Energy Efficiency

COMFORTPLUS

ComfortPlus™ has long been recognised as Australasia’s leading Low E performance laminate. Initially ComfortPlus was designed as a residential range of Low E laminates. Over time, ComfortPlus has been used increasingly in commercial applications.

COMFORTPLUS TRANSLUCENT

ComfortPlus Translucent™ represents an extension to the ComfortPlus™ range. The product combines the benefits of solar control, insulation and privacy. Initially ComfortPlus was designed as a residential range of Low E laminates. Over time, ComfortPlus has been used increasingly in commercial applications.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT GLASS PERFORMANCE DATA
  •  Insulation – is the product’s U Value. The lower the number the better performance.
  • Solar – is the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). The lower the number, the better the performance.
  • Daylight – is the product’s visible light transmission as a percentage.

ENERGYTECH

The foundation for better insulation and solar control The comprehensive range of Viridian EnergyTech™ and Viridian SolTech™ Low E products offer improved thermal insulation and a choice of solar control performance with low visible light reflection. The range is designed for Australian climate regions and to help meet energy requirements. Being a local manufacturer, Viridian understands our climate is unlike that of Northern Europe or the United States. That’s why we offer a comprehensive choice of Solar Control Low E products to help reduce the extremes of Australia’s warmer weather, balanced with opportunities for passive solar heating.

ENVIROSHIELD PERFORMANCE ITO

Creating an environment rich in natural light whilst dealing with the broader issues of energy efficiency has long been the challenge of building designers. With the development of building code changes encouraging energy efficient design and growing consumer awareness, this challenge has never been greater.
Traditionally large areas of glass are desirable in building facades but can negatively affect a building’s solar and thermal performance; outcomes not favourable to ‘green’ construction.
The introduction of performance interlayers providing energy efficient glass products has enabled Viridian™ to counter these concerns, allowing the freedom to create visually appealing structures with maximum visible daylight and low-energy consumption. There are various products that deal with the issues of minimising energy; few however, are as versatile as Viridian EnviroShield Performance.™

ENVIROSHIELD PERFORMANCE XIR

Maximum daylight with minimum energy consumption, Viridian EnviroShield Performance™ XIR® 71 is a highly specialised glass product. This film is encapsulated in a laminated glass creating a colour neutral, energy efficient product with exceptional solar control properties. XIR rates in the top end for solar control glass products and has the key benefits of an exceptionally high light-transmission of 73% whilst offering superior reduction in solar heat gain (0.50 solar heat gain coefficient). This is comparable and in many cases superior, to the higher end heavily tinted or reflective solar control products. The real beauty of Viridian EnviroShield Performance™ XIR® is that it is colour neutral whilst offering outstanding protection against solar heat gain.

EVANTAGE

Viridian EVantage™ is designed for buildings that require high level solar control and the insulating benefits of a Low E coating.

Description EVantage is an economical option for projects that require glazing alternatives better than standard glass and that in the past have had to specify top of the range high performance insulating glass units and solar control laminates. EVantage is manufactured by the pyrolitic low E coating process. In this online chemical vapour deposition process, a gas reacts with the semi molten surface of the float glass to form a reflective coating on clear and toned substrates.

The result is a product that combines solar and thermal performance, subtle reflectivity and glare control. The base colour of the glass whether clear, grey or bronze, Viridian SuperGreen™ or Viridian SuperBlue™ is maintained with a significant boost to solar and thermal characteristics through the proprietary Low E coating.

LIGHTBRIDGE

Viridian LightBridge™ double glazing creates a seamless bridge between inside and out, allowing us to bring into our daily lives the light, space and colours of nature. LightBridge offers  a market-leading combination of insulation, security and noise reduction properties for domestic windows, which means we can easily achieve the expansive glazing we desire to bathe our homes in natural light and reconnect with the world around us.

LOW E SOLAR CONTROL

Developed in Australasia for our environmental conditions and energy efficiency measures The Viridian Solar Control™ with Low E range provides excellent solar control with higher insulation than standard glass. They are a combination of solar control glass and coatings with the option of additional solar control interlayers.

This glass range is designed for applications where high daylight transmission is required without reflectivity plus moderate to high solar control and insulation to reduce heat loss. Recognised as a simple and effective solution to balancing design objectives with Energy Code requirements.

 

PERFORMATECH E

Viridian PerformaTech E™ balances high levels of light transmission with very low levels of solar heat gain, low reflectivity and exceptional levels of thermal insulation.

The performance characteristics help significantly reduce both the heat and air conditioning levels of a building, in turn actively contributing to the provision of a perfectly balanced living and working environment.

SMARTGLASS

SmartGlass is a range of single glazed toughenable Low E products offering insulation and a choice of solar protection, with low reflectivity ideally suited to the demands of Australian residential applications. SmartGlass provides excellent performance and versatility for single glazed windows.
SmartGlass has been selected for Australian climate conditions to assist in achieving energy Star Ratings for home designs, whilst still capturing natural light and views. Manufactured using hardcoat Low E coating for excellent durability  and ease of processing and handling.

 

SOLTECH

The foundation for better insulation and  solar control. The comprehensive range of Viridian EnergyTech™ and Viridian SolTech™ Low E products offer improved thermal insulation and a choice of solar control performance with low visible light reflection. The range is designed for Australian climate regions and to help meet energy requirements. Being a local manufacturer, Viridian understands our climate is unlike that of Northern Europe or the United States. That’s why we offer a comprehensive choice of Solar Control Low E products to help reduce the extremes of Australia’s warmer weather, balanced with opportunities for passive solar heating.

SUPERBLUE, GREEN & GREY

These super toned glasses provide significant improvements in solar performance compared to VFloat™ toned glass. The colours are deeper, however natural views from the interior are maintained with low-exterior reflectance. They are readily available and can be processed and fabricated similarly to normal float glass to provide an economical choice for reducing air-conditioning costs.

THERMO TECH

Glass plays an increasingly important role as building regulations place great emphasis on saving energy in both residential and commercial designs. The selection of increased thermal insulation, or glass with a lower U Value, combined with solar control, is an important decision in a building envelope’s thermal performance.
