Energy-efficient diffuse daylighting system
Duo-Gard Daylighting with 3S Solar Block represents an advance in high-performance daylighting technology using translucent polycarbonate glazing. The vision-enhanced, spectrally-selective coating is applied to the interior of the sheet’s structural cells in order to block all ultraviolet and 90% of infrared light, meanwhile allowing up to 70% visible light transmission. The results are lower energy costs, improved interior environments and higher productivity.
3S Solar Block brings higher performance to all applications requiring the benefits of natural light without heat gain. It reduces a building’s heat load by up to 50%, depending on the coating’s thickness—allowing for the installation of smaller, more efficient air conditioning equipment that enjoys longer life spans and less maintenance.
The coating, framing, and shatter-resistant, self-extinguishing polycarbonate glazing are all available in many complementary colors.
