History of vacuum glass
Vacuum glass was first described in a 1913 German patent, but it wasn't until the mid-20th century that the technology was actually used. The first commercial product was finally launched in 1996 and was immediately available on the Dutch market from that moment on.
BENGglas : 30 years of experience in glass
BENGglas has been active on the Dutch market since 2020 and has its origins in Giga-Glas! BV; an international glass wholesaler with 30 years of experience.
A sustainable future
Nowadays, vacuum glass from BENGglas has become an indispensable part of the insulating glass market. BENGglas is therefore actively working to accelerate the energy transition by stimulating product awareness and charging fair prices.
Lifespan of vacuum glass
Expected lifespan of 50 years
The lifespan of vacuum glass is at least 25 years, while retaining its insulation value. The expected lifespan is 50 years. Traditional insulating glass has a lifespan of approximately 20-40 years, but without retaining its insulation value. This will increase slightly over the years due to possible leaks in the frame.
Using a laboratory test, weather and light conditions over a period of 50 years can be simulated in a very short period of time. Although vacuum glass has been available since 1996, a long lifespan can be guaranteed.
Monumental vacuum glass
In some buildings, a "pulled" effect is desired to imitate the authentic appearance of the original window, also known as monumental glass. You can recognize monumental glass by an irregular curve or undulation in the glass.
The partnership with Monuglas makes it possible to combine BENGglas This way you enjoy the appearance of monumental glass, but with the insulation value of vacuum glass (U=0.40 instead of 2.8).
