FEATURES & BENEFITS:
> Dual seal system with PIB primary, polysulphide or silicone secondary seals;
> Substantially reduced perimeter condensation;
> Lower thermal conductivity than aluminium spacer units (typical U-Value improvement of 0.2 W/m2k);
> Excellent UV resistance;
> Spacer appearance is a smooth matte dark grey finish;
> Spacer range 9/12/16/18/20/22mm;
> Secondary seal default is Polysulphide. Specify Silicone seal if edges of IGU are exposed.
ENERGY & CLIMATE
For improved energy efficiency with greater solar and thermal control, with High performance Low-E coating. Alternatively, laminated glass panels with solar control interlayers can also be incorporated into units. The unique properties of laminated glass also block out up to 99% of harmful UV light.
Reducing noise is better achieved through Acoustic laminated glass panels when compared to ordinary single
SAFETY & SECURITY
IGU units can be made with either Toughened or Laminated safety glass. Two panels of glass also make it harder to breach the window or door opening compared to ordinary single glass, but for greater security,
build laminated panels with extra thick 1.52mm PVB or structural interlayers such as SentryGlas®Plus. All
IGU units are supplied as standard
STRUCTURAL & STRENGTH
The air space in IGU’s in conjunction with two panels of glass act as a ‘shock absorber’ or ‘spring’ allowing higher
wind loads to be applied compared to equivalent single glass thickness.
