Reflective glass helps a building to achieve a high standard of visual appeal by reflecting a greater amount of heat than normal tinted float glass, bringing brilliant colours and fine details to life.
Advantages of Reflective Glass

It reduces glare from direct sun, which eliminates the need for blinds and other window coverings
The appearance of the reflective glass on your building’s exterior will change as the light source changes from morning to evening
Disadvantages of Reflective Glass
The visible light transmission is less than float glass. So more artificial lighting should be used inside the buildings for adequate lightings
In winters, it can block the essential solar heat. So we may have to spend more amount on room heating during winters
