Reducing Solar Heat Gain with Laminated Glass

When architects and construction companies set out to build energy-efficient buildings, their choice of windows is one of the most important decisions they can make. When builders skimp on glass, it can cost companies thousands of dollars in added energy costs each year. That’s why we use insulating glass to control heat loss in our exterior window designs. But what if you could have windows that were not only thermally efficient, but also capable of minimizing solar heat gain?

XIR Solar Control Film for Laminated Glass

Bent Glass Design fabricates laminated glass made with XIR Solar Control Film for a variety of architectural and transportation applications.  The beauty of this transparent film is that it meets the needs of engineers and architects trying to produce glass that controls solar heat gain while still maintaining maximum light transmission. Laminates that incorporate the XIR solar control film help to deflect unwanted solar heat from the sun while allowing greater than 70% visible light transmittance.

The result of the process is controlled areas of the spectrum that reflect, absorb, and transmit types of electromagnetic radiation. This is beneficial for the customer because they’re getting the most out of their laminated glass product. This product can be used in skylights and facades, automobiles, and boats.
