Energy Thermo GB Panel

Panels made of innovative glass components (called “Thermo GB”), provided with a special thermal belt for highly insulating power.

The glass blocks are dry assembled and prestressed and can be used for the construction of building facades and roofs.

The low levels of thermal transmittance, in line with the international building regulations, make their application suitable for different climate contexts.

SBskin dry assembly system VS traditional mortar-based assembly system

With the innovative SBskin assembly systems, only 30 minutes are needed to assemble a 2 sqm panel, as opposed to what happens with mortar-based solutions which depend on curing time. This results in significant time and money savings without compromising the quality of the result.

With the traditional mortar-based assembly systems, the quality of the construction of the building element (façade, roof, internal partition…) is strictly related to the specific, local labor skills. On the contrary, the dry prefabricated SBskin panels allows for a perfect realization of translucid building elements with only 2 mm joints between the glass blocks.

SBskin’s panels are also prestressed to resist earthquakes and wind forces, allowing for high-rise building installations.

Besides the enhanced insulation power, the use of plastic profiles to assemble the panels allows for an easy maintenance and dismantlement, recyclability of the subcomponents and a high product customizability.

Advantages of the dry assembly system

  • Ideal for curtain-wall application;
  • Time for construction: 30 min for 2 sqm;
  • Joints: 2 mm;
  • Results independent of labor skill;
  • High mechanical features to resist earthquakes and wind force;
  • Recyclable, dismountable, easy maintenance;
  • Customizability;
  • Thermal insulation.

Traditional mortar-based assembly system

  • Placement occurring on an existing substructure;
  • Time of construction: dependent on mortar curing time;
  • Joints: 5-10 mm;
  • Results dependant on labor skill;
  • Limited mechanical features to resist earthquakes and wind force.

Notes

The features of the panels depend on those of the constituting glass components. The features of the plastic material used for the “thermal belt” and of the transparent and/or translucent glass elements determine different effects in terms of energy saving – essentially contributing to the thermal insulation and light transmission performance of the building envelopes – and in terms of appearance also in relation to the possible chromatic combinations that cover the entire RAL color range.
