Heated Glass

Heated Glass from IQ Glass is a completely transparent electrical glass solution used to heat a space, stop condensation build up or melt snow or ice.

Modern Glass Technology by IQ Glass

How It Works

The Specialist Heated Glass has a transparent metal oxide coating applied to the glass unit. Electricity is passed through the coating via buzz bars at the head and the base of the unit which are concealed within the glass construction.

When electricity is passed through the coating it generates a radiant heat source. Depending on the power input into the glass this radiant heat can either be used to heat a space using the infra-red radiation, create a warm surface to the glass to stop condensation forming on the glass, or create a warm surface on the outside of a glass structure to stop snow or ice build-up.

IQ Glass will create a heated glass unit based on your specifications and required application. The specialist heated glass units can be single, double or triple glazed, can be installed into frameless structural installations or into framework to suit each application.

IQ Heated Glass - Large elevations

Where to use it

Heated Glass is a great solution in pool or spa areas to keep large elevations of glass condensation free. No trench works, floor grates or blow heaters are required maintaining a minimal, modern interior design.

If heated glass is to be used as an invisible heating solution for any space it is recommended you use at least 20% of the floor area of the space in heated glass. The smooth radiant heat of heated glass creates a uniquely comfortable temperature within the space, reducing any cold drafts near large glazed elevations.

Heated glass removes the need for radiators, costly underfloor heating and can be a great heat source for listed buildings or highly glazed rooms.
