Overview: Glas Trösch AG, HY-TECH-GLASS is a Swiss company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets Optical Thin Film Coatings on Flat glass. As a subsidiary of Glas Trösch Holding AG it’s headquarter is in Bützberg, Switzerland. The company has been founded in 1997.
Your particular application dictates whether you choose beamsplitter glass with 70% light transmission and 30% reflection, or our 50% option. Every single variant of our beamsplitter glass has an optical thin-film coating on one side that reflects and transmits light waves that fall upon it at a specific ratio. You can choose from monolithic glass, laminated glass or toughened/tempered glass as the core material. To prevent ghosting, you can also choose to have a single-sided LUXAR® anti-reflective coating on the opposite side of all our beamsplitter glass sheets.
LUXAR® Magnetron Sputtered anti-reflective glass with almost no reflectance, is an innovative product of Glas Trösch. With a reflection of less than 0.5 %, mirror-like effects will be prohibited and therefore LUXAR® is almost invisible.
LUXAR® is used for applications where a partition is needed, but should not be visible.
SPYMIRROR is a single side coated one way mirror which is used as partition between a supervised and an observation area. The reflection of the coated side is higher than for the glass side. Thus the observer can look clearly into a bright illuminated area (at least lighting ratio between the areas 1:5), while for the observant the partition acts as a mirror.
EUROWHITE® can be used virtually anywhere on your facade, in glass design and interior decoration. The light-conveying property of EUROWHITE® is the key factor in the aesthetic ease of using the various glass applications.
More natural light, higher overall energy permeability and optical brilliance give you an enormous range of applications.
SILVERSTAR® ENplus means builder/owners no longer have to give up the idea of generously glazed building surfaces because SILVERSTAR's ground-breaking innovation allow a cost-effective and reliable form of manufacturing of insulation glass by foregoing expensive inert gases and utilising realistic gas filling volumes.
SILVERSTAR® ENplus can be combined with safety and functional glasses, meaning it fits the requirements of virtually all applications.
The development of the new and highly effective SILVERSTAR SUNSTOP T solar control coatings assures even greater planning freedom for solar control during the summer. Amply sized interiors with a pleasant temperature level help to mitigate the abrupt transition from indoors to outdoors. The exemplary nature of its reflection values helps to achieve lower energy consumption by air-conditioning equipment, and hence a marked reduction in costs.
Our Silverstar Combi products are rightfully considered as being multifunctional solar control glasses. For example, our Silverstar Combi Neutral glass dazzles by having a high light transmission, deep total energy passage and excellent heat insulating properties.
These extraordinary values are particularly suitable for energy savings, i.e. cost reduction for artifical lighting, air-conditioning and heating systems.
Modern architecture requires aesthetic and creative design options with glass. Planners and builder-owners request optimised viewing-through capacity with minimum reflection and reduced heat loss for high a degree of living comfort.
Architects and facade designers use our mirrored glass and anti-reflective glass to create elegant mantles for buildings. These mantles not only have a highly aesthetic value, but also meet all heat insulation and solar reflection requirements. See for yourself just how close we can bring compactness and transparency.
This is why many architects and interior designers choose anti-reflective glass for their partition walls as they allow visual contact without any of the noise. It is a stylish way to create a relationship between spaces, while establishing clear barriers. By using mirrored glass, you will create privacy while not restricting the requirement for an open view to the exterior.
