Pilkington Arctic Blue™ high performance body tinted glass in a unique blue colour that offers solar control performance without the use of surface coating, has been used as an external pane of insulated glass. The glass has been toughened to reduce the risk of thermal breakage. The solar control Pilkington Arctic Blue™ T has been combined with Pilkington Optitherm™ low-emissivity glass as an internal pane for optimum solar and thermal performance.
