In the first week of the launch of Pilkington Activ™ Blue, the exciting new self-cleaning and solar control conservatory roof glass, Tudor Glass of Bury in Greater Manchester sold three conservatory roofs with the product installed. Tudor Glass is a well established sealed unit manufacturer and has been trading since 1985. “We have always used Pilkington glass in our operations,” comments Steve Simpson of the company. “The demand for the Pilkington Activ™ Blue is now increasing as the value of the glass becomes better known and we are supplying more and more units to meet demand.”
Pilkington Activ™ Blue has been specifically developed to maintain the appearance of conservatory roofs whilst at the same time, keep interiors cooler. The glass has an aesthetically pleasing ice blue tint and offers the renowned self-cleaning properties of the Pilkington Activ™ brand, with the addition of excellent solar control properties and good light transmission. Providing performance for the lifetime of the conservatory roof, Pilkington Activ™ Blue significantly reduces solar gain within the structure.
The glass is available from stock and can be processed and manufactured into sealed units without the need for special handling or installation. There is no limited shelf life or requirements for edge deletion and the product can effortlessly and easily be combined in units with other glasses.
For the growing glass conservatory roof industry, Pilkington Activ™ Blue offers a unique high performance glass that adds visual appeal as well as offering a practical solution for facilitating cleaning on hard to reach roofs, keeping them free from mould and other typical organic contamination.
