Glow heated glass is the latest innovative technology to take the glazing industry by storm. It is a specialist glazing that has a conductive coating which generates heat when an electrical current passes through it. This pioneering product can be used as a sole heating source for heating a room, or as an additional heating source for places where extra heating is required e.g., extensions and conservatories etc.
The temperature of Glow heated glass like other primary heating sources is thermostatically controlled. This helps maintain a consistent temperature by turning the glass on and off as needed. This can reduce energy consumption and wastage and lead to lower utility bills.
The average hourly cost is around 9p per Bifold door. Therefore, as an example a 3 door Bifold configuration running for 5 hours per day will cost around £1.35 based on an electricity cost of 25p/kWh.
Glow heated glass has been designed specifically to emit radiant heat rather than convection heat as used in traditional radiators. Radiant heating solutions have many benefits as it heats people and objects unlike convection that heats space. As an example, radiant heat is what makes sunshine feel warm on your skin.
These DGU’s are glazed in a similar fashion to conventional DGU’s. We recommend the electrical work is carried out by a qualified electrician with the product conveniently designed to connect direct to your 240v home mains supply making installations easier and hassle-free. We also provide a comprehensive installation guide with each order.
Glow heated glass comprises of a sealed unit that is layered with intelligent invisible conductive coatings which is electrically heated to convert electric power into radiant heat.
Glow is incorporated into aluminium bi-folding door systems which include enhanced security multi-point locking mechanism, and child-friendly gaskets which prevent fingers from being trapped, keeping the people in the home safe.
Glow Heated Glass can be used as a sole heating source for heating a room, or as an additional heating source for places where extra heating is required e.g., extensions and conservatories etc.
The average hourly cost is around 9p per Bifold door, which makes this an efficient alternative to traditional heating methods.

Yes, it dramatically reduces condensation. It also requires no ongoing maintenance, making it a hassle-free heating solution compared to similar systems.
Yes, it can replace traditional radiators, offering an alternative and potentially more efficient heating source.
The technology has been designed to emit radiant heat rather than convection heat, so it warms up people and objects rather than just heating an empty space.
Traditional radiators and gas boilers have been recognised as inefficient and not environmentally friendly by the Government as part of their 2025 Future Homes Standard initiative. In its current format gas boilers and therefore radiators will be banned in new build houses by 2025. Glow Heated Glass with its many benefits will conform to this new legislation.
The electrically heated glass units are thermostatically controlled creating ambient temperatures which are perfect for installation in Bi-folding doors reaching glass surface temperatures of 35-40°C. For the first time, a realistic alternative to radiators, electric fires or underfloor heating systems is available either as the main or an additional source of heating for the home
Available in a range of opening configurations and colours which can fold inside or out, to suit any household.

Premier Frames work exclusively with market leaders Ultraframe to fabricate and supply conservatory components for installers.
Over 2 million Ultraframe products have been installed nationwide, making it the most popular conservatory frame in the UK. They are known for offering homeowners superior levels of thermal efficiency and home security. The installation process is also incredibly straightforward for you as the installer. Our products come ready assembled and have simple two or three step fittings.
We have a great relationship with Ultraframe, having recently chosen to work exclusively with them rather than using multiple suppliers.
By having such a good relationship, we can ensure that the products we supply are consistently of a high standard. All of these conservatory and extension components are manufactured here in the UK, which allows us to have a better control over what we’re supplying to our network of installers. As a result, we’re able to provide those installers with market leading conservatory and orangery roof systems.
We take pride in delivering a friendly, personal service to all the installers we work with. We’re able to offer help and support whenever required.
As the installer, you’ll have two options with receiving your Ultraframe products. You’ll be able to choose between collecting from our showroom or having the components delivered. We’re located in North East Leicester, near the A47. If you’re looking to have the products delivered, it typically takes around ten working days. Our friendly team will handle the delivery or collection professionally.
Based in the East Midlands, we have customers spread across the middle of England. We’re continually looking to expand our catchment area.
