Dubai Imports NASA-Developed In’Flector Solar Deflectors for Greener Glass Buildings

Tall glass buildings have come to dominate the Dubai and Abu Dhabi skylines, which makes absolutely zero sense given that summer temperatures consistently burst their seams in the region.

But now the UAE has imported NASA-developed transparent panels that deflect heat back into the atmosphere.    

There are so many existing glass skyscrapers throughout the United Arab Emirates that it would be impossible to raze them all and replace them with “greener” buildings.


The glass sucks up solar heat that is then radiated heat indoors, forcing people inside to turn up their air-conditioning units. This in turn gobbles up energy and also releases unnecessary pollutants into the conditioned airstream.
