From curtain walls and skylights, to punch windows and wall windows, Mitrex Solar Glass can be incorporated into any building design and window system. Mitrex Solar Glass uses photovoltaic technology integrated into glass products to produce green energy while allowing end-users to take advantage of beautiful views. Specifically, this system uses advanced transparent and opaque technology that provides power. We believe solar energy generation should be integrated into any structure touched by the sun, and our versatile glass products do just that.

Mitrex solar integrated glazed window systems consist of glass layers separated by an aluminum mullion and various spacers to ensure the highest insulation level. Mitrex window systems’ exterior layer is two layers of heat-tempered, laminated, low iron glass that surrounds integrated solar cells. The interior glass of Mitrex window systems can be low iron, low-E, or regular glass, depending on the desired design. In between the exterior and interior glass layers, an air cavity separates the two panes to provide a higher insulation value for the system, resulting in superior thermal performance.
Mitrex window systems are structurally integral and maintain their insulating value over time to ensure long-term energy efficiency. We use the most advanced technology to maximize visible light transmittance and minimize the solar heat gain coefficient. This ensures our systems generate as much energy as possible while controlling reflections and glares on the buildings’ envelope.
Mitrex Solar Windows also use window glazing to manage energy efficiency. Mitrex window systems feature glazed windows, with the exterior glass layer consisting of two glass panels. The glazing improves the thermal insulation of the system. At Mitrex, we have developed windows that passively generate energy while also reducing energy loss.
Mitrex can use a variety of glass in our window systems depending on the application, operation, architectural needs, and energy generation goals. Each glass type results in a unique appearance and set of properties for any window system.
Mitrex can use low iron glass for the entire window system for unrestricted views and clean energy generation. The low iron glass contains less iron, resulting in extremely clear glass that increases light transparency, maximizing brightness and clarity. Applications requiring an unrestricted view can see incredible results with low iron glass compared to regular glass.
Aluminum mullions are an essential element of the window system as they hold the panes and spaces in place and ensure the window system is integrated into the structure of a building. At Mitrex, we ensure our aluminum mullions in the window systems maximize efficiency, strength, and durability.
