Building Science Insight
Description:Studies have shown that over a ten year period, the energy savings from high performance coated glass can be considerable and for a typical six story building, the payback can be as little as two years. The SunGuard product range is one of the results of that investment providing a wide range of performance characteristics to satisfy the requirements of European Building Regulations and Standards. SunGuard products are among the highest performing, most energy-efficient coatings available today. Theoretically speaking, an "ideal" solar control glazing would transmit the sun's visible energy light and reflect, or block, the ultraviolet and infrared energy, while providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance from both the exterior and interior of the building.
