Heated Glass - E-GLAS
E-GLAS technology uses heated, transparent double or triple glazing to provide insulation against external cold, and simultaneously eliminate the ‘cold wall’ effect and the side-effects of condensation
Particularly well suited to cold and/or damp environments (like bathrooms, swimming pools, etc.), E-GLAS technology uses heated, transparent double or triple glazing to provide insulation against external cold, and simultaneously eliminate the ‘cold wall’ effect as well as the side-effects of condensation.
Using this technology, glazed roofs gain an ‘automatic snow melting’ function. A laminated version is also available for internal applications.
E-GLAS is an active insulating glazing, which means it converts electrical power into heat. The heating surface of the double or triple glazing is low-emissivity glass: when stimulated by electrodes, the thin oxide coating over the inner face on the side of the vacuum (filled with Argon) radiates heat towards the opposite face.
Depending on its composition, it can heat outward or inward, making it possible to melt snow, prevent condensation, and be a source of heat itself. The power of E-GLAS is controlled by different electrical features like thermostats or snow-detectors.
The laminated version is often used for interior applications, such as glass partitions that heat on both sides and gives comfort or replaces the main heating system.
