Self-Cleaning Glass – Frequently Asked Questions
What is self-cleaning glass?
Blue Self-Cleaning, Solar Control Glass is an optifloat glass with a unique dual-action permanent coating. Once exposed to daylight, the coating breaks down organic dirt, allowing rain water to ‘sheet’ down the glass and wash dirt away.
Where can it be used?
On exterior applications – windows, conservatories and glass roofs.
Will my windows ever need cleaning?
We cannot say that your windows will never need cleaning – that depends on the amount of dirt and rain the glass receives. Blue Self-Cleaning, Solar Control Glass reduces the amount of maintenance required. If cleaning is necessary, it will be less frequent and much easier than with conventional glass.
Does it work on cloudy days or during the night?
Blue Self-Cleaning, Solar Control Glass needs only a small amount of UV radiation to activate the coating — so it is always working, even on overcast days and throughout the night.
