Energy can be combined with other types of glass for At some stage in every home construction or renovation project, the question inevitably arises about what kind of glass to use: thermal insulation glazing or solar control .

Glaverbel's Energy glass combines both of these functions in a single product thanks to its invisible, precious-metal coating which prevents loss of heat in winter, while screening out heat in summer.The Energy balance in summer: hot outside, cool and light insideEnergy offers an excellent solar factor (39%), which means that it reflects 61% of the heat produced by the sun's rays to back to the outside world.This is a superb performance level when compared to a conventional low-emissivity glass, which rejects just 30 to 40% of solar radiation.

Another benefit: Energy features a superb light transmission rating of 71%, thereby encouraging the influx of light into the interior of the building. Its extremely low light reflection (12%) and neutral appearance make it an ideal choice for residential applications.

The Energy balance in winter: cold outside, warm inside
When used in double glazing, Energy also offers excellent insulation to protect against the winter cold. With an extremely low U-value of 1.1 (W/m².K)*, Energy leads to a significant reduction in losses of heat to the outside world.

Energy not only provides protection from summer heat waves, but also from harsh winters, by ensuring a higher level of comfort within the building. Energy generates significant energy savings, a bonus for the environment, because by reducing the consumption of heating and/or air conditioning, Energy reduces emissions of CO2.

additional benefits, such as acoustic insulation and security/safety features. It is ideal for residential use and in tertiary applications (hospitals, public services, hotels, businesses, etc.).
