Self-Cleaning Glass

When it comes to household chores, the self-cleaning oven is a blessing! And thankfully, defrosting the fridge is a thing of the past. The reality is that, as a homeowner, you have less time to invest in maintaining and cleaning your home, and even if you did, would it be worth the sacrifice of your quality time? Self-cleaning glass is another window innovation that has evolved with convenience in mind.

Self-Cleaning Glass

Clean windows, one rainstorm at a time.

It almost seems too good to be true: Just sit back and let the sun’s rays loosen the dirt on your windows, which then washes away in the rain without a trace. So let’s focus on how the technology works.

With a special layer of titanic anhydride, self-cleaning glass reacts with the sun to create a chemical reaction that breaks down organic deposits on the glass. As 80% of the sun’s UV rays penetrate cloud cover, this process works even in cloudy weather. Loosened dirt rinses away easily, leaving your glass clean, which also prevents dirt build-up.

Self-cleaning glass is also combined with energy-efficient LowE, so the decision to have self-cleaning windows isn’t a trade-off for lower energy performance.

does it last?

The coating is designed and tested to last, and will not flake or discolour; however, it is important that the exterior surface isn’t damaged with harsh, abrasive cleaners or blades that would scratch the glass.
