Breaking boundaries
The UK’s first offline glass coating line has reached an historic landmark this month.
The 80-metre-long magnetron coater at Saint-Gobain Glass’ manufacturing site at Eggborough has produced 100m sq m of coated glass; the vast majority of which is energy efficient SGG Planitherm Total+, destined for the UK door and window market.
The glass coater became operational in 2004 and now produces up to 10 million sq m of glass each year. The coater produces 10 different coated glass products including solar control, self-cleaning and thermally
  efficient glass for commercial and residential buildings. Ian Blatherwick, manufacturing manager process, says: “This is a fantastic achievement and demonstrates the production expertise that we’ve built up over the past 14 years. The coater has been constantly maintained and upgraded as we’ve innovated and developed new high- performance coatings to meet the changing demands of the market. We now produce some of the highest performing glasses in the UK today ranging from 3mm to 12mm in thickness and sizes from 2.25m x 3.2m to 6m x
3.2m.” ❐
