Hilite is Solar Gard’s flagship product line – blocking 55% of the total solar energy while barely visible to the naked eye.

Key Benefits

  • Industry leading ‘spectral selectivity’ keeps the heat out while letting the light in
  • Less visibly reflected than clear glass providing superior optical clarity
  • High heat rejection results in improved indoor comfort
  • UV blockers defend people and property from damaging UV rays

Performance Notes:

  • Performance results are calculated using NFRC methodology and LBNL Window software, applied to 1/4" (6mm) clear glass and are subject to variations within industry standards and only intended for estimating purposes. This data is provided for informational purposes only and subject to normal manufacturing variances.
  • Performance results for glare and fade reduction are calculated by comparing filmed glass to that of untreated glazing.
