Under the name BRIMM (Bright Renovation Insulation for building envelope through Materials and Methods) a consortium of companies and research and knowledge institutes is developing a new, smart method to insulate homes quickly and less expensively.
Within this project Brightlands Materials Center is developing retrofit window films to increase the energy-efficiency of already installed windows. We focus on two types of functionalities:
- low-emissivity, to reduce radiator heat loss through windows and enable lower U values;
- and solar infrared blocking. To reduce solar heat transmission and enable lower G values.
The great advantage is that the retrofit window films can be applied to existing windows. You don’t have te replace the glas.
