Lindes, is a spanish word that means line that divides a part of another. Lindes is a Mexican company that helps homes and enterprises define the spaces around their life. We seek for a negotiation between comfort and environment, where natural light is welcome and we chose how much heat, cold or noise is needed from our surroundings.
Is a compound of at least two panes glass and a peripheral spacer arranged in a way to encapsulate an air or gas chamber that lowers the unit thermal and acoustic conductivity. Visit our insulating glass section for further questions.
THERMAK® insulation unit slows the passage of heat and noise inside a houses or buildings. Maintaining a stable temperature inside, this reduces the use of air conditioning in summer and heating in winter.
IGMAs (Insulated Glass Manufacturers Alliance) studies maintains that aging failures start 25 years after the installation with in 1 and 2 % of the products, without losing performance. Improper installation is the main source of these failures.
When comparing THERMAK® with normal glass, costs are nearly as twice as monolithic glass, nevertheless, THERMAK® efficiency will return investment.Costs may vary according to the specifications and efficiency required, glass sheets can be similar or different and match different types to achieve excellent thermal, acoustic and aesthetic. A good specification helps to have better tangible or intangible value of the glazing.
Low E glass is a type of coated glass that has a selective reflection property and improves the unit insulation. That can be also explained that is a more transparent glass that reflects most of the UV and Infrared rays, making a more efficient insulated unit.
The largest energy consumption of a building inhabited lies in cooling, heating or mechanical ventilation and artificial lighting. THERMAK® insulating glass lets in natural light, and filters ultraviolet and infrared rays.
Insulating glass ensures energy savings provided the building count with good insulation in their other building elements and following the recommendations of handling and installation.
Get natural light throughout the day without the passage of heat.
Achieve optimal acoustic environment for work and relaxation.
Increase your productivity by having an ideal environment.
Insulating glass is twice as resistant to wind load that a monolithic glass or laminate.
Lindes is a company with over 70 years in the field of glass and 14 years of expertise in Insulating Glass, internationally certified and specifier of the largest and most efficient projects throughout Mexico.
The glass may be tempered before final assembly. A Thermak® IG may include normal glass, tempered, laminated, printed, satin or sandblasted, Low E, etc.. Even may have the same or different thickness or size.
As gas is much denser than air, particles take longer to heat up and move from glass to another, giving higher insulation properties to the inner chamber.
Units can contain all kinds of similar or different glass to achieve desired efficiency and aesthetics, we can integrate into a single unit normal glass, clear, extra light, light, Low E, tempered, reflective, coated, screen-printed, textured, laminated, etc.. Glasses may be two different sizes and thicknesses as well as irregular shapes.
Different combinations of glass and Low E can help light and heat values be as efficient as you want, we have the experience to provide the right combination that allows perfect performance in your project.
For stock using units delivery time is about 4 days, varying the size and configuration of the unit. For larger projects, contracts and deliveries are made per floor or footage. Our commitment is for you to have your units at the agreed time.
When moving from one city to another Tharmak Units may break or be deform, because of pressure changes. To ensure quality capillary tube are installed. For more information see our technical bulletins.
Light transmission refers to the amount of light passing through THERMAK® units. Its spectrum lays between 400 and 750 nm wavelength. Light transmittance value does not measure ultraviolet or infrared rays.
U-value is the amount of heat units transmitted per hour / minute from outside to inside the building and vice versa. Is the coefficient of thermal insulation glass.
Solar factor is the adding of the amount of heat which passes through light, plus heat radiated by the unit when in contact with sunlight.
THERMAK® insulating glass can generate a maximum of 23-26 credits for LEED construction certification.
Lindes is a B Corp. This means we are part of a worldwide group that uses the power of business to generate profits in favor of ecology and community. For more information visit our environmental impact section and find out how.
