Architects and specifiers facing the challenge of delivering thermally superior windows without compromising natural light transmission or causing summertime overheating have a new solution from GLASSOLUTIONS Solaglas in SGG COOL-LITE® XTREME.
This extremely high selectivity solar control glass utilises the UKs first triple-silver coating technology to outperform other glazing systems where a neutral appearance must be matched by excellent heat reflectivity. The popular 6mm thickness COOL-LITE XTREME is stocked by GLASSOLUTIONS Solaglas and manufactured into sealed units to provide a ready-made solution in all types of newbuild or refurb projects.
Kathryn Dalgleish, marketing manager at GLASSOLUTIONS Solaglas said: COOL-LITE XTREME is a superb product with the best ratio of light transmission to solar control on the market, making it ideal to deliver naturally-lit, highly-insulated buildings. The coating works to cut the risk of overheating in summer and prevent heat loss from inside the building during winter all without impacting on the amount of natural light which can enter the building or aesthetic goals.
By specifying advanced solar control glass like COOL-LITE XTREME, the windows and façade become a key component in the building fabric, withstanding changing climatic conditions to mitigate the need for costly air-conditioning and heating systems and reducing whole-life CO2 emissions.
One of the first projects to benefit is a refurbishment project in St Pauls Churchyard, adjacent to the main entrance of St Pauls Cathedral, which is a five-storey mixed use development of retail, office, hotel and residential accommodation. GLASSOLUTIONS manufactured and supplied SGG COOL-LITE XTREME sealed units totalling 300m2 for the hotel and 600m2 for the rest of the building.
