SGG COOL-LITE® SKN 174II
SGG COOL-LITE SKN 174 II, the high performance curved temper able double silver coating, is a solar control glass with high light transmittance and excellent solar factor.
This coating has the highest light transmittance of the SGG COOL-LITE SKN range but also reduces solar heat transmittance by up to 59%. The high amount of light it lets through makes it the most neutral in appearance within the range.
The selectivity of the product allows architects and specifiers to utilize large areas of glazing and create bright, airy spaces while keeping the solar heat to manageable levels.

House windows - Day-light for House windows
The high transparent glass or larger sizes of the windows enable a better illumination of your home indoor space, which has a positive impact on your health: Several international scientific studies have shown the healthy effect of natural day-lighting on human-beings.
House windows - Energy Saving For House windows
Installing energy efficient windows with SGG's high performance Low-E or solar control glass can save your energy bills compared to traditional windows and frames.
Our own research has shown that many homeowners are unaware of the performance differences between different types of window glass, instead assuming that all double glazing is equally energy efficient. In reality, there are significant differences in performance with the type of glass used being key.
House windows - Solar Control for House windows
Solar control glass can be used to keep interiors more comfortable by preventing excessive heat buildup in sunny weather reducing the need for costly air conditioning or blinds.
How does it work?
Solar control glass has a microscopically thin coating on one side that reflects heat from the sun to the outside. This helps to prevent overheating in large areas of glazing. It can also reduce uncomfortable glare from direct sunlight.
