Many SunGuard low-E coatings are spectrally selective, which the U.S. Department of Energy defines as having a light-to-solar gain ratio of 1.25 or greater.
SunGuard’s low-E coatings can transmit substantial amounts of daylight while minimizing as much solar heat transmission as possible. Increased daylight means less artificial lighting is needed inside the building, reducing utility costs year-round and making the environment more pleasant for those working inside. Better solar control in summer reduces air-conditioning costs, while better heat thermal performance in winter reduces heating costs. In other words, SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass can help your project save a great deal of energy and money.
