The very best in offline coated solar control and low-emissivity products.
Pilkington Suncool™ works by controlling solar gains without significantly reducing internal light levels; designed to achieve optimum performance in large glazed areas. The range combines high light transmittance; low, medium or high light reflectance and outstanding thermal insulation properties, resulting from an extremely low-emissivity coating.
The high selectivity index (light-to-heat ratio) of Pilkington Suncool™, combined with the highest level of thermal insulation reduces the need for cooling and heating systems in your building, lowering running costs and helping to make your building ‘green’.
The range manages comfort and costs all year round, with the solar control glass minimising solar heat gain; rejecting solar radiation and controlling glare in hot conditions. Equally, in more temperate conditions, Pilkington Suncool™ works to balance solar control with high levels of natural light.
Studies undertaken for Glass for Europe show that between 15 and 18 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, could be saved by the optimal use of solar control glass. Pilkington Suncool™ satisfies green building certifications such as LEED and BREEAM in helping to meet this objective, alongside our own energy conservation and generation initiatives.
Pilkington Suncool™ is to be used exclusively in Insulating Glass Units. Designed to achieve optimum performance in large glazed areas, Pilkington Suncool™ products are suitable for commercial and residential applications that demand high light transmission properties.
The high selectivity index (light-to-heat ratio) combined with outstanding thermal insulation make the range ideally suited for large areas of glazing, where the need is to control solar gains without significantly reducing the internal light levels. Where a safety glass is required, Pilkington Suncool™ can be specified as toughened or laminated glass. Toughened or heat strengthened glass should also be specified in applications where Pilkington Suncool™ may be at risk of thermal breakage.
