The increased use of glass in architecture today makes it imperative to consider the comfort of a building's occupants. Solar control glass can be an attractive feature of a building whilst at the same time minimising, or even eliminating the need for an air conditioning system, reducing running costs of the building and saving energy.
In hot climates, solar control glass can be used to minimise solar heat gain and help control glare. In temperate regions, it can be used to balance solar control with high levels of natural light.
Solar control glass can be specified for any situation where excessive solar heat gain is likely to be an issue, e.g. large façades, glass walkways, atria and conservatories.
All products are available in toughened or laminated form for safety and security requirements and can be combined with other benefits such as noise control.
