A new standard in clear glass

PLANICLEAR is the latest generation of clear glass. The lower iron content of PLANICLEAR reduces the level of absorption - thereby increasing the level of solar gain (g value). PLANICLEAR also contributes to a higher level of Light transmission (LT). The lower iron content of PLANICLEAR reduces the level of green colouring so that the appearance is clearer and more neutral.

Range

PLANICLEAR is available in an extensive range of thickness suitable for a wide variety of applications. It can be toughened or laminated for safety benefits or silvered to produce mirrors. It is also suitable for screen printing, acid etching, decoration, sand blasting, lacquering or edgeworking etc.

Applications

PLANICLEAR can be used in applications where strong levels of clarity and neutrality are required including:

  • Windows and Doors
  • Mirrors
  • Laminated safety glass
  • Interior applications
  • Glass facades
  • Partitions
Benefits

The lower iron content of SGG PLANICLEAR reduces the level of absorption - thereby increasing the level of solar gain (g value). Increased passive solar heat gain can increase the overall energy balance of a window and lead to a positive impact on Window Energy Ratings.

PLANICLEAR also contributes to a higher level of Light Transmission (LT). This helps to increase the level of natural daylight and reduces the need for artificial lighting – creating a more comfortable environment.
