Why Vacuum Glazing?

As local authorities and councils are responsible for managing a vast housing stock and various buildings, including schools, offices, community centres, and more, ensuring energy efficiency is crucial. Vacuum Glazing (VG) presents a remarkable opportunity to revitalise these structures, providing sustainable, cost-effective, and comfortable solutions for various applications.

Benefits of Vacuum Glazing:

  1. Enhanced Thermal Insulation:
    With the majority of existing housing stock dating back to the post-war construction boom, there is a pressing need to address poor thermal insulation. VG offers a cutting-edge solution by providing superior insulation properties that significantly reduce heat transfer, keeping interiors warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
  2. Cost Savings:
    Installing VG in your buildings can result in substantial cost savings. By minimising heat loss during colder months and heat gain during warmer months, you can significantly reduce both heating and cooling costs.
  3. Energy Performance Compliance:
    Compliance with Energy Performance Regulations (EPC ratings) is a vital aspect for letting properties. VG aids in achieving and surpassing the required energy efficiency standards, ensuring your buildings meet regulatory requirements and minimise environmental impact.
  4. Environmental Responsibility:
    As local authorities strive to align with the government’s policy target of Net Zero, VG plays a pivotal role in reducing carbon emissions. Its exceptional insulating properties contribute to a greener future by reducing energy consumption and promoting sustainable practices.

Applications of Vacuum Glazing

1. Housing

Vacuum Glazing is an ideal solution for housing managed by local authorities, providing numerous benefits to both residents and property owners. By upgrading the windows in social housing and council rental properties with Vacuum Glazing, you can enhance thermal comfort, reduce energy consumption, and lower heating costs. The advanced insulation properties of VG help combat heat loss during the winter months and minimise heat gain in the summer, ensuring a more stable and pleasant indoor environment for residents. With improved energy efficiency, housing units become more sustainable, contributing to the overall reduction of carbon emissions and supporting the local authority’s environmental initiatives.

2. Public Buildings

Local authorities are responsible for managing a wide range of public buildings, including offices, community centres, libraries, and recreational facilities. These buildings often have a high energy demand and require efficient insulation solutions to maintain comfortable indoor conditions while minimising energy consumption. Vacuum Glazing is an excellent choice for public buildings, offering exceptional thermal insulation and helping to regulate indoor temperatures effectively. By installing Vacuum Glazing in these structures, local authorities can reduce heating and cooling costs, create a more environmentally friendly infrastructure, and provide occupants with a comfortable and energy-efficient space.

3. Schools

School buildings play a vital role in the community, providing a conducive learning environment for students. Vacuum Glazing is particularly advantageous for schools due to its ability to enhance thermal insulation and create a comfortable atmosphere conducive to learning. With Vacuum Glazing, schools can reduce heat loss during colder months, maintain stable indoor temperatures, and minimise the need for excessive heating. By implementing this energy-efficient solution, local authorities can create a more sustainable and cost-effective learning environment, ensuring that students and teachers can focus on education without unnecessary energy expenses.
