THERMO-SUN™ - GP Medium Reflective Low E Laminated Safety Glass
Glass Partners are distributors of locally manufactured as well as imported medium reflective products. Glass Partners also have its own Thermo-SUN product range to offer a wide range of new generation performance coatings to meet market demands and the design of modern day architecture.
THERMO-SUN Laminated safety glass is manufactured from one sheet of float quality and one sheet medium solar control glass bonded together with one or more clear or tinted PVB interlayers (Polyvinyl Butyral). Our Solar control coatings reflect solar energy and minimize heat gain. The density of the reflective coating determines the performance of the product. All our solar products can now be used monolithically when the coating is installed on the inside surfaces of the window. Glass thicknesses are nominal.
Low E coated glass is incorporated to the inner surface of the glass, coating to be on surface four, which increases the thermal insulation of the glass assisting with energy efficiency legislation.
Colours- In addition to our THERMO-SUN Neutral laminated safety glass, THERMO-SUN Laminated Safety glass offers a variety of tinted medium reflective glass products. More than one colour vinyl can be added to give the glass a “Deep “tint. It is recommended that a thermal stress evaluation is done on laminated safety glass with a high heat absorption, prior to installation.
A White translucent PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral) interlayer can be added to any of the colours to provide obscurity to the glass.
The visco-elastic properties of the PVB interlayer provides a superior acoustic control compared to normal float glass.
ULTRA VIOLET CONTROL
The PVB interlayer reduces the transmission of damaging UV Rays to fabric or furniture.
A low e coated glass is incorporated to the inner surface of the glass, which increases the thermal insulation of the glass assisting with energy efficiency legislation. The coating must be on the surface of the glass facing the interior of the building.
Our PVB laminated safety glass is universally recommended for use in “hazardous” areas, where damage and subsequent injury may occur. It conforms to the SABS 1263 PART 1 national safety standards.
