Glasses with a hard A-type pyrolytic coating according to EN 1096-1 is called reflective glasses which control the sun lights. Different colors, like blue, bronze, clear, green, grey are available.
Reflective solar control glass is subjected to thermal breakage risks. In order to avoid thermal breakage risks, toughening or heat strengthening is recommended. When laminating reflective glass, all panes of the laminated glass should be either toughened or heat strengthened in order to avoid thermal breakage risks.

Translucency: The percentage of light that passes through the glass.
Daylight Reflection: The percentage of light that is reflected by the glass.
Solar Energy Total Translucency: The percentage of the total sun heat that affects the indoors.
Shade Coefficient: Comparison of the total translucency of solar energy with 3 mm colourless glass.
Heat Conductivity Coefficient (U value): The measure of the heat escaping outdoors.
