NSG launches online tools


The NSG Group has launched a range of online tools, aimed at helping customers and specifiers choose the right glass to meet their needs.

The interactive colour swatch tool enables users to see how different Pilkington glass ranges would appear installed as a building’s façade, by showing a mocked-up cityscape with various different building types.

Pilkington spectrum is a glass performance model enabling users to calculate the key properties of Insulating Glass Units (IGUs) online. It can provide information on light and solar properties (transmittance, reflectance, absorptance, g value), Ug-values, sound insulation, ultra violet (UV) transmittance and colour rendering. It can also model other properties such as pendulum body impact resistance, manual attack resistance and fire resistance. The tool can model single glazing as well as double, triple and quadruple glazed IGUs.

Faye Barrow, Digital Communications Manager for NSG Group Building Products, explained: “Interactive online tools have huge potential to transform the way glass is specified. We are committed to creating new tools to help our customers and specifiers to visualise their projects, and to make it easier to find the perfect glass product for any application.”
