Cardinal Glass Rolls Out NEAT Glass Technology
This new glass uses two different types of coatings that do two things:
- Silicon dioxide makes Neat® glass exceptionally smooth. In fact, it’s much smoother than ordinary glass. So water disperses evenly, “sheets off” and evaporates quickly, greatly reducing water spotting.
- Titanium dioxide reacts chemically with the sun’s UV rays, causing organic materials that are on the glass to decompose. It works even on cloudy days, as 80 percent of UV radiation gets through cloud cover. Then when it rains, the decomposed dirt is rinsed away, leaving the glass almost spotless. Result? Homeowners can spend less time washing windows and more time enjoying the view.
When Neat® is applied to LowE glass, it combines the ultimate in low maintenance with the best energy-conserving LowE glass on the planet. So homes stay warmer in winter, cooler in summer. Neat® LowE conserves energy year-round, too, saving homeowners up to 25 percent annually.
Reduces unwanted outside noise by up to 25% more than a standard double pane glass, and up to 50% more than a plastic skylight.
VELUX recommends and building codes require laminated glass for out of reach applications.
Standard On All Velux Skylights.
All skylights (excludes roof windows) from Velux Skylights will come standard with this product and all custom skylights provided by Skylight Specialists, Inc. will also be offered the option for this technology.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, this is very cool technology which will eventually be used in all glass in the future. A cleaner brighter world! We can all use that.
