What’s NEAT Glass and Why Should I Get It?

NEAT Glass, Neat Technology

One of the most under-appreciated and lesser known options is NEAT Glass – an amazing add-on to your windows that can make a huge difference everyday.

What is NEAT Glass?  Less cleaning, better views!  It is an invisible coating on the outside of your windows that makes them ultra-low maintenance and gives better visibility/drying time when it rains.

The coating has a reaction when sunlight and rain combine that breaks down organic material (fingerprints, leaves, bird droppings, etc.) and ‘cleans’ the window.

The science behind NEAT is down to the coating we mentioned – it’s Titanium Dioxide that is applied to the glass in a process known as ‘sputtering’.  This gives the glass a super-smooth surface, at microscopic level, causing it to become hyrdrophillic, meaning the water is repelled from the surface.  Instead of it forming in drops, it sheets off the surface. This then combines with the catalytic coating will helps keep the windows cleaner for longer.

The surface lasts a lifetime and uses nothing more than the weather to help reduce the housework for a homeowner.  Best of all it’s completely invisible, meaning there’s no impediment to visibility.   It is also fully compatible with Low-Emissivity coatings meaning there’s no risk of losing Energy Efficiency.

To get NEAT Glass on your Climate Solutions windows be sure to let your dealer or contractor know that you’d like it!

CS NEAT Glass FAQ’s

CS NEAT Glass FAQ’s:

I just had my windows installed and the NEAT glass isn’t working when it rains?

The NEAT takes up to 2 weeks to become activated – it relies on the UV rays from the sun to charge up the coating.

If I have NEAT Glass does it mean I can’t have Low-E Glass?

Not at all – the NEAT coating is on the outside surface of the window, meaning it can be combined with any glazing option (LoE-272, LoE-366, i89).

It’s not rained for weeks, do I have to scrub my windows?

No – If there’s been no rain all you need to do is spray the windows with some water and that will make the coating work – no scrubbing needed!
