Advanced Glazing Technologies for Glass

Enjoy maximum control, comfort and efficiency.

Advanced glazing allows you to harness all the positive benefits of natural daylight without suffering the undesirable effects such as excessive heat gain, glare and fading.

Types of Glazing

  • Electrochromic Glass

    An electronically tintable glass that can be switched from clear to a dark tint at the click of a button or programmed to respond to changing sunlight and heat conditions. Energy consumption and costs are greatly reduced. Electrochromic glass offers significant advantages over conventionally glazed products because they provide the highest possible solar control without sacrificing the view through the glass.

  • Photovoltaic Glass

    Skylights are an ideal application for photovoltaic glass (PV). They are normally well-exposed to the sunlight, allowing for optimal energy yield. PV skylights also improve thermal inner comfort since most of the UV and infrared radiation are filtered out by the Silicon-based material. Semitransparent PV glass reduces the need for artificial lighting, generates power, and provides thermal and sound insulation.

  • Translucent Insulated Glass

    Used in architectural daylighting to provide the highest quality of diffused daylight, it converts harsh direct beams of sunlight into soft, diffuse daylight while allowing you to design your desired light level without excessive heat gain, glare or fading. Filling these with aerogel improves energy efficiency and reduces sound transmission.

  • Triple-Glazed Glass

    Solarban 60 Solar Control Low-E Glass by PPG is engineered to control solar heat gain, which is essential to minimizing cooling costs. This triple-glazed configuration with warm-edge technology is an economical alternative to our other energy-efficient advanced glazings.

  • Multiwall Polycarbonate

    High-performance, lightweight panels maintain high clarity and provide an outstanding balance of impact strength and stiffness, thermal insulation, UV protection, flame and condensation control, and long-term high-light transmission. Panels filled with Lumira aerogel offer the superior thermal performance of a typical insulated glass skylight, full spectrum diffused daylight, complete moisture resistance and reduced sound transmission.
