Radiant Heating Glass
IQ Radiant Glass® has the proven glazing technology, that when combined with high-performance steel or aluminum profiles, will provide you windows, doors and façades that will exceed all of your expectations. IQRG bespoke steel systems are simply exceptional.
Our windows, façades and doors compliment your designs - but what makes them truly special? The answer is that in cold weather conditions, highly glazed exteriors on commercial and modern residential buildings have a significantly negative impact on the thermal comfort of the occupants. The source of the discomfort is thermal asymmetry. IQ Radiant Glass® disperses the asymmetry in occupied zones.
Steel windows equipped with IQ Radiant Glass® technology become part of the building heating system. The electrified glass in the windows produces a localized long-wave radiant heat all under the control of the smart building management system. How it Works
IQ radiant technology use physics to eliminate window sweating, frost, and condensation by raising the interior surface temperature of window glass 3 - 5 °F above a given interior ambient temperature.
Heat flows naturally from warmer bodies to colder bodies; by transforming glass into sources of warmth, we stop the movement of heat towards windows and the weather outside.
A window with radiant glass emanates comfort. The glass surface is uniformly heated with precise control - which means you get an ideal indoor environment, no matter what the temperature is outside.
Radiant Glass® directs safe radiant heat into the room warming occupants and other surfaces
The infrared radiates in a crossfire effect
The internal metal frame, thermally broken from the exterior, absorbs the heat raising the dew point, eliminating condensation
There are no significant losses as the warmed surface of the metal frames further radiates its own heat into the room
When relative humidity level is 70% and outside temperatures are extremely low, IQ Radiant Glass™ and metal frames are free of condensation.
The window works in a condensation control mode in hot months, and a heating mode when its cold
Thermal Dynamic Glass is ideal for eliminating condensation from the surface of glass in hot and humid conditions. By warming the surface of the glass a degree or two above dew point you balance temperature and keep your windows clean and clear.
Heating elements are usually installed on the exterior of glass in hot and humid climates, but can also be installed on the interior if humidity is generated from within a building (like in swimming pools and spas).Manage The Elements
Thermal glass can help fight winter elements. It can melt frost, prevent the buildup of ice and snow, and keep your indoors warm and comfortable.
This isn't just a question of cosmetics - limiting the impact of winter weather can improve building integrity, enhance public safety, and save energy costs.Improve Indoor Comfort
Our windows help maintain room temperature by preventing convection (the feeling of coldness and draftiness you feel when you're close to a traditional glass window).
Convection happens when the air close to glass becomes cooler than the air in the rest of the room. But when glass is heated to just one or two degrees higher than room temperature, it stops convection (and heat loss), allows you to lower your thermostat, and lets you save on energy and heating costs.
