Thermal insulation glass from Wernberg for Munich's landmark

The Hypo high-rise in Munich is supposed to heat up. At least in winter. in summer, though, it shall provide a comfortable and cool working environment.

Not an easy task for the renovators of the striking office building near Arabellapark.  Yet, a feasible one - at least with know-how and glass by FLACHGLAS Wernberg.

Already in 2011 HypoVereinsbank announced extensive renovation measures in the office building. Though only 30 years old, the building had been technically outdated. The building's ventilation, for example, was solely provided for by the air conditioning system. Not a single window in the single-skin facade could be opened. The post-renovation goals are highly ambitious, though. After completion of the renovation works, the HVB-Tower is supposed to be certified as a "green building" according to the international LEED standards.

In this 250-million-Euro project it is FLACHGLAS Wernberg that produces the thermal insulation glazing. Since mid-2013 triple-pane insulation glass units have been sent off from our production lined to Bavaria's capital.

As the HVB-Tower became a listed building in 2006, all renovation measures have to be in line with particularly high an demanding standards. The insulation glazing has to be produced with rounded corners, for example, to be able to maintain the building's original appearance. Hence, our comprehensive experience with the TPS edge seal system played an important role in awarding this contract to FLACHGLAS Wernberg. The TPS system enables the production of insulation glazing systems with a so-called "warm edge". This kind of glazing system offers highly efficient insulation properties. Furthermore, it is particularly suitable when it comes to special shapes an tight engineering tolerances. The thermoplastic spacer is fixed directly on the glass of the unit, no cutting of profiles (made of aluminium, steel, stainless steel or plastics) is necessary.

In summer 2014 approximately 2,000 sqm of thermal insulation glass wil cover the facade of Munich's landmark. By the way: Most of the building's new windows can be opened.
