Building with glass

Saint-Gobain Glass and Glassolutions supply glass with various properties for windows and picture windows in homes, as well as for veranda and conservatory walls, glass roofs, light wells and entrance doors.

Solar Gard films have been designed to be applied on both the inside and outside of building glass to protect occupants from the effects of the sun's heat, glare and UV rays. They are a less costly solution for solar protection than air conditioning or blinds and awnings. Additionally, with its Armorcoat® range, Solar Gard provides security films for windows to protect occupants and property from injury in the event of breakage and to act as a barrier against breaking and entering.

MEGICA (sputtering targets) from Saint-Gobain Coating Solutions are used to produce thin film onto building glass for different functions.

Saint-Gobain SWISSPACER is the warm edge for insulating glass on energy saving window systems and high thermal insulation door and façade systems. SWISSPACER provides best thermal values, highest surface temperatures and perfect design for the edge of the windows. We provide CALUWIN, the energy saving program, to calculate a window's energy savings, quickly and easily. The Caluwin App is free to download on IOS and Android devices.
