Cabot Aerogel And Advanced Glazings Ltd. Introduce Affordable Insulated Glass Daylighting Solutions

Stocks in this article: CBT

Cabot Corporation (NYSE: CBT) and Advanced Glazings Ltd. announce the launch of SOLERA ® + Lumira ® aerogel R5 daylighting glazing units. The new product joins the groundbreaking suite of SOLERA + Lumira aerogel products. These insulated glass daylighting systems deliver natural light distribution and diffusion as well as superior thermal performance.

The SOLERA + Lumira aerogel R5 system is a 1-inch thick panel in which the insulated glass units are filled with Lumira aerogel, the world's lightest and best insulating solid material. The use of Lumira aerogel diffuses sunlight, removing any interior hot spots, shadows or glare. Compared with gas filled triple-glazed windows, the R5 systems deliver the same level of thermal protection at a similar price. Additionally, the superior full spectrum diffused light from the R5 system provides benefits in light distribution, glare control and permanent performance. The 1-inch thickness of the new R5 unit also makes it easy to install into any standard framing system.

“Lumira aerogel systems have been used by thousands of designers worldwide who are looking for sustainable daylighting solutions,” said James Satterwhite, Cabot Aerogel global commercial manager. “With the addition of this well rounded suite of insulated glass units, designers now have a full tool chest of design options for every type of application. From high profile luxury buildings to elementary schools and medical facilities, these systems have been proven to provide an affordable daylighting solution without compromising energy efficiency or performance.”

Architects and building owners recognize that daylighting has a proven record of increasing human productivity and delivering energy savings. However, as building codes continue to become more stringent, the use of glass in designs has been increasingly challenging for architects. Obtaining thermal efficiency, glare control, lux balance, noise reduction, and aesthetics has often come with trade-offs in complexity of systems and expense. Solera + Lumira aerogel systems enable architects and building owners to affordably and easily meet the challenging requirements of thermal efficiency without compromising optimal daylighting.
