Presenting Stopray Ultravision 50: AGC’s first ever glass with a triple silver coating

AGC Glass Europe is innovating with its first ever triple silver coating, thus creating a new generation of glass. Launched in October 2011, Stopray Ultravision 50 is a high-selectivity glass offering the perfect combination of natural light, solar control and thermal insulation.

Innovative performance

Stopray Ultravision 50 features a revolutionary, vacuum-applied triple silver coating, delivering superb performance: 

  • Light transmission (49%): meets the most demanding requirements for construction in the tertiary sector;
  • Solar control: provides a very low solar factor (23%), significantly reducing air conditioning costs;
  • Selectivity (ratio of light transmission to solar factor): extremely efficient (above 2) for enhanced comfort;
  • High thermal insulation (1.0 W/ (m2.K)): boosts energy savings;
  • Unparalleled aesthetics: Stopray Ultravision 50 is always produced on AGC's extra-clear Planibel Clearvision to ensure an attractive, neutral appearance.

Stopray Ultravision 50 is the perfect investment. It reduces lighting and air conditioning costs so you benefit from the best of what the sun has to offer!

Stopray Ultravision 50 must be used in double glazing. Different versions are available, delivering multiple properties:
- Stratobel Stopray Ultravision 50, the laminated safety version;
- Stratophone Stopray Ultravision 50, the acoustic laminated safety version for enhanced acoustic insulation.


A ‘green’ certified product
