Solar Control - Pilkington

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/solar-control

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 ...

Solar control glass is not necessarily coloured or mirrored glass, although such finishes can be applied for aesthetic purposes if desired. It incorporates invisible layers of special materials on the glass which have the dual effect of allowing sunlight in, while repelling solar heat. Solar control glass units are typically doubleglazed, which means they also insulate well. Solar control is a ...

Specifying solar control glazing to improve energy efficiency

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/news-insights/featured-articles/specifying-solar-control-glazing-to-improve-energy-efficiency-not-published

A solar solution. Solar control glazing, as its name suggests, helps to minimise temperature build-up in buildings due to sunlight. When specifying solar control glazing, the most important parameter to consider is the total solar heat transmittance or g value. It includes the proportion of solar radiation transmitted directly through the glass ...

Noise Control Glazing. 17 Dec 2014 No matter what the source is – railways, airports or busy roads – we’re constantly surrounded by invasive noise pollution. Unfortunately, future trend research predicts that noise levels are only going to worsen as the volume of traffic and transport increases. This is where the careful and considered selection of appropriate glazing comes into play ...
