Visitors at 100% Detail will be switched on to all things Pilkington thanks to the glass manufacturer sponsoring the internet café. The event, which takes place at Earls Court, London, runs from Thursday September 20 to Sunday September 23, is an exhibition presenting the latest building products for architects, specifiers and housebuilders.
Visitors logging onto the internet in the café will be taken to the Pilkington website which contains an area specially dedicated to architects and specifiers - www.pilkington4architects.co.uk . The re-vamped website has detailed information about glass and its benefits, technical data, as well as a breakdown of the latest building regulations and their implications for glazing. A Pilkington product directory with facts, performance data and downloadable literature is also available.
Other Pilkington tools that are easily accessible on the site include Spectrum and Specifire. Spectrum is a Windows-based glass performance model which enables the theoretical construction of Insulating Glass Units (IGUs) to be calculated without the need to construct and measure glazing. Specifire is an authoritative source of information detailing the entire Pilkington range of fire-resistant glass. This makes the specification process easier and more accurate to ensure that the correct glazing is specified.
Visitors will also be able to email the Pilkington technical helpline for specific advice and technical enquiries, as well as order samples and literature by emailing Pilkington@respond.uk.com.
Anne Quayle, Pilkington Sales and Marketing Support Manager for the UK and Ireland, said: “Over the past year or so our website has seen massive improvements and we have done a lot of work into making sure there is something on the site for everyone throughout the specification chain. We want to emphasise to specifiers the benefits of using our updated website and by sponsoring the internet café at 100% Detail we are giving them the opportunity to try it out for themselves.”
