The universal atmospheric pollution increase is caused by the burning of coal, oil and gas. Pollution and diminishing resources have brought about the search for ecological and inexhaustible energy. It has been shown that this problem may be solved by ready natural energy in the form of wind, water and sun. The only difficulty is the ability to convert natural energy into usable energy.
The energy source with the greatest predictability, which is accessible everywhere is the Sun. In order to convert it into usable energy, various types of solar panels have been constructed.
One of the elements applied in practically all types of panel is the sheet, primarily intended to protect the internal elements of the panel, while ensuring the highest penetration of sunlight heat energy to photovoltaic cells.
The PRESS GLASS product range contains glass designated for solar collectors of thickness 3.2 or 4mm, which is approved for use in solar collectors by the Instytut für Solartechnik SPF in Switzerland.
Glass for the needs of application in solar collectors is subjected to thermal toughening processes, which increase its mechanical resistance to bending several times. Toughened glass is also a safe glass for users, being classified as 1(C)1.
