Self Cleaning Glass

SELF CLEANING ROOF GLASS
Ideal in areas which are inaccessible for example roofs, self cleaning glass works in a two stage process. Firstly the coating reacts with daylight to break down organic dirt. Secondly, rainwater spreads evenly over the surface of the glass, rather than forming droplets, and runs off in a sheet, taking the dirt with it and drying without leaving streaks.

 

Solar Control Glas

SOLAR CONTROL GLASS
Solar control glass is a high tech type of glass developed to allow sunlight to pass through whist an invisible layer in this type of glass will radiate and reflect away a large degree of the sun's heat, allowing the indoor space to stay bright and cool. This type of glass is used in conservatories or large building facades.
