Electrically heated glass is a high energy-saving glazing material. Its operation is based on the principle of heat emission when electric current is passing through low-emission glass coating.
Electrically heated glass can be used for multiple glazed units, as part of triplex glass structures and as part of safety glazing systems.
Electrically heated multiple glazed units consist of two or three sheets of glass. At least one of glass sheets is made of low-emission and energy-saving K — glass. Several electrodes are installed inside a glass sheet and connected to a source of electric current.
While in operation glass surface is heated and the effect of «cold box» is eliminating. That prevents condensation formation, frost and snow are removed from the surface, heat losses are compensated and thus atmosphere of comfort is created in the room.
Electrically heated glass is commonly used in cottages, office buildings, stained glass window systems, atriums, translucent roofs, skylights, canopies, etc. This kind of glazing is also used to prevent glass fogging and icing in the areas with high humidity levels such as swimming pools, saunas, baths and other similar premises.
Electrically heated multiple glazed units:
- Heated multiple glazed unit equalizes the temperature difference between the inner glass temperature and the room temperature. As a result air circulation near the window is changing. That allows creating the most comfortable conditions in premises with minimal heating level.
- Heated multiple glazed unit prevents condensation formation on the translucent structures, mold and mildew formation on any glass surfaces, allows to maintain stable indoor climate.
- Heated multiple glazed unit as part of translucent roof makes possible to remove snow and ice off the roof surface, significantly reduces building structures metal consumption and increases their safety. All of that let the consumer to keep the most natural light illumination.
- Heated multiple glazed unit is a good choice for industrial buildings glazing. In this case temperature, humidity and absence of convection air flows are an integral part of procedure specifications.
- The above mentioned technical solutions allow preventing ice formation on the glass surface and ensuring the efficiency of drainage in the winter time.
