How do Koola Windows work?

Whilst homeowners are continuing to enhance natural light through bigger windows and doors installations, there grows an even bigger concern for overheating. Throughout the summer months, which are only getting hotter and longer, the infrared part of the sunlight that passes through glass produces a great amount of heat. A good solution for this? Koola Windows.

Koola Windows is a window that features solar controlled glass. Solar controlled glass features a metallic coating applied to one side of the glass pane that enables sunlight to pass through the window whilst redirecting away part of the infrared. As such, indoor areas remain bright without compromise – ensuring a comfortable living space.

Maximize the possibilities of comfort in your home

For south-facing rooms, solar control glass can be crucial to making spaces more comfortable during the summer months when UV rays are at their strongest. The high absorptance qualities of our Koola Windows technology allow for solar radiation to be easily absorbed by the glass unit – meaning even the areas of your home that receive the most amount of sunlight can remain cool and calming spaces. Not only that, but the special metal oxide coating of the glass unit also further protects homeowners from the negative consequences of UV rays, therefore ensuring a safe indoor environment.

Can Koola Windows save energy?

Solar control is a key issue in terms of energy saving. If there is too much sunlight allowed to enter the home through your windows, excess heat builds up throughout the day and creates an uncomfortable environment. Whilst excess heat exists as a seasonal issue, glare can cause difficulties for homeowners all year round. Our Koola Windows work to save energy spent on air conditioning units and fans – assuring a return on investment for homeowners. Energy bills will become far less during our prolonged summer months, as well as the need for expensive blinds and shades.

Frequently Asked Questions

Want to know more about Koola Windows and how solar control works? We’ve got answers to the most common questions below. If you can’t find the answer, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

What is a solar control window?

A solar control window is a window that’s been specially designed to reflect direct sunlight and keep a building cool even during the hottest part of the day. It achieves this while still allowing for natural daylight to pass through – reducing the need for artificial lighting.

How does it work?

The glass features a special metallic coating to redirect sunlight. In turn, your living space remains cool without the risk of UV rays or any damage to your furnishings.

Is this new technology?

Yes and no. Solar control glass has been used in conservatory roods for many years, though it’s not commonplace in windows. With UK summers getting hotter, the team here at Ideal Windows thought it would make sense to start using the same solar technology we know and love from conservatories and bring it to windows. Thus, the Koola brand was formed. Solar control glass is often used for conservatory spaces to help reduce the amount of excess heat and glare in your home. At Ideal Window Solutions, we recognise the European influence of slimline windows and large glass panes is quickly becoming a popular choice for UK homeowners. As such, the need for a window that ensures comfortability is even more important. A solar control window includes a metallic coating applied to one side of the glass to help redirect sunlight and keep the home cool and protected.

Why does my home need to be protected from glare?

Excess glare in the home places homeowners at risk to harmful UV rays as well as damaged and faded furniture and fabrics. UV rays in the home are responsible for more than 80% of damaged caused to carpets, floor rugs, curtains, and furnishings. Why risk the expense of your furniture and health? The metallic coating technology of Koola Windows equip homeowners with the protection needed for a safe and stylish home.
