Thanks to its superior thermal insulating performance, SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL+ enables a wider range of frame types and designs
to meet mandatory maximum and/or area weighted average whole window U-value requirements, affording greater flexibility to
architects, specifiers and fabricators.
A revolutionary high performance thermally insulating (low-E) glass
PLANITHERM TOTAL+ is a revolutionary high performance thermally insulating (low-E) glass that has been optimized to help windows achieve the highest Window Energy Ratings (WERs).
The PLANITHERM range of products consists of:
- PLANITHERM TOTAL+ – ideal for North facing elevations to capture the most of the sun’s heat
- PLANITHERM ONE – Ideal for south facing elevations or large bi-fold doors
- PLANITHERM 4S – Ideal for conservatories
- PLANITHERM ULTRA N – Ideal for commercial buildings
PLANITHERM TOTAL+ is an extremely versatile low-E solution suitable for a wide range of applications:
- Windows and skylights
- Patio doors, bi-fold doors, French doors and other external doors
- Conservatories and sun rooms
Enables manufacturers to offer customers a more cost-effective sealed unit for them to achieve the best window performances. For example, an ‘A’ Window Energy Rating can now be achieved in most PVC-U frames without the need for low-iron glass.
The PLANITHERM TOTAL+ coating is highly durable and easy to process helping to ensure the highest levels of quality of finished units.
A British-made product with full range availability from national, regional and local Glass solutions branch & customers, in a range of sizes and supported by nationwide availability of toughened product.
More satisfied customers given the neutrality and clarity of the glass – you can hardly tell it is a low-E glass, even when used with Georgian bars, decorative glass or white net curtains.

|Low-Emissivity Coating Position||Face 3||Face 3/5|
|U-value in W/m2K** Air||1.4||0.8|
PLANITHERM TOTAL+ meets the durability requirementsof class C of European standards EN 1096 and is CE marked.
* Light and solar performance according to EN 410
** Centre-pane U-values have been rounded in accordance with EN 673
For Window Energy Ratings simulators should calculate whole window U-values from first principles using normal surface emissivity (e = 0.05)
Handling & Processing
SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL+ must always be assembled into a double or triple glazed unit. The coating is generally placed on face 3 (and 5) of the unit, though it is possible to place the coating on face 2 without affecting the U-value. Appearance may vary slightly, so it is important to maintain consistent coating positioning throughout a particular façade.
