Solar Control Options
The increase in the 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.
Solar control glass has an incredibly thin coating on one side that reflects heat from the sun to the outside which helps to prevent uncomfortably hot spaces. It can also help reduce glare from direct sunlight. 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.
