Vitro Architectural Glass celebrates consecutive wins at the Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards for VacuMax™ VIG and Solarvolt™ BIPV glass, recognized for fostering architectural brilliance and high-performance design.
In a notable achievement, Vitro Architectural Glass clinches dual victories at the Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards (PIA) for the second consecutive year. This prestigious recognition underscores the innovative prowess of Vitro’s VacuMax™ VIG and Solarvolt™ BIPV glass, acknowledged for their contributions to the creation of aesthetically pleasing, distinctive, and high-performance architectural projects. The PIA, now in its 13th year, spotlights solutions that elevate the capabilities of architects, with a record-breaking number of submissions in 2023.
Vitro’s revamped VacuMax™ VIG emerges as a remarkably versatile product, featuring a slender build and lightweight design that seamlessly integrates into diverse traditional glazing systems. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, VacuMax™ VIG delivers an unparalleled improvement in thermal insulation performance, surpassing conventional insulating glass units by 3-5 times at a mere one-third of the overall thickness. This groundbreaking glass solution also outshines single-pane glass, providing up to 20 times superior insulation. Notably, VacuMax™ VIG contributes to enhanced building energy efficiency and a commendable reduction in operational carbon.
The exceptional longevity of VacuMax™ VIG sets it apart from other Vacuum Insulating Glass (VIG) products, showcasing superior resilience against thermal expansion or contraction induced by extreme temperature variations. These units not only excel in thermal insulation but also elevate acoustic performance, effectively dampening noise in various settings. Noteworthy is the reduced center of glass condensation, even at frigid temperatures plummeting to -58 °F. Explore the transformative capabilities of VacuMax™ VIG at vacumaxvig.com .
