OKATECH Insulating Glass with Metal Interlayer
The innovative power of OKALUX has much to offer for the design oriented architect: a design element in the area of multi-pane glazing called OKATECH.OKATECH is an insulating glass with metal interlayer. Various textures such as metal interlays, expanded metal grids or ornaments with perforations (“holes”) with different colour coverings become combined with sun protecting or heat loss covering and thus add glow, structure and texture to the insulating glass. Emphasis is given to the interplay of visual attractions, light and shadow, glow and structure, light diffusion and reflection. Tightly woven patterns in façade glazings can almost “exclude” glare caused during the zenith of the summersun. The result of the dispersal of artificial or natural light through the material patterns are constantly new and fascinating reflections. These shadow patterns reduce the direct solar transmission. The total degree of energy transmission is basically determined by the absorption of the incorporated metal wires and can be lower than 30%. Interesting for the eye: if the weave is applied in different densities, it highlights the lightness and elegance of architecture and deliberately creates contrasting light effects.Functionality meets optical attractiveness: the effective and transparent sun protection is combined with an aesthetic sight protection. The manifold possible combinations allow a precise, object specific adjustment of light transmission and g-values with variable transparency. ProductsExpanded metal grids can be variably applied as natural aluminium, powder coated, anodised, patinated or colour-printed. The metal weaves are made of stretched wires in different wire- and rope thickness. They are available in both in bronze or in elegant stainless steel. Standard weave types are: Louvre, Sambesi, Omega, Kiwi, Mandarin. Other weave types on request.
