New climate control glass comes to UK

Post Time:Oct 04,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:54

A new type of glass with tiny layers of steel embedded in it can slash energy bills in buildings, it is claimed.

The Solarlux microsolar glass has been launched in the UK by German company Glas Wagener.

The glass has micro lamella layers of transparent steel that let sunlight in when it is needed but keeps heat out in the hot summer months. The layers of steel in the glass are positioned so they reflect sun infiltration from high angles but allow sunlight from low angles to pass through the glass relatively unimpeded.

Dave Wyatt, head of the Glas Wagener’s UK operations, said: “Solarlux microsolar helps to regulate interior temperatures by preventing overheating from the sun in hotter summer months and enabling sun light from low angles the sun to enter a building when it is cold, thus there is less need for air conditioning or central heating.”
