Low-E Glass ATTOCH™—Ideal for Energy-saving Renovations—Receives “Energy Conservation Center, Japan Chairman’s Award” of the FY2013 Energy Conservation Grand Prize

AGC (Asahi Glass Co., Ltd.; Head Office: Tokyo; President & CEO: Kazuhiko Ishimura) announces that its Low-E glass ATTOCH™, which is ideal for energy-saving renovations of buildings, etc., received the “Energy Conservation Center, Japan Chairman’s Award” at the presentation of the FY2013 Energy Conservation Grand Prize (Organized by: The Energy Conservation Center, Japan; Category: Product and Business Model).  Applying Low-E glass ATTOCH to the inside of an existing window converts the windowpane into a Low-E double-glazing glass with high-performance heat insulation and heat-shielding features.ATTOCH can be installed inside a room, so no scaffolding is needed.

Besides, installation is easy and takes only a short time. Unlike a heat shield film whose energy-saving effects are high only in summer, ATTOCH provides high energy-saving effects both in summer and winter, which were highly evaluated and led to the product receiving the award.

Features of ATTOCH:

・ ATTOCH provides measures both against heat in summer and cold air in winter, thus achieving enhanced energy-saving performance throughout the year. Once installed, the product helps to reduce air-conditioning energy use by about 33% (30% in summer and 34% in winter), cutting air-conditioning costs by about 570,000 yen a year.*1

・ No scaffolding is needed, resulting in lower installation costs.

・ Installation takes only 30 to 60 minutes per window.

・ Unlike a heat shield film, periodic replacement is not needed.

・ The existing glass continues to be used, so its disposal is not required.

Since its launch in October 2012, ATTOCH has been applied to windows of office buildings and hotels, as well as at showrooms, providing users with comfortable spaces.

AGC will continue to deliver solutions for environmental and energy issues, and achieve comfortable lifestyles and spaces, by providing products that offer both energy-saving efficiency and comfort.
