PHOTOVOLTAIC INSULATED GLASS UNIT
SINGLE AND TWO-CHAMBER INSULATED GLASS UNIT

INSULATED GLASS UNIT (IGU) based glazing units are installed as infills in post and beam façades and skylights due to the required thermal insulating performance. These designs can also be deployed with PV cells installed within the laminated pane to form the first coating on the IGU outer side.

These solutions are usually applied with various types of low-emission coatings that improve the overall IGU thermal insulation performance. A single-chamber IGU is a standard solution boasting U = ~1.1 W/m2K, which means sufficient protection from heat loss to the outside.

Single- and two-chamber PV IGUs are available in different configurations, determined by their functionalities:

  • SUNBLOCK INSULATED GLASS UNIT
    The IGU features a sunblock layer which reduces the exposure to heat from sunlight.

  • SOUNDPROOF INSULATED GLASS UNIT
    This IGU insulates from outdoor noise and its performance is designed according to the nature of the noise.

  • SAFETY INSULATED GLASS UNIT
    The IGU has an improved impact and crash resistance, so that, if cracked, the glass splinters are not propelled out of the panes.

  • ANTI-BURGLARY INSULATED GLASS UNIT
    The laminated glass pane design is adjusted to suit the required anti-burglary class.
