TuffX has announced the official launch of its electrically heated glass product, Glow, backed up by a package of training on the features and installation of the product.
Commercial director Paul Higgins said: “With traditional heaters and gas boilers being recognised as inefficient, there is an urgent need for effective and affordable alternatives. Glow offers a solution that is like underfloor heating in that it doesn’t require wall space but is also not prohibitively expensive. Utilising infrared technology, it is thermostat controlled like existing familiar heating systems.”
The system is based on a sealed unit that is layered with conductive coatings to emit radiant heat.
Paul continued: “With this advanced technology it can be utilised as a primary heating source with temperatures reaching 35-40°C and has the added benefit of eliminating unsightly condensation.
“The coatings we have used are completely undetectable. From a homeowner’s perspective the glass will look the same as that found in any other bi-fold door.
“The Glow heated glass system is fully compliant, conforming to EN12150 and EN1279 Parts 1-4 and is a fantastic solution for the upcoming Future Homes Standard as it’s a direct replacement for the soon to be obsolete gas heating systems.”
Glow heated glass for bi-fold doors will be open to applications for approved trade partners from December.
