Manufacturer's Product Description

Our superior tinted glasses provide significant improvements in solar performance compared to normal tinted glass. The colors are deeper, however natural views from the interior are maintained with low exterior reflectance. They are readily available and can be processed and fabricated similarly to normal float glass to provide an economical choice for reducing air-conditioning loads and costs.

Pilkington SuperGrey™ provides the best solar control of any uncoated float glass. The deep grey color provides privacy from the outside and reduced see through. The glass softens bright daylight and reduces glare with 9 percent light transmittance making it appropriate for use in skylights or near computer monitors.

The high performance tinted glass range absorbs a large proportion of solar radiation. Applications must be checked for thermal stress breakage. We recommend that Pilkington SuperGrey™ be specified and supplied as a heat strengthened or toughened glass when exposed anytime to direct sunlight.

Benefits

* High solar control float glass - without coatings optimizes light transmittance and reduces cooling loads.
* Low external and internal reflectance.
