Optical and Thermal properties
The multifunctional properties of PV glass surpass those of conventional glass. Our Solar photovoltaic glass can be customized to optimize its performance under different climatic conditions. The solar factor, also known as “g-value” or SHGC, is key to achieve thermal comfort in any building. Our ThinFilm glass displays a solar factor that ranges from 10% to 40%, and makes it an ideal candidate to achieve control over the interior temperature.
Our photovoltaic glass also offers a wide range of U-Values, according to the architectural spec. We just follow the design intention and design the glass to meet these specifications. Accordingly, we offer single laminated, double and triple glazing, Air and Argon chambers, and other configurations.
Low-E photovoltaic glass configurations are nearly endless however, in the following table, we show you our most popular configurations for crystalline and amorphous silicon technologies, along with their optical and thermal performance, their visible light transmission and their power.
