New to the marketplace, Solaris Glass claims to be at the forefront of glass technology, offering superior thermal benefits as well as an extensive option list for installers.
Perhaps the most impressive benefit of Solaris Glass is that it can achieve 80% heat reflection*, with a U-Value of just 1.0! Making Solaris the best performing glass on the market today!
The Solaris range of conservatory roof glass features, as standard, self-clean technology. Whilst many types of roof glass simply use an ‘easy clean’ coating, Solaris Glass has the self cleaning technology built in. The many benefits of which include increased longevity (compared to standard coatings which can wear off over time, and are costly to replace).
Over the years, several approaches have been made to fight the build up of dirt on roofs, facades
and windows. Self-cleaning coatings are improving constantly. Currently, there are two main categories
of self-clean coatings: hydrophobic and hydrophilic.
These coatings repel water and dirt and prevent water drops from drying on the glass pane and from
leaving ugly water marks and stains. The problem with this type of coating is that most
hydrophobic coatings do not give enough hydrophobicity (contact angle with water > 15 degrees)
for the self-cleaning effect to work.
These coatings are often referred to as easy-clean.
The literal meaning of this is ‘attracting water’, and is the opposite of ‘hydrophobic’ (water-repellent).
Basically, it means water spreads evenly over the surface of the glass to form a thin film that washes
away and dries off quickly without leaving ‘drying spots’. Hydrophilic – water attracting –
coatings can be photocatalytically active
and break-up organic dirt, which can be washed away by the water-sheeting effect on hydrophilic surfaces.
Hydrophilic coatings are mechanically much more stable, and some would say, much more effective.
Solaris Glass uses hydrophilic self clean technology, as standard.
Take a look at the technical specification, which includes the many options available:
|Heat Reflection||Solar Factor||U-Value||Light Transmission||True Self Clean||Warmedge||Argon Glass Filled
Popularity of Solaris Glass is rising fast, and with demand on the increase, it is imperative that anyone interested in the product, act now. Full marketing support is available, with retail brochures included.
