Anti-Reflective Glass: Reduced glare for crystal clear vision and added safety
GlareShield® is an anti-reflective double side coated glass that provides improved visual transmission, picture clarity and reduced glare with its very low residual reflection. Traditional glass reflects 8-12% of the incident light. GlareShield®, however, reflects as little as 0.5% of the incident light, allowing up to 99.5% of light to pass through without unwanted reflections or mirror-like effects. It is thus used in structures where low glare is a requirement and crystal-clear quality of glass is key, as in larger west facing facades, retail displays, stadiums, and viewing galleries.
GlareShield® provides a new dimension for glass as it is seemingly invisible with almost no reflectance or colour distortions in transmission. Produced with a durable multi-layered optical thin coating with Magnetron Sputtering Technology which performs like hard coating, it can be tempered, laminated, double-glazed or ceramic printed using VisionInk®. GlareShield® is available on regular float, extra clear and tinted green and grey float glass.
GlareShield® Features & Benefits
GlareShield® is produced by Magnetron Sputtering Technology which creates a superior hard coating finish. The multilayered coating of metal oxide does not corrode, is hard wearing and durable. In terms of abrasion resistance, GlareShield® is comparable to regular clear float glass.
GlareShield® improves transparency and increases light transmission with its high degree of clarity and non-reflective surface.
GlareShield® reduces glare, mirror-like effects and reflections to minimum. With a reflection of less than 0.5%, the nonreflective properties are optimised for direct viewing of the glass, making it almost invisible.
