The Pilkington Group, is based in St Helens and has offices at the NSG Group’s European Technical Centre situated at nearby Lathom, Lancashire. Even in these recessionary times Pilkington employs around 3,000 people across the UK, in activities ranging from the manufacture of float, rolled and wired glass to glass processing and merchanting, automotive original equipment and automotive glass replacement manufacture.

The Hazlemere Group are authorized Pilkington energikare partners, offering their entire range of glazing products. In addition, Hazlemere offer the Pilkington range of textured (or obscure) glass. Whether it be for privacy, pure style or to allow more light into internal rooms, decorative obscure glass gives you a whole range of attractive options. In fact, Pilkington manufacturers no fewer than eighteen different patterned glass designs — from classic to contemporary. Pilkington Texture (Patterned) Glass offers privacy and style throughout the home.

Pilkington offer five levels of privacy glass, graded from 1 (least obscuration) to 5 (greatest obscuration). There are 12 original patterns in their main range and 6 in their replacement range. Toughened or laminated glass versions are available for safety and/or security. All are suitable for double glazing.

However you use Pilkington glass it is essential for safety and performance reasons that it is correctly specified and installed. Common areas of impact risk, where it is recommended that impact safety glass to EN 12600 is installed. These include, glazed doors, glazing adjacent to doors, low level glazing, bathroom areas, protective barriers, furniture and cabinets.

Customers can view the range of Pilkington obscure glass available any day of the week at Hazlemere Windows home improvement showroom on Cressex Business Park. I would certainly recommend a visit before choosing obscure glass for windows, doors and conservatories, as it is better to look at actual samples of the Pilkington textured glass, than to choose from a printed brochure, which can never replace the actual look and feel of the glass itself. More importantly, seeing the actual obscure glass samples on display in Hazlemere’s 4,000 square foot showroom, shows you exactly the extend of how obscure, the obscure glass is. For example, the last thing you want in your bathroom is “see through” obscure glass!
