Insulating glass

Thermal insulation

With single glazing or older insulating glazing, a lot of heat is lost through the window. Thanks to sophisticated technologies, modern thermal insulation glass reduces heat losses drastically and keeps the warmth from the heating system where it belongs: in the room. The advantages? Considerably lower heating costs, a contribution towards protecting our environment, and a palpable increase in comfort, particularly near the window. And glass has one big advantage over all other building materials: free-of-charge energy gains thanks to solar inputs reduce the energy requirement.

The German government supports builders and owners who modernize their buildings to become energy-efficient, reduce the CO2 output and save energy. The financial aspects are handled by the German development bank KfW, which supports these measures with a funding program for energy-efficient building and modernization, offering low-interest loans or grants to finance them.

Safety Glass

Injury protection

Safety insulating glass is distinguished by increased fracture strength and protection from injury in the event of a glass fracture. Toughened safety glass can withstand unusually high stresses, and in the event of fracture it splits into small, blunt-edged fragments. Laminated safety glass incorporates extremely tear-resistant films that hold together the splinters and shards in the event of fracture. This glass is used wherever high standards for safety are required, for example in glass canopies, overhead glazing or fall-protection glazing.

Structural use of glass

Facades

Glass facades dominate the face of the modern city. It makes even massive buildings look light, transparent and elegant. Modern glass technology allows glass sheets to be fixed at a few points, so that the building can be covered with a continuous “glass skin”. Glass in a wide range of tints ensures the right tone.
