Solar Control The last decade has seen significant improvements in the design and application of solar control glazings in vehicles. The major drivers are passenger comfort, minimising the degrading effects of the sun's radiation on interior trims and fabrics, and improving fuel consumption by lowering the load on the vehicle's air-conditioning unit.

Air conditioning has to control the solar load on the building as well as all the heat generated internally. By reducing the solar gain with solar control glass the air conditioning plant can be smaller and cheaper to run. The savings more than offset the additional cost of solar control glass.

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 radiation and help control glare, in more temperate conditions it can be used to balance solar control with high levels of natural light.

Turning down the heat with solar control glazing - Pilkington

Further still, solar control glass incorporates near-invisible coatings on the glass which have the dual effect of allowing daylight in, while rejecting solar heat. A product that achieves this is the latest addition to the Pilkington Suncool™ range, Pilkington Suncool™ 71/39, which is an off-line coated high-performance solar control glass ...

Absorptance – the proportion of solar radiation absorbed by the glass. In hot conditions or for building with high internal loads, solar control glass is used to minimise solar heat gain. It allows sunlight to pass through a window or façade while radiating and reflecting away a large degree of the sun's heat.

Solar control Reducing heat from the sun. Having too much heat or light enter through the window during the warmer months can present as much of a problem as trying to keep heat in during the colder ones. Anyone who has installed a conservatory on a South facing wall will testify to the high temperatures they have to endure. Fortunately you do ...
