What is SunX™ Grey - Low E Double Glazing?

SunX™ Grey is the latest in solar control technology, that helps eliminates the discomfort of overheated interiors.

Combining three key advantages into a double glazed unit:

  1. Uses solar control technology which helps reduce heat build-up during summer, plus protects from glare and sun damage.
  2. Provides excellent thermal insulation in winter using Low-E technology.
  3. Incorporates the latest in colour trends, with a subtle grey tint that enhances the overall aesthetic of any home or building.

This new technology also means that specialist glass can be added into the double glazing, such as obscure glass, frosted bathroom glass or sound control glass without the expense of triple glazing.

What is solar control?

SunX™ Grey has a special solar control coating which prevents excess heat from building up inside during summer months. It’s ideal for windows and facades exposed to a lot of sunshine. In colder months it retains warmth, while still letting in natural light, making it the perfect choice for all seasons, plus helping to reduce your heating and cooling costs.
