The innovation award Glassex Best of Show Award 2008 by the international exhibition Glassex / GP&T was just awarded to Interpane Glas Industrie AG for their new triple insulating glass iplus 3CL.

Alan Hartland (export manager at Interpane) accepted the award from James Cower (Group Exhibitions Director – EMAP.) at the trade fair in Birmingham. Due to the combination of excellent heat insulation (Ug-value) and a high total energy transmittance (g-value) iplus 3CL absorbs more energy than it releases to the outside. The results of that are considerable solar energy gains.

The Glassex / GP&T exhibition is the most important event for the door, window, and conservatory industries in the UK, in turn attracting visitors from all over the world. Interpane export manager Alan Hartland had the honour of accepting the Glassex Best of Show Award 2008 for the best new glass product. The intelligently balanced product properties of the triple glazing iplus 3CL convinced the jurors: Due to the optimised heat-mirror coatings, it reaches a superb insulation value of up to 0.5 W/m²K, in addition to an above average total energy transmittance of 55 per cent at a light transmittance of 72 per cent. Solar radiation can thus penetrate the glass easily. The heat, however, cannot escape: The use of heat-mirror coatings in the triple glazing keeps the heat inside the room just like a well-insulated solid brick wall. It also convinces by means of its colour neutrality (Ra, D = 96).

Triple glazing has been successfully used for some years now in new passive and low-energy houses, where high-insulation components are indispensible. A weak spot, however, has always been the low total energy transmittance, which used to limit the solar energy gains. Interpane just solved this problem with their new iplus 3CL.
