Energy-intensive operation of air through the panes. conditioners during hot summer months is a thing of the past. Our Klima climate glazing is therefore particular- ly suitable for facades with a glass proportion of more Secondary heat output through absorption than 50 percent. In the colder seasons, the low Ug value of SEMCO KLIMA and SEMCO KLIMASTAR provides a comfortable room climate. Long-wave heat radiation is reflected back into the room. SEMCO KLIMA 700, 600, 500 / OPTIMALLY SUITABLE FOR: • Private, commercial and public buildings such as schools, office buildings, hotels, etc. • Buildings with a glazing proportion of over 50 percent Technical data on Page 32
KLIMA CLIMATE GLAZING 06 SEMCO KLIMA / SEMCO KLIMASTAR BE CONVINCED BY THE COLOR NEUTRAL TRANSPARENCY In comparison to conventional solar protection glazing, SEMCO KLIMA gives you a completely clear and faultless view of objects.

FOCAL POINT GLASS STRUCTURES 07 Light-flooded glass structures should provide a comfortable place to stay both in commercial and private buildings. However, temperatures can develop in transitional and summer months that can make a longer presence in such places unbearable. In addition, textiles and wood surfaces are pitilessly exposed to solar UV radiation and even plants are unprotected from burning lens effects. Living under glass becomes a relaxing event, even in high summer, with the climate glazing SEMCO KLIMA and SEMCO KLIMASTAR. Our Klima climate glazing is also equipped with high UV protection so that the plants and interior decorations remain unaffected.

THERMAL INSULATION GLAZING 08 SEMCO STAR / SEMCO ENERGY Thermal insulation equivalent to a wall Wherever summer thermal insulation does not play a role in facades with a relatively low glass percentage of under 50 percent, the thermal insulation glazing SEMCO STAR and SEMCO ENERGY provide an excellent and comfortable room climate. Both product groups meet the requirements of the Energy Savings Act. They can be used in low- energy and passive houses as they permit a lot of energy into the building but not back out again. Are you planning a facade with a glass percentage over 50 percent? Then SEMCO KLIMA or SEMCO KLIMASTAR are the perfect products for you [cf. P. 04]. Ug VALUE: THE SMALLER, THE BETTER Heat transfer (Ug value) Reflection Long-wave heat radiation outside inside The Ug value indicates how much heat in a room is transmitted to the outside through glass with a surface of 1 square meter and a temperature difference of 1 Kelvin. The EnEV 2009 requires Ug values of 1.1 W/m²K for glass (new building reference value). This value is undershot by SEMCO KLIMASTAR with Ug values of up to 0.4 W/m²K, setting new yardsticks in climate protection and energy savings. SEMCO STAR _ Felix Nussbaum Museum, Osnabrück This keeps the cold out ALL THERMAL INSULATION GLAZING ALSO AVAILABLE WITH THERMALLY INSULATED PLASTIC MULLIONS! The thermal energy of solar radiation is optimally utilized and, thanks to a low Ug value, the warmth remains in the building. Results are achieved that are comparable to the use of solid wall building materials. Unpleasant drafts are a thing of the past as the pane surface does not radiate the cold. So, high comfort is guaranteed, even directly next to a window. Our triple glazing SEMCO ENERGY is also available with g values of over 60 percent. Ask your consultant.

SOLAR PROTECTION GLASS 10 SEMCO SUN / SEMCO SUN REFLECT Creative reflections Buildings get an unmistakably animated profile with the solar protection glazing SEMCO SUN and SEMCO SUN REFLECT. Depending on the architectural visual requirements, the choice lies between neutral, blue, bronze, green, silver or gray reflective glass. An individually elegant, aesthetically colored and reflective facade can be achieved through different color gradations of the tinted glazing and different reflection strengths. Brilliant and modern surfaces are shown by SEMCO SUN and SEMCO SUN REFLECT, for example, when used in STRUCTURAL GLAZING facades where they can meet the requirements of modern architecture for almost completely seamless glass facades [cf. P. 19]. The facade is not just visually brilliant: The excellent thermal insulation with a Ug value of 1.0 W/m²K also meets the highest of requirements. Incidentally: If you are planning a facade with a glazing proportion exceeding 50 percent and you also want a fully neutral view through the glass, then SEMCO KLIMA or SEMCO KLIMASTAR are the ideal products [cf. P. 04]. SEMCO SUN 550/1 and SEMCO COLOR _ Berlin Hyp Bank, Berlin SEMCO SUN 340/1 und SEMCO COLOR _ Mercedes-Benz Car Dealership, Oldenburg

