4 benefits Vacuum Glass application in glass conservatory
Glass Conservatory ,also named as winter garden,or sunrooms.is a non-traditional building built with glass and metal frame, it allows people to enjoy the sunshine and get close to nature. Sunshine house is a building respected by people who pursue nature and fashion.
The conservatory realizes the function of houses and intimate contact with sun, and can enjoy the warmth of the sun even in the cold winter. Second, due to the unique thermal insulation effect of sunroom, it can realize the function of greenhouse and create a warm living environment for family members even in cold winter.
sunrooms are mostly built on balconies, In order to improve the day lighting effect as much as possible, glass will be used as walls in a large area.
Emergement of glass conservatory
The conservatory appeared 200 hundred years ago.After Columbus discovered the new world and before the industrial revolution, many tropical plants, flowers and fruits entered Europe. The cold climate in Europe cannot support the farming and production, while the Royal Palace nobles in Europe liked to enjoy this kind of planting&farming, so the Royal craftsmen built some greenhouses to meet the needs of the nobles.
Later, it was found that these greenhouses are full of sunshine and green, so they can not only be used as greenhouses to cultivate tropical crops, but also form a special space for leisure, entertainment, family gatherings and studios.
Shortages of glass conservatory
- Extremely hot in summer
In this summer, The sunroom becomes directly a sauna room or a dryer, and the clothes can be dried after hanging in for a while.
The sunroom is originally prepared for winter. When the cold wind is coming, sit in the sunroom to bask in the sun, read books, raise flowers and grass, and have a place to dry clothes and quilts when the weather is bad. The sunroom can not only block the wind and rain, but also have transparent light, which improves the utilization rate of space.
- Bad soundproof performance
Among the major problems perplexing house owners, the noise in rainy days always ranked as priority.
Glass material can only rely on thickness to achieve better sound insulation effect, but the glass thickness &weight increases will also result in higher costs .
- Condensations in winter.
“Cold bridge” always occurs frequently in cold area. In cold winter, the temperature difference between indoor and outdoor is very large. After the cold air enters the room, it combines with the hot air to form a water mist, which is adsorbed on the surface of the sunshine room, and then flow down, which affects the beauty of the sunshine room.
Benefits of applying vacuum insulating glass in conservatory
Vacuum insulating glass is a glass product that separates two pieces of glass with micro pillar supports, seals the periphery with inorganic materials, extracts air and create high vacuum cavity, and finally forms a glass product similar to a transparent flat thermos.
Applying vacuum insulating glass in glass conservatory will bring many benefits and solve most problems that bothering house owners.
1.Vacuum glass avoid high temperature in Summer and keep warm in winter.
Compared with normal tempered glass,vacuum glass thermal insulation performance is only 1/10.
|Glass Combination||LT %||U value-EN673||SHGC|
|6mm clear glass||88||5.74||0.83|
|6mm grey glass||45||0.74||0.67|
|6.38 clear lami||88||5.59||0.81|
|6.38 lami with hard coated low-E||81||3.8||0.70|
|3+12A+3 with S1.16 coating||81||1.71||0.61|
|3+12A+3 with D80 double silver low-E||69||1.65||0.40|
|3+12A+3 with T70 triple silver low-E||67||1.62||0.30|
|3+0.3V+3 VIG with D80 double silver low-E||69||0.47||0.40|
Thanks to the vacuum space and high performance low-E coating inside,In summer,the vacuum glass block most solar radiation and prevent heat transmit from hot outside into sunroom.Meanwhile it transmit the visible light into cool light with much lower heat.In summer,the glass conservatory is no longer a dryer.
In winter,vacuum glass prevent the heat inside transmit glass and decrease heat loss.
Most importantly,whether vacuum glass to be installed vertically or horizontally,the U value won’t change and offering same thermal insulation performance.
2.Thin and light,decrease system requirement and overall costs.
Many house owners prefer using double glass units with thickness over 20mm,while increased glass thickness will result in thicker profiles and complex thermal break materials,overall sunroom costs increased significantly.
Vacuum glass can be 6.3mm thick and far superior performance,this will help decrease the strength of suspending systems and make it thicker and cheaper.
3.Vacuum glass prevent conservatory condensation.
The high-performance vacuum glass keeps the glass inner surface warm and reduces the condensation and frost in winter. The condensation temperature of vacuum glass can be lower than – 50 ℃
Condensation will not occur in the vacuum layer.
The vacuum layer does not condense, so that the Low-E film has a longer service life.
4.Vacuum glass increase sunroom acoustic performance.
The propagation speed of sound in absolute vacuum is 0, while the micro support pillars and glass edge will keep sound transmit the glass ,because of the 0.15mm and 0.3mm vacuum space ,it works better in low and middle frequency noise.VIG works well in keeping your sunroom quiet.
|Glass Type||Thcikness||Noise reduction|
Beside that,tempered vacuum glass has much higher strength than anneal glass and protect people & property once glass is broken.
For conservatory roof,it’s suggested to use laminated vacuum glass to prevent glass rain.
