Daylight use / wood-frame constructions

Two-layer glass facade systems with a wood-frame construction can be insulated against light dispersion with TIMax GL/S glass fiber insulation. TIMax GL/S is ideal whenever additional solar protection and therefore a low g-value is required. For large-scale glazings in particular, summer overheating protection is often an important planning criterion, which can be cost-effectively implemented with TIMax GL/S.

Membrane roofing systems

Membrane roofing systems

Membrane roofing systems enable the production of wide-spanned, filigree and translucent roof constructions. Well-known projects include the Cargo Lifter hangar and the Allianz Arena in Munich. To improve the thermal insulation of membrane roofs, 2-layer membrane structures are used. If TIMax GL/S and/or TIMax GL-PlusF are also inserted into the 2-layer membrane, the insulation is significantly improved and the incident light pleasantly scattered.

TIMax GL-PlusF, TIMax GL/S
Rooflights/skylights

Rooflights/skylights

Factories are known for their saw-tooth roofs, which generally face north and only allow diffuse light in, so that factory workers are not dazzled by direct sunlight. Skylights with TIMax produce the same effect, but also lead to improved spatial illumination, as direct sunlight is also dispersed and uniformly distributed inside.

TIMax CA, TIMax GL/S
Hot water solar collectors

Hot water solar collectors

In a solar collector the water tank is integrated into the collector. The collector circuit with a pump, heat exchanger, controller, etc. is eliminated. The surface of the collector is used as the absorber. The highly translucent TIMax CA honeycomb structure installed between the absorber surface and the glass minimizes the heat loss through the glass pane.
