Solar Control Solar control is a key issue in terms of energy The correct choice of glass can help to reduce saving. In hot conditions or for buildings with the capital outlay, running costs and associated high internal loads, solar control glass is used carbon emissions of a building throughout to minimise solar heat gain by rejecting solar radiation and help control glare. In more temperate conditions it can be used to balance Given the variety of building designs and solar control with high levels of natural light. climatic conditions and the different levels of exposure to solar...

How it works – Glass controls solar heat Further parameters given to glass are radiation from the sun by reflectance, transmittance and absorptance. For solar control purposes these are defined in terms of the Light transmittance – the proportion of the following parameters: light that is transmitted by the glass Reflectance – the proportion of solar radiation Light reflectance – the proportion of the light reflected back into the atmosphere that is reflected by the glass Direct Transmittance – the proportion of Total Shading coefficient – the ratio solar radiation transmitted directly...

Introduction to the Pilkington Solar Control range There are two basic processes for coating glass known as “on-line coating” (such as Pilkington Eclipse Advantage™) and “off-line coating” (such as Pilkington Suncool™). On-line coatings are applied during manufacture of the glass whilst it is still hot, whereas off-line coatings are applied after the glass has been processed. Off-line coatings are generally able to give higher levels of selectivity, thermal insulation and light transmittance than on-line coatings but they require extra care in handling and processing. Both on-line and...

Plymouth University, Plymouth – Pilkington Suncool™ 50/25 Pilkington Activ™ Range Pilkington Activ™ is the world’s first self-cleaning glass. Its unique dual-action coating uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass clear of organic dirt, giving you not only the practical benefit of less cleaning, but also clearer, betterlooking windows. It works in two ways: first it uses daylight to break down organic dirt (such as bird droppings) and then it uses rain to wash any loosened dirt away. Pilkington Activ™ also dries off faster leaving the glass cleaner and with reduced streaks, which...
