Thermal Control Glass - PLANITHERM 4S

Combines excellent thermal properties (1.0 u-value) & solar control (blocking 56% of the sun’s heat) - ideal for conservatories

PLANITHERM 4S is a new concept glass for conservatories that has both high performance low-e properties but also solar control.

Use of PLANITHERM 4S throughout a conservatory maximises the chances of being cool in the summer and warm in the winter.


Our PLANITHERM Range

The PLANITHERM range of products consists of:

  • PLANITHERM TOTAL+ - ideal for North facing elevations to capture the most of the sun's heat
  • PLANITHERM ONE  - Ideal for south facing elevations or large bi-fold doors
  • PLANITHERM 4S - Ideal for conservatories
  • PLANITHERM ULTRA N - Ideal for commercial buildings

Where can PLANITHERM 4S be used?

PLANITHERM 4S has been designed for external use in conservatory or sunroom roofs and sidewalls.

With consumers increasingly demanding high performance conservatory solutions to suit their modern lifestyle needs, it is no longer acceptable that such an important investment be unuseable for 9 months of the year due to excessively warm or cold conditions.

Results from a conservatory glazing study show that using SGG PLANITHERM 4S throughout can reduce peak summer temperatures by up to 13˚C when compared to traditional low-E glazing. Overall, the improved temperature stability throughout hot or cold periods has the potential to halve the energy required to maintain a comfortable environment all year round.

How to handle & process PLANITHERM 4S

PLANITHERM 4S must always be assembled into a double or triple glazed unit. The coating is generally placed on face 3 of the unit in a roof and face 2 of a unit for sidewalls. Appearance may vary slightly, so it is important to maintain consistent coating positioning throughout a particular façade.
