Solar control glazing

Solar control glazing

NEW > Cystar Suntuitive

Cystar Suntuitive dynamic glass is a type of glass that responds to heat. It uses heat from direct sunlight to gradually become darker whenever required. A dark tint of glass increases comfort by blocking more solar heat and light.

Since Cystar Suntuitive dynamic glass operates without electricity, and the change in colour takes place automatically due to solar heat rather than by sensors, it is the most economical, the simplest and most reliable and effective dynamic glass solution as compared to other dynamic window technologies.

Cystar 70S

This is the latest generation of the cheaper solar control and super-insulating (1.0 w/m²K) glazing with a soft coating at position 2 (outer pane on the cavity side). The cavity within this glass is filled with an argon gas mixture as standard, while allowing in optimal daylight (light transmission factor: 70%) and to provide good solar shading (39%). In addition, this glazing has a reflection (light reflection factor: 11%) which is not higher than classic double glazing, meaning that there is almost no reflection in the glass.

Application: Recommended in façades or windows where solar shading and insulation are important without giving the impression of being in a palace of mirrors. The glazing is lightly tinted, similar to classic double glazing.

This is the latest generation of solar control and super-insulating (1.0 w/m²K) glazing with a soft coating at position 2 (outer pane on the cavity side). The cavity within this glass is filled with an argon gas mixture as standard, while allowing in optimal daylight (light transmission factor: 50%/60%) and to provide very good solar shading (28%). In addition, this glazing has a reflection (light reflection factor: 12%) which is just a little higher than classic double glazing, and therefore, there is almost no reflection in the glass.

Application: Recommended in façades or windows where solar shading and insulation are important without giving the impression of being in a palace of mirrors. The glazing has a light, barely noticeable grey tint.

In addition, this glazing also offers higher reflection (light reflection factor: 15%), thereby resulting in a slightly higher reflection in the glass.

Application: Recommended for façades or windows where solar shading and insulation are important. Moreover, this type of glazing has a slightly stronger mirror effect. The glazing is silver tinted.
