19. Double glazing - composition Thermobel Air Float Float Butyl Spacer Dryer Sealing

20. Double glazing - composition • 2 glazings • Spacer • Gas • Dryer for absorbing humidity • Primary barrier of sealing (humidity) : • Butyl • Secondary barrier of sealing (sealing) : • Polyurethane • Silicone

21. Double glazing Ar Kr Ug = 2,9 W/(m² K) Ug  2,6 W/(m² K)

22. Double glazing

23. Double glazing Ug = 2,9 W/(m² K) Ug  2,0 W/(m² K)

25. Double glazing Outside Inside UV, visible, short IR Long IR > 2500 nm

26. Double glazing Long IR > 2500 nm en=0.89 en =0.89

27. Double glazing • Glass is not transparent to long IR • Glass then absorbs the heat which tries to leave the building • In winter, when it is colder outside than inside, the major part ofthis absorptive energy is re-emitted towards outside

28. Low e double glazing Heat LowE coating Ug = 2,9 W/(m² K) Ug = 1,4 to 2,0 W/(m² K)

29. Low e double glazing Low emissivity coating : n=0.15 to 0.02 Long IR > 2500 nm en =0.89

30. Low e double glazing UV, visible, short IR Long IR > 2500 nm en =0.89

31. Low e double glazing • The low-e coating forces the reemission of the absorbed heat by glass towards the interior • I.e. that it behaves as a mirror which reflects the heat which tries to leave the building • On the other hand, it does not prevent the solar radiation frompenetrating in the building

32. Low e double glazing • Physically : • Glass is opaque to long IR (ET = 0) • From where the result of a heating of glass and reemission • The low-e coating forces the reeimisson towards outside • = AE = 1 – TR – RE = 1 – RE • The lower is emissivity, the higher is the energy reemission towards the interior

33. Low e double glazing Clear glazing : emissivity e = 0,89 Coatings : • pyrolithic low-e: e about 0,15 to 0,30 • Vacuum(magnetron): e about 0,02 à 0,1

34. Low e double glazing e = 0,89 e = 0,15 e = 0,05

35. Double glazing with Warm Edge spacer The metallic spacer (alu, steel, …) is replaced by a plastic spacer (eventually reinforced).

36. Double glazing with Warm Edge spacer Advantages: • Improvement of the U-value of the frame (not the glazing)  economy of energy • The surface temperature is more uniform  better comfort Without Warm Egde With Warm Edge

37. Low e double glazing In short : • Thickness of glass : insignificant • Gas (argon): small improvement • Low emissivity coatings  Big improvement Low e double glazing • Warm-Edge spacer  Improvement of the insulation of the frame
