What types of glass is good for curtain wall systems?
Single tempered glass panel is the most economic option for curtain wall system. It offers high strength and good looking appearance. But due to tempered glass has a tendency for self explosion for a very little chance(0.3%), Laminated safety glass will be more suggested.
Comparing to tempered glass panels, laminated glass offers higher safety function. Because even tempered glass is broken accidentally, the broken pieces will glue together by the pvb or sgp interlayers in between. If you consider energy saving function, then double insulated glass panels will be suggested.
Double insulated glass panels can have good soundproofing function and good visual light whereas lower heat transfer from outside to the inside. Low U value. If you choose a low e coating glass energy saving will be enhance to U<1.8 W/m2K. This means when you living or working inside, you will feel cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Triple insulated glass panels;
insulated glass panels is suggested for places where weather is extremely cold places
like Russia, Canada, New Zealand, Iceland, Norway, etc. As the U value is lower
than 1 W/m2K. It will prevent almost all the heat transfer whereas the visual
light is still there.
Argon gas filled in between will enhance the thermal function.
Other functions like pattern decoration or frosted treatment will also make your curtain wall system special.
