PILGRIM’S HOSTEL

PHOTOVOLTAIC WINDOWS AND DOOR

 

The refurbishment of this small Hostel at Gotarrendura, Spain, includes the integration of low-e amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass in the windows and door. This is the only glass capable of filtering out 99% of ultraviolet radiation and up to 95% of infrared radiation, depending on the degree of semi-transparency selected.
