Solar control glass

Environmental protection and energy efficiency meet comfort and aesthetics

Glass façades now have to put up a tremendous performance: In summer, they are expected to ensure that not too much heat enters the interior of the building, yet there is sufficient daylight to illuminate the rooms. In winter, however, the additional demand made on glass is high thermal insulation, so that it remains comfortably warm inside the building. Our solar control glass fulfils all these expectations and much more.

arcon® solar control glass in different variants

We offer solar control glass in around 60 different variants. Which of these is the right one for your construction project or building depends on various factors as well as your personal design preferences. Our glasses can be easily combined with other functional glasses from arcon® - such as sound insulation or alarm glass. An overview of our extensive range of solar control glass is provided below.

Our solar control glass at a glance:

Besides our glass range which are further processed as insulating glass, you can also find monolithic solar control glasses. They can be directly installed in the façade without any additional processing. They include the following products:

Do you have a specific idea about what you want your glass façade to look like? Or would you like to go beyond standard products and realize your personal preferences? In addition to our most popular solar control glasses, we offer other project-specific product variants. So we can guarantee that we will find the right variant of our products for each of your requirements. We offer you the option of incorporating your own ideas and preferences with regard to performance and visual appeal in a project-specific consultation and execution. Here, you can also choose from a variety of project coatings that have already been successfully implemented. Schedule a consultation with us today!

sunbelt® A – Three solar control variants with visual harmony

Function & properties:

With our sunbelt® A series, you no longer have to choose between need-based solar protection and visual harmony within a building. The requirements for total solar energy transmittance (g-Value) and light transmittance (Lt) are defined by the architect based on the building physics measurements. The three solar control layers A51, A61 and A71 can then be used as required on the different orientations of a building. The uniformity of the colours of the different coatings preserves the visual harmony of the building and reduces the energy requirements of the building. In addition, the increased light transmission on the sides facing away from the sun further contributes to the increased comfort of the building users and occupants. These solar control glasses also stand out for their neutral transmission colour in low external and internal reflection. Further, they are available in the variants of float glass, tempered safety glass and heat strengthened glass and can also be curved or bent.

Applications:

Façades and windows, roof and winter garden glazing, noise reduction glazing, structural glazing

Glass Type:

Multi-pane insulating glass (double glazing, triple glazing) manufactured using the following components: Laminated safety glass*, tempered safety glass, heat-strengthened glass, float glass*

sunbelt® D – One product, Two solutions

Function & properties:

sunbelt® makes many things easier: You can use the same base glass as non-tempered float glass or as tempered safety glass/heat strengthened glass. Due to our innovative layer design, the change in colouration caused by the thermal treatment is barely visible. This allows the combined use of float or tempered safety glass in a building. sunbelt® D40, D50, D60 and D70 have outstanding optics due to their brilliant, neutral blue-grey external reflection and low angle-dependence.

Applications:

Façades and windows, roof glazing, winter garden glazing, noise reduction glazing, structural glazing

Glass Type:

Multi-pane insulating glass (double glazing, triple glazing) manufactured using the following components: Laminated safety glass*, tempered safety glass, heat-strengthened glass, float glass*

sunbelt® E71 – Efficient solar control for your façade

Function & properties:

sunbelt® E71 is the further development of our long-standing and proven product sunbelt® platin. By optimizing the technical parameters, sunbelt® E71 has now achieved a Ug-value of 1.0 W/(m²K) and a g-value of 39%. Thus, it provides effective sun protection in summer and thermal insulation in winter. In addition, the reflection colour has been adapted. The low light reflection also ensures perfect transparency. sunbelt® E71 provides you with an extremely neutral, low-reflection solar control glass. The economic advantages remain unchanged as with its predecessor product. .

Applications:

Façades and windows, roof glazing, winter garden glazing, noise reduction glazing

Glass Type:

Multi-pane insulating glass (double glazing, triple glazing) manufactured using the following components: Laminated safety glass*, tempered safety glass, heat-strengthened glass, float glass*

sunlite A – Selective solar control as monolithic glazing

Function & properties:

With sunlite A, you enjoy the benefits of both: a laminated safety glass and an effective solar control coating. sunlite A is a highly transparent, effective laminated safety glass

solar control glass for monolithic applications. In the classic application – the curtain wall façade with thermal insulation glazing behind it – sunlite A achieves previously unattained values in selectivity. Since no de-lamination of the edges is required, sunlite A stands out for its uniform appearance. 

Applications:

Curtain wall façade, glass louvres, spandrel glass, winter garden glazing or windbreak glazing

Glass Type:

Monolithic laminated safety glass consisting of tempered glass or combined in multi-pane insulating glass (double glazing, triple glazing) 

sunlite bright – Reflective shine for demanding façades

sunlite bright stands out for its silvery reflection and high light transmission. The neutral transmission colour perfectly enhances the excellent photometric properties. This glass opens up new possibilities for applications that could previously only be achieved with pyrolitic coatings (so-called hard coatings). Visually, the glass lends a special charm to any building thanks to its high colour rendering index in transparency and reflection. It can be laminated and bent into laminated safety glass and can be customized by combining with printing or enamelling. The glass can optionally be turned into tempered safety glass or heat strengthened glass or bent as float glass or tempered safety glass. In addition, processing into laminated safety glass (also with layer for film) as well as pre-stressing to tempered safety glass or heat strengthened safety glass is possible without any problems. sunlite bright can also be pre-stressed as float glass or tempered safety glass. 

Applications:

Curtain wall façade, glass louvres, spandrel glass, winter garden glazing or windbreak glazing

Glass Type:

Monolithic laminated safety glass consisting of toughened glass or float glass

sunlite grey – reflective shine as monolithic laminated safety glass with a greyish appearance

Function & properties:

With similar properties as sunlite bright, sunlite grey has a neutral grey reflection as well as transmission and has impressive optical properties. It can also be used as non-tempered float glass or as tempered safety glass or heat strengthened glass. sunlite grey can be laminated and bent into laminated safety glass.

Applications:

Curtain wall façade, glass louvres, spandrel glass, winter garden glazing or windbreak glazing

Glass Type:

Monolithic glass Float/thermally toughened safety glass/heat strengthened glass or also laminated safety glass or combined into multi-pane insulating glass (double glazing, triple glazing)
