ENERGY-EFFICIENT GLAZING THAT DOESN’T TURN DARK IN THE AFTERNOON
Panelite’s ClearShade honeycomb glazing provides outstanding solar shading AND ample diffuse daylight.
Why does this matter?
Most energy-saving facade glazing products control solar heat by reducing natural light – such as electrochromic glass, which turns dark in the afternoon, or shading devices which also block daylight at peak hours. ClearShade saves energy by reducing BOTH artificial lighting loads and HVAC loads, while providing high quality daylight and views for occupant health and productivity.
EXAMPLE ONE – SIBLEY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BY WENDEL ARCHITECTS
ClearShade™ provides ample diffuse daylight for children to thrive.
EXAMPLE TWO – RALEIGH UNION STATION BY CLEARSCAPES ARCHITECTS
ClearShade provides the large terminal space with high-quality daylight while maintaining views outward to the city.
EXAMPLE THREE – HENRY MADDEN LIBRARY AT CSUF BY A.C. MARTIN
ClearShade provides high-quality daylight that delights library patrons. The architects deliberately chose the smallest radius of honeycomb core (4mm) to minimize views outward and to create an intimate, ethereal, focused atmosphere for reading and studying.
EXAMPLE FOUR – LAKEVIEW PUBLIC SCHOOL BY WENDEL ARCHITECTS
