For over 40 years OKALUX has readily turned into one of the international market leaders for functional, innovative and design- oriented production of insulating glass.
|Bird Protection Glass|
ORNILUX has been tested in cooperation with the American Bird Conservancy and the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Germany, resulting in a significant reduction of bird strikes compared to standard double-glazing.As a multi-functional glass, ORNILUX is the only clear glass solution to bird collisions, and is available as laminated glass or a double-glazed insulated unit with a low-E or solar control coating, offering energy efficiency and bird strike protection. ORNILUX offers a unique and innovative bird-friendly glazing solution-maintaining the aesthetic transparency of glass while creating visual markers alerting birds to a barrier. First introduced in Europe in 2006, ORNILUX is now available in North America.
|Maintain a uniform appearance with different VLT's|
Solar control tailored to suit thermal performance needs without compromising a visually compatible and color matched facade for maximum flexibility in the planning and execution of projects.Example: Pair different solar control glass coatings in Nor th-/South-Facade:
• use A70 and achieve 70% light transmission on the North-Facade for maximum light.
• use A50 and achieve 50% light transmission on the South-Facade to reduce solar radiation.
Pair different solar control glass coatings in Upper-/Lower Levels:
• use A70 and achieve 70% light transmission on lower levels that are shaded by neighboring buildings.
• use A60 and achieve 60% light transmission on upper levels that are exposed to direct sunlight.
|Eliminate Anisotropy Distortions within Tempered Glass|
Tempered glass anisotropy is a dreaded phenomenon which may look very unpleasant on a glazed facade. Discolorations in the form of ribbons, rings, stripes and leopard spots can have a very significant impact on the visual appearance of a building, mostly in clear sky conditions: New manufacturing technologies eliminates these distortions, creating the complete opposite situation - no distortion ISOTROPIC Glass
|On-demand & Transition Glass|
With built-in intelligence, View Dynamic GlassTM automatically transitions between clear and variable tint, providing control over the amount of light and heat entering a building. In all conditions, View GlassTM remains transparent, keeping you connected to the outside world. It’s a simple idea. But one that will revolutionize the way we build.
|Oversized Large & Curved Glass|
