Solar control double glazing - 4 season glass combination of thermal insulation and solar protection
Advantages of solar control double glazing
Four Seasons glass is cozy warm in winter and cool in summer. In this way, this solar glazing U comfort in all seasons. Less heat and therefore less heating costs, even with large window surfaces. Modern comfort, so no cold area at the window, the radiators are not necessarily under the window and still reduce condensation inside to a minimum. Environmentally friendly living with lower emissions of CO. Four Seasons glass is ideal for south facing facades with large glass surfaces and vertical portions of porches.
What is solar control double glazing
Thanks to recent technological advances, very special coatings can be applied to clear glass. These are processed in four seasons glass that is able to allow the light to a large extent, and to keep at the same time. the major part of the solar radiation. Four Seasons glass combines these qualities with excellent thermal insulation and is a glass type for all seasons. In Four Seasons glass is a sun control coating applied at the cavity side of the outside glass sheet.
Low solar heat transmittance
The extent to which solar radiation can penetrate through the glass, is specified using the solar factor SF. A low SF-value results in a reduced heating of the inner space as a result of solar radiation. The result is a more pleasant indoor climate, and also a reduced need for refrigeration. A low-value SF also leads to energy savings. This is particularly important for utility construction but also in residential construction is consideration growing. By the choice of glass for example, a veranda plays the sun protection also an important role so that this space both seasons winter and summer an affective and enjoyable expansion of the house.
Due to the spectral selectivity (filtering action) the coating can be tinted double glazing a low SF-value combined with a relatively high daylighting. Solar control double glazing eliminates dark glass facades. There have almost no concessions to be made to the daylight. A transparent facade gives the users of a building optimum contact with the outside world and color neutrality of the light is not violated. Daylighting is specified using the LTA value which indicates how much visible light entering through the glass.
Four Seasons glass also has excellent thermal insulation properties with U-values in the class of standard HR ++.
