SilverScreen. The best performing Solar Screen

Verosol’s 2% Low-E SilverScreen semi transparent has an ultra-fine layer of aluminum, dramatically improving solar energy control, whilst demonstrating excellent view through. Offering ultimate glare control, with an unrivalled solar reflectance of 82%. Specified extensively by architects, Silverscreen is simply the highest performing fabric on the globe.

The metallised backing also creates a uniform appearance from the outside regardless of the colour of the fabric on the inside.

The ultra-thin aluminium coating on the SilverScreen collection provides a spectacular performance improvement in solar control while maintaining excellent view to the outside world. In summer, SilverScreen keeps the heat out with its reflective aluminium layer, which also prevents heat loss in winter. The aluminium layer is like a low-E coating, which results in extremely low radiant power. This leads to significant savings in energy costs (for example, air conditioning, heating) and reduced CO2 emissions. SilverScreen contributes positively towards sustainable building models such as LEED (USA) certification, Green Star (Australia) and Breeam (United Kingdom).

GLOSSARY OF TERMINOLOGY

SOLAR REFLECTION

The ratio or percentage of solar energy reflected by the shading. With Verosol fabric reflection on the aluminium side. Abbreviations: Rs, Rsol. The higher the number the better.

OPENNESS FACTOR

The percentage of open area (pores) to the total area of the shading fabric. These pores are necessary to enable view through. Abbreviation: OF. The higher the number the better viewthrough.

U-VALUE

Thermal heat loss (or gain) through a fenestration. The U-value reflects the energy flow through glass and shading when there is a temperature difference between outside and inside, and is the insulating property. Units are Btu/hr-ft²-°F or W/m².K The lower this U-value, the better the thermal heat insulation. The lower the number the better.

IR EMISSIVITY

The ability of a material surface to radiate (infrared) heat out. Metals in general and specifically aluminium have low IR emitting properties. IR emissivity of; glass is about 0.800, plastics is about 0.900 but a clean aluminium surface has an IR em of 0.15. Therefore metallised fabric has so called Low-E properties. The lower the number the better.

SOLAR FACTOR G-VALUE

Ratio between the total solar energy transmitted into a room through a window and the solar energy on the window. g-value is the solar factor of the combination of glazing and solar protection device. (EN14501). The lower the number the better.

LIGHT TRANSMISSION

The ratio or percentage of visible light passing through the shading. Abbreviations: Tv, Tvis. The lower the number the better.
