Electrically Heated Glass
for All Your Needs
What is electrically heated glass?
Electrically heated glass is a special type of treated glass to which a transparent electrically conductive coating has been applied. The electric current passes through cables on this coating, generating heat and causing the glass to begin radiating heat.
The intensity of the heat can differ; it depends on the final application. The glass can be single laminated glass or integrated into a double or triple insulating glass unit.
Applications where HeatVision® glass can be used
HeatVision® as Anti-condensation Glass
HeatVision® glass raises its temperature beyond the dew point to prevent condensation.
Depending upon application, HeatVision® can be used as either laminated safety glass or as insulating glass.
The temperature of the glass is controlled using a simple thermostat up to home automation system.
• Invisible anti-condensation system
• Low energy consumption
• No maintenance
Where you can use it:
• Doors and windows
• Glass roofs
• Indoor glass partition walls
• Marine applications
HeatVision® as a Snow Melting System for Overhead Glazing
Heavy snow loads can cause glass and its related structures to collapse, if proper snow removal techniques are not practiced.
HeatVision® heated glass can solve the problem of snow accumulation. When the snow sensor detects snowflakes, the glass automatically begins to heat, melting the snow. The surface remains clean the whole time as the heated glass turns the snow into water.
