Thermobel – Insulating double and triple glazing
Thermobel is the insulating glazing product from AGC. Our range includes insulating double and triple glazing. The composition of the resulting insulating glazing can be designed to meet complex requirements and thus be a real multifunctional construction element.
Insulating double and triple glazing
Insulating double and triple glazing is used to ensure thermal insulation. Thanks to the use of high-quality and functional coatings, this glazing offers optimal thermal comfort all year round. In winter, such glazing does not let the cold inside and you save money on heating. In summer, on the other hand, it does not let heat in and you save energy costs for air conditioning.
Which parameters are important?
Our attention should not be focused only on heat loss. It is also necessary to look at the heat gains. We must therefore examine the overall energy balance of the building.
- Thermal transmittance of the glazing Ug
- Total solar energy transmission factor = solar factor g or SF
- Light transmittance τv, = LT
- Light reflection ρv, = LR
What values should we expect from glazing?
In residential buildings, we should require the following values from our glazing. We recommend that you request the following parameters from your window supplier.
- Thermal insulation of glazing Ug at a level of 0.5 to 0.6 W/m2.K
- Solar factor SF = at least 50%
- Light transmittance LT = at least 70%
- Safety glazing and improved acoustics
Infinite number of functions for insulating glass
When designing insulating glazing, one must first determine what properties the final product should fulfil. Insulating triple glazing can have functions such as solar control, safety protection, acoustic comfort, fire protection or it can be a tasteful design element for the building facade.
Thermobel – the model environmentally friendly insulating glazing! Your glazing should suit you fully, therefore, choose it carefully, considering your specific requirements. We will guide you through our extensive range of products and help you find the solution that best suits your needs, whether your project is a new construction or a modernization.
Cradle to Cradle – Environmental friendliness
Thermobel products have been awarded the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze certificate. By actively using Cradle to Cradle-certified products, architects, designers and planners obtain so-called LEED credits. Moreover, in the LEED and BREEAM systems, you can receive points under three main themes: Natural lighting, thermal comfort and energy efficiency.
