Haus requirement levels.
Designed to achieve increased solar gain and low carbon SAP scores, allowing larger
glazed areas without compromising the energy efficiency.
Use of Pilkington Optiwhite and Pilkington K Glass further improves solar gain and
Warm edge spacer bar options are available for even better energy-efficiency and
reduced risk of edge condensation.
Mid-pane is toughened as standard to reduce risk of thermal breakage.
