Energy efficiency and maximisation of natural light in buildings, especially multi-storey and high rise constructions, is a high priority.

Architectural Glass & Cladding Pty Ltd (AGC) is leading the way in the provision of the latest technology in glass cladding through the supply of products manufactured by Okalux GmbH to the architectural and building industries.

AGC is a cutting edge supplier of bespoke, high performance façade products and has more than 20 years experience in the glass and façade industries.

Since 2010, AGC has partnered with Okalux to present trusted and innovative products to the architectural community, highlighting the advantages of energy efficiency, end user comfort and the use of natural daylight to reduce the running costs of buildings throughout Australia and South East Asia.

“Our goal is to develop optimum solutions to satisfy architects specific demands – with glass,” said Paul Nipperess, Sales and Marketing Manager of AGC. “Okalux has decades of experience in the development and manufacture of high quality insulating glass for international construction projects.”

One of the latest AGC projects which used Okatech by Okalux is the Learning and Teaching Building at Monash University being built by Multiplex. Architect from John Wardle Architects, Barry Hayes, said that Okatech achieves a large reduction in the solar heat gain coefficient on buildings.

“Where a client doesn’t wish to have external solar control, Okatech reduces solar load on buildings which reduces running costs of cooling systems. The personal comfort of occupants is also improved through reduced glare and increased visual light transmission.”

Barry acknowledged that there is a price premium for a quality product like Okatech but the offsetting economic and personal comfort benefits as well as enhanced building appearance make the product highly attractive.

A key to success is doing research on the product and liaising with the supplier before the builder becomes involved. “This ensures a smooth process once construction begins,” Barry said.
