Saint-Gobain Glass at AVC, Belgium - Via Saint Gobain Glass India Flickr PhotostreamFor more than two decades, the AVC brand has been renowned for its world-class stairs, doors and walls.Hence, it was imperative that the showroom lived up to its image of a top-notch solutions provider. The architect, Devolder Architecten BVBA, relied extensively on the use of glass facades for commercial exteriors. SGG COOL-LITE EXTREME 60/28 from Saint-Gobain was ideally suited to be the exterior glass.

SGG COOL-LITE is an advanced energy-efficient solar control glass. An exterior glass, it is manufactured to meet the most exacting standards in order to deliver high performance with ease in processing. SGG COOL-LITE is highly preferred for use in glass facades for commercial exteriors because of its ability to cut excess heat and optimize light transmission.

At the AVC, SGG COOL-LITE’s heat reflective nature helped to keep the interiors of the building cooler during daytime, thereby reducing the cost of air-conditioning. By allowing natural daylight into the showroom and decreasing glare, it not only enhanced the look and feel of the products showcased inside, but also reduced the need for artificial lighting.

Glass facades for commercial exteriors can be instrumental in elevating the aesthetics of a building, while imparting critical benefits in terms of energy-efficiency. SGG COOL-LITE, the high-performance solar control glass from Saint-Gobain, thus played a key role in unlocking energy-efficient double glazing solutions for the AVC at Belgium.
