EXTECH, Exterior Technologies, Inc of Pittsburgh, PA recently designed and installed Macrolux IR multi-wall sheet, supplied by CO-EX Corporation, into the skylight glazing of the Theresa Banks Aquatic Center in Glenarden, MD. The 16mm thick Macrolux sheet offered high light transmission for great natural lighting along with good thermal insulation values to reduce the cost of heating the center, and at the same time increasing patron comfort.
The glazing incorporates CO-EX’s IR solar control additive which reduces the amount of heat coming through the glazing and into the aquatic center. Management is said to be thrilled with the results. The lightweight, durable glazing lets the light in but keeps the heat out.
CO-EX Corporation manufactures a full line of polycarbonate sheet including Macrolux® multi-wall sheet, Rooflite® corrugated sheet, BDL® standing seam modular panels and Modulit vertical glazing systems. CO-EX products are ideal in any application where light transmission, impact strength and durability are important.
