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.

HeatVision® as a Primary Heating Source in Buildings

HeatVision® glass can be used as a heating system to achieve maximum comfort in your home.

The electrically heated glass at the surface temperature of 26–28°C triggers transfer by radiation, bringing the entire room to a temperature of 20–22°C. Heat is evenly distributed throughout the entire space, ensuring a high degree of comfort.

The dimension of the heated glass depends on the level of thermal insulation of your building. It should be between 10% and 30% of the floor area of the room.

Room in house with electrically heated glass

Benefits:

  • Invisible heating source
  • Excellent comfort in heated areas
  • No cold spots near windows
  • No condensation on windows
  • Reduction of health problems associated with forced hot air systems (e.g. dust, mites)
  • No need for costly underfloor heating, heating plants or hot water circuits
  • 100% green technology if used in combination with renewable energy sources
  • No maintenance

Where you can use it:

  • In the insulating glass unit, installed in traditional windows or in all-glass façade systems
  • In offices as partition walls, one glass can heat two rooms. The glass is a safety laminated with acoustic PVB, so safety and noise reduction are also guaranteed.

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.
