Pilkington Spacia™ - Ultra-Thin, Energy-Efficient Vacuum Glazing

Pilkington Spacia™

Pilkington Spacia™ is the world’s first commercially available vacuum glazing. It offers the thermal performance of double glazing in the same thickness as a single pane of glass.

This means the insulated glass unit (IGU) is only 6.5mm thick, rather than the typical 24mm.

The air between the two panes of glass in a Pilkington Spacia™ IGU has been extracted to create a vacuum, making it more thermally efficient and leading to a significant reduction in heat transfer from the property.

Pilkington Spacia™ is the ideal solution when balancing historic preservation with comfort and environmental requirements in heritage buildings. It’s ultra-thin profile is a perfect solution for traditional and conservation properties, providing the most advanced solution to the age-old problem of maintaining aesthetics but improving performance.

Other uses for Pilkington Spacia™ include sliding box sash windows, or as one pane of a triple-glazed super window in new-build properties.
