How to choose 
insulating glass
 

Prázdny

It is not enough to answer the question whether to choose double glazing or triple glazing. Although we can start here. With different combinations in the composition of insulating glass in double glazing, it is possible to achieve heat transfer UG = 1.0 W/m²·K. Which is an excellent result. However, with the triple glazing composition, this value can be reduced by half - UG = 0.5 W/m²·K. The triple glazing has up to two vacuum gaps filled with argon and air. It significantly increases the level of thermal insulation. Double glazing is an economical solution and its advantage is lower weight and higher solar gain.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Thermal insulation and energy efficiency of glass play a key role in insulating glass. But you may have other special requirements that special glass will meet: sun protection, sound insulation or increased safety.

  Let's take a closer look  

1.

I want insulating glass with good thermal insulation without special glass

 

I will need

double glazing or triple glazing composition with plated glass with thermal insulation properties:

  • Iplus Top 1,1
  • or Iplus Advanced 1,0 with better thermal insulation

 

2.

I'm looking for design coloured glass with good thermal insulation without special glass

I will need

composition with a combination of coloured standard glass and plated glass with thermal insulation properties:

  • Planibel Coloured
  • Iplus Top 1,1
  • or Iplus Advanced 1,0 with better thermal insulation

 

3.

I live in a cold area, I appreciate higher heat gains from sunlight with high thermal insulation of glass

I will need

composition with special plated glass with thermal insulation properties:

  • Eclaz

 

4.

My windows are overexposed to the sun and the interior overheats as a result

I will need

composition with special glass with solar (sun) protection:

  • glass from the SunGuard SUPERNEUTRAL™ collection
  • or Stopsol Clasic or Stopsol Supersilver mirror glass

 

5.

I have an apartment on a busy street, I want to reduce noise that penetrates from the outside environment and disrupts sleep and daily activities

I will need

composition with special glass with PVB film with acoustic properties, which also fulfils the function of safety glass:

  • glass from the LamiGlass® Sound Control or Sound Reduction collection

 

6.

I want the glass of my windows to be safe and not shatter when broken

I will need

composition with tempered one-layer safety glass (ESG) or laminated safety glass (VSG)

 

7.

I'm looking for glass that will protect my home from vandals and thieves, while being safe in case of accidents and burglary

I will need

composition with laminated safety glass (VSG) - special glass with PVB film:

  • glass from the Stratobel collection

 

8.

I need glass for the bathroom through which 'everything' will not be visible, but at the same time it will be aesthetic and let natural light in.

I will need

composition with ornamental - decorative glass

  • ornamental glass in clear and bronze colour
