Solar Control - Pilkington

Solar Energy Solar Control Reduces solar heat gain and offers high levels of natural light to provide comfortable and pleasant environments in which to live and work.

Cutting costs and keeping cool: solar control solutions

A recent National Energy Foundation report, indicated that 8.7 per cent of the overall energy used in UK homes can be saved if energy-efficient glass is installed. With energy prices having outstripped inflation in recent years and rises set to continue, investment in better performing glass could pay itself off many times over throughout the 20-plus-year lifespan of a typical window.

Solar Control Glass - Pilkington

Solar control is a key issue in terms of energy saving: In hot conditions, or for buildings with high internal loads, it is used to minimise solar heat gain by rejecting solar... In more temperate conditions it can be used to balance solar control with high levels of natural light.

Pilkington Suncool™ Range

Solar radiation transmittance (g-value) ranging from 0.42 down to 0.17; External light reflections ranging from a low 10% up to 42%; Light transmittance performance ranging from 70% to 28% giving excellent light/heat ratios; Ideal for large areas of glazing to control solar gain whilst providing high light levels

Solar control glazing – the key to reducing CO2 emissions?

Not only does solar control glazing help to improve building performance by reducing reliance on air-conditioning systems while still keeping the internal space cool, it can also be given low-emissivity properties to help control internal temperatures all year round.
