Comfort and Energy Efficiency

  • Appearance matters and must be balanced with performance! The SOLARLUX A-Series offers a choice of four high-performance, solar-reflective and low-emissivity glass products that can be paired in one building without compromising a color-matched glass façade. This concept enables the architect and façade planner to respond to the requirements of each orientation and level of a building while maintaining a uniform appearance (while one glass type is efficient for the south and east orientations of the building, a different glass type might be more ideal for the north and west orientations).

    But by using different glass products in one building, the requirements for all orientations can be met, and natural day lighting can be increased where necessary. The A-Series ensures a balanced indoor climate – both in summer and in winter. It saves on AC units or alternatively, on heating, and thus contributes to protecting the environment.

  • It is the infrared portion of solar radiation that is primarily responsible for heating up rooms behind glazed surfaces. The visible light that provides brightness has scarcely any influence.

    SOLARLUX is able to differentiate between these two types of radiation. Thanks to its innovative coating it lets a high proportion of the visible light pass through, while largely reflecting the infrared radiation. This coating property is designated “highly selective”. This supports the room climate and makes optimum use of daylight.

    With different technical properties such as varying values in light transmission the four SOLARLUX A-Types A70, A60, A50 and A40 meet the respective requirements for all orientations of a building. At the same time, the four coatings are color-coordinated in such a way that they can be paired in one building without compromising a color-matched façade.
