Abstract

This article deals with progressive glass unit in glazing systems of building facades. Main aim of this research is reduction of heat gain in interior achieved by water added into Basic Insulation Glass Unit (hereinafter as IGU) which thereby becomes a transparent collector. Concerning heat gain reduction, this system provides a variety of positive characteristics. In relation to outdoor conditions, however, the system has its limitations, due to which each glass unit needs to be designed with regard to the climate condition it is intended for. These special properties have been described in previous articles. Currently, the model in scale 1:1 is prepared and provided for measurements in test chamber. Observation of liquid-filled window in summer weather simulation has brought valuable results for temperature, radiation and humidity. Temperature has been observed on surfaces, and exterior and interior sides of cavities.
