SGG PLANITHERM MAX

DESCRIPTION

SGG PLANITHERM MAX is manufactured on SAINTGOBAIN GLASS’ magnetron coaters. A unique combination of multiple layers is applied to high quality SGG PLANILUX clear float glass or SGG DIAMANT extra-clear float glass using a magnetically enhanced cathodic sputtering process under vacuum conditions. The resultant thin and extremely transparent coating reflects very effectively long-wave heat radiation (Low-E) back into the room, whilst maximising transmittance of natural light and short-wave solar radiation.

 

PRODUCT APPLICATION

With a light transmission of 74% a Triple Glazed Unit using SGG PLANITHERM MAX and SGG DIAMANT is brilliant and crystal clear. These new coatings are particularly suitable for passive-houses and low energy-houses.

Residential:

  • Windows
  • Patio doors, French doors
  • other external doors

Commercial:

  • Façades / windows
  • Curtain walling
  • Structural glazing

 

ADVANTAGE

Reduction of the heating cost thanks to high thermal insulation. Less energy spent to heat and, as a result, lower CO2 emissions. Large areas of glazing can be used whilst maximising energy savings. Natural solar gains have benefits for both your comfort and wallet! Conventional heating systems can be reduced and become redundant

  • Transparency: Enjoy natural day-lighting in every room even during cloudy winter days.
  • Comfort: Glazed areas are warmer so it is more comfortable to stand next to windows.
  • Freedom: Such glazing meets the needs of architects for a wide variety of applications requiring neutral aesthetics, transparency and optical clarity.

GUIDELINE

SGG PLANITHERM MAX must always be assembled into an insulated glazing unit, preferably in a triple glazing unit. The coatings are generally placed on face 2 & 5 of the unit. Full guidance on handling and processing SGG PLANITHERM products are detailed in a separate document available from SAINT-GOBAIN GLASS.
