Pilkington to Spread the Word about Their New Energy Efficient IGU's

There is still time to join Pilkington on the road as it tours the country to spread the word about its new energy efficient IGU - Pilkington energiKare. Places are still available at the seminars, which will be held at locations across the UK throughout October, but attendees need to be quick as spaces are being snapped up fast.

At each of the seven events, window installers can be advised about the benefits of the product and how they can get involved in this exciting initiative. 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, Tuesday 30th October

Andy McDowell said: “We can see from the numbers of people who have already signed up to the events that the level of interest in this new product is high. We are also receiving lots of questions about Pilkington energiKare and its applications. At the events we will be offering face to face information and advice, therefore responding to an individual’s needs quickly and effectively.”

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.

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.
