Vacuum glass is a revolutionary step in the field of (glass) insulation. BENGglas is a type of vacuum glass and has additional advantages over regular vacuum glass.
Vacuum glass is extremely thin insulation glass in which two panels of glass are separated by a high vacuum space. This vacuum prevents heat and sound transmission and ensures a high insulation value and great sound attenuation. Microscopic spacers are inherent to vacuum glass and prevent the two glass plates from touching each other. BENGglas has several advantages over regular vacuum glass:
- BENGglas can always be tempered (tempered glass is 5 times stronger, is injury safe and has no thermal break)
- BENGglas has an U-value from 0.40 while regular vacuum glass has an U-value of 0.70
- BENGglas has up to 6 times fewer and smaller spacers
- BENGglas is significantly cheaper than regular vacuum glass
