Pilkington Profilit™ one in 2
Pilkington Profilit™ frame series with a profile depth of 83 mm for installation of Pilkington Profilit™ K…/60/7 glass types is now available for double and triple glazing applications.
The basic idea to improve the physical characteristics of the glazing is quite simple: by integration of one or several additional glass pane(s) into a double glazed Pilkington Profilit™ glazing the convection inside the setup is reduced and there are more possibilities of glass combinations with functional coatings.
The flat intermediate pane in general consists of a 6 mm glass e.g. with “Plus 1.7” coating which will be supplied by us. This setup with “Plus 1.7” coatings on positions 3 and 5 generates a Ug-value of 1,3 W/m²K. Furthermore combinations with other Pilkington Profilit™ functional- or design products as intermediate flat glass panel are possible like e.g. Pilkington Profilit™ Amethyst or Pilkington Profilit™ Opal.
Centred and stabilized are the intermediate flat glass panels by the especially designed translucent fixing clips which can easily be applied on the longitudinal edges prior to installation.
The installation of the intermediate panel follows the standard Pilkington Profilit™ installation sequence by lifting the panel into the top frame and lowering it down into the bottom frame.
The combination with other Pilkington Profilit™ system components like e.g. with the gaskets 165 and 166 or with the dilatation joint profiles 810 D and 811 D for the thermally broken frames is easily possible as well.
Furthermore the additional flat glass pane does not have any impact on the structural stability of the Pilkington Profilit™ glazing (however, please take into account that when designing the load carrying substructure the additional dead loads of these glass panes need to be considered).
Depending on the choice of glass- and coating combinations with this system Ug-values down to 1,2 W/m²K and g-values of 0,3 or below can be achieved.
In addition with Pilkington Profilit™ „one in 2“ the excellent noise control characteristics of the system are maintained or even improved as well.
