Facade element

Parapet elements, also known as facade elements, facade sandwich elements or insulating glass, offer a further application possibility in building insulation with our vacuum insulation panels (VIPs). These elements consist of two cover layers – for example, glass or metal plates and a VIP layer in between. A spacer surrounds the elements at the edge.

To avoid thermal bridges, the spacer should be chosen carefully:

Figure 1 shows VIPs combined with a thermally optimized spacer, thus minimizing thermal bridges.

Figure 2, on the other hand, shows that a poor choice of spacer increases thermal bridges (red).

Our VIPs prove their practical advantages, e.g. in the Grand Tower, Frankfurt am Main.
