Solar control

Solar control low-emissivity glass provides an excellent balance between the amount of penetrating sunlight (TL) and the amount of solar heat entering the home (Te).

The cavity side (#2) of the glass surface on the outside is covered with a selective metal coating to accommodate the surplus heat from the sun.

It is strongly recommended that this type of glass is applied to south-facing façades using large expanses of glass.

Advantages:
  • restricts heat from the sun
  • limits the use of air conditioning
  • great savings on energy costs
  • benefits the environment due to reduced CO2emissions
  • optimum use of daylight
  • many aesthetic possibilities.
