High performance solar control
The coating of windows or the complete building envelope with solar glass film allows the sun's energy to enter the building and when incorporated into insulating units, significantly reduces heat loss. The effect of the coating is to reflect the long wavelength energy (generated by heating systems, lighting and building occupants) back into the building. However, the transparent coating still permits the transmission of short wavelength energy originating from the sun. Solar control glazing means solar energy is absorbed by the internal surfaces of the building and re-radiated at the longer wavelengths, which are then reflected, by the coating, back into the building.
