The Raiffeisen Bank which is headquartered at Warsaw in Poland has made extensive use of Saint-Gobain’s Antelio Plus, a solar control glass with low internal and external reflection. The reflective glass provides summer comfort during the summer periods and thermal comfort during winters.

SGG Antelio Plus  is manufactured by a process of on-line coating. As a solar control glass, it blocks the incoming heat radiation from the sun, while allowing in natural light.

Antelio can be heat treated (toughened/tempered/heat strengthened) and combined with other glass products from the Saint-Gobain Glass range to offer different functionalists. It can also be ceramic fritted, laminated & bent. For the Bank, SGG Antelio Silver was used in double glazing for the facades. The silver tinge adds a sophisticated style to the entire building facade clothed in shimmering glass.

Capitalizing on SGG Antelio’s visual and functional benefits, the Raiffeisen Bank has done well to bank on this solar control glass.
