It offers a market leading combination of insulation, security and noise reduction properties for domestic windows.

Unwanted noise from traffic, aircraft, trains, factories or even boisterous neighbours can be reduced with the right selection of glass. Viridian VLam Hush™ is a laminate that uses a specially developed interlayer to dampen noise, providing enhanced sound insulation performance. By using this innovative laminate, thinner lighter glass can be used for an equivalent acoustic performance of thicker glass.
Renew™ has a specially developed, completely transparent exterior coating. This is applied during manufacture to clear glass, producing an innovative dual cleaning action. Once exposed to daylight it reacts with the UV rays to breakdown and disintegrate organic dirt deposits such as bird droppings and tree sap. When water hits the glass, Renew™ has a hydrophilic quality that assists in washing dirt away without leaving spots or streaks. Renew™ is primarily for commercial applications.
