To create a stunning structure, the architectural vision must come to life with the right building materials. Mitrex Solar Windows were created with design and functionality in mind, bringing people closer to the natural world while serving an additional purpose of energy generation. Mitrex Solar Glass can be used in place of regular glass or tempered glass without compromising on aesthetics or performance in a variety of window systems used in modern architecture. Our glass products are fully customizable in terms of tints, transparency, size, and function while maximizing the amount of energy produced. Mitrex Solar Glass ranges from fully transparent glass to translucent and transitional, depending on the building’s aesthetic. Mitrex Solar Glass applications in building materials include punch windows, curtainwalls, window walls, and more customizable system solutions.

Mitrex Solar Windows has transformed a traditional, single-purpose building material into an energy-producing, sustainable, revenue-generating, aesthetically-pleasing, multi-purpose material. Our Solar Glass is available in transparent and semi-opaque options, as well as bird-friendly glass options to suit any application. Depending on the aesthetic desired, we use different solar technologies. Thin-film solar technology is used in cases where a transparent aesthetic is required. Monocrystalline solar technology is used in cases where the glass can showcase both opaque and translucent areas on a single pane. Our Solar Glass can also have various tints and colours applied to meet the design needs of the project. The frame of the glass can be customized to meet any aesthetic, seamlessly integrating solar generating building materials into any structure.
Mitrex transparent glass panes use thin-film technology to achieve a see-through glass look. The level of transparency of this glass can be customized depending on the architectural designs.
Mitrex Solar Windows can be customized depending on the application. Glass panels are available in transparent or opaque options, and Mitrex can even provide bird-friendly glass. The colour of the glass can also be tailored to the necessary design, and the transparency level can be customized to provide more opaque or transparent glass.
Our Solar Windows also use textured glass to produce beautiful, energy-generating glass surfaces. Glass options include low iron, matte solar glass, pyramid solar glass, wood glass, rain glass, and satinlite glass. These textures can add to the beauty of a structure by meeting the architects’ vision of the façade. Mitrex prioritizes the design of their Solar Glass products to increase the adoption of sustainable building materials. Depending on the texture of the glass selected, the efficiency of the solar modules is affected. Some textures increase efficiency, such as solar glass, while others decrease the efficiency, such as wood or rain glass.
Regardless of the application, Mitrex has designed solar glass to meet any design or system requirement. Mitrex has designed solar glass systems that can be incorporated into curtainwalls, window walls, punch windows, picture windows, hung windows, skylights, and more. Architects and designers should not have to choose between sustainability and aesthetics. Mitrex systems can be tailored to fit any application while ensuring beauty and functionality.
Mitrex Solar Glass systems are designed to replace traditional, non-solar glass in every application. The goal of Mitrex is to integrate solar technology into every material that has access to sunlight. This will reduce global carbon emissions and allows owners to passively generate revenue and supplement their energy generation with renewable power. The integration of solar energy transforms single-purpose building materials into multi-purpose materials and changes how we see our structures.