SOUND INSULATION GLAZING 12 SEMCO PHONE No chance for noise Street noise, loud operating noise or the noise from aircraft: Noise pollution through our environment has increased greatly in the past. Semcoglas provides silence. The noise stays on the outside with tested sound insulation glazing. SEMCO PHONE offers the appropriate glazing for various noise sources – whether for buildings on heavy traffic routes or in the neighborhood of discos and airports. Semcoglas can resolve small and large noise problems with a wide range of sound insulation glazing. Securely and effectively. SEMCO PHONE can, of course, also be combined with the appropriate climate, thermal insulation, solar protection and safety glass. For complete protection at all times inside a building.
13 Against the racket While the sound insulation index Rw does not sufficiently take into account the various noise spectra in buildings caused by different sound sources, the definition of noise insulation using the spectrum weighting values C and Ctr provides more meaningful statements. During the evaluation, data can also be determined on how the component behaves with regards to various types of sound. Noise situations: C Operational noise, emitted mainly in the medium and high-frequency range (e.g. motorways, trains at medium and high speed, low-flying jet airplanes) Ctr Operational noise, emitted mainly in the medium and low-frequency range (e.g. urban traffic, trains at low speed, high-flying jet airplanes, disco music) A selection of our sound protection glazing and their evaluated sound insulation index Rw (C; Ctr) can be found on Page 34.

SAFETY GLASS 14 SEMCO SAFE Safe is safe The composite safety glass SEMCO SAFE provides secure protection against forms of violence thanks to the varying thicknesses of the float or single-glazing safety glasses (SGS) and composite films which are bonded together under pressure and high temperatures. Depending on the pane structure, the performance range of our safety glazing ranges from private protection against forced entry to protection of persons and property with various resistance classes. Special requirements for an application, for instance in banking or public locations with particular protection needs, can be transparently met by SEMCO SAFE. SEMCO SAFE can also be combined with the appropriate climate, thermal insulation, solar protection and sound protection glass.

15 Fall protection glazing SEMCO SAFE offers integrated protection against cuts with the shard-binding property of the composite film and also provides remaining structural capacity in the case of glass breakage. It is also suitable for fall protection in the correct glass applications according to TRAV (technical rules for the use of safety glazing). These rules are issued by the German Institute for Construction Engineering (DIBt) and taken into consideration in all Federal states by the supervising building authorities. Semcoglas has a „General building inspection test certificate“ (AbP) for safety insulation glazing (double and triple) in the TRAV categories A, C2 and C3. The minimum configuration is CSG8-0.76 / PIS10 / CSG6-0.38. This can be expanded by a middle pane for triple glazing configurations. It can be produced with safety glass or even float glass. If glazing is produced according to the AbP, then the impact resistance is proven according to TRAV. This avoids the necessity of experimental tests or approvals in individual cases! Numerous easy options The individual glass panes in the composite safety glass SEMCO SAFE SENTRYGLAS® are bonded together with SentryGlas® intermediate film layers. A wide-ranging field of applications is made possible by the resulting high stiffness. Larger dimensions and less weight are just two of the advantages that this product offers in comparison to composite safety glass using PVB film as an intermediate layer. SEMCO SAFE SENTRYGLAS® opens up new architectural possibilities for architects and construction engineers. OPTIMALLY SUITABLE FOR: • Protection of valuable objects • Fall protection safety glazing (e.g. balcony balustrades, railings) • Protection of and against persons Technical data on Page 34
ALARM GLAZING 16 SEMCO DUR ALARM Securely monitored According to crime statistics, half of all break-ins are carried out via unsecured glazing areas. Semcoglas sounds the alarm: Excellent protection for buildings with SEMCO DUR ALARM, whether in the private, commercial or public sector. Burglars simply stand no chance when buildings are equipped with safety glass and integrated alarm function. The alarm strip is either positioned invisibly or discreetly visible - as a preventative deterrent. As soon as the glass is damaged, the alarm is triggered. SEMCO DUR ALARM reacts within seconds – driving the burglars away.

POINT-FIXED GLAZING SEMCO POINT 19 Perfect and to the point Floating facades and transparent lightness of design: The advantages of clear glass facades are clearly pointed out with SEMCO POINT. Thanks to this excellent system, large surface areas can be realized without frames. The fittings are flush-integrated in the panes with countersunk holes or combined with disc holders through cylindrical glass bores. The main point here is that: The point-fixed system is equipped with an articulated holder whose rotation point lies within the glass plane. SEMCO POINT is so simply relaxed: Forces that occur are directly diverted into the sub-structure. The intrinsic weight of the glass pane does not therefore cause any additional stresses in the holding area. The thickness of the glass can be reduced to a minimum. SEMCO POINT makes brilliant facade design possible through perfect technology. We also even offer a system with optimal grip for canopy systems and full glazing systems such as glazed passages, waiting rooms or public transport stops. SEMCO POINT _ Cruise Center, Warnemünde (top/bottom) SEMCO POINT _ Municipal museum, Demmin OPTIMALLY SUITABLE FOR: • Large area glazing, overhead glazing • Canopy systems • Fully glazed systems such as e.g. glazed passages, Disc holder Countersunk holder waiting rooms and public transport stops

