Saint-Gobain Glass has recently introduced its SGG COOL-LITE XTREME 70/33 II to the commercial market. Designed to provide thermally efficient light transmission and solar control, the product has been developed for glass processing companies and specifiers.
The SGG COOL-LITE XTREME 70/33 II offers a high light transmission of 70%, whilst boasting a low Solar Factor of 0.33.
This blocks almost 70% of solar heat gain and ensures the introduction of natural light into any open space.
The triple silver coated system features a selectivity of 2.12 and a center pane U-value of 1.0W/m2k, allowing it to offer increased energy efficiency. This can reduce the requirement of air conditioning, resulting in a decrease in overall energy consumption and CO2 emissions for a project.
The solar control coating is neutral and low reflective, ensuring a reduction in the amount of external shading devices that need to be used.
