Solar control

Modern architecture today is characterised by spaciousness and transparency. Ever larger glass elements for the outer building envelope appear to merge the exterior with the interior. This is reflected worldwide in office and administration buildings of the last two decades, but also in private housing that includes atriums, gables and winter garden glazing using increasingly large glass components. This style of construction only became feasible with the advent of solar protection glass. These types of glass reduce the greenhouse effect that occurs primarily in the summer months due to the rooms heating up to the point at which they become unpleasant to be in.
