What is XIR heat reflecting laminated glass?

Dean’s Autoglass R&D department has designed and developed the ultimate safety glass for use in the heavy machinery industry where the chance of glass breakage and cabin intrusion is a high risk.

Tests have shown XIR Glass is superior in strength and durability over existing laminated glass in the market. The safety of operators using machines in risk areas is enhanced by its strength, as well as reducing operator fatigue due to the reduction in solar heat gain and noise attenuation properties whilst maintaining maximum visibility.

XIR glass provides a safer and more comfortable work environment, leading to greater productivity.

Why Choose XIR Glass?

Safety

XIR glass provides increased resistance to incidental breakage. What it means to you: reduced window replacement costs, less machine downtime, increased on-site safety and overall higher productivity. 

Reduced Downtime

With the added combination of PET and PVB interlayers, incidental breakage (chips and cracks) are reduced, minimising machine downtime for glass replacement and improving machine and worker productivity.

Minimise Operator Fatigue

XIR glass laminated glass was developed to reflect 99% of ultra-violet and 94% infra-red radiation, thereby reducing solar heat gain by over 55%. A cooler and more comfortable work environment with a reduction in thermal skin sensation (TSS) will minimise operator fatigue and increase safety and productivity. 

Noise Attenuation

The acoustic properties of noise dampening PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral Resin) plus heat-reflective PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) interlayer film greatly diminishes the transmission of high-frequency noise by 8 decibels and low-frequency noise by around 5 decibels. The operator benefits from improved acoustic comfort and increased hearing safety levels.

Improved Visual Clarity Day & Night

Unlike conventional tinted films and glass, XIR Glass is transparent and has a low reflectivity so you are never forced, day or night, to sacrifice clarity and light transmission. A safer and more productive workplace is achieved as night time visibility is maximised while internal reflectivity of cabin lights is minimized.

On-site Installation

XIR Glass can be installed on-site to minimise downtime of your machinery. Our approved installers are professionals who guarantee and take pride in their workmanship. The many safety and productivity benefits of having XIR Glass installed cannot be surpassed by competitors.
