OKALUX insulating glass elements with capillary inlays are beautiful and highly efficient. They diffuse the daylight deep into the room and provide a very good sun and glare control at the same time. Their heat insualtion properties are excellent and the transmission values of the glass can be individually adjusted to suit the requirements of your building.
KAPILUX is an insulating glass with an integrated capillary pane. The type description “T” stands for a capillary pane made of transparent material, "W" stands for a white-coloured material. The capillaries do not only reduce heat losses with Ug-values up to 0,8 W/(m²K) | 0.14 Btu/(h ft² °F): Their front-directed light dispersion significantly improves the illumination of the depth of the rooms – a valuable feature on cloudy days, especially in rooms that are illuminated from the side.
The challenge for OKALUX Light Diffusing Insulating Glass: to make daylight useful. With a translucent capillary slab covered with glass fibre tissues in the cavity, OKALUX achieves optimum, uniform light transmittance into the room, irrespective of irradiation conditions.
Every advantages at a glance:
- light diffusion for improved distance from opening lightning
- light transmission and total solar energy transmittance as required
- optimum, uniform light transmittance into the room, irrespective of irradiation conditionas
- very good colour rendering
- good heat insulation
- outstanding sound insulation
- UV protection as required
- partial throughvision
- attractive appearance in daylight and in artificial light
