LoĒ-366’s pioneering triple layer of silver actually far outperforms tinted low-e insulated glass units, achieving a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient of only 0.27 compared to 0.67.

The multi-million dollar expansion of Eastland Shopping Centre completed late 2016 year has taken this already expanded urban shopping centre to the next level as a destination to not only shop but also eat, drink and meet.

The project was embarked upon with the vision of transforming Eastland into one of Melbourne’s most progressive and exciting urban shopping, entertainment and leisure destinations.

In addition to the revamped retail experience, a new town square lined with signature restaurants, contemporary al fresco dining and a generous public space was incorporated into the project.

Embracing this new outdoor landscape and marrying the indoor and outdoor environment required an extensive use of glass and Probuild (tier 1 builders) opted for Glassworks’ LoĒ-366 ® low-emissivity (low-e) glass for a number restaurants exposed to direct sunlight at certain times of the day.

Because LoĒ-366 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility, it was the perfect choice for restaurants such as Mexican street food eatery Paco Taco, cafe Brioche and steak restaurant Hunter and Barrel.

Historically, tinted glass would have seemed the only solution for an almost all glass front exposed to direct sunlight, although this would not have spoiled the view from inside and compromised visibility from outside.

LoĒ-366’s pioneering triple layer of silver actually far outperforms tinted low-e insulated glass units (IGU), achieving a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of only 0.27 compared to 0.67.

On the aesthetic side, it was also chosen for its low reflectivity, producing an exterior reflectance of just 11% compared with 17% of a regular low-e IGU, as well as the ability to stay clean naturally thanks to the added Neat® easy-clean coating which harnesses the sun’s rays to lift the dirt so the rain can wash it away.

The best aspect of LoĒÑ-366 is that its sun blocking ability means less reliance on air conditioning during the approaching summer months for enhanced occupant comfort and energy savings.
