It is now possible to significantly reduce solar heat gain and improve comfort while providing clear views and daylight. In warm regions, this means that high-performance windows can face into the sun if desired without great energy penalties – although shading echniques remain important.
ClimaGuard™ is comprised of eleven optical tuned layers, providing optimal climate control, neutral aesthetics and plenty of natural light. These coatings consist of multiple layers of metals whose combined thickness is only 1/1000th the thickness of a human hair!
ClimaGuard™ with low-solar-gain (spectrally selective) coatings can provide better solar heat gain reduction than tinted glass, with a minimal loss of visible light.
This also means that views can be clearer and unobstructed.
High-performance windows create warmer interior glass surfaces, reducing frost and condensation. Energy efficient windows with warm edge technology and insulating frames have such a warm interior surface that condensation on any interior surfaces is significantly reduced under all conditions.
