Energy saving glass blocks are part of the SEVES Technology Line.
Energy saving glass blocks have a double air chamber inside the glass blocks to ensure high levels of resistance to heat transmission. Patented by Seves, ENERGY SAVING glass blocks effectively reduces the thermal transmittance of the glass block up to 50%. This makes it possible to create architectural façades made entirely of glass blocks. This helps promote the conservation of energy and safeguard the environment.
Not only do energy saving blocks reduce heat loss, they also enhance natural light during daylight hours. Energy saving blocks reduce the need for artificial light, especially during short daylight months. They will also help reduce heating bills due to their superior thermal insulation.
Low emmission glass plate and pressured controlled argon gas are the key to these energy saving blocks. The glass plate is inserted between the glass block halves to interrupt the thermal bridge, while the argon gas is added to reduce the thermal transmission caused by convection.
The result is a classic glass block that can reach a thermal transmittance value of U=1.5 W/m² K.
