GlasPro IGU with ClearShade Honeycomb Core
WHAT IS CLEARSHADE?
ClearShade is a daylighting and energy technology honeycomb core for high-performance glazing. ClearShade provides beautiful natural light, reduces or eliminates glare, and has industry-leading Solar Heat Gain reduction. The ClearShade core is fully encapsulated within the airspace of a GlasPro high-performance Insulating Glass Unit (IGU) and is compatible with pyrolytic Low-E and a range of commercial glazing options.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) = 0.07* Visible Light Transmission (VLT) = 0.61*
*ClearShade performance is dynamic and varies by sun angle relative to the position of the glazing and IGU makeup.
PERFORMANCE POWERED BY THE SUN
The VLT and SHGC are determined by the angle of the sun. In the winter, and in the morning, the sun is low on the horizon and can enter the ClearShade tubes directly. This increases the amount of light in the building and provides radiant heat.
In the summer months, and when the sun is at a higher angle, less light can enter each ClearShade tube. Then ClearShade reflects more of the solar energy away, lowering the SHGC while still providing ample natural light and views. The product is available in different diameters and angles to allow specifiers to optimize the performance of their building based upon their project-specific sun path.
GlasPro IGU with ClearShade Honeycomb
- Reduces solar heat gain.
- Blocks the glare common with traditional high-performance low-E IGU.
- Reduces HVAC costs and keeps work and social spaces usable and comfortable.
- Eliminates the need for external louvers, mechanical shades, or costly electrochromic systems. Reduces installation costs and requires virtually no maintenance costs for the life of the IGU.
