Frequently asked questions
Yes – we can double or triple glaze using standard techniques and including inert fillings as required.
Yes – we can supply transparent panels with coloured layers, or opaque panels with a colour to the outside. This will affect performance however this will be less than a 5% reduction.
We manufacture in standard sizes to minimise costs and standardise as much as possible. Non-standard sizes are available on request however please bear in mind logistical requirements such as shipping and manual handling. Panels cannot be cut to size on site due to tempered glass being used in their construction.
Currently due to wiring constraints this is not possible.
In theory, yes, however due to the mixed sizes of domestic home windows and the requirement for opening we do not find it to be cost effective.
Yes, however these can be difficult to connect electrically. We would recommend using as many standard shapes as possible and having non-standard shapes as dummy panels.
Yes, we can provide small samples of either 150 x 150 mm or 300 x 300 mm in varying transparencies. These are offered on a paid for or deposit scheme.
We try to limit projects to standard sizes as much as possible to keep the costs down, however as a general rule we can manufacture up to 3 x 2 m. Large panels tend to lead to increased transportation and handling costs. See our specification page for standard sizes.
No – we manufacture glass units in which the active solar layer is encapsulated between panes of glass.
We are researching film options though. Watch this space!
This depends on the length and width of the glass. Larger panes will require thicker glass.
Our standard sized PS-CT series glass is 7.1mm for single glazed.
Double glazed thickness for a standard PS-CT is 29.1mm made up of 7.1mm solar glass + 16mm argon + 6mm back glass
