ThermoCool insulating glazing units
Light comfort is achieved when the quantity, quality and distribution of the light meet the needs of the activity being undertaken.
The ThermoCool architectural frameless glass system is available in a variety of colours and widths and are available with the option of inert gas filling.
The perimeter of the unit is hermetically sealed with a dual-seal system incorporating a polyisobutylene primary seal and a silicone secondary seal.
The seal system can withstand a wide temperature range and is resistant to UV light. The units can therefore be used with confidence for spandrel panels, structural sealant glazing and roof glazing in addition to conventional glazing.
