Heat protection panes:

Heat protection panes are a consequence of continuous technological progress and the pursuit of modern construction to minimize the demand for heating, and the relevant building insulation plays an increasingly important role. Modern energy management consists primarily of reducing energy losses and the controlled use of free solar energy.

Double glazing heat protection panes Effector Therm Effect are produced from low-emission, soft coating glass, which is produced in the "off line" process, i.e. metallic coating is applied to the surface off float glass production line. The value of emission coefficient of the coating is several times lower than the glass. Double glazing unit made of this type of glass allows to achieve excellent parameters: high daily light transmittance, the lowest possible U heat transfer coefficient, the greatest transparency, color neutrality and optimal energy transmittance (Effector Therm Effect pane with space between panes filled with the noble gas (argon) reaches heat transfer coefficient U = 1.0 [W / (m2 K)].

Double glazing heat protection panes Effector Therm Effect

The rising prices of traditional energy, dwindling energy resources, harmful emissions reduction associated with carbon dioxide to the environment and the increasing threat of climate change necessitate the introduction of efficient and cost-effective technologies.

Furthermore, in accordance with the revised construction law in 2009 the duty of buildings certification (energy passports) entered into force. 2009/91/EC Directives of the European Parliament and the Council of 16 December 2002 on the energy performance of buildings requires EU Member States to actively promote the improvement of the energy standard of buildings within the Community.

Therefore, our proposals go far towards improving the heat transfer coefficient of the building – triple glazing sun protection panes Effector Therm Effect consist of two panes with insulating coating, and the space between panes filled with argon, which allows for the perfect balance between the lowest U coefficients of values up to 0,6 [W / (m2 K)] and energy transmittance (g = 50) and the highest transparency (71% of light transmission) and that is in neutral colors (Ra = 95.7).

This type panes are used in locations where it is particularly important to achieve the lowest possible heat transfer coefficient, especially in passive houses.

ADVANTAGES of heat protection panes Effector Therm Effect:


  • lowering effect of the cold pane,
  • reduction of condensation of water vapor (balancing the pane temperature with the temperature inside the room, avoiding the risk of retting glass),
  • very good transparency and neutral colors


  • lower heating cost,
  • natural environment protection by reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.


Heat protection panes Effector Therm Effect operate both in the summer, reducing heating of the room, and in winter, reducing heat loss from the room. By reducing ultraviolet radiation penetrating into the room, we protect our health and slows down the fading of furniture, carpets and curtains.

Effector Therm Effect – fourfold glazing units

In order to meet the expectations of contemporary times and building technology we introduced fourfold glazing units – reaching a U-coefficient of 0.4 [W / (m2 K)]. This is due to an additional chamber in glazing and in order to achieve this parameter we produce glass units with a total width of 58 mm, with the necessity of hardening of some glass units.

Hardening process is made in technology with an air bag, rather than traditional ceramic rollers, thus eliminating the distortion of glass after heat treatment. Improvement of parameters increases the weight of the glass up to 40 kg / m2. Light transmittance Lt coefficient is also changed, which has worsened by about 8% compared to panes using standard low-emission coatings.

Panes of this type are used in windows produced ​​for passive houses.
