The glass is expected to go on sale from October 2012. It is reported that the "Energy-saving glass" is a special glass category in which the glass surface is processed with metal film. By leaving an air layer about 1 cm between the windowpane and the energy-saving glass, out door heat can be prevented from entering the room, which reduces the energy use by air-conditioners and central heating by 30%. In addition, replacing ordinary energy-saving window pane usually requires putting up scaffolding outside the building. However, this inlaid energy-saving glass can be installed on the window frame using a metal frame just from indoor.
Asahi Glass of Japan has successfully developed inlaid “Energy-saving Glass”. Energy conservation can be achieved simply by inlaying the glass on the office windows from inside.
