Low-E Glass Coatings - Solarban and Sungate
Low-E Glass Blending Natural Views with Solar Efficiency Glass is one of the most popular and versatile building materials used today, and it provides a dramatic aesthetic. But the beauty of glass is pointless if the people inside the building are uncomfortable or if energy inefficiency makes the building too expensive to operate. Low-emissivity (low-e) glass coatings were developed to minimize the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that can pass through glass without compromising the amount of visible light that is transmitted. A microscopically thin transparent coating allows low-e glass to reflect exterior heat in warm temperatures and hold in heat during cold temperatures, making buildings light, bright and energy-efficient.
