ISOLAR VACUREX® can be used in the same way as insulating glass in facade construction. It dispenses with the extra cost associated with the much greater installed thickness of standard thermal panels and other measures required to ventilate them. With an insulating panel just 16 mm thick (gap between panes 18 mm), ISOLAR VACUREX® achieves a U-value of 0.3 W/m²K. Even lower U-values can be realised with vacuum insulating sheets that are just a little thicker – conventional thermal panels need to be substantially thicker to achieve these kinds of values. ISOLAR VACUREX® substantially reduces the weight of superstructures due to the use of aluminium sheets as interior and/or exterior elements of the insulating glass unit.
ISOLAR VACUREX® can also be fitted with the extra properties of modern multifunctional glazing, e.g. higher sound insulation of 44 dB or impact-resistant properties. ISOLAR VACUREX® is used for the parapets of facades, especially if low installation thickness is also a requirement.
