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 ...

Solar control glass is a hi-tech product developed by the glass industry to allow sunlight to pass through a window or façade while radiating and reflecting away a large degree of the sun’s heat. The indoor space stays bright and much cooler than would be the case if normal glass were used.

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.

Turning down the heat with solar control glazing - Pilkington

How It Works. Glass manages solar heat radiation by three mechanisms: reflectance, transmittance and absorptance. Reflectance – the proportion of solar radiation reflected back into the atmosphere. Direct transmittance – the proportion of solar radiation transmitted directly through the glass.

Solar Control - Barriers to the Sun Intensive research over several decades has equipped the float process with ingenious ways of controlling solar energy for greater comfort and economy. Ingredients can readily be added to the melter to control the wavelength and percentage of radiation transmitted or absorbed by the finished product.

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 ...
