More about this product

Vitro’s reflective glasses feature varying levels of reflectivity that create a wide range of aesthetics.

Benefits of reflective glass

  • Color: reflective tinted glass transmits generous levels of visible light and offers color neutrality, which also enhances the tint of the glass substrate underneath the reflective coating. Today, reflective glasses can also include low-e coatings.
  • Visibility: Reflective glass also has a special metallic coating that makes it possible to see out, while preventing people from seeing in, in order to preserve privacy during the day. In addition, reflective glass makes it possible to hide computer wires, vents, fans, HVAC components and other building mechanicals.
  • Glare Control: Reflective glass also impacts visible light transmittance (VLT). Reflective glass allows just the right amount of natural light into a building, while at the same time reduces glare and the need for window blinds and other interior shading devices. In addition, reflective solar control glass reflects a portion of incoming solar radiation, which limits heat penetration into the building and can potentially lower HVAC usage.

Vitro's reflective glasses

Vistacool® Glasses

Vistacool® subtly reflective color-enriched glasses transmit generous levels of visible light and provide color neutrality, which amplifies and enriches the tint of the glass substrate underneath without a mirror-like appearance. More understated than traditional reflective glass, Vistacool® glasses are available in two distinct tints: aqua-blue Azuria® and rich blue Pacifica®. Vistacool® glasses can be combined with Vitro's Solarban® solar control low-e glass or Sungate® 400 low-e glass to achieve light-to-solar gain ratios of as high as 1.66.

Solarcool® Glasses

Solarcool® glasses can be glazed with the reflective coating positioned on either the first or second surface. The glass has improved performance and higher exterior visible-reflectivity with a metallic sheen when installed with the coating on the first surface. Combined in a 1-inch insulating glass unit with clear glass, Solarcool® glasses offer an expansive palette of appearance and performance options with solar heat gain coefficients (SHGCs) ranging from 0.34 to 0.14 and exterior reflectance of up to 37 percent.

When installed with the coating on the second surface, the glass has lower exterior visible reflectivity and maintains the substrate glass color. Combine Solarcool® glasses with Vitro Architectural Glass tinted glasses, such as Solargray®, Solarbronze®, Solexia®, Solarblue®, Azuria® or Pacifica®, to produce an even greater range of aesthetic options.
