ISOshade® - sunlight, heat and noise protection
ISOshade® 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 60 or 80 mm slats or a vertical blind.
Clever pressure compensation
ISOshade® fills the gap between closed cavity façade as an operational system on the one hand and an insulated glass with sun protection system on the other hand.
The ingenious concept is based on a 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 within ISOshade® conditions itself via a volume-dependent system. For further protection against condensation, the spacers are filled with a desiccant.

Insulating glass 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.
