The production of BENGglas
The vacuum glass production line has a length of 400 meters and annually produces 120,000 square
meters of toughened vacuum insulating glass.
When making a monumental building in Arnhem more sustainable, BENGglas completely fitted the facade with hardened vacuum glass.
The executor of the project – Achterberg Painters – touches on a number of important aspects of vacuum glass. This is what the contractor calls the good insulation value (U=0.4), the manageability and the light weight of the glass. This glass is installed in the same way as traditional insulating glass.
What makes vacuum glass extremely suitable for the renovation market is that this glass is very thin. With a thickness of only 6.3 mm, it almost always fits in the existing frames and they do not need to be replaced.
The residents also notice a big difference with the traditional double glazing. The reason for switching to vacuum glass was the improved insulation value, but they are also very pleased with the increased living comfort. This way they don't feel a 'draught' and noises from outside are muffled.
The entire project took only 2 days. The installation of the glass is taken care of by the national BENGglas dealer network.
