SGG PARSOL is a body-tinted glass, manufactured in the same way as SGG PLANILUX clear float glass. SGG PARSOL has a coloured appearance, as well as basic solar control properties.
SGG PARSOL, like SGG PLANILUX, is intended for universal applications where an attractive appearance or basic solar control properties are required:
- Interior applications for decoration, fittings and furniture
- External applications in single or double-glazing, for facades and overhead glazing
There are 5 colours in the SGG PARSOL range:
- SGG PARSOL GREEN
- SGG PARSOL BRONZE
- SGG PARSOL GREY
- SGG PARSOL DARK GREY
- SGG PARSOL ULTRA GREY
- SGG PARSOL SAPHIRE BLUE
SGG PARSOL products are available in a range of thicknesses, from 3 mm to 12 mm, depending on the colour.
The spectrophotometric performance of the most commonly used SGG PARSOL references are given for:
- Single glazing
- In double-glazed units combined with SGG PLANILUX
- In enhanced thermal insulation double-glazed units with SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL low-emissivity glass. The mechanical and acoustic performances are the same as a standard SGG PLANILUX glass of the same thickness.
The installation possibilities and recommendations for SGG PARSOL are the same as standard clear glass. Depending on the application or location, SGG PARSOL may require heat treatment to avoid the risk of thermal breakage.
See "Technical Support" section.
