The Highest Standard in Glass: GEWE-therm® by Scholl Glas
Just as the European Union seeks to cut their CO2 emissions in Europe by 20 percent by 2020, we’re shifting from the era of industrialization and infinite quantities to one of intelligent proportions and design. It’s the perfect era for a company that has spent ten years developing new spins on centuries-old products to help us make the transition seamless. Based in Germany, Scholl Glas is right on the mark with their GEWE-therm® insulated glass products now on the market.
GEWE-therm®. Designed by Scholl Glas.
Energy-Saving, Triple Heat-Insulated Glass
Recently, the German Flat Glass Industry Association stated that this product may be the future standard for glass use in building design throughout Europe due to its long list of helpful characteristics. Before listing how magnificently it helps the average family household or skyscraper’s energy bills, let’s remember a piece of common knowledge: These days, approximately one third of a home’s energy loss is from old window panes and the molding of the frames. With the GEWE-therm® glasses by Scholl Glas, you get triple heat-insulation. It’s not just three panes of glass that make the insulation complete though, this specially manufactured combination of a new, thermally-improved bonding seal along the edges is made possible using a silicon edge bonding seal and a thermoplastic spacer. Said to be more resilient and durable than comparable glazing solutions, the gas proof, weatherproof, and UV proof edges are made to last.
In addition to their transparency and that GEWE-therm® is clearly sensitive to your home’s maintenance, Scholl Glas adds that “the low steam permeability also prevents fogging up” on the inside as well. According to their technical data regarding the various types of their triple heat-insulating glass, “thermally and mechanically induced movement of the insulating glass elements are easily absorbed by the thermoplastic spacer” allowing the layers to expand and contract when the weather outside changes its tone.
The benefits of opting for the GEWE-therm® glass by Scholl Glas are almost as clear as their positive effects – and of view you’ll see while looking out onto our beautiful world, of course.
