Q-AIR project: leading European innovations for glass façades

 

Q-Air is a unique single skin glass façade that offers all the performance and benefits of an active double skin façade. A premium unitized glass curtain wall system, Q-Air uses an innovative, multi-chamber insulating core, which delivers exceptional energy efficiency, living and working comfort, aesthetics and economic benefits.

Q-Air represents one of the leading European innovations, which is underlined by being selected and supported by Horizon 2020 programme (GA No. 737757), a Fast Track to Innovation Pilot (FTIP) scheme. An innovation project Q-Air: Sustainable Prefabricated Glass Façade with Performance Exceeding State-of-the-art Glass Façades of five consortium partners Trimo, Kohlbecker Gesamtplan, ZAG, Cantori and Skandinaviska Glassystem is dealing with the innovative sustainable glass facade Q-Air and its broad positive impacts across architecture, building industry, environment and society.

More information about the Q-Air Transparent, Opaque and Combination Unit prototypes is available in the Façade category of the EffiBUILDING database.
