How can the glass and glazing industry work toward Bettering the Built Environment?
Consuming nearly 1/3rd of the world’s energy and producing nearly 40% of global CO2 greenhouse gas, the energy efficiency of buildings must improve exponentially. Imagine the glazing system on a commercial building carrying a similar thermal performance as the fiberglass insulated wall adjacent. With LuxWall Net Zero Glass technology, delivering a glass facade with at least R-12 is the baseline of achievable insulation performance. Applications include retrofit of existing single pane glazing systems, double pane unit retrofits or in new construction,
LuxWall Net Zero Glass technology is significantly reducing energy demand of building systems for heating, ventilating and air conditioning.
8G has partnered with LuxWall to bring the first, domestically produced, vacuum insulated glass to the US market.
How can the glass façade of a building perform more efficiently and create a positive environmental impact?
Evolving energy codes nation-wide drive the need to construct efficiently while reducing the long-term carbon footprint of new buildings. ClearVue’s Clear Solar Glass Energy is a low maintenance glazing solution that provides power while potentially reaching carbon payback in less than 10 years. By optimizing the performance of the glass and harnessing the energy of daylight, ClearVue can power a significant portion of a building’s energy needs from its glazing system. Creating a reduced reliance on grid power and showcasing a commitment to renewable energy is the way to build smarter – for today and into tomorrow.
