Contact Person: Giovani Toniato


Technology

The Solar Window Block is a modular and flexible solution aimed at reducing building energy demand, while also generating energy and increasing indoor comfort. The Solar Window Block is a physical framework surrounding the window frame made of insulating materials, composite wood, metal supports and sealing bands. Its thickness can easily be varied depending on the window hole and the design needs, determining a very flexible solution.​ In addition, it can guarantee fast and correct installation, absence of thermal bridges, and is completely compatible with the rest of principle elements that form the solar window block: mechanical ventilation systems, integrated shading system and integrated semitransparent BIPV. Key features: i) The monoblock window provides an insulated window frame to avoid thermal bridges​; ii) Internal air exchange passive controlled fresh air airflow (Trickle vent)​; iii) Shading system in order to permit the internal obscuration and avoid internal overheating
