Glass manufacturer launches glass infrared radiators 

Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, has launched a range of glass infrared radiators to support demand for low-carbon heating solutions in homes and non-domestic buildings. 

The company revealed its new Pilkington HeatComfort radiator at the Futurebuild show in London, ahead of a full launch planned for the product this Summer.  

HeatComfort falls under the HomeComfort product range, set to be launched by the NSG Group later in 2023. The HomeComfort product range brings features such as connectivity, sustainability, and comfort into homes and commercial buildings through glass products. 

The slimline radiator panel uses the glass manufacturer’s electrically conductive NSG TEC™ glass to convert electricity into heat, which directly heats objects and people inside rooms. The glass radiator will be supplied to UK commercial and domestic builders by specialist infrared heating distributor G3D Heating Solutions Ltd.  The panels are single sealed units with wall brackets and will be available in a variety of sizes and power ratings. 

The slimline panels have curved, polished edges and will be available with a polar white or mirrored glass front. The mirrored version uses Pilkington Mirropane™ Chrome Plus, which is resistant to corrosion and humidity, making it suitable for use in bathrooms.  

Leo Pyrah, Marketing and VA Manager at Pilkington UK, said: “Infrared heating has an essential role to play in the future low-carbon heating mix, as the phasing out of natural gas systems picks up pace in the years to come.  

“Pilkington HeatComfort Panels are a practical and sustainable heating alternative to traditional radiators. It’s a low investment way of making immediate carbon savings in buildings, without the need for significant installation work. Meanwhile, it’s unobtrusive design helps enhance the aesthetical appeal of spaces. 

“This innovation builds on our considerable experience in manufacturing heated glass for automotive and specialised transport, and naturally complements our existing glass technologies enabling sustainable change – from solar photovoltaics to thermal insulation glass.” 

Paul Boden (Managing Director) at G3D Heating Solutions Ltd, said: “G3D has worked with Pilkington UK to develop these sleek and stylish infrared heating panels. This premium product is designed to accommodate the needs of architects, mechanical and electrical engineering consultants and end users alike in driving down energy consumption and contributing to their net zero goals.  

“G3D are delighted to support Pilkington UK as the sole distributor of Pilkington HeatComfort Panels, and we’re excited to offer this exciting new range to our existing and future clients.”
