PairPlus incorporates an attachment frame into double glazing so that the unit can be installed to a single glazing sash used in an existing house. Meeting a 3-star or higher level based on the Grading System for Energy Saving Building Materials*1 with all the product variations, this new window boasts high energy saving and non-condensing performances, helping to reduce the impact on power consumption of air-conditioning in both summer and winter.
While construction of new houses is sluggish these days, the market of remodeling houses is expanding, thereby marking a sharp growth in sales of our energy saving products designed for remodeling. In order to respond to such growth and meet the needs of our customers who are highly conscious of conserving the environment, AGC determined to release PairPlus ecoglass designed for remodeling this time.
Features of the PairPlus to be released are as follows:
(1) Since an attachment frame is incorporated into the glass (see the second page of the reference), the unit can be mounted to a single glazing sash installed in an existing house. The simple installation only requires 30 to 60 minutes per window.
(2) With highly insulating argon gas filled in the air layer between two sheets of glass, PairPlus’s insulation properties are about three times as good as a single sheet of glass. It also reduces the impact on power consumption of heaters and the occurrence of condensation in winter.
(3) Using “Sun Balance” ecoglass*2 (Low-E double glazing glass) enables the unit to insulate about twice as effectively as a single sheet of glass and reduce air-conditioning energy consumption in summer.
(4) The product line also includes a slim-type with a low thick glass that ensures effortless operation of screen after installation to a sash.
(5) It achieved a 3-star or higher level based on the Grading System for Energy Saving
Building Materials with all the product variations.
AGC is continuously committed to improving the interior environment of buildings and contribute to global environmental preservation by increasing the efficiency of glass, through development of various new products.
