PLANICLEAR® – High Quality Clear Glass

The trend for increased levels of natural daylight in buildings, and more neutral-looking, clear glass for extra clarity can be met with PLANICLEAR®

It is a clear float glass with a lower iron content* which reduces the level of green colouring so that the appearance is clearer and more neutral. This difference is particularly noticeable when viewing the edge of the glass.

The lower iron content of PLANICLEAR® float glass reduces the level of heat 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 allows higher levels of light to transmit into a room, increasing the amount of natural daylight and reducing the need for artificial lighting. This can create a more comfortable environment and help to reduce energy costs.

PLANICLEAR® Advantages

The lower iron content of PLANICLEAR® clear float glass helps to contribute to the aesthetics of a building or interior design project.

PLANICLEAR® allows heat and daylight to enter a room, which can help to reduce the cost of artificial lighting and heating.

Thanks to its transparent properties, lower iron glazing such as PLANICLEAR® clear float glass has the ability to provide daylight into buildings and a visual connection to the outside world. This can provide multiple benefits to building occupants including improved comfort and increased visual quality of internal spaces.
