PLEASE NOTE SGG COOL-LITE SKN 174 / 174 II has now been superceded by SGG COOL-LITE SKN 176 / 176 II which offers enhanced solar control performance and aesthetics.

Product link:

SGG COOL-LITE SKN 174 / 174 II is a solar control glass with high light transmittance and excellent solar factor.

This coating has the highest light transmittance of the SGG COOL-LITE SKN range but also reduces solar heat transmittance by up to 59%. The high amount of light it lets through makes it the most neutral in appearance within the range.

The selectivity of the product allows architects and specifiers to utilise large areas of glazing and create bright, airy spaces while keeping the solar heat to manageable levels.

Due to the unique properties of the coating, it is suitable for applications which require annealed as well as toughened or heat-strengthened glass.



Ideal for offices, hotels, restaurants, schools, hospitals and many other commercial buildings.

SGG COOL-LITE SKN can be installed in many glazing applications:

  •  Curtain walling
  •  Exterior structural sealant glazing
  •  Exterior bolted glass assemblies
  •  Double-skin applications
  •  Cladding of external walls
  •  Overhead and atria glazing


For further information on the processed product variations, such as laminating, curving and toughening please look at the Processing of SGG COOL-LITE SKN/SKN II page.
