Gowercroft appointed Pilkington Spacia dealer

31 May 2019

Timber window and door specialist Gowercroft Joinery has been appointed as an official dealer for Pilkington Spacia double-glazing units across the UK.

The Derbyshire-based company has extensive experience working with these revolutionary vacuum insulated glass units (VIGs), which combine the thickness of single glazing (6.2mm) with the thermal performance (U-values as low as 0.9W/m2.K) and acoustic benefits equal to standard modern double-glazing – typically 28mm thick.

The dealership agreement represents the formalisation of a relationship, which has developed over the past four years, as Pilkington UK Ltd and Gowercroft Joinery have worked together to develop opportunities for Pilkington Spacia within the heritage and listed property market.

Gowercroft is the first specialist manufacturer to have designed an entire range of heritage windows and doors using Pilkington Spacia combining traditional joinery and craftsmanship with highly innovative design features and products, such as Accoya timber and a unique Sirca paint finish. These products are guaranteed to deliver exceptional performance and zero maintenance for 10 years.

“Having had mounting concerns about the performance and longevity of low sight-line slim double-glazing in heritage properties, we were delighted to find Pilkington Spacia,” said Andrew Madge, managing director of Gowercroft Joinery.

“It is the only product on the market which offers the traditional aesthetic, exceptional performance and also an excellent track-record as a reliable product – being in continuous use for well over 20 years. It truly offers owners of historic and traditional styled properties the best of all worlds.”
