Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, has signed up four new dealers to supply Pilkington Spacia™ to customers across the UK.

Pilkington Spacia™ is a vacuum insulated unit that has the thickness of single glazing but the insulating performance of double glazing, having a Ug-value of 1.1W/(m2.K). Standard Pilkington Spacia™ STII has an overall thickness of 6.2mm, which is roughly a quarter of the thickness of standard double-glazing units.

The new distributors are Energlaze, Gowecroft Joinery, Grosvenor Restoration and Wm. Mallen Joinery. The firms each have extensive experience in installing the product and are each supported by the manufacturer’s own team.

Tony Smith, business development manager at Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, said: “Maintaining and refurbishing older, traditional buildings has to be done with a great deal of sensitivity, especially when it comes to the glazing, which often defines the aesthetics of a building more than any other element.”

“Of course, upgrading the performance of the windows is also one of the most important steps in improving the energy efficiency and acoustics of a property, so it’s often high on the wish list for those looking after older buildings.”

“These carefully selected distributors of Pilkington Spacia™ are all specialists in glazing for conservation buildings, and they are also directly supported with advice and guidance from us. The product and service offering we’ve created through these collaborations will help make boosting the performance of glazing in older buildings as effortless as it can be.”
