Self Cleaning Glass

We use the Pilkington Activ™ range of Self-cleaning and solar control products. These can be used in almost all exterior glazing situations. They are particularly well-suited to glazing that is hard to reach, such as skylights. Self-cleaning glass can be used almost anywhere, spending less time perched on top of a ladder and more time admiring the views. Pilkington self-cleaning glass ensures that your roof lights look clean and clear all year round. Click here to find out more.
