When the sun beats down, your car interior heats up at an alarming rate. The wheel become too hot to touch, seats burn when you sit, and the trapped air makes you sweat in seconds. With more glass being used in today’s cars, the amount of solar energy getting inside keeps going up. Anti-heat glass is how to cool it down.
Unlike shades and other aftermarket solutions, anti-heat glass provides total protection across the whole of the car, even when you’re driving. You’ll feel the difference from the moment you get inside.
While there are several types of anti-heat glass, each can keep interior temperatures low in the hottest weather, creating more comfort while increasing the life span of upholstery. Because you’ll have less need for air conditioning, you’ll also save money on fuel. Ask your car or glass dealer for details.
- Superior comfort. Anti-heat glass blocks solar energy from building up while the car is moving or parked. That means you not only enjoy a cooler interior when you get inside, but you stay cool when driving or sitting in traffic.
- Improved fuel efficiency. Anti-heat glass reduces the need for air conditioning, saving money on fuel while decreasing engine strain. In fact, anti-heat glass works so well that vehicles fitted with it can use an AC unit up to 8% less powerful with no change in comfort.
- Longer interior lifetime. Seats, steering wheels and dashboards quickly fade from repeated exposure to high temperatures, especially those made of leather. Anti-heat glass keeps these materials cooler, increasing their durability and protecting their colour.
- 360° protection. Every window of your car can be inexpensively fitted with anti-heat glass, creating total heat protection throughout the vehicle.
When the outside temperature is 27°C, your car interior can heat up to 58°C in just 15 minutes. That’s why anti-heat glass is so critical. Even in extreme conditions, heat reflecting glass allows a parked car to return to a normal temperature 25% faster than standard glass.
- Heat absorbing glass soaks up solar energy before it gets inside your car, preventing heat build-up and reducing the need for air conditioning
- Heat reflecting glass uses an invisible silver oxide coating to direct solar energy away from the vehicle, dramatically reducing heat build-up. The coating is only a few nanometres thick, so there’s no change to the look of the glass
