Anti-reflective glass

Anti-reflective glass is also known as non-reflective glass. Anti-reflective glass is ideal for facades, display cases, storefronts, control or surveillance rooms, information displays, video walls, display cases, picture glass in museums, stadium luxury boxes, and more.

What is Anti-reflective Glass

See more clearly with minimal reflections

The most basic goal of glass is the ability to see through it, but often this poses a paradox. While the glass itself is crystal clear, its surroundings can provide obstacles to the view in the form of glare and reflection. A challenge for architects is to maximize visibility while minimizing reflection.

Anti-reflective glass is an advanced coated glass with reflection control properties that reduce the reflection of light on the surface of the glass. It increases the light transmission and brightness, offering better contrast definition for applications where reflections can be an issue, including retail storefronts, car showrooms, zoos, sports facilities, viewing areas, or special applications such as museum displays and digital signage.

When you use innovative AJJ anti-reflective glass, virtually invisible to the human eye, you open up a whole world of viewing possibilities. Invisible storefronts and lobby facades give passers-by outside a stunning glimpse of the product displays and amenities inside. Glass museum display cases disappear, allowing art to become the focal point. AJJ's optical thin-film coating with less than 0.5% reflectance makes the glass almost invisible to the viewer, limiting glare and disrupting reflections.

What are the benefits of anti-reflective glass

Key Features
Anti-reflective glass provides maximum visibility while minimizing light reflection and glare. The result is crystal-clear views.

High transparency

Our latest anti-reflective glass provides the highest transparency of any of our products to date. It has a light transmission above 98% and a color rendering index (CRI) of 99, which means that the colors you see through the glass are almost exactly those you see without glass (perfectly true colors would have a CRI of 100). This is particularly interesting for retail storefronts and museums where the objects displayed should be presented at their very best.

Unobstructed views

The anti-reflective coating applied onto the glass enables the light reflection of the glass to be reduced to 0.5% (in the double-sided version, where the coating is applied on both surfaces of the glass), compared to around 8% for standard uncoated float glass. Anti-reflective glass is ideal for applications where the view through the glass is the experience, such as a rooftop viewing area, a football stadium, or a zoo where the glass can offer a truer, more immersive experience.

Anti-reflective Glass Technical Specifications

Applications, Production Capacity & Considerations

  • AJJ® Anti-reflective glass offers no-glare, no-reflection, full views up to an angle of 45° – a technically superior sputter coating offers the greatest light transmission and hardest coating possible, reducing reflection to less than 0.5% with no color shift (high CRI).
  • Ideal for facades, display cases, storefronts, control or surveillance rooms, information displays, video walls, display cases, picture glass in museums, stadium luxury boxes, and more.
  • AJJ®Anti-reflective glass is available in single-sided (for laminated glass or combined with functional coatings) or double-sided (for near total invisibility.)
  • Anti-reflective glass can be combined in an Insulating Glass Unit (IGU) with thermal insulation or solar control glass to further improve the energy efficiency of the glazing and help keep temperatures comfortable for the building’s occupants all year round.

The applications for anti-reflective glass are wide-ranging. From architectural facades to shop storefronts, car showrooms, picture frames, and museum showcases, in fact, any application where reflection control is desirable, non-reflective glass can be considered.


Retail outlets such as high-end fashion and jewelry stores, furniture and car showrooms, as well as restaurants and hotel lobbies, all share a common need: to give customers and passers-by a clear, unobstructed view of displayed products and inside spaces. This means the glass should offer the lowest possible reflection and glare combined with the highest transparency. In the daylight, storefront glass can act like a mirror, with customers struggling to see clearly the displayed products.

Museum showcases

In museums, glass displays are used to protect precious artifacts from damage or distress, while presenting them in the best possible light. But sometimes the glass itself can act as an obstruction to the view. Unwanted glare, reflections, or reduced lighting levels prevent visitors from having a crystal-clear view and seeing the object in its original color. Using anti-reflective glass to reduce unwanted glare and reflection enables closer, more intimate interaction with the displayed object. 

Picture frames

Choosing the right glass for picture frames is essential. Select the right glass and you can reduce glare and reflect light away from the glass, maintaining the integrity of the picture, photograph, or painting. 

Digital signage

Choosing the right glass for interior and exterior digital signage applications such as Public Information Displays, Digital Signage, traffic displays, retail signs, embedded devices, and biomedical displays is crucial. The right glass can provide displays with optimal aesthetic features combined with performance attributes such as laminated, UV protection, and EMI (ElectroMagnetic Interference) shielding. 

AJJ® anti-reflective glass is available in thicknesses from 3 to 19 mm. It is available on low-iron glass, for maximum transparency and color neutrality. The anti-reflective coating can be applied on one side or both surfaces of the glass for improved anti-reflective performance. AJJ® anti-reflective glass can be heat-treated for safety applications. It is also available on laminated glass, with a new PVB interlayer that reduces the yellowish tint.

America Standards:

  • ANSI Z97.1 – Safety glazing materials used in buildings. This standard provides guidelines for safety glazing materials in residential and commercial applications, including tempered glass. It specifies the performance criteria for impact resistance and requires glass to meet certain fragmentation requirements.
  • ASTM C1036 – Flat Glass.
  • ASTM – C1048 – Heat-treated flat glass. This standard sets the minimum requirements for tempered flat glass. It covers glass thickness, surface compression, and fragmentation characteristics.
  • CAN/CGSB 12.1 – Safety or laminated glass,
  • CPSC 16 CFR- 1201 – The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standard in the United States sets the requirements for architectural glazing materials, including tempered glass. It tests the glass for impact resistance and establishes different categories based on the glass thickness and the drop height required to break it.

Australian Standards:

Architectural – 4mm to 12mm Grade ‘A’ safety glass manufactured to AS/NZS 2208-1996 Safety glazing materials in buildings and 15mm to 19mm Toughened glass.

The Australian/New Zealand standard for safety glazing materials assesses the impact resistance of tempered glass. It classifies glass based on the drop height required to break it and provides guidelines for its use in different applications.
