The main condition for window frames can grant thermal transmittance and solar control set by the new Act is the adoption of selective glazing with low emissivity and solar control coatings.Pilkington Suncool™ is a range of magnetron selective glass that optimally meets the requirements of the new legislation, allowing to limit solar heat gain inside the building in any situation, and environmental exposure, is located.
Pilkington Suncool™ 70/35 is the most performing of the range as for light transmission level as for solar factor and it reaches a Ug value of 1.0 W / m2K.

Installed in face # 2 in a traditional double glazing, you get a solar factor of 37%, given enough to agree the requirements of the Decree, and to consider the global transmission factor of solar energy ggl + sh.Whether this glass in triple glazing is installed together with a low-emissivity glass (face # 5) Pilkington Optitherm™ range, the solar factor drops to 34%, or simple double glazing but with Pilkington K Glass™ N face # 4 you get a solar factor of 35% and Ug 0,9 W/m2K.
