The largest surface of every window is made of glass. Thermopane is a construction of two or more glazings. Since the glass makes 80% of the surface of the entire window (for larger window sizes, for example, the standard dimensions of double-winged windows), it has the greatest impact on its insulating properties. It is coated with a butyl tape that makes the first thermal barrier and prevents air and dust penetration inside the glass. This hermetically sealed interspace can be filled with dry air or argon gas. Secondary thermal barrier between the inner and outer sides of the built-in glass is hot melt. So there is no way to “fog” between the two panes of glass.
The glass is GUARDIAN, of renowned American company with the nearest representative office in Hungary. Glazings have all the accompanying certificates and warranties.
Glazings have three very important properties, and these are:
|Sound volume||Noise level in the room|
|3 dB||the noise can hardly be heard|
|10 dB||the noise is reduced by 50%|
|20 dB||the noise is reduced by 75%|
|30 dB||the noise is reduced by 87.5%|
|40 dB||the noise is reduced by 94.25%|
The basic division of the glass is into double-glazed and triple-glazed glass (thickness from 24 mm - 44 mm). In combination with argon and low-emissivity (low-E) glass or ClimaGuardSolar, different properties of the glass are achieved.
In addition to that there are several types of glass such as:
It is a thermal insulating glass that reduces heat loss by 60% compared to conventional double-glazed glass. On the inside of the glass there is a soft coating of a thin layer of metal oxides whose role is to reflect the heat back to the direction of its source. This is particularly noticeable in winter because it keeps the temperature in the room. The layer is facing the inside of the glass so it could not be be damaged. While the effect in the summertime is such that heat does not penetrate into the room.
The amount of energy that is transmitted through the glass is measured by the coefficient “U” in (W / m2K).
With a standard thermal packet 4+16+4 K = 2.7, and with one LOW-E glass K = 1.1 the heat transfer coefficient is 2.7 W/m2K, the solar factor is 20% LT, and the sound insulation is 35 dB.
ClimaGuard Solar is a glass with the heat transfer coefficient of 1.1 W / m2K, light transmittance of 58% LT, and sound insulation of 39 dB.
The main property of this glass is an incredible thermal insulation. It is also called the glass for “4 seasons”.
If we compare it with traditional IZO glass, it will save a half of the heating costs.
Common thermopane glass admits about 80% of solar energy into the interior, which is often unbearable. ClimaGuard Solar is a low-emissivity glass that significantly reduces the transmittance of solar heat because it admits only 42% of the total solar energy. It is located on the inner surface of the glass, or on the first glass on the outside. Low heat transmittance causes low temperature inside the glass, which consequently ensures comfort in the room, allows incredible savings when using air conditioners.
ClimaGuard Premium is a glass with the heat transfer coefficient of 1.1 W / m2K, light transmittance of 61% LT, and sound insulation of 45 dB.
There is also a variant of ClimaGuard Premium glass that represents a revolution in this field.
In addition to all characteristics in terms of thermal insulation, it has an unusually high solar factor of 63%. It therefore ensures excellent use of daylight.
It is a low-emissivity glass that is located on the inner surface of the glass, that is, the first glass on the inner side.
The combination of these 3 glasses is for the real experts and energy efficiency lovers.
This combination of glass reduces noise up to 45dB. The solar coefficient is 61% which means that only 39% of the solar heat enters the interior of the room. The permeability of daylight is 60%. The heat transfer coefficient is 0.6-0.9 W / m2K, therefore the heating bills are lower up to five times.
The glass can be decorated with golden strips, white narrow and wide strips. The decoration is placed inside the glass surface so it will not get dirty due to external influences. In this way you can give your facade a personal touch.
