Glass

Product glazing is a very important aspect that has a direct impact on the overall product thermal conductivity, sound insulation, beauty, and even safety. Our insulating glass units are made entirely of high-quality, certified glass, supplied by manufacturers of glass – Saint-Gobain and Guardian. All glass units are filled with argon gas. Types of insulating glass units:

Heat insulating glass units (Thermo)

A group of 2-glass units including the insulating glass units produced using one heat-reflective glass panel. They are suitable for residential buildings with requirements for heating energy efficiency.

A group of 3-glass units including the insulating glass units which are made using two heat-reflecting glass panels. They are recommended for residential and public buildings, with extra high requirements for heating energy savings, and are particularly suitable for the construction of passive houses. A passive house is an energy-saving house, using 80 per cent less energy for its operation compared to most of the conventional European buildings.

When choosing insulating glass units according to the technical data it is necessary to consider the solar factor of glass (G), which characterises the solar energy entering the house through the glass pane, which is very important when building a passive house, because the desired results cannot be achieved without the use of solar power. Windows facing south have a good solar throughput and the incoming solar energy warms the space, thus reducing heating costs. This shows that the space can be heated not only by the heating system, but also the windows.

Sound insulating glass units (Sound)

Sound is the group of insulating glass units produced from materials that improve the sound insulation function. Factors that improve the sound insulation of the insulating glass units:

  • Glass mass (the greater it is, the lower is the sound conduction);
  • Glass configuration (should be asymmetric by using different thickness glass);
  • Special glass (glass laminated with sound insulating film);
  • Usage of special gas in the insulating glass units;
  • Distance between the panes (the larger the better);
  • Glass frame joining material (Swisspacer, TGI, aluminium).

Solar energy insulating glass units (Sun)

Sun is the group of insulating glass units that are made using glass that reduces solar energy conduction. It is transparent and tinted glass with modern multifunctional coatings in which the transmittance of solar radiation in insulating glass units is low.

It is the latest generation of insulating glass units, and with their abundance of characteristics they are best suitable for residential and public buildings where people live in comfortable conditions.

 

Safe insulating glass units (Safe)

Safe is the group of insulating glass units including the units made using safety glass. Safety glass is laminated, toughened, reinforced glass or fire glass.

These insulating glass units are recommended for buildings or structures with the requirements for protection from injury or burglary.

 

 

Patterned, decorated (painted) glass:

Patterned glass is glass with a patterned surface. Used for external and internal partition glazing. This glass provides partial opacity and light conductivity.

Decorated (painted) glass has the surface covered with a choice of special colour paint, which at high-temperature is moulded into the glass surface.

 


Decorative strips inside insulating glass units:

Provide exclusiveness for a window, available in different colours, easy to clean, as the strips are completely unobstructive.

Top decorative strips with the insert inside the insulating glass units (Duplex)

Look great both viewed from afar, and from a close distance. This decoration gives the impression that the insulating glass unit is divided into several parts, but in fact, the glass pane is continuous. This option is very popular in Scandinavia.

Decorative glass divider strips:

For those who pose exceptional requirements. Each division is real, i.e. each individual visible part of the glass will be a separate insulating glass unit.
