On the go specifying tool
Glass specifying tool Pilkington Spectrum is now available to use on-the-go following the launch of a new smartphone app.
The app is available for download on iPhones, iPads and Android devices, and allows users to find Pilkington products that most closely match their project requirements.
The calculator was previously only available through the Pilkington website, but has now been optimised for use on mobile devices to make the process of specifying glass quicker and easier.
Users of the app can search parameters including U-value, g-value, light transmittance and sound insulation to help find products that meet their needs.
The app can be used to specify glass for a variety of configurations, including single glazing, insulating glass units (double, triple and quadruple glazing), secondary glazing, and double window configurations. Customers and specifiers can build up their own library of favourite configurations and, for CE Marking, access the Declaration of Performance. Results can be emailed direct to the mailbox.
The database includes a comprehensive range of Pilkington products, provided by benefit-led categories such as solar control, thermal insulation and self-cleaning.
Phil Brown, European regulatory marketing manager at Pilkington, said: “We’ve received great feedback for Pilkington Spectrum over the past few months, but we wanted to make sure it is accessible to everyone, no matter where they are. We’re pleased that the new Spectrum app now offers customers an advanced, online technical service that can be accessed via mobile device.
“The app will make it quicker and easier for users to find and select the products they need, regardless of their level of glass product knowledge.”
