R-Series Vitrius Specialty Glass
Vitrius R-Series system features a patented radiant glass technology that produces thermal energy.
Radiant glass technology provides transparent insulation by creating a perfect thermal barrier between the building envelope and the exterior environment, and can also be used as a primary or auxiliary heat source.
The use of Interstate windows with R-Series glass provides superior thermal comfort, uses substantially less energy than traditional heating systems, reduces heating costs, and eliminates condensation or fogging of glass.
Like the light from a lamp, radiant windows cast a warm heat that is absorbed by surrounding objects. Radiant windows, therefore, provide comfort at lower room air temperatures by increasing the radiant heat in the room.
It works by directly warming objects – not by heating the air. Additionally, radiant glass stops all of the heat otherwise lost through the glass in an opening from the interior – providing an exponentially higher R-Value than a traditional window system.
