ISOshade® - space to gaze
ISOshade® is an insulating glass unit with an integrated sunblind. The unit consists of triple glazing and a sunblind in a cavity – a venetian blind with 60 or 80 mm slats or a vertical awning.
Insulating glass for high-performance façades
ISOshade® combines protection against sunlight, heat and noise in one compact unit. The glass make-up (heat-strengthened, toughened safety or laminated safety glass), interlayers and coatings are specified to suit individual performance requirements. The sunblind – in venetian or vertical awning format – is integrated in the cavity for effective protection against heat and glare.
Depending on the glass makeup, ISOshade® provides U-values up to 0.6 W/(m²K), g-values of 8% and airborne sound insulation values from 44-52 dB. ISOshade® is available with a venetian blind (ISOshade® RS) or vertical awning (ISOshade® SM).

Clever pressure compensation
ISOshade® uses technology (patent pending) that ensures a design life of more than 25 years. The ingenious concept is based on a hermetically sealed cavity. A special pressure compensation system maintains the permissible climate loads in the cavity. This system ensures that, as temperatures fluctuate, the pressure in the cavity is kept at a permissible level. In other words, the cavity conditions itself via a volume-dependent system. For further protection against condensation, the spacers are filled with a desiccant.
