SolarVue

SolarVue™ provides medium solar control and a neutral, low reflective appearance in a range of colours. A thin deposit of nickel and chromium eliminates more than 55% of solar heat, while transmitting more than 45% of visible light. SolarVue™ also eliminates more than 99% of damaging UV radiation.

Suggested applications

• Medium solar energy control
• Glare reduction in buildings
• Glazed partitions and screens

Standards and options

SolarVue™ is a PVB laminated safety glass marked to SABS 1263-1. SolarVue™ can be custom-manufactured to meet various safety, security and noise reduction standards and colour.

Coating densities

• High Light (HL)
• Extra High Light (XHL)
• Super High Light (SHL)
• Mega High Light (MHL)
• Ultra High Light (UHL)

Edge working

The edges of all heat absorbing glass should be polished to reduce the possibility of thermal breakage. The edges must be free of damage such as vents and chips.

Environmental influences

The visual appearance of coated glass is determined not only by the colour of the glass and the coating. It is also influenced by environmental factors such as the solar angle, ambient light level and quality, reflections in the glass, and the viewing angle. The nature of coated glass makes it imperative to assess the true colour and reflectance of the proposed product in the context of an existing building, failing which in a full-scale mockup, before a final selection is made.

Coating : Glazing Guide

SolarVue™ is a sided product, meaning that its appearance will vary when viewed from different sides. Care must be exercised when cutting and glazing to ensure a uniform appearance. Stock sheets are labelled by the factory to indicate the coated side.
SolarVue™ neutral is best installed with the coating towards the sun. Tinted SolarVue™ products are normally glazed with the tinted side facing the sun. If optimum light and solar control are required, the coated side should be placed outside.

LAMINATED PRODUCT RANGE

COLORVUE

ColourVue™ laminated glass products are made from various combinations of clear and tinted glasses and PVB interlayer. ColourVue™ is available in a wide range of colours to meet a variety of aesthetic, glare reduction and solar control demands. Coloured and patterned interlayers can be used individually or in various combinations to create colourful and distinctive glass facades, partitions and interiors.

SOLARVUE

SolarVue™ provides medium solar control and a neutral, low reflective appearance in a range of colours. A thin deposit of nickel and chromium eliminates more than 55% of solar heat, while transmitting more than 45% of visible light. SolarVue™ also eliminates more than 99% of damaging UV radiation.

SOLARSHIELD

SolarShield® makes it possible to create attractive buildings with highly efficient solar control. The combination of a metallic coating and a clear or tinted PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayer is designed primarily to keep out as much of the sun’s heat as possible. In addition to reducing solar heat, SolarShield® also limits the amount of light entering the interior and blocks up to 99% of damaging UV radiation.

COOLVUE

CoolVue® glass meets the growing demand for natural day lighting and building transparency, without the heat gain associated with ordinary clear glass. CoolVue® can transmit more than 70% of visible light while blocking more than 50% of solar heat.

E-RANGE

E Range™ coated monolithic glass offers superior thermal insulation in standard frames designed for single glazing. E Range™ products reduce heating and air-conditioning costs by keeping more heat in during winter and blocking it out during summer.

ACOUSTIC GLASS

Acoustic laminated safety glass is manufactured with a special vinyl interlayer that offers better sound control than traditional polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers. The sound control rating of glass is expressed as a weighted sound reduction index (Rw) measured in decibels (dB).
