Viridian (formerly Pilkington and DMS Glass)  offers the PerformaTech E as part of their existing energy efficiency solutions for the commercial building sector.

Organisations such as the BCA, NABERS and the Green Building Council have set performance requirements outlining strict protocols to reduce solar heat loads in buildings. Current market offerings struggle to achieve these requirements while also having to achieve high visible light transmission.

Viridian PerformaTech E is supplied as a double glazed panel designed to offer high light transmission, very low levels of solar heat gain, low reflectivity and extraordinary levels of thermal insulation, easily meeting performance regulations as well as owner or tenant demands.

With a measurable link between glazing, construction and HVAC cost-savings in addition to ongoing energy savings, Viridian PerformaTech E double glazed panels enable developers, architects, designers and engineers alike to create economically viable, aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sustainable buildings that also significantly contribute to Green Star points.

Performance characteristics of PerformaTech E glass panels that balance the living and working environments include reduced heat and air conditioning load in the building in addition to entry of high levels of natural light into the building.

Wade Bosse, Viridian Glass Commercial Channel Manager for Aus & NZ says that Viridian PerformaTech E has the capacity to significantly reduce heat gain through glass and achieve U values that exceed standard triple glazing, remarkable for a product that remains almost completely clear.

Viridian PerformaTech E double glazing panels are stocked and processed locally for short lead times in delivery. The glass panels can be used in various applications on anything from offices and overhead glazing to large glazed facades and high rise apartments.

Viridian PerformaTech E is available only as part of Viridian ThermoTech insulating glass units (IGU). Combined with any one of the Viridian range of products within an IGU, a vast array of performance characteristics and aesthetic options can be achieved.
