Pilkington's online tool to speed up specification

Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, has launched a new performance search function to help architects, specifiers and customers build specifications tailored to their project requirements.

Spec-it!, which incorporated in the popular Pilkington Spectrum calculator and hosted on the company’s website, aims to speed up the glass specification process and help those across the supply chain build up a specification, even if they are not familiar with the Pilkington product range.
 
Users can use search parameters including U value, g value, light transmittance and both external and internal light reflectance, to help find Pilkington products that most closely match their project requirements.
 
The tool also allows users to filter the results by selecting a benefit category, such as noise control, safety & security or solar control, making it quicker and easier for users to determine the most appropriate product for their needs.
 
Once a match has been found, Spec-it! then loads the results in the main area of Spectrum, from where users can view the full performance data.

Phil Brown, European regulatory marketing manager at Pilkington (pictured), commented:

“The ability to access information remotely at any time of the day is becoming a real requirement for many customers, so we're pleased to launch Spec-it!, and offer customers an advanced, online technical service.

"The service will make it quicker and easier for users to find and select the products they need, regardless of their level of glass product knowledge.”
