SIGU explores innovations for the construction industry. Existing concepts are turned inside out.
SIGU actually developes next generation insulated glazing, a revolutionary window concept.
SIGU® Brochure (pdf)
Our mission is to find simple and sustainable solutions for the building industry. We want to build the perfect shelter.
Population is growing, materials and energy sources become scarce. Therefor we invent applications with better performance skills and less material use.
SIGU pioneers to embed the structural potential of glass in a revolutionary total concept for window & door applications. The Structural Insulated Glass (SIG) technology is based on composite action between panes and frame.
The feasability of SIG-technology has been investigated in different embodiments:
The SIG-technology is patent pending
SIGU® is a key technology that reduces frame profile and obtains optimal thermal window performances. The technology allows double and triple glazing and can be embedded in almost any window & door application: skylights, façade windows, curtain walls, commercial refrigeration, etc.
The commercial refrigeration glass door has a contemporary all glass look and reduced frames: the width of the frames is 10mm in case of double glazing and 20mm in case of triple glazing (included 10mm border insulation). Gaskets at the periphery of the doorframes ensures an airtight connection with the mainframe to save energy and costs. Testing and validation of the prototypes is expected end 2017.
The skylight application has a contemporary glass look with a transparancy/opaque ratio of 65-80% (depending on the geometry). This results in natural light gain of up to 45% compared to similar existing skylights. The developement of the roof window application is put on hold.
SIGU is looking for beneficial partnerships based on clear and consistent win-win principles/agreements. We are particularly keen on finding business partners to implement the glass door application in commercial refrigeration.
