New Sealant Allows Historical Buildings to be Energy Efficient Yet Remain Authentic

Posted By ASC, Monday, July 31, 2017

Historical buildings add charm and character to any landscape, but they may not be very energy efficient. Now, a new sealant, Hotver A+, will allow the custodians of these architectural gems to improve energy efficiency through better insulation of glass surfaces without affecting the authentic appearance of windows.

SafeGuard, a UK manufacturer of insulating glass units will apply sealant technology developed in partnership with the Fenzi Group to its units, allowing historic buildings to reach energy efficiency targets in line with the EN1279 standard. This requires low gas leakage and moisture penetration. Previously, it was not possible to achieve this owing to the narrower space for glazing available in old buildings which did not allow for the installation of energy-efficient glass.

To ensure that the sealant would continue to perform well for extended periods, the Fenzi Group tested samples of the insulating glass, and the company says that its product will provide a long-term seal that will limit the need for further work on historic buildings after it has been installed.
