SOLERA® T-R18+Aerogel

At a nominal thickness of 3”, SOLERA® T-R18+Aerogel, provides an impressive thermal performance and sound transmittance, while maximizing daylighting. Finally, an alternative to the basic, insulated wall – all while maintaining desired daylighting. And, all the SOLERA® products, have stabilized aerogel – which is warranted against settling. All our products fit into a standard framing system.

SOLERA®S-R18+Aerogel

At a nominal thickness of 3”, SOLERA® S-R18+Aerogel, provides an impressive thermal performance and sound transmittance, while maximizing daylighting. Finally, an alternative to the basic, insulated wall – all while maintaining desired daylighting. And, all the SOLERA® products, have stabilized aerogel – which is warranted against settling. All our products fit into a standard framing system.

 

SOLERA® T-R9+Aerogel

For climates that may not require the performance of our R18 product, we offer an alternative, SOLERA® T-R9+Aerogel. At a nominal thickness of 1.75”, SOLERA® +  Aerogel R9, provides a significant thermal performance and sound transmittance, while maximizing your daylighting opportunities.

SOLERA® S-R9+Aerogel

For climates that may not require the performance of our R18 product, we offer an alternative, SOLERA® S-R9+Aerogel. At a nominal thickness of 1.75”, SOLERA® S-R9+Aerogel, provides a significant thermal performance and sound transmittance, while maximizing your daylighting opportunities.

 

SOLERA®  R5+Aerogel

For the budget conscious project, AGL is proud to announce the launch of our SOLERA® R5+Aerogel . While reaping the benefits of a stabilized aerogel, our newest product offers an alternative to the R18 and R9 products. And, all the SOLERA®products, have stabilized aerogel – which is warranted against settling. At a nominal thickness of 1”, our SOLERA® R5+Aerogel gives you the most economical SOLERA® + Aerogel solution.

What is Aerogel?

Studies show that comfort, productivity, learning, healing and customer consumption/retention are dramatically improved by the tactical use of natural light as the primary source of illumination in workplaces, schools, hospitals, homes, and retail environments. Traditionally, this had resulted in a compromise, as the conventional materials used to transmit natural light have demonstrated an inability to insulate, while highly insulative materials have been unable to transmit meaningful quantities of daylight.  Current transparent daylight systems, while allowing maximum daylight, also bring problems such as glare, solar overheating, drafts, hot spots, and high contrast zones.  Harnessing the exclusive properties of Lumira® aerogel for use in daylighting systems has changed all that with:

  • Unsurpassed thermal insulation
  • R-value of 8 per inch / U-value of .64W/m²K per 25 mm’
  • Increased natural light transmission
  • 75% per 3/8 inch / 80% per cm
  • Superior light diffusion – elimination of glare
  • Improved acoustic performance
  • Reduced solar heat gain/loss
  • Decreased energy consumption – heat, air conditioning, lighting, ventilation, carbon emissions
  • Unmatched moisture resistance – 100% hydrophobic
  • Exceptional color stability and insulation performance

Aerogel is among the lightest and most effective insulating materials in the world.  Cabot’s Lumira® brand aerogel, formerly Nanogel®, is a solid which consists largely of air (>90%) contained in a structure with pore sizes less than the mean free path of air molecules, which severely inhibits heat transfer through the material, enabling world-class performance.