28 QUALITY FROM SEMCOGLAS FLOAT GLASS The production of float glass in our float glass plant in Osterweddingen is a long, constant, never-ending flow. Only the highest of precision throughout the entire production line can guarantee the high quality of our float glass. Our plant can be rightly said to be one of the most modern glass- works in the world. COATING Coatings, e.g. with silver and metal dioxide, can specifically influence the properties of glass. These materials have a high transmissivity in the visible spectral range and a high reflectivity in the infrared range. In addition, metal oxides with a high refractive index are applied for antireflection.
29 BLANK The material glass requires a lot of know-how, secure handling and state of the art technology. Our experienced specialists ensure perfect results are achieved for blanks, rounded and canted edges, cut-outs and model panes with the use of state of the art CNC technology. A comprehensive stock of float and cast glass, together with design and special glazing, ensures rapid processing of orders. We can meet diverse requirements with precisely dimensioned blanks and process these into high-quality glass products. SPACER Hollow profiles made of aluminum, stainless steel, plastic or TPS (Thermo Plastic Spacer) are used as spacers. The two panes in insulation glazing can be held at the required distance in this manner. Desiccant is stored in the metal spacers. TPS in contrast does not need additional desiccant; such a warm edge system enables a more uniform temperature distribution over the glass surface and ensures that energy losses are minimized along the edge areas of insulation glazing. SEALING In the last step, the individual glass panes joined by a spacer are initially sealed circumferentially with Butyl (primary seal). The term Butyl stands for a specific butyl rubber recipe that is produced through the polymerization of polyisobutyls (PIB). Following this butyling, the insulation glazing panes are sealed (secondary sealing) with a sealant, generally based on poly- urethane or polysulfide. Some of the main properties of Butyl are the very high gas and water vapor impermeability, while the sealing material is primarily used to secure the stability of the insulation glazing pane and hold the Butyl cord in place, in addition to its sealing function. The standard edge connector height is approx. 11 mm.

GLOSSARY 35 Ug value Unit of measurement for heat loss of glazing. The smaller the Ug value, the better the thermal insulation. Ug values determined for vertical installation as per DIN EN 673. For physical reasons, the Ug value of insulation glazing increases dependent on inclination angle when installed at an angle. g value Unit of measurement for total energy transmittance through glazing. High g value: Additional and free thermal use of sunshine. Low g value: Reduction of summer heating of rooms due to sunshine. Light transmission Degree of light transmittance in percent. Indicates the percentage of visible light (for the radiation band between 380 nm and 780 nm) that can pass through the glass and is therefore dependent on the glass thickness and coatings. The higher the light transmission, the greater the daylight utilization. Degree of light reflection The percentage of visible light (for the radiation range from 380 nm to 780 nm) that is mirrored or reflected on the glass pane surface. A high degree of light reflection means a reduction of glare inside the room. Ra value The general color reproduction index Ra describes the color impression that the human eye has when viewing an object illuminated by daylight coming through glazing. With clear glass, Ra is 99%. Shading coefficient (b-factor) Average transparency factor of solar energy, based on the total energy transmittance of a double glazing insulation glass, used to calculate the cooling load of glazed rooms. Shading coefficient (b factor) = g value / 0.80 (VDI 2078) Rw value Value for the sound insulation. The higher the sound insulation value, the better the sound insulation. In addition to the sound insulation value, the frequency of the sound source is taken into account with correction factors (C; C (C; Ctr) for good noise insulation. Facade panels Facade panels made of enamelled glass matched in color to the glazing. As color impressions are subjectively evaluated, sampling is recommended before specifying the glazing. The facade panels are mainly used to cover blank sections on buildings, e.g. ceilings. Glass thickness measurement The person ordering our products is responsible for ensuring the correct measurement of glass thickness, depending on the application, according to the applicable technical regulations and standards. • Combinations with different glass thicknesses are possible. • Dimensional tolerances, see DIN EN 572-8 • Tolerance for the emissivity of the coatings: + 0.01 (as per RAL quality criteria) • Tolerance for the Ug value: + 0.1 W/m²K (as per RAL quality criteria) • Tolerance for the g value: ± 0.02 (as per RAL quality criteria) • The functional values given here for the glass products were determined with calculation software validated and certified by ift Rosenheim (Test Report No. 41041462). The data for the software was based on functional values on standard structures determined according to the relevant and currently valid test standards by correspondingly accredited test institutes. Formats and combinations deviating from this can lead to a change in individual functional values. • The light and radiation-related physical data are calculated or measured values that may fluctuate by ± 2 or 3% depending on the glass manufacturer and the glass thickness, as well as unavoidable production tolerances. The data shown here are therefore subject to change.
