SGG Bioclean as seen on TV!
2005, oct. 10
As the number of Home Improvement programmes on TV grows, the trend for “self-build” housing continues to climb. Programmes such as Channel 4`s Grand Designs inspires a number of maverick, visionary, determined (and sometimes foolhardy) individuals to take on the challenge of building their “dream home”
Recently featured on Grand Designs is a prime example of such a project. Set on the Devon coast, the owners of this seaside house wanted to make the most of the stunning sea views – and decided to make the south-facing elevation completely of glass. The two key criteria for this wall of glass were: to avoid heat loss, and to not have to spend endless hours cleaning dirty windows.
Saint-Gobain Glass UK recommended the use of SGG Planitherm Futur N, their advance performance low-e glass to retain as much heat as possible, and SGG Bioclean self-cleaning glass. Bioclean was ideal for this situation, because it uses UV light to break down dirt on the glass, then rinses clean when it rains or is sprayed with water.
Susan Fitzpatrick, Product Manager for Saint Gobain Glass UK says, “This was a great Team success. The float glass was from our Eggborough plant, the huge double glazed units were manufactured by Solaglas Leeds, specialists in oversized units and the external and internal glass balustrades were supplied by Solaglas Bristol.
Look out for a feature on the house in the January edition of the Grand Designs magazine, or contact Saint-Gobain Glass UK for further details on SGG Planitherm Futur N or SGG BIoclean.
