How Self-Cleaning Glass Works

SGG BIOCLEAN Low Maintenance Self-Cleaning Coating

Self-cleaning glass

Spend more time relaxing and enjoying the view, rather than cleaning the windows!

A revolutionary self-cleaning coating is applied to our glass as part of the manufacturing process, meaning it is fused to the surface of the glass and therefore lasts the lifetime of the pane.



The SGG BIOCLEAN coating uses both rain and natural light from the sun to efficiently combat the dirt and grime that accumulates on the outside of the window. By significantly reducing the need for manual cleaning it provides the ideal solution for keeping those hard or dangerous to reach areas clean, leaving you with more time to relax and enjoy your conservatory.

 

How does it do that?

There are two processes at work in our self-cleaning glass.

Firstly, the special coating harnesses natural daylight, which triggers the breakdown of the dirt and grime on the outer surface of the glass.

Secondly, when rainwater hits the glass, rather than forming droplets it flattens and spreads out across the surface of the glass helping to wash away the loosened dirt and grime. This sheeting effect also minimises spots and streaks by helping the glass to dry more quickly and evenly.
