Thermal-insulating glass

The main functions of a window are to protect the building and its occupants from the influence of external factors (too low or high temperatures, noise, etc.) and the provision of natural illumination. Therefore, one of the most important elements in the quality equation of a window is the glass.

Comfort during the winter

It is possible to erect larger windows without losing the heat inside the house even when outside is cold. Winter comfort can be enhanced with the triple glazing that delivers much better performance than the simple glazing.

These windows are the perfect solution for any type of home, as they combine a high level of energy efficiency with total transparency and a very good light transmission.

Advantages:
• Indoor heat during the winter
• More comfort and well-being

How does it work?
The thermo-insulating glass blocks the already existing warmth of the room, but at the same time allows the natural light and heat from the sun to penetrate through the glass, thus further heating the interior space.

Keeping an optimal temperature during the winter is probably one of the most important factors for comfort.
It can be improved by taking into account the geographical location of the home and the orientation and size of the windows.

Standard thermal insulation
Specific to double windows having a heat transfer coefficient of between 1.3 and 1.0 (W / m2.k).

Advanced thermal insulation
Specific to triple windows having a heat transfer coefficient of between 0.7 and 0.5 (W / m2.k).

Comfort during the summer

The solar heat in the summer is reduced due to the performance windows, so the homes do not overheat and do not require the use of excess air conditioning.
Summer comfort is defined as the number of hours the indoor temperature is more comfortable than the outside temperature.

Advantages:
• Comfortable interior
• Increased sun protection
• Optimizing energy consumption

How does it work?
The glass reflects about 2/3 of the solar heat, but at the same time allows the sunlight to penetrate through the glass so that the interior of the house is naturally lightened.
Summer comfort can also be improved by taking into account the geographical location of the home, as well as the size and orientation of the windows.

Standard Solar Control
Specific to windows with a solar factor (g) ranging from 0.42 to 0.36.

Advanced Solar Control
Specific to windows with a solar factor (g) ≤ 0,35.

Transparency

With the help of larger windows, you can enjoy the natural light of the sun, as well as the feeling of an open space, while using less artificial light during the day.
Natural light is an essential part of human well-being. As a transparent environment, the glass allows natural light to penetrate into homes and provide openness to the outside.

Advantages:
• Reducing the use of artificial light
• Positive impact on health
• Improves sleep

How does it work?
The high transparency of the glass and the size of the window allow for better illumination of the interior space.
The geographic positioning of the house as well as the size and orientation of the windows must be taken into account. This way, daytime comfort will improve considerably.

Transparency
Specific to windows with a light transmission ≥ 64%.

Energy savings

High-performance glasses can significantly improve the energy consumption and help reduce costs by over 30% compared to the simple glass.

Advantages:
• Optimizing and reducing energy consumption
• Improving energy efficiency

How does it work?
The tight system of the window keeps the warmth inside and at the same time allows the natural sunlight to warm the interior of the house during the winter. Thanks to high-performance windows, low interior heating is required.
The triple glass offers the best solution for reducing billing costs.
This solution can be improved by taking into account both the geographic position of a house and the orientation and size of the windows.

Standard Energy Savings
Specific to double glazing, with cost savings over 30%.

Advanced Energy Savings
Specific to triple glazing, with cost savings over 40%.

Safety

It represents the protection against the risk of serious accidents caused by possible breaks of the glass.
Safety can be provided by laminated glass.

Advantages:
• Reducing the risk of injury in case of glass breakage
• The feeling of safety at home

How does it work?
Safety laminated glass consists of a plastic film (PVB) interposed between two glass panels. If the glass breaks, the shards remain attached to the film.
The choice of the glass should be made according to the environment of the home and the safety expectations.

Safety
Specific to laminated glass windows consisting of two 3 or 4 mm glass sheets and a single PVB film.

Security

Security prevents possible burglary and discourages thieves in most cases.
Security can be provided by laminated glass windows.

Advantages:
• Reducing the risk of injury in case of glass breakage
• Protection against theft and vandalism
• The feeling of safety at home

How does it work?
Security laminated glass consists of two plastic films (PVB) interposed between two glass panels. This type of glass protects people and property in case of aggression.
The choice of the glass should be made according to the environment of the home and the safety and security expectations.

Security
Specific to laminated glass windows consisting of two 4 mm glass sheets and two PVB films.
