When viewed at an angle, triple-silver low-E products can experience color shift/change. SNX 70+ coated glass was developed to provide neutral, slight gray appearance so reflected color will be more consistent whatever the viewing angle.
Targeting growing architectural trends for greater color neutrality and focusing on helping to ensure consistent aesthetic whether glass is viewed directly or at an angle, SNX 70+ coated glass expands Guardian’s range of triple-silver SunGuard low-E coating innovation with an aesthetically pleasing, high-performing option that helps buildings deliver the attractive exteriors and bright, comfortable interiors architects seek.
