FEATURED GLASS: COOL-LITE SKN 176 II, COOL-LITE SKN 144 II, COOL-LITE XTREME 60/28 II

In 2019 University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) launched a £35 million state-of-the-art teaching facility that addresses the need for innovation to encourage the next generation of world-class engineers.

The research and teaching facilities include a range of laboratories focused on driving across sector technologies forward.

The centre features a range of Saint-Gobain’s coated glass products in the façade including COOL-LITE SKN 176 II, COOL-LITE SKN 144 II and COOL-LITE XTREME 60/28 II. The specification of high-performance glass ensures energy efficiency throughout the building, as the coated glass enables balance due to solar control and thermal insulation properties.
