Product Description! Planibel A is an improved version of Planibel G fasT (Planibel Low-E)! Planibel A was initially launched in the UK market as it was specifically developed to comply with the higher ratings in the Window Energy Rating system (WER)*! WER = A-G rating scale similar to those used for appliances which helps consumers to: • Assess the total energy performance of domestic windows (‘A’ rating being the most efficient) • Choose the right products: Efficiency of the window not only in terms of glass performance but considering the total IGU structure: • Glass combination: use of Low-E coating and extra-clear external sheet • Type of frame: PVCu > Aluminium/Wood frames • Type of spacer: Warm edge > Aluminium spacers • Air filling: Argon > air filled * PLANIBEL A is subjected to the same sales restric9ons as PLANIBEL G
Product Description! Since 1 October 2010, UK building regulations have required a minimum WER band C for windows, roofs windows and roof lights! Combining a low U-value with a high solar factor, PLANIBEL A* is compliant with those targets, especially when combined with PLANIBEL CLEARVISION * PLANIBEL A is subject to the same sales restric9ons as PLANIBEL G.
Performance & Benefits! Performance: Glass Values Improved U-value combined with higher solar factor to maximise free solar heat again
Performance & Benefits! Performance: Planibel A in WER rating In most leading frames (e.g. PVCu): typical performance for 4-16-4 • Planibel A # 3 (Ar 90%) and Warm edge spacer and Planibel Clearvision (as external sheet) A • Planibel A # 3 (Ar 90%) and Warm edge spacer or Planibel Clearvision (as external sheet) B • 1/ Planibel A # 3 (Ar 90%) and Aluminium spacer and Planibel Clear (as external sheet) • 2/ Planibel A # 3 (Air) and Aluminium spacer and Planibel Clearvision (as external sheet) • 3/ Planibel A # 3 (Air) and Warm edge spacer C and Planibel Clear (as external sheet) Minimum target of C rating can be reached by playing with the key elements of the DGU
Performance & Benefits! Benefits: Glass performance • High solar factor for maximum free solar heat gain (SF: 78% with external sheet in Planibel Clearvision) • Low U-value of 1.4 W/m²K (with argon filling 90%) • Neutral appearance
Performance & Benefits! Benefits: Processing • Fast technology: • Coating can be toughened on both sides (opposite side and coating against rollers) • Easy processing as clear float (no need for convection) • Fast toughenable cycle: thanks to higher emissivity • up to 15% over traditional hard coatings • up to 25% compared with alternative soft coatings • One single version: toughenable or not. Used in single glazing, IGU or laminated • Improved resistance to scratches - No need for cover sheet • No edge stripping • Much longer shelf life (vs. a soft coating)
