The article discusses the characteristics and role of the coatings used in construction glazing. Identified selected multifunctional energy saving and self-cleaning coatings used in large surface facade designs by presenting results of their chemical composition and thickness. The light and energy parameters of selected glasses were determined. The obtained spectrophotometric characteristics were compared. An analysis of the influence of the light and energy properties of the investigated coatings on the practical effects of using glazing with emphasis on their multifunctionality.
Keywords: coated glass, construction glazing, spectrophotometric properties, multilayer coatings.
