Southwall Technologies Inc., the worldwide innovator of energy-saving films and glass products, has announced that it has won one of its largest architectural glass projects, the Guangzhou TV building in China. Currently under construction next to the Guangzhou TV and Sightseeing Tower, the landmark building utilizes Southwall“s heat-reflective XIR film to minimize solar heat gain while maximizing visible light and energy efficiency. Laminated between 15mm clear tempered low-iron glass covering 26,000 sq.m. (280,000 sq.ft.) of the building envelope, the XIR film blocks over 50% of the sun“s heat (shading coefficient of 0.49) with visible light transmission higher than 60%, providing a cool and comfortable environment that lowers HVAC system loads and operating costs. Moreover, the XIR film maximizes clarity with reflectance of just 8%, reducing interior fading by blocking 99.5% of UV rays.
