ISOshade® - Insulating glass with integrated sunblind

ISOshade® is an insert element for façades and combines protection against sunlight, heat and noise in one compact unit. ISOshade® is an insulating glass unit with a factory integrated sun protection system. The unit consists of triple glazing and a sun protection system in a cavity – a venetian blind with 60mm or 80mm slats or a vertical blind.

// Watch clip: product design

The ISOshade® façade is a closed double-skin façade that function is based on building physics principles. Usually, closed double-skin façades use an energy-intensive pressurized air supply or a ventilation system: Compressed, dried air is distributed through a pipe system to manage condensation in the cavity.

The cavity within ISOshade® conditions itself via a volume-dependent system. This eliminates the need to purchase, install and build any ventilation or piping system, and at the same time reduces operating and life cycle cost.


Product variants

  • Control of incoming light
  • Lower heating and cooling costs
  • Compatible with all façade systems and openable elements
  • Installation by approved metalworking companies
  • Requires little maintenance, easy replacement

Clever pressure compensation

The ingenious concept is based on a sealed cavity. A special pressure compensation system maintains the permissible climate loads in the cavity. A maintenance free system ensures that the pressure in the cavity is kept at a permissible level. In other words: The cavity within ISOshade® conditions itself via a volume-dependent system. For further protection against condensation, the spacers are filled with a desiccant.

With this simple and auto-conditioning functional principle, ISOshade® fills the gap between the Closed Cavity Façade with external ventilation and an insulated glass façade with external sun protection. 

Element for high-performance façades

ISOshade® is handled like insulating glass and installed as a complete product in mullion/transom or unitised façades.

The glass make-up (heat-strengthened, toughened safety or laminated safety glass), interlayers and coatings are specified to suit individual performance requirements. Depending on the glass make-up, ISOshade® provides U-values up to 0.6 W/(m²K), g-values of 8% and airborne sound insulation values up to 52 dB.

Two product versions are available
