sun protection insulating glass

TG-THERM®sun is an insulating glass element consisting of one, two or more individual sheets. Thiele Glas has one of the largest facilities in the world for the fabrication of insulating glass.When required, TG-THERM®sun can be equipped with widely varying properties or combinations thereof. TG-THERM® offers exceptional possibilities for applications in the areas of insulation, sound-proofing, sun protection and security.

An optimal combination of these characteristics results in significant energy savings and, through the associated reduction in fuel consumption, contributes actively to climate protection. With the use of coated glass it is possible to fabricate multi-functional insulating glass for nearly every special need. 

Due to special coating TG-THERM®sun reflects more UV light than conventional glass. Thus TG-THERM®sun offers a higher sun protection and is therefore particularly suitable for large-are glazing of facades and roofs.
