The Ecosense range strikes the perfect balance between outdoors and indoors, function and finesse. Developed to suit the unique climatic conditions of the Indian subcontinent, Ecosense meets the needs of Indian consumers who traditionally require more cooling than heating and want to prevent solar radiation from coming in.

It allows light to pass through a window or face, while radiating, absorbing and reflecting away a large degree of the near-range infrared heat. The existing product ranges include – Ecosense Enhance (Solar Control), Ecosense Exceed (Solar Control Low-E), Ecosense Essence (Low-E) and Ecosense Edge (Solar Control & Thermal Insulation; Can be used for single glazing applications) range, each of them complete in a variety of coloursto suit every customer’s preference and requirement.
