Our photovoltaic glass has been designed to offer buildings a multi-functional performance. Passive properties include thermal and sound insulation, and also natural light. However, it also offers an active property, the energy it generates.
PV Glass enhances comfort inside buildings by filtering out UV and IR radiation, and combats noise pollution as a conventional architectural glass.
FREE AND CLEAN ENERGY
Can you imagine your windows paying for your electricity bill? Yes, this is possible. Our photovoltaic glass generates free, clean electricity from the Sun thanks to the solar cells embedded in its architecture. Install PV Glass and give your bill a break!
The “U-value” measures the amount of heat that passes through the glazing when there is a difference in temperature between its two sides. The lower this value is, the higher the thermal insulation. Onyx Solar’s PV glass offers values up to 0.13 BTU/SqFtK, which ties to the highest performing glass products in the market.
OPTIMIZED SOLAR FACTOR
The solar factor, also known as “g-value” or SHGC, is key to achieve thermal comfort inside the building. Onyx Solar’s glass offers a solar factor between 10% to 40%, which makes it an ideal element to improve indoor comfort.
HARMFUL RADIATION FILTER
The architectural PV glass developed by Onyx Solar reduces the transmission of infrared radiation by up to 95% compared to a conventional laminated glass:; it also filters out 99% of the ultraviolet radiation (UV), which accelerates interior ageing.
Onyx Solar’s PV Glass has been designed to provide natural light in a diffuse manner. Rather than having your windows covered with blinds, PV Glass allows for you to enjoy unobstructed views, enjoy natural light and to avoid glare.
