Viridian launches PerformaTech E for superior light transmission
Viridian PerformaTech E is the latest product offering from Viridian, and is set to compliment their existing energy efficiency range of solutions for the commercial building sector.
The performance requirements set by the likes of the BCA, NABERS and the Green Building Council outline strict protocols to reduce solar heat loads, though current market offerings struggle to achieve these requirements while also achieving high visible light transmission.
Viridian PerformaTech E, which is sold as a double glazed unit, launches with an exceptional balance of high light transmission, very low levels of solar heat gain, low reflectivity and extraordinary levels of thermal insulation to easily meet performance regulations and prospective owner or tenant demands.
With a measurable and direct link between performance glazing,construction and HVAC cost savings and also ongoing energy savings, Viridian PeformaTech E affords developers, architects, designers and engineers alike the opportunity to create economically viable, aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sustainable buildings that also significantly contribute to Green Star points.
Performatech E reduces both the heat and air conditioning loads of a building, while also providing excellent levels of natural light and connectivity to the outside world, the performance characteristics actively contribute to the provision of a perfectly balanced living and working environment.
“We are enormously proud of Viridian PerformaTech E with a performance that has the capacity to significantly reduce heat gain through the glass and achieve U values that exceed standard triple glazing, which is remarkable considering the product remains almost completely clear,” said Wade Bosse, Viridian Glass Commercial Channel Manager for Aus & NZ.
“This is a major development for the industry and I’ve no doubt that there will be a strong market for this product that is stocked and processed locally for short lead times for application on anything from offices and overhead glazing to large glazed facades and high rise apartments.
“This is one more step for Viridian to re-affirm our position as Australia’s leading and largest producer of high performance glass,” said Wade.
Viridian PerformaTech E is available only as part of a Viridian ThermoTech insulating glass unit (IGU) and when combined with any one of the Viridian range of products within an IGU, a vast array of performance characteristics and aesthetic options can be achieved.
