Choosing construction products, systems and processes which are easy to maintain and limit the environmental impact of maintenance.

Our contribution

Saint-Gobain has some products in its portfolio contributing to facilitate maintenance of the building:

  • Choosing the low-maintenance self-cleaning glass SGG BIOCLEAN, ensures that the frequency of cleaning is reduced by 2 to 4 times — the quantity of detergent is reduced and therefore, the maintenance need of the building also decreases. The BIOCLEAN coating with the combined natural action of the sun and the rain keeps the glass cleaner for longer and makes it easier to clean. This glass is best for areas that are difficult to access like the large façades.
  • Additionally, there's another product which facilitates building maintenance — it is our CLIMAPLUS/CLIMATOP SCREEN. This integrated system manages the daylight and heat, and you don't even need to install costly blinds or curtains. Also, it is maintenance-free (if you decide to install blinds, it won't be damaged because it is protected by the glass).
