Solux-E

Low-E Coating

Finding the right glass is simple

Your glazing plays a crucial role in the way your home feels and functions so we've made finding the right glass as simple as it should be. We've created a cutting-edge low emissivity glass called Solux-E. Solux-E reduces the amount of heat that passes through the glass while still letting natural light though, improving the thermal efficiency of a home.

It offers year-round comfort and a warmer, drier and healthier home. Solux-E with The AGP System is the all-in-one option to help you get the most out of your glazing.

 

What is Solux-E™

Solux-E is a low emissivity (Low-E) coating on the glass, which is virtually invisible. It is incorporated into a double-glazed unit, improving the level of insulation in the home. Solux-E is applied to the inside surface of the exterior glass pane, protecting it from the elements.

We developed this state-of-the-art product using the latest global technology, optimised for New Zealand conditions.

Blocking excessive heat

Solux-E lets the sun’s visible light pass through but reflects the ‘sun's heat’ back out again. With less heat entering the home, there’s less need for air-conditioning to keep it cool.

Retaining heat

Solux-E reflects the warm air in the home back into the house rather than escaping through the glass. This reduces winter heat loss by 58%* when compared to standard double glazing.

*Based on 4mm Solux-E / 16mm ATS / 4mm compared to 4mm / 16mm Air / 4mm.

Filtering UV light

Solux-E helps protect furnishings in the home from fading by reducing the amount of UV light that enters through the glass.

Year-round comfort

Year-round comfort

Solux-E works to minimise heat flow. You’ll stay warmer through winter with less warm air escaping and reduce over-heating in the summer with less heat entering through the glass without the need to use tinted glass in the double-glazed unit. Solux-E helps to retain heat in the home up to 35% better* than other comparable Low-E products available in New Zealand, achieving a more stable home temperature and year-round comfort.

*Solux-E in a unit comprising of 4mm Solux-E/16mm ATS with argon gas/4mm clear float has a U-value (CoG) of 1.1 (EN 673)

Smaller energy bills

Smaller energy bills

A more constant temperature means less energy used to heat and cool the home, providing energy savings year-round. Reduced energy consumption puts less demand on New Zealand’s power grid, reducing the environmental footprint.

Reduced fading

Reduced fading

Solux-E minimises the amount of UV light coming through the glass up to 15% better** than other comparable Low-E products in New Zealand, reducing fading in soft furnishings and fabrics.

** Tdw-ISO damage weighted UV transmission is 0.60 for a Solux-E unit comprising of 4mm Solux-E/16mm ATS with argon gas/4mm clear float.

Clear view

Clear view

Solux-E provides excellent light transfer and clarity, keeping the view crystal clear and the rooms in the home light and bright.

Better performance

Better performance

Solux-E outperforms comparable existing Low-E products and creates a more thermally efficient home, resulting in ongoing savings.

Healthier home

Healthier home

Solux-E reduces the likelihood of condensation forming on the glass inside the home, reducing the risk of mould growth, and increasing the homeowner’s overall health and wellbeing.
