It can be used to make electrodes for flexible solar panels, next generation sensors and low-emissivity glass
Representatives from the Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (Gord), which administers GSAS in Qatar, awarded the 41-floor building a platinum operations rating -- the second highest level -- after assessing its energy-saving features, including LED lights, double glazing with low-emissivity glass
and a facade that reflects sunlight.
Window glass has been upgraded from clear tempered glass to low-emissivity glass
. Low-E glass is designed to reflect heat, UV rays and IR wave rays back to its source while still allowing sunlight to pass through.
Notable green aspects of the project include underground utilities, solar-powered green roofs, and the use of sustainable materials such as engineered wood, low-emissivity glass
, odorless paint, permeable pavers that direct stormwater into a containment pond, and other natural and recycled components.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified building has a double-paned, low-emissivity glass
curtain wall, which allows natural light to enter 90 percent of the interior office space, but also reflects infrared and ultraviolet radiation to protect those inside from sun damage.
(Low-E) is made to reduce heat transfer and is similar to clear glass.
, concrete and metal construction materials routinely block radio frequency (RF) signals, which inevitably results in dropped and missed calls.
The Murano is eco-friendly, enjoys floor-to-ceiling glass walls, video intercom and low-emissivity glass
It spans 60,000 square meters and incorporates green building materials by PPG such as low-VOC coatings and low-emissivity glass
. Since PPG began construction of the plant in October 2009, it has aimed to conserve energy, water and raw materials that will make the facility a model of sustainability in the region.
Corp., a major glass manufacturer in Taiwan, recently announced to kick off mass production of its Low-E low-emissivity glass
at different production sites, including the one in Taicang (Jiangsu Province) and another in Chengdu (Sichuan Province), China in the first quarter.
Insulating, low-emissivity glass
from Guardian Industries mitigates air transfer through the structure to reduce heating and cooling loads and costs.
The cartel concerned flat glass for use in the construction sector (basic float glass, low-emissivity glass
, laminated glass and unprocessed mirror glass).
