Acorn Glass products offer a durable, coated, neutral coloured, self-cleaning glass. Compared to ordinary float glass it provides clearer vision during and after rainfall and also requires less frequent cleaning. It has good scratch resistance and durability, and in most circumstances can be treated the same as ordinary float glass. It is available in a clear, blue, and neutral finish which is a very light grey glass substrate.
Under normal conditions the unique coating destroys organic contaminants and increases the water sheeting action on the coated surface. This allows dirt to be washed easily from the surface and should greatly reduce the need for manual cleaning.
The manufacturing of self-cleaning insulated double glazed units is usually incorporated with high performance low E emissivity glass. With our unique u-value analyses computer programme, we are able to produce high performance insulated glass units using argon or Krypton Gas and warm edge spacer bars. We can produce these products for multiple glazing requirements be it new build or renovation of old windows, doors or roofs. These units can be installed in Upvc, aluminium, wood or metal. At the manufacturing stage of windows, doors and roofs, make sure that the rebates are adequate to except double glazed units including glazing compounds and seals a minimum of 18mm.
To ensure we acquire the best quality with consistent delivery, both Pilkington glass and Saint-Gobain glass are our preferred suppliers for self-cleaning and low E emissivity glass options.
