Highly transparent white glasses in research greenhouses optimize plant growth - Towards the Sun

Scientists at the Universities of Frankfurt / Main and Bonn are intensely concerned with creating appropriate growth conditions for different plants.

To this end, they make use of so-called research greenhouses, the horizontal glazing of which consists of highly transparent glass which, thanks to its optimal light transmission values, offers ideal conditions for plant growth.  

Both the research greenhouse at the Goethe University in Frankfurt / Main, as well as that of the University of Bonn serve the purpose of creating appropriate conditions for the most varied kinds of flora and fauna - and both of them were planned by the Cologne-based Architektbüro Königs with SGG & nbsp; DIAMANT and SGG & nbsp; ALBARINO, special highly transparent white glasses.

Both research greenhouses, because of their scientific use, were classified as propagating greenhouses. “Thus, there was no need for the use of laminated safety glass as the lower insulating glass pane, in order to achieve the highest possible transmission values , which is crucial for plant growth”, according to the architect Königs.
