Making Veenoord homes more sustainable with BENGglas BASIC
The house was previously fitted with single glazing. Single glass has very poor insulating properties. These insulating properties are expressed in a U-value. The higher the U-value, the less insulating the material is. The old-fashioned single glass has a U-value of 5.8. The newly installed vacuum glass has a U-value of 0.58. This means that the glass has started to insulate 10x better!
In order to guarantee the authentic appearance as much as possible, the woodwork has been thickened in places and the profiles have been mounted back. An example of this is the drip sill.
