Considerations

To avoid noise leaks, you need to ensure that EnergyTech™ is installed in a frame that's well sealed and professionally fitted. If the frame isn't sealed properly then EnergyTech™ can't work to its full potential.

Application 

EnergyTech™ when single glazed, must be single glazed with the exposed coating to the inside of the building (surface #2). When incorporated into IGUs solar control glass products can be glazed with coatings to surface #2 and #3.

Glass Processing

Does not require edge deletion for use in insulated glass units.

Thermal Stress and Fracture Risk

Some products recommended for thermal stress fracture risk assessment.

How to Specify
EnergyTech™ glass thicknesses and colours available:
  • Clear 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 & 12mm
  • Grey 4, 6mm
  • SuperClear 6mm
  • SuperGreen 6mm

Select from: Annealed, Heat Strengthened, Toughened or Toughened Heat Soaked

*If unsure, select in compliance with AS1288–2006 or manufacturers recommendation.*

The glass shall comply with the following performance criteria:

  • U value
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)
  • Visible Light Transmission %
  • Glass Only Values
  • Total window
Annealed

Annealed glass is glass produced without internal stresses imparted by heat treatment, i.e., rapid cooling, or by toughening or heat strengthening. Annealed glass is not a Grade A safety glass.

Toughened

Glass converted to a safety glass by subjection to a process of pre-stressing so that, if fractured, the entire piece disintegrates into small, harmless particles. Toughened glass is a Grade A Safety Glass.

Heat Soaking

Heat soak testing is a destructive test, which reduces the likelihood of spontaneous breakage by converting impurities such as nickel sulphide inclusions. Heat soaking is required in some but not all applications. If unsure, select in compliance with AS1288-2006 or manufacturers recommendation.

Heat Strengthening

All glass which requires extra strength and thermal resistance will be heat strengthened. Heat strengthening increases the strength of annealed glass; however, it is not a substitute for toughened glass.

In the event of fracturing heat strengthened glass will crack and tends to remain in glazed position.

Toned Glass

Toned glass absorbs a proportion of solar radiation and may require a thermal assessment depending on application.

All glass is to be selected and installed in accordance but not exclusively with the following Australian and/or New Zealand Standards

  • AS 1288 Glass in Buildings Selection and Installation
  • AS 1170 Minimum Wind Loads on Structures
  • AS/NZ 2208 Safety Glazing Materials in Buildings
  • AS/NZ 4666 Insulating Glass Units
  • AS/NZ 4667 Quality Requirements for cut-to-size and Processed Glass

 

Oceania Glass makes and distributes glass. Oceania Glass does not process glass nor produce Insulated Glass Units. Processing of glass and production of Insulated Glass Units is undertaken by independent processors. Speak with your nominated glass processors to understand their processing capability.
