COOL-LITE SKN 174 balances the advantages of a high performance and very neutral solar control product with:
- a high light transmission a very low g-value, which reduces solar gain by as much as 30% compared to standard thermally insulating glass
- an excellent U-value of 1.1W/m2K
- a high degree of neutrality both in transmission and exterior reflection.
COOL-LITE SKN 174 can be used to create more comfortable interiors by reducing overheating and the need for costly air conditioning, whilst at the same time noticeably reducing excessive heat loss.
The technical performance and aesthetics of COOL-LITE SKN 174 (annealed) and COOL-LITE SKN 174 II (to be toughened/heat-strengthened) are identical. COOL-LITE SKN 174 II can be toughened from stock enabling a quick turnaround for toughened/ heat-strengthened double-glazed units. Together, these two coatings can be used to produce exciting and innovative projects within a short timescale. There is the additional advantage, therefore, of a short lead time for replacements.
