Saint-Gobain Glass Exprover
The Saint-Gobain Glass range of products, while being relatively energy intensive to produce, can, due to their energy saving properties “pay back” that energy in a matter of a few months once they have been installed in an office or dwelling.
Solar and thermal characteristics have a large influence on energetic performances of façades. Bioclimatic needs of a façade are determined by three elements:
The specification for the solar factor (or Shading Coefficient), the light transmittance and the U-value of the glazing has to be made according to the building design and its localization, the size and orientation of the glazings. Simulation of the energy efficiency enables to determine the optimal glazing while minimizing the sum of the three kinds of energy consumption.
There are two types of glazing:
Saint-Gobain Glass glass range is composed of all this large variety of products achieving various performances. Click on the link and discover our brochure "The Essential" to get more details.
