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 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

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 ...
