Reflective Glass For Building Design
Reflective glass is a type of solar control glass which is energy efficient. It is widely used in green building and modern architecture because of its energy saving and aesthetic properties. It is manufactured by advanced online pyrolytic coating technology, wherein silicon based coating is applied to the glass surface by means of pyrolysis. This coating imparts a “mirror-like” appearance to the glass, giving it visual appeal while providing functional benefits like solar control and glare reduction.
Modern architecture has come a long way in using glass as a prime component for green buildings. Glass is becoming THE material for construction, and more so, for green buildings. Green building ratings are being given a serious thought, right from the time of designing a building.
Green Buildings and reflective glass
Reflective solar control glass reflects a large proportion of incoming solar radiation, thereby restricting heat penetration into the building. It reflects the right quantity of sunlight so as to limit glare, while allowing adequate amount of natural light. Thus, the need for artificial lights as well as air conditioners is significantly reduced.
Doubly glazed reflective glass is very frequently used in high rise buildings. This glass can be tempered and combined with other glass products to prevent heat loss, cut out noise or stay clean by itself.
