RANGE

PERFORMANCE

Light transmittance
SGG DECORGLASS clear: from 80% to 90% depending on the pattern reference and thickness.
SGG DECORGLASS clear wired: approximately 80%.
A large percentage of the light is transmitted by means of diffusion.

Translucency
Each patterned glass reference is categorised by a visual screening coefficient i.e. facilitating the selection of a suitable pattern to achieve the desired level of obscuration.

Heat transmittance coefficient
U-value = 5.7 W/m2K

Fire resistance
In certain framing systems, SGG DECORGLASS WIRED provides protection against the spread of fire and smoke. In some countries, this type of glass is used expressly because of its fire resistant properties. (Class E in accordance with standard BS EN 357). These performance levels must be validated by a certificate from SAINT-GOBAIN GLASS.
 

GUIDELINE

SGG DECORGLASS must be installed in accordance with safety standards and current national regulations. For a uniform appearance, adjacent panes should all be cut and glazed in the same pattern direction.
SGG DECORGLASS WIRED must not be installed above a direct source of heat. If the glass is installed in a damp
environment or if it is subjected to high levels of atmospheric pollution, the edges of the glass must be treated and sealed to prevent oxidisation.
