High Performance Heating Glass

As the demand for luxury primary or secondary homes and lodges in areas with harsh winters increases, homeowners are seeking advanced solutions to enhance comfort and efficiency. One such revolutionary innovation is IQ Radiant Glass, which offers unparalleled benefits, including thermal comfort, energy efficiency, and advanced smart home integration.

The Advantage of Electrically Heated Windows

In cold climates, traditional windows often become the weakest link in maintaining indoor comfort. Cold drafts, frosty surfaces, and condensation issues are common challenges that compromise the living experience. IQ Radiant Glass addresses these issues by integrating electrically heated windows, transforming the way we experience comfort and energy efficiency.

Key Benefits:

  1. Enhanced Comfort Near Windows: Electrically heated windows maintain a warm indoor surface temperature, eliminating the cold drafts and chilly sensations typically caused by traditional windows. This ensures a consistently comfortable environment throughout the winter months.

  2. No Condensation or Frost: The heated glass prevents the accumulation of condensation and frost, which are common problems in cold climates. This not only improves visibility but also protects the window frames and surrounding structures from moisture damage.

  3. Noiseless and Space-Saving Heating: Unlike conventional perimeter heating systems, such as baseboards or radiators, heated windows provide silent and unobtrusive warmth. This frees up valuable interior space and maintains a clean, aesthetic look.

  4. Energy Efficiency: Despite the initial perception that electrically heated windows might increase energy consumption, studies show that they can actually reduce the overall energy needs of a building. Compared to standard double-glazed windows, IQ Radiant Glass reduces space heating and cooling loads, and even when compared to energy-efficient double-pane windows, it offers significant benefits in air conditioning needs.

  5. Optimal Placement for Energy Savings: In cold climates, the energy advantages of heated windows are most pronounced when installed on the north, east, and west walls of a building. This strategic placement maximizes energy efficiency by leveraging the lower solar heat gain coefficient of heated windows compared to conventional glazing.

  6. IQ Radiant Glass reduces heat gain in summer: Through its advanced glass coatings and insulation techniques. These features effectively block excessive solar heat from entering the building, thereby minimizing the need for air conditioning and lowering overall energy costs. This ensures a comfortable indoor environment even on the hottest days, enhancing energy efficiency and sustainability

Introducing the IQ Radiant Glass Arctic Series

The IQ Radiant Glass Arctic Series is a game-changer in the world of architectural glazing, offering unparalleled thermal performance and comfort in extreme climates. Designed to withstand severe wind loads and seismic zones, this innovative heating glass system not only provides exceptional heat gain control in summer but also ensures cozy warmth and comfort during winter months.

Features and Benefits:

  1. Exceptional Thermal Comfort: The Arctic Series maintains thermal comfort regardless of external conditions. In summer, the glass effectively blocks excessive heat from entering the building, reducing the need for air conditioning and lowering energy costs. This heat gain control is achieved through advanced glass coatings and insulation techniques, ensuring a comfortable indoor environment even on the hottest days.

  2. Winter Warmth: During winter, the Arctic Series excels in keeping interiors warm and cozy. Its radiant heating technology distributes gentle warmth evenly across the glass surface, eliminating cold spots and reducing heat loss through windows. This not only enhances comfort but also minimizes heating requirements, contributing to energy efficiency and sustainability.

  3. Robust and Durable: The IQ Radiant Glass Arctic Series is engineered to withstand harsh environmental conditions. It is tested and rated for severe wind loads, making it suitable for buildings in areas prone to strong winds. Moreover, its robust construction is designed to withstand seismic activity, providing added safety and peace of mind for occupants.

  4. IQ Radiant Glass is compatible with any wood, steel, aluminum, or PVC framing system: allowing seamless integration into various architectural designs. Its versatility ensures that homeowners and builders can enjoy the advanced benefits of radiant heating technology without compromising on aesthetic or structural preferences.

  5. Integration with Reynaers Concept Wall 50: Complementing the Arctic Series is the Reynaers Concept Wall 50 rated passive system, which integrates seamlessly with IQ Radiant Glass to create a highly efficient building envelope. This passive system enhances thermal insulation, further reducing energy consumption and improving overall building performance.

Smart Integration for Energy Efficiency

Incorporating machine learning AI for on-site and remote control of security and energy management takes the benefits of IQ Radiant Glass to the next level. Here’s how:

  • Remote Control and Monitoring: With smart home integration, homeowners can remotely control the heating levels of their windows, ensuring optimal comfort and energy usage regardless of their location.

  • Automated Energy Management: Machine learning algorithms can analyze usage patterns and external weather conditions to adjust heating settings automatically, maximizing energy efficiency and minimizing costs.

  • Enhanced Security: Integrated sensors and smart systems provide real-time security updates and remote monitoring capabilities, enhancing the overall safety of the property.

The Ultimate Solution for Luxury Homes

IQ Radiant Glass is more than just a window; it’s a comprehensive solution for luxury living in cold climates. By preventing cold surface temperatures, condensation, and frost, and by integrating seamlessly with smart home systems, it enhances both comfort and efficiency. Whether for a primary residence or a luxurious lodge, IQ Radiant Glass ensures that your home remains a warm, welcoming sanctuary even in the harshest winters.

Invest in IQ Radiant Glass and experience the pinnacle of comfort, efficiency, and modern luxury. Transform your living spaces and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with cutting-edge technology designed to enhance your lifestyle.
