Advanced Glazing Technologies
Advanced Glazing Technology for Maximum Control, Comfort & Efficiency
Maximize All the Benefits of the Sun without the Glare, Heat Gain and Fading.
Wasco‘s Advanced Glazing Series allows you to harness all the positive benefits of natural daylight without suffering the undesirable effects such as excessive heat gain, glare and fading.
Wasco has a complete line of technologically advanced glazing solutions to provide maximum design versatility and optimum daylighting for multiple applications.
- Electrochromic Glass – SageGlass
- Translucent Insulated Glass – Solera
- Triple-Glazed Glass
SageGlass is an electronically tintable glass that can be switched from clear to a dark tint at the click of a button, or programmed to respond to changing sunlight and heat conditions. Energy consumption and costs are greatly reduced. SageGlass products offer significant advantages over conventionally glazed products because they provide the highest possible solar control without sacrificing the view through the glass.
- Improves building energy performance
- Eliminates need for shades or louvers
- Enables more sustainable building design and construction

Mono-Crystalline or a-Si Thin Film
Using semi-transparent thin-film modules, or crystalline modules with spaced cells between two layers of glass, designers may use PV to create unique daylighting features in Wasco’s skylight PV systems. The BIPV elements can also help to reduce unwanted cooling load and glare associated with large expanses of architectural glazing, provide savings in materials and electricity costs, reduce use of fossil fuels and emission of ozone depleting gases, and add architectural interest to the building.
Solera is a line of translucent insulated glass units that are used in architectural daylighting to provide highest quality diffuse daylight. Solera converts harsh direct beam sunlight into soft diffuse daylight while allowing you to design your desired light level. Solera Glazings are engineered to provide higher light diffusing power.
- Solera® L – 1” Insulated glass
- Solera® T – 3” Insulated glass
Solera® with Lumira® Aerogel
Solera with Lumira is a daylighting strategy that dramatically improves thermal performance making an extraordinary product even better. The inclusion of Lumira® aerogel in daylighting systems virtually eliminates the historical trade-off of insulation vs. natural light by dramatically improving thermal performance. What is Lumira Aerogel?
