Insulating Glass Details:
- proper for a large area of the world (70-80%) and is to be considered when thermal insulation and soundproofing of a window to be installed is analysed.
- thickness and construction of the glazing will be chosen according to some criteria: thermal insulation, soundproofing, design and visual appearance, wind, or special circumstances stresses.
The glass used by BOMBARDIER in the construction of the thermal insulation glazing pack is of the highest class. Therefore, the products comply with all requirements imposed by the most exigent regulations and technical norms, as well as the European standards regarding the environment protection. The glass of the thermal insulation glazing pack complies with the requirements of the C class of the European standard EN 1096 and is CE marked.
FLOAT glass used by Bombardier in the construction of thermal insulation glazing is a clear glass, made by ”float” procedure, which allows to obtain large plane and parallel surfaces.
By combining the two types of glass, we can obtain the following thermal insulation glazing packs usually used by BOMBARDIER:
• 24 mm thermal insulation pack with 2 glass panes: Float 4 mm – 16 mm spacer – Low e 4 mm;
• 24 mm thermal insulation pack with 2 glass panes: Low e solar 4 mm – 16 mm spacer – Float 4 mm;
• 40 mm thermal insulation pack with 3 glass panes: Low e solar 4 mm – 10 mm spacer – Float 4 mm – 16 mm spacer – Low e.
The advantages of using the thermal insulation glazing are as follows:
- high thermal insulation;
- luminosity and heat recovery by more efficient use of light and solar radiation;
- drastic cut of heating costs by massive prevention of heat losses;
- neutral optical effect from colors point of view, due to unique transparency of the glass;
- increased comfort, uniform heat distribution effect;
- lack of sweat on the interior surface, in normal conditions.
Low E Solar
The glass used by Bombardier in the construction of thermal insulation glazing is a low e solar glass. Its main characteristic is its especially low emission, with Ug coefficient of 1,1w/m2k. Low e solar glass is obtained in vacuumed enclosures by laying on a plane glass a fine and transparent layer of metallic origin materials. This layer ensures a high transmission of light (66%), protection against solar heat (only 42% of solar heat passes thru this glass – for Low E Solar) and long wave IR radiation reflection, specific to the heat resulted from heating.
