A custom Ombra™ Wood insulated glass unit was developed for exterior glazing applications using a simple screen pattern, with the simplicity of wood, that provides shading shading performance and a natural visual aesthetic. Ombra™ offers the benefits of both visual privacy and a visible light transmittance of up to 50%.
In addition Ombra™ is able to achieve a solar heat gain coefficient superior to that of other insulated glass units without the need for tinted, reflective or specialty glass. This dramatically reduces climate control requirements and results in significant energy savings over the life of a building.
Ombra™ Wood is offered in only one screen pattern created out of kiln dried wood that will not twist or warp in the sun.
