At Euroview Architectural Glass, we are dedicated to providing high-performance glazing solutions that enhance the functionality and aesthetics of educational facilities. We were delighted to partner with Drayton Windows on their project for Southfields School in Kettering, where our advanced low emissivity (Low-E) glass played a pivotal role in the construction of the new Sixth Form block.


Project Requirements:

The Southfields School project required glazing solutions that would meet the highest standards of performance and functionality. The new Sixth Form block includes:

  • 10 classrooms
  • Offices
  • A 240-seat lecture theatre
  • A bespoke café
  • A glazed undercroft providing a multi-functional learning and social area for students


Solution Provided:

We supplied Drayton Windows with Guardian ClimaGuard A1.0 for this ambitious project. Guardian ClimaGuard A1.0 is an advanced thermal insulating glass designed for double and triple glazed insulating units. It was the perfect choice for this project due to its exceptional properties:

  • Transparency: The glass provides high levels of transparency, ensuring an abundance of natural light in the learning and social areas.
  • Solar Heat Gain: This new Low-E glass maintains superior thermal performance while allowing increased levels of solar heat gain, optimizing energy efficiency and comfort within the building.



Drayton Windows expertly installed the Guardian ClimaGuard A1.0 glass throughout the new Sixth Form block. The implementation included large glazed areas in the classrooms, offices, lecture theatre, café, and the multi-functional glazed undercroft. This installation not only met the project’s aesthetic requirements but also ensured that the building’s energy efficiency and comfort were maximized.



The use of Guardian ClimaGuard A1.0 resulted in a state-of-the-art Sixth Form block at Southfields School that offers a modern, comfortable, and energy-efficient environment for both students and staff. Key benefits include:

  • Enhanced Comfort: Improved indoor comfort with optimal temperature regulation and natural lighting.
  • Energy Savings: Increased energy efficiency due to the superior thermal insulating properties and solar heat gain management of the glass.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: A contemporary and visually appealing design that enhances the overall learning experience.



Euroview Architectural Glass is proud to have contributed to the success of the Southfields School Sixth Form block project. Our commitment to providing high-quality, innovative glazing solutions has helped create a sustainable and comfortable educational environment. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Drayton Windows and supporting future projects with our expertise and superior glass products.
