Our contribution

According to the BREEAM technical manual, glass itself is considered as a non-volatile organic compound (VOC) emitting product, which implies that no testing report is required unless organic-based coatings, binders or sealants are used in their production or finishes. For coated glass used in facades and windows, the coating is not in contact with the indoor air as the coating is placed on the interior face of the glazing. Glass is therefore ideal for use in green building.

In addition, glass used as windows or openable facades contributes to the potential for meeting the natural ventilation criterion. Indeed, depending on occupant needs and climatic scenarios, openable windows can help to provide fresh air entirely via natural ventilation.
