NET ZERO: THE DESIRED OUTCOME OF A MID-RISE NEW OR RETROFIT
The Janisol series offers state-of-the-art thermal insulation thanks to its low U values, which makes it ideal for buildings that prioritize energy efficiency. In addition to being available in both steel and stainless-steel options, the series also features slim face widths that enhance the visual appeal of any structure. These door and window systems can accommodate both dry and wet glazing, and the door systems come with easy-access thresholds for maximum convenience.
Whether you're working on a public building, a residential construction, or a renovation project, the Janisol range's versatile profile series will meet your most demanding requirements for thermal insulation. In terms of security, mechanical strength, and durability, the Janisol systems are second to none, so you can rest assured that you're investing in a top-quality product that will stand the test of time.
Additionally, for those who want to take energy efficiency to the next level, the Janisol series is also compatible with IQRG heating glass. This innovative glass technology allows for the efficient and intelligent heating of glass surfaces, further reducing the energy required for heating and cooling. With IQRG heating glass, you can enjoy a comfortable environment and lower energy bills at the same time. The Janisol series, combined with IQRG heating glass, represents the pinnacle of energy-efficient and sustainable building design.

IQ RADIANT GLASS®
With the integration of IQRG heating glass, each window unit becomes its own heat zone that can be controlled by the building's AI system. This technology allows for individually controlled heated glass that boasts an impressive 95% efficiency in projecting radiant heat to the interior in areas where it's needed, when it's needed. Unlike traditional heating systems, this method does not rely on heated air to circulate and convect to the ceiling, which means it eliminates the issues of dust, airborne pathogens, and mold. Additionally, this kind of heating system creates a safe and comfortable environment for those suffering from asthma or seasonal airborne allergies since it does not produce damp or condensation in the building. IQRG heating glass has been used in significant testing studies.
QUEBEC HYDRO STUDY
In areas with significant heating requirements, electrically heated windows can provide an innovative solution to counteract the physical discomfort caused by conventional windows. At first glance, the idea of installing heated windows may seem counterproductive from an energy standpoint since the energy consumed by a heated window would appear to be dissipated towards the outdoors. However, a validated model has demonstrated the energy-saving benefits of using heated windows. The model is applicable to both conventional and heated windows and indicates that heated windows actually reduce space heating and cooling loads when compared to standard double-glazed windows. Additionally, they increase thermal comfort in a building's perimeter zone by preventing cold indoor temperatures from occurring near the window. When compared to energy-efficient double pane windows, the results indicate a slight increase in space heating load but a decrease in the need for air conditioning. In terms of energy efficiency, the model suggests that heated windows are more advantageous to install on the north or east (or west) walls of a building in cold climates. This is because the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of a heated window is lower than that of windows normally used in the building sector. Overall, the model confirms that using electrically heated windows can be a practical and effective solution for buildings in cold climates, especially in areas where heating requirements are significant.
Radiant heat is silent. Gone are hot air or steam generating furnaces. Floor space is reclaimed and floor vents and radiators are gone allowing for liberty in furniture placements. Complaints about areas too hot or too cold are gone. Entire mechanical systems are made redundant along with the costs and labor required to maintain them. All of this is possible using off the shelf technology and proven window systems. We are ready to work with you. Let's discuss your project
In 2008, a test conducted at KSU by the International Quality and Research Group (IQRG) studied the effectiveness of different heating systems in a building environment. The study compared the use of radiant glass with forced air using natural gas. The results showed that using radiant glass had numerous benefits, including: - It reduced the interior air movement noise level to zero as radiant heat does not require fans and ductwork to deliver heat. - The radiant delivery system caused no air movement, thus eliminating the transmission mechanism for pollens and air-borne particles. - It reduced heating demand, expressed in BTUs by 44% while doubling the area of thermal comfort. - There was no transmission loss through the ductwork using radiant heated glass. - Condensation, a major cause of mold, did not form on radiant glass. - An ancillary benefit of Radiant Window systems is no condensation forms on the glass. These findings indicate that the use of radiant glass can significantly improve the indoor air quality and reduce the energy demands of a building.
