What is Solar Control Glass?

Solar control glass is a type of glass designed to reduce the amount of heat that enters a building, thus enhancing thermal insulation and comfort and reducing the need for artificial cooling.

Solar glass is created through various coatings and treatments applied to the glass surface, which can reflect or absorb some of the solar radiation.

Solar control glass represents a significant advancement in architectural and commercial glazing, offering a range of benefits that contribute to energy efficiency, comfort, and aesthetic appeal.

As the world continues to battle climate change and the rising cost of energy, innovative solutions like solar control glass are becoming increasingly popular options for business owners.

Reflective Solar Control Glass

This type of glass has a reflective coating that reduces a significant portion of the solar radiation. It is often used in commercial buildings where a large external glass panel would be common.

Absorptive Solar Control Glass

This glass absorbs solar energy, which is then dissipated as heat. Absorptive glass is typically tinted and can be used in both residential and commercial applications.

Low E Glass

Low E glass has thin solar control coatings that reflect infrared energy while allowing visible light to pass through. This type of glass is highly effective in reducing solar gain without compromising on natural light.

Dual-Function Glass

This combines solar control performance with other functionalities, such as thermal insulation or sound reduction.

Energy Efficiency

One of the most significant advantages of solar control glass is its ability to reduce energy consumption. By minimising the amount of solar heat entering a building, solar control glass reduces the need for air conditioning.

Therefore, switching to a solar control glass unit not only contributes to your energy saving but also reduces your carbon footprint.

Enhanced Comfort

Solar glazing is an insulated glass unit, and therefore helps to maintain a more consistent indoor temperature by reducing heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter.

This results in a more comfortable working environment for you and your employees.

Glare Reduction

By controlling the amount of sunlight that enters a building, solar control glass can significantly reduce glare, making indoor spaces more pleasant and reducing eye strain.
