Product description

TIMax® GL

TIMax® GL is a translucent glass fibre insulation material, which enhances the heat insulation (U-value) of U-profiled glass facades. It scatters incoming light nicely and fills the space between the double glazing unit completely. TIMax® GL additionally offers sun protection, because it reduces solar heat penetrating the window in the summer.

TIMax® GL is both, translucent and light scattering. Due to the effect of scattering light even deep rooms can be illuminated evenly, without blending and shading. TIMax® GL is UV-stable, temperature resistant up to 100°C and insensitive against humidity. It is easy to install.

With TIMax® GL in double-glazed U-profiled glass a Ug-value of down to 1,4 W/m²K can be achieved.


TIMax® GL-PlusF

TIMax® GL-PlusF is an advanced version of the translucent insulation material TIMax® GL and is often used, when there are higher demands for heat insulation.

In comparison to the standard material TIMax® GL the translucent insulation material TIMax® GL-PlusF has a higher density. It is more compressed in the double glazing unit, resulting in an optimal heat insulation (U-value) and improved sun protection (lower g-value). Because of the higher density the light transmission of TIMax® GL-PlusF is lower than the light transmission of TIMax® GL.

With TIMax® GL-PlusF in double-glazed U-profiled glass a Ug-value of down to 1,2 W/m²K can be achieved.

Concept

With the translucent insulation materials (TIM) TIMax® GL and TIMax® GL-PlusF double-glazed U-profiled glass facades can be adapted to the modern requirements of room climate, lighting and energy efficiency.

TIMax® GL is a translucent glass fiber insulation material, that enhances the heat insulation (Ug-value) of U-profiled glass facade systems significantly. In addition TIMax® GL reduces the solar heat gain due to incoming sunlight and provides a partial sun protection (low g-value).

TIMax® GL-PlusF has a higher density compared to our standard material TIMax® GL, which results in an even better heat insulation (Ug-value) and improved sun protection (lower g-value).

Due to their strong light scattering properties both TIMax® GL and TIMax® GL-PlusF provide an even illumination of the room, without blending or shading.
