Insulated glazing meets strict thermal requirement

Insulated glazing meets strict thermal requirement

CUIN insulating glass unit from Crystal Units was chosen for the Hands Building student accommodation due to its extremely high thermal performance.

The Hands Building student accommodation has been designed to retain as much green space as possible using heat exchange and solar thermal technology for space heating.

To ensure energy generation demand is kept as low as possible, very high thermal performance was a requirement for the building fabric. CUIN enabled a 0.6 W/m²K centre pane U-value in a 32mm thick IGU, which lent itself perfectly to the Crittall Windows MW40 system where thermal performance and heritage appearance combined are essential.
