Vacuum glass VS insulated glass
Vacuum glass is becoming the new trend of energy efficient glass,with the development of new technology,vacuum glass costs is decrease these years and becoming more and more popular.
Energy conservation and environment protection
◆Super light—reduce building load-bearing and decrease building cost.
◆Super thin—Insulated glass Min configuration is 3-6-3,total 12mm,for some passive buildings,triple glazing is required with thickness between 42-50mm,that’s really thick and high costs.
Vacuum glass Min thickness is only 6mm,reduce the use of frame materials,especially aluminium profiles/PVC profiles and increase light transmittance.
which leaves more creative space for architect,meanwhile becoming a perfect replacement for old window renovation.
◆Super energy efficient- Normal insulated glass with single silver low-E,double silver low-E and triple silver low-E,the U value are 1.8,1.65,1.6,the thermal insulation effect is achieved by the air between glass.
While vacuum glass,there’s no air between glass,even without any low-E coating,the vacuum glass U value can achieve 0.8-1,if applied with double silver low-e coating,the U value can decrease to 0.5 or even less.
◆Environment protection-decrease the coal consumption for power generation applied in refrigeration and heating, reduce the discharge of harmful gas, such as CO2 and decrease environmental pollution! It has already become an optimum new building material which can meet low-carbon building requirements.
◆Noise control:Vacuum glass offers better sound accoustic glass than traditional insulated glass. especially on low-mid frequency;
◆Wind resistance is 2 times greater than that of Insulation glass which is more durable, stable and reliable.
◆It is free from burst in plateau low pressure area as Insulated glass.
