Heat Mirror Insulating Glass
Glazing for windows and facades have experienced enormous innovations in terms of thermal insulation over the course of the past four decades. From double glazing, through to triple glazing and solar controlled glass.
Heat Mirror Glass is the latest and most efficient solution of all. In this product, the space between the panes of a double-glazed unit is separated by an additional film. It is therefore a three layer system with two independent air spaces, and has the advantage of weighing the same as a double glazing unit.
The suspended film is transparent to visible light, and at the same time it reflects remote infra-red radiation and harmful Ultra Violent radiation. Put simply, Heat Mirror reflects radiation back to the source; towards the outside in the summer, when you want the room to stay cool, and towards the inside in winter when you want the room to remain warm.
Heat Mirror insulating glass has been used around the world in structures ranging from single family homes to high profile projects for over 500 companies. This highly innovative technology has been recognised worldwide for its oustanding contributions to the environment though the highest level of sustainable design.
Coated Heat Mirror films are often used in conjunction with low-e glass, taking advantage of the benefits of both film-based coatings and glass based technologies. Inert gases, such as argon or krypton, are added to create Heat Mirror insulating glass units with industry leading performance. Outstanding winter insulation and superior solar control provide year-round savings and enhanced comfort.
