Façades with a high share of glass are a particularly hotly discussed topic from the point of view of energy efficiency.

Future-oriented solutions must bring differing requirements in terms of energy savings and user comfort into harmony with legal and economic framework conditions.
Standard triple insulating glasses
A high share of glass amount for façades makes special demands on planning and execution from the point of view of the energy efficiency of buildings. The challenges are diverse – as are the possible solutions. With regard to thermal protection, the most important current development is undoubtedly the use of triple insulating glass like SGG CLIMATOP with a thermally separate spacer in corresponding insulating frame systems - with a continuing upward trend. Triple insulating glasses can thereby be combined with additional functions like solar protection and soundproofing.
