Viridian Launches SmartGlass Range
Viridian, Australia's leading glass manufacturer, is excited to
launch Viridian SmartGlass, an affordable range of four residential
single glazed energy efficient glass options, selected specifically
for Australia's demanding climate.
Viridian SmartGlass is so called for its smart 'Low E' active
insulation technology - a microscopically thin yet durable coating
that is fused to the glass whilst it is red hot during glass making
- improving a home's energy efficiency rating by up to a
whole 'Star' in some cases.
SmartGlass offers excellent insulation performance, up to 39%
better than ordinary glass, combined with a choice of four solar
protection levels ideal for residential applications across a broad
range of climate zones and home orientations.
This means the homeowner will enjoy a more comfortable home
while reducing the need to artificially heat and cool the home -
allowing them to save on energy bills all year round.
Being a monolithic single-glazed product, SmartGlass can be
readily substituted for ordinary glass, making it a very simple
solution for builders, specifiers and consumers to improve their
Viridian General Manager of Marketing Lachlan Austin confirms
that, SmartGlass will enhance Viridian's comprehensive range of
single and double glazed products by providing an entry level
product in the category of energy efficient glazing, helping to
make advanced glazing more accessible to Australian builders,
renovators and homeowners.
"Primarily targeted at residential volume builders, SmartGlass
provides a straight forward way to make good glass choices in
different climate zones and to achieve higher energy ratings
without sacrificing natural light and aspect," says Lachlan.
"A leading national builder has already selected SmartGlass for
the simplicity with which it was able to increase the star rating
of their homes and other discussions to date suggest this will be
the first of many.
"Home buyers are wanting to know more about their window and
glass options as they are increasingly becoming aware of the
difference windows make to the comfort, energy efficiency and
general appeal and livability of their homes while builders are
looking for ways to respond to this trend.
"Prior to SmartGlass, energy efficient glazing wasn't being
considered by the big building companies as it was seen as
'unaffordable' for first and second home buyer," continued Lachlan.
"SmartGlass addresses this 'affordability' claim head on and lets
builders and home-buyers experience the value of better
Viridian SmartGlass range comes in a range of tones, Clear,
Neutral, Green and Grey, which offer increasing levels of solar
protection from the sun's heat and greater glare control.
