What is solar glazing?

Solar glazing is a unique combination of solar photovoltaics (PV) and glass where the PV cells are laminated between two panes of specialised glazing. The resulting glass laminate serves the dual function of creating energy (kWh) and shade at the same time.

Where can it be used?

Solar glazing can be used wherever conventional glass would be specified – such as curtain walling, atria, windows and shading canopies and can be integrated into sealed glazing systems or conventional bolted glass structures.

What are the benefits of solar glazing?

Glass laminates can be tailor made or bought in existing formats, bespoke designs allow architects and designers to vary light penetration by changing the spacing between individual cells. The finished effect offers a unique aesthetic where natural lighting is combined with dappled shading to provide comfortable naturally lit spaces.
