We use SGG PLANITHERM Total glass in all our frames, double glazing with SGG PLANITHERM is the best way to improve the energy efficiency of your windows and make your home more comfortable. The SGG PLANITHERM products are specifically designed to keep interiors more comfortable in winter months and improve the energy efficiency of your home.
SGG PLANITHERM total is a revolutionary high performance low emissivity glass, or “low E” glass and usually forms the inner pane of a window.
The SGG PLANITHERM Total Glass is an extremely versatile product suitable for a wide range of domestic and commercial applications including:
- Windows and Skylights
- Patio doors & French doors
- Conservatories and sunrooms

SGG PLANITHERM Glass Performance
Double glazed units incorporating SGG PLANITHERM Total offer up to three times more insulation than standard double glazing and significantly better thermal insulation compared to hard coated low E products
- Improved thermal insulation - reduces heat loss more effectively than traditional low-E coatings
- Promotes passive solar heat gain - free heat from the sun passes easily through the glass helping to warm your home
- Improved energy efficiency - reduced need for heating helps to save energy and protect the environment whilst saving you money on heating bills
- More comfortable rooms - improved thermal insulation means fewer cold spots and drafts near windows and doors
- Less condensation - the inner surface of the glass stays warmer reducing internal condensation and prolonging the life of your window
SGG PLANITHERM Appearance
- No unsightly tint - Unlike traditional low-E coatings that suffer from an unsightly yellow tint, SGG PLANITHERM looks very clear. This means your curtains or Georgian Bars will not look dirty or discoloured
- More light - less tint also means more light can enter the room, making it more comfortable and luminous
- No 'haze' effect - SGG PLANITHERM does not suffer from the unsightly haze effect.
Energy Rated Windows
Energy efficiency is becoming increasingly more important in this world of rising fuel costs so it is important that you make the right decision when it comes to the energy ratings of your windows.
To enable customers to make the best choice the British Fenestration Rating Council (BRFC) have introduced a rating scheme where A is the most energy efficient and G is the least, these are similar to the ratings seen on white goods like washing machines and is there to help consumers to readily compare the energy efficiency of competing products using a recognisable mark/grade for everyone to understand.
We have achieved the A rating window energy rating (WER) on all the windows we manufacture. This is the highest industry rating available and we offer this as standard on all our UPVC casement windows.
Heat passes through the fabric of your home, and through your doors and windows. How quickly it passes through them depends on their thermal performance. Commonly referred to as U-value, it shows the resistance to the flow of heat from inside your home to the outside. Quite simply, the more a wall or window resists this flow of heat the lower its U-value.
- A rating - The highest industry rating, and is our standard on all our UPVC casement windows
- B rating - The standard that many window manufacturers supply
- C rating - The recommended threshold for energy saving windows
To enable customers to make the best choice the British Fenestration Ratings Council (BFRC) have introduced a ratings scheme to assess how energy efficient windows are. In addition to the U-value, the rating also measures a window's air tightness and its ability to allow solar gain which will help you keep warmer in winter.
