In the United States alone, more than 40% of all buildings were built before 1990 and are comprised of un-insulated single-pane windows. Billions of square feet of windows are responsible for over 25% of all energy waste in the built environment. Even so, many windows do not get replaced due to the high capital cost and modest ROI, leaving window tint or blinds as the best alternatives. Until now.
Our thermal nano-coatings are ideal for single-pane glass and polycarbonate surfaces. These coatings block up to 100% of Ultraviolet (UV) rays and 98% of Infrared (IR) heat while maintaining up to 96% Visible Light Transmission (depending on the product selected). That’s a huge improvement over conventional plastic films that darken rooms.
Even better, our “paint on” coatings do not peel, crack, bubble or fade over time. They can be applied to bent glass, historic building windows, skylights and even textured glass surfaces enabling energy savings where it was previously impossible. By mitigating both radiant and conductive heat, your upgraded windows and skylights will make your buildings more efficient and comfortable year round. All while allowing in free natural daylight.
