COOL-LITE SKN 183 is the latest addition to our glass portfolio, ensuring you have access to the most innovative types of solar control glass on the market. Ideal for façade glazing, such as curtain walls, window band facades and punctuated facades, the glass stands out for its clarity and low refection, enabling natural light to fill a room or building without the risk of overheating on sunny days.

COOL-LITE SKN 183 - optimal performance 

The clearest choice

Commercial, pubic and residential buildings can all benefit from COOL-LITE SKN 183, particularly those where high daylight income is desired to achieve a bright interior atmosphere, with no compromise on performance. Typical of the applications suited to this type of glass are:

Educational facilities where daylight helps students focusing and learning
Hospitals where daylight is a healing factor and source of well-being
Mixed-use projects (commercial and residential applications in the same building) where the window/wall ratio is often smaller, thus limiting the amount of daylight coming through the façade.

COOL-LITE SKN 183 delivers its outstanding selectivity thanks to a highly advanced double-silver coating which is applied to the glass by Saint-Gobain Glass. This is the key to providing the best of both worlds, enabling a neutral appearance and 75% light transmission without compromise.

Cooling effect for zero carbon buildings

In addition to excellent light transmission, COOL-LITE SKN 183 provides very effective solar protection with a solar factor of 0.40 in double glazed units (DGUs). This enables façade design that can help meet top-class energy performance objectives while maintaining a cool, comfortable internal environment for occupants. This reduces the requirement for energy-consuming air-conditioning, hence making COOL-LITE SKN 183 ideal for clients who are seeking to create the greenest buildings.

Superior thermal performance

The advanced coating developed for COOL-LITE SKN 183 also enables clients to reduce their energy consumption in winter months. The dual-action of reflecting excessive heat from the sun and providing excellent thermal insulation when external temperatures drop, keeps a building’s climate stable and comfortable. Heating loads are reduced in winter as a result of the product’s excellent thermal insulation levels with a Ug value of 1.0 W/m²K.
