The double -glazed window is a prefabricated sealed design, which is based on glass and distance strips. This not very difficult technical solution made it possible to significantly increase the thermal insulation properties of windows. And the point here is not only in sealing, which in itself only effectively protects the inner surface of the glass from dust. The bottom line is that air can be pumped out of hermetic space. Distributed air does not transmit heat well, and, accordingly, contributes to better thermal insulation. Sometimes the space between the glasses is filled with an argon or crypton, which is even more effective.
Remote strips look like a hollow profile with perforation or mesh on the side that is facing the chamber. The cavity is filled with a sorbent to absorb moisture. The distance between the glasses is determined by the width of the strips and also affects the heat -insulating qualities of the window. Judging by Windowsseries-5, this factor has now begun to be actively used in the development of leading representatives of the window industry. It is often combined using special energy -saving glasses.
Glass with special properties
Considering non -standard types of glasses, one cannot help but mention stained -glass windows. Technically, they differ little from ordinary glass, but from an aesthetic point of view are completely different. The classic technology for creating stained glasses is not suitable for double -glazed windows, since in the case of a large number of small details to be combined with each other, it is difficult to ensure the necessary tightness and strength. Design-SolutionsStained-Glass uses another, modern technology, while maintaining a holistic surface of glass.
Energy -saving glass
The action of energy -saving glasses is based on their ability to reflect the infrared part of thermal radiation. Such an effect is achieved using a low-emission coating on the glass surface. The energy -saving effect depends on the technology of applying the coating. The most effective I-glass that can leave up to 90% of heat is left outside. In the summer, this helps to maintain the coolness indoors, and in winter it does not allow you to warm the street due to home heat.
Other special glasses
Other glasses with special properties are used depending on the additional requirements that are presented to the windows of specific rooms:
Sound insulation is achieved due to the thickening of the glass, lamination with sound -absorbing compounds or gluing several layers of thin glass.
The reflective windows differ from the others to spray metal oxide to the surface of the glass or by applying another reflective coating. As a result of this procedure, direct sunlight enters the room.
The painted glass absorbs a significant part of the world and, accordingly, heat, protecting the room from excessive heating.
