The type of window and frame used in a vehicle is based on several factors, including safety, aesthetic, and required level of customisation. Panoramic Components manufactures a complete catalogue of glass products used by the automobile industry.
Strong and transparent, laminated glass is made by sandwiching a layer of vinyl between two pieces of glass. Commonly found in automobile windscreens, laminated glass can easily be manufactured in a wide variety of thicknesses, tints, and curvatures, making it an extremely versatile product with many uses and applications.
Blocks up to 99% of UV light
Reduced noise transmission
Doesn’t shatter when broken
Low emissivity reduces heat gain from the sun
Withstands impact better than other types of glass
Tempered glass (also known as toughened glass) is created by placing a pre-cut pane of glass into a furnace which heats it to 650°C and then rapidly cooling it. This produces qualities that make tempered auto glass ideal for side and rear windows in a variety of passenger and industrial vehicles.
Increased thermal resistance
Up to 5 times stronger than regular glass
Shatters into small, blunt pieces when broken
Solar Control Glass
Manufactured by incorporating chemical layers inside the glass, solar control glass is created to allow sunlight to pass through while reflecting solar heat. Solar control glass has a wide array of energy-saving applications across the architectural and automotive industries.
Reduced visual glare
Blocks up to 99% of UV light
Extremely low solar heat build-up
Does not affect the transmission of natural light
Excellent insulation qualities if combined with double-glazing
Also known as factory tint, privacy glass is created by darkening through an electrical process called “deep dipping” which injects a dye into the glass during the manufacturing process. Although privacy glass does not offer the same level of uv protection as film-based tints, it offers several other benefits.
Reduced visible light transmission
Increased privacy for passengers and possessions
No bubbling or peeling associated with tint films (which are usually applied after manufacturing)
Frame with Glass
As the name suggests, this is a complete sliding window solution consisting of within a sliding frame. Panoramic components frame-with-glass OE and OEM products have SABS (sans) certification and comply with EU (e1-mark) and us department of transportation (dot) standards.
