COOL-LITE® XTREME is Triple Low-E glass with the triple silver layered solar control coatings. COOL-LITE® XTREME is the ideal product for energy savings by reducing overheating in the summer and heat loss in the winter. COOL-LITE® XTREME improves thermal insulation and maximizes brighter interiors and natural lighting with high light transmission while retaining an extremely neutral appearance.
COO-LITE® SK is a high functional and high efficient glass with the double Ag layered coatings. COOL-LITE® SK provides a spectrally selective solar control performance along with excellent thermal insulation. With higher transmission levels and more transparency, COOL-LITE® SK maximizes brighter interiors and natural lighting.
COOL-LITE® K is high functional glass and has advantages of both Low-E glass and reflecting glass. COOL-LITE® K reduces energy consumption and has a neutral appearance with low light reflectance when produced on a clear substrate. COOL-LITE® K is ideally suited for use in facades.
PLANITHERM® maximizes thermal insulation by applying advanced Ag coating technology. PLANITHERM® uses a special coating to reflect radiated heat back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the windows. PLANITHERM® is energy saving glass which is at least 25% more efficient than most double glazed windows.
