VISION-LITE

.

DESCRIPTION

SGG VISION-LITE® low-reflective coated glass has the property to significantly reduce the reflection of visible light on the surface of glass. SGG VISION-LITE® is obtained by magnetically enhanced cathodic sputtering under vacuum conditions, by applying transparent coatings of metallic oxide to the glass.

 

PRODUCT APPLICATION

SGG VISION-LITE can be used in a wide variety of external and internal applications that are designed for optimum vision through glass.

External:

  • Shop fronts, picture windows of restaurants
  • Control towers (airports, harbours)
  • Screens orpartitions to separate spectators in stadiums.

Internal:

  • Windows and display-cabinets in museums, protective screens for paintings, display cabinets (shops, display areas)
  • Internal partitions (hospitals, clean rooms, control rooms)
  • Television studios (no reflection in front of the cameras)
  • Interpreter booths and recording studios.

Other:

  • Signage or advertising panels (railway stations, airports, etc.)
  • Machine control rooms on building sites (cranes, tractors).

 

ADVANTAGE

  • Improved visibility: very low residual reflectance (approximately 8 times less reflection than conventional glass) and very high transparency levels.
  • Clarity of objects: better contrast and colour rendering.
  • Large sizes: SGG VISION-LITE is used for large shop windows and large picture windows.
  • Enhanced security: SGG VISION-LITE is available as SGG STADIP PROTECT laminated safety glass.
  • Cost savings: the transparency of SGG VISION-LITE and its very low light reflectance often reduces the need for sun visors outside shop windows and the requirement for artificial lighting.

Important note

The residual reflectance of SGG VISION-LITE anti-reflective glass is very low (approximately 1% in monolithic laminated). It is however still visible under certain lighting conditions, the surrounding environment and the angle of observation. The residual reflectance depends on the angle from which it is viewed. Perpendicular to the glass, it is slightly bluish and can vary slightly.

For external applications (eg: shop windows), large samples should be inspected in situ at the proposed location of use, prior to specification.
 

RANGE

  • SGG VISION-LITE® is available on SGG DIAMANT® substrate as follows:

    • Laminated, SGG VISION-LITE® STADIP PROTECT with low-reflective coating on both external sides.

    • Monolithic, SGG VISION-LITE® II “to be tempered glass”, with low-reflective coating on both sides.

    SGG SEMI VISION-LITE® II, for tempered-to be laminated glass, with a low-reflective coating on

    one side.

Performances

SGG VISION-LITE® low reflective glass is ideal for all applications that require maximum transparency and unimpaired vision through the glass.

Important notes:

• For horizontal interior applications (museum display cabinets, shelves, tables etc), precautions must be taken to avoid frequent and excessive finger marks and the risk of scratching.

• The residual reflectance of SGG VISION-LITE with two lowreflective coated sides is very low (approximately 1%).

It is however still visible under certain lighting conditions viewing angles and in certain surrounding environments. The residual reflectance depends on the angle from which it is viewed.

 

STANDARDS AND REGULATION

SGG VISION-LITE (and Semi VISION-LITE) coated glass is manufactured in Saint-Gobain Glass factories in accordance with the requirements of class A of European standard EN 1096. It carries the relevant CE marking.
