On the road to energy savings with Pilkington


Andy McDowell, IGU Product Manager, is touring the country with Pilkington to spread the word about its new energy efficient IGU - Pilkington energiKare.

Pilkington is touring the country to spread the word about its new energy efficient IGU - Pilkington energiKare. The seminars will be held at locations across the UK throughout October. Each event will advise window installers about the benefits of the product and how they can get involved in this exciting initiative.

Pilkington energiKare, in conjunction with most UK profile systems, allows window companies to easily achieve a Window Energy Rating (WER) of C or above. In this way, windows are then eligible to apply for Energy Saving Recommended status from the Energy Saving Trust.

The events begin on 9th of October in York, where Andy McDowell, IGU Product Manager, will explain the background to the product and why both IGU manufacturers and window companies should get involved. Anne Quayle, Sales & Marketing Support Manager, will outline the substantial marketing campaign, including TV advertising, which will support Pilkington energiKare and introduce the new product to homeowners.

The full schedule of events is as follows:

  • York, Tuesday 9th October
  • Glasgow, Wednesday 10th October
  • Birmingham, Thursday 11th October
  • Bristol, Tuesday 16th October
  • Gatwick Airport, Wednesday 17th October
  • Manchester Airport, Thursday 18th October
  • Norwich, Wednesday 30th Octoberr

Andy McDowell said: “The level of interest in this new product is high and lots of questions are being asked about Pilkington energiKare and its applications. By offering face to face information and advice we can respond to an individual’s needs quickly and effectively.”

Pilkington energiKare comprises 4mm Pilkington K Glass and 4mm Pilkington Optiwhite and must be filled with argon gas, conforming to EN1279 Part 3. When combined using a standard aluminium spacer bar, rather than a more expensive warm edge spacer, it offers an easy to process, cost effective product that is readily available throughout the UK – both from Pilkington and from Pilkington energiKare Partner Processors. What’s more, with no significant process change for processors, Pilkington energiKare IGUs help window fabricators and installers achieve the inspirational band C rating, hassle free.
