SolarFlect Glass is constructed by a high-tech process called MSVD in which individual atoms of different metals are deposited on the glass substrate while in a vacuum chamber. The different layers each serve a purpose, and much of the process is patent protected.
SolarFlect Glass refers to the three layers of Silver, the active ingredients of the coating that actually reflect heat energy. Traditional Low E coatings have 1, or sometimes 2, layers of Silver. Solar Flect Glass is unique in utilizing a third layer of silver, which multiplies the impact of the first two.
SolarFlect Glass requires 4 Anti-Reflective Dielectric layers, composed of Zinc and Tin. The first layer bonds to the glass. All 4 Anti-Reflective layers eliminate distortion and encapsulate each Silver layer, protecting the silver from oxidation, just as more expensive silver jewelry has a coating to prevent tarnishing.
On top of each layer of Silver is an added patented Barrier and Hardener layer to provide additional protection to the Silver layer it covers. On top of the entire stack of layers is the patented Titanium Protective Overcoat. Because each layer is built by depositing individual atoms onto the glass, the 11 layers of SolarFlect Glass are microscopically thin.
SolarFlect Glass is the state of the art in heat reflective technologies. Through creative use of technology, all 11 layers of individual atoms are fine-tuned together to provide maximum heat reflection, maximum Ultra Violet reflection, while allowing a maximum amount of visible light to pass through, and doing all of this without causing distortion or color tint.
Cooler In The Summer
The total solar energy transmitted through SolarFlect reflective glass is almost 73% less that that transmitted by standard clear insulating glass.
- Lower SHGC numbers mean less summer heat
- Helps reduce cooling energy cost
Argon gas, one of the "noble gases," is used in better grades of thermal-pane windows. Argon offers decided advantages that increase house-heating and cooling efficiency, thus lowering heating and cooling costs. Dead air space in a thermal unit slows down the conduction of heat and cold as well as making the glass more sound proof. Argon gas further reduces the conduction of heat and cold far better than dead air alone. In addition to that, Argon reduces outside noise better than dead air as well.
Transmits Visible Light
The SolarFlect reflective glass transmits about 80% as much desirable visible light as standard clear insulating glass.
- Provides exterior appearance similar to clear glass
- Provides glare control in bright, sunny climates
Reduces Ultraviolet Energy
SolarFlect reflective glass reduces fabric-fading UV energy 90% more effectively than standard clear insulating glass.
- Helps protect interior furnishings, fabrics and carpets from fading
Warmer In The Winter
The winter nighttime R-Value (insulating value) of SolarFlect reflective glass is as much as 92% better than standard clear insulating glass.
- Higher R-values mean higher performance
- Reduces furnace heat loss
- Helps reduce heating energy
- Lifetime Warranty On Glass Seal
- Lifetime Accidental Glass Breakage Warranty
