Glaverbel recently became the first company to launch a soft-coated glass on the European market that reduces solar energy levels entering buildings in the summer and also reduces heat loss in winter.

This type of glass - appropriately named Energy - offers several benefits: high levels of light transmission, thermal comfort in both winter and summer, and lower heating, air-conditioning and electricity costs. These are all important considerations for sustainable construction.

Keen to further extend our range of solar control and thermal insulation glasses, Glaverbel is now launching an extremely neutral glass: Energy N and its toughenable counterpart Energy NT .

Energy N is a clear glass to which a low-emissivity coating is applied by means of magnetron sputtering; it is only used in double glazing. Energy NT glass, which has a toughenable coating, is similar to Energy N in terms of light transmission, light reflection and thermal insulation.

The fact that Energy NT can be toughened makes processing much simpler. In contrast with other low-emissivity solutions currently on the market, Energy NT can be toughened after the low-e coating has been applied. By being able to withstand the toughening process, Energy NT glass is not only an ideal solution for processors but also for designers, façade designers and architects who will now be able to combine toughened and non-toughened glasses on the same façade using a single type of glass.
