CUIN is an innovative product that incorporates suspended film within insulating glass units, resulting in the application of one of the most advanced technologies in the glazing industry today; a product that is both energy efficient and revolutionary. CUIN boasts ultra-low U-values in a thin and light solution, making it the eco-friendly, high performance selection over traditional glazing.
CUIN’s innovative design results in a thinner and lighter construction compared to traditional triple glazing, as well as being superior in performance. With U-values as low as 0.4 W/m2K in a double IGU, and 0.2 W/m2K in a triple IGU, without increasing the glazing thickness or weight, this makes CUIN the eco-friendly, high performance choice over traditional glazing.
Noise is quite simply unwanted sound, with the sources commonly being from everyday parts of our modern life, whether it is rail, road or air noise. The key to acoustic insulation in glazing is to reduce noise inside the building to an acceptable level without compromising on natural light and the view out. With carefully specified glazing with acoustic laminated glass, very high levels of acoustic insulation can be achieved.
It’s never been more important to protect human life as we go about our day to day business, and with glass being utilised all aspects of our buildings the need for safe glazing is of upmost importance. Current building regulations highlights critical areas where people are likely to come in close proximity with glazing. To meet legislation the critical areas the glass is required to break ‘safely’ or provide sufficient robustness to minimise injury in the event of accidental human impact. safe breakage characteristics are prevalent in laminated safety glass and thermally toughened glass.
With ever tightening of building regulations, as well as increasing environmental awareness, more and more emphasis is placed on thermal performance of all types of residential, commercial and public buildings. Invisible metallic coatings are encapsulated inside insulating glass units, which reflect heat back into the building, whilst still benefiting from high levels passive solar gain.
Laminated glass with Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) interlayer provides safety and security combined, reducing injury from human impact by its break safe characteristics and resistance from deliberate manual attack. In the event of laminated glass breaking, the glass pieces remain bonded to the PVB interlayer negating major injury and keeping its integrity preventing penetration. Laminated glass can also exhibit acoustic, decorative, bullet or blast resistant properties.
NUCLR by Crystal Units is our innovative new heated glass solution. NUCLR utilises the warming power of infrared radiation; delivering a sleek, stylish, and efficient heating system. It not only adds a unique touch to a building, but also reduces the use of polluting fossil fuels when compared to traditional heating methods.
NUCLR is the high end finish that your project needs. Incorporating heating into glass not only eradicates the need for conventional heating systems, but also eliminates cold spots and condensation build-up. This can solve design challenges in situations anywhere from high-end dwellings to Spa’s and swimming pools. NUCLR and all required connections can be fully implemented into a wide range of window and door systems, whilst directly utilising the 230V mains power, meaning minimal additional design work is required. Using electricity as a heating source is a more eco-friendly option than standard gas heating, due mainly to the UK’s decreased reliance on fossil fuels.
NUCLR is a flexible product that can be best implemented in a wide variety of applications:
