The quality of glazing in a building can have an impact on its operating and maintenance costs. As Europe’s number one glassmaker and world leader in coated glass, Saint-Gobain Glass guarantees a supply of high performing and long-life glass products, ensuring building protection and lower replacement frequency.
Some of our products, made of sustainable building materials, can contribute to minimizing life cycle costs while maximizing critical value, for example:
- BIOCLEAN reduces window maintenance. Designed for exterior use, this solution can reduce the frequency and cost of cleaning because less dirt and grime adhere to the glass, resulting in less frequent use of water and detergent.
- CLIMAPLUS/CLIMATOP SCREEN integrated system enables the management of daylight and heat, without the need of costly additional blinds or curtains, and is maintenance free (the blinds cannot be damaged as they are protected by the glass).
