OKALUX: Insulating glass for daylight planning

The functional glass with special inserts in the space between the panes is used wherever the highest demands are placed on the lighting conditions in the interior.

OKALUX products are often used in architectural and construction projects to address various building performance and design requirements. These solutions can help reduce the need for artificial lighting, regulate indoor temperatures, and contribute to sustainable building practices. OKALUX’s expertise lies in the intersection of architecture and materials science, aiming to create glazing solutions that improve the overall comfort and functionality of buildings.

OKALUX offers a range of architectural glazing solutions designed to meet various daylighting, shading, and energy efficiency needs in building design. Some of the different types of OKALUX products include:


OKASOLAR is a product line that combines insulating glass units (IGUs) with louvres inserted in a fixed order in the cavities. This directs the daylight selectively and glare-free deep into the interior of the building while protecting from direct irradiation and heat. These IGUs can help reduce the need for artificial lighting and contribute to energy efficiency. OKASOLAR daylight systems stand for a successful balance of sun protection and the use of daylight.

OKAWOOD is a product designed to create a warm and natural wood appearance using glass. It combines the aesthetics of wood with the functionality of glass. A filigree timber grid in the cavity serves as direction-selective sun and glare-protection depending on the position of the sun and angle of irradiation.. OKAWOOD is often used in interior design and building facades to create a distinctive look.

Benefits of using OKALUX

Using OKALUX architectural glazing solutions offers several benefits for building design and construction. Some of the key advantages of using OKALUX products include:

Daylight Optimization: OKALUX products are designed to maximize the use of natural daylight in buildings. They can help reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day, which can lead to energy savings and a more comfortable indoor environment.

Solar Control: OKALUX products provide effective solar control by reducing solar heat gain and minimizing glare. This helps maintain comfortable indoor temperatures and reduces the load on cooling systems, contributing to energy efficiency.

Energy Efficiency: OKALUX glazing solutions are engineered to enhance the energy performance of buildings. They can improve thermal insulation, reducing heat loss in colder climates and heat gain in warmer climates. This can lead to reduced energy consumption and lower energy costs.

Aesthetics: OKALUX offers a range of glazing options that can enhance the visual appeal of a building. Their products can be customized to achieve specific architectural and design goals, allowing for unique and attractive facades and interior spaces.

Sustainability: OKALUX products support sustainable building practices by reducing the environmental impact of buildings. They help lower energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to green building certifications and sustainability goals.

Comfort: By controlling natural light and temperature, OKALUX solutions create a more comfortable and productive indoor environment for building occupants. Reduced glare and heat gain can lead to improved occupant comfort and well-being.

Noise Control: Some OKALUX products offer sound insulation properties, helping to reduce external noise infiltration into the building. This is particularly valuable in urban environments or near transportation hubs.

Versatility: OKALUX offers a variety of glazing systems tailored for different applications, including skylights, facades, and vertical glazing. This versatility allows architects and designers to choose the most suitable product for their specific project needs.

Durability: OKALUX products are designed to meet high standards of quality and durability, ensuring a long service life with minimal maintenance requirements.

Customization: OKALUX provides customizable solutions, allowing architects and builders to tailor the glazing systems to meet their project’s unique requirements and design preferences.

By utilizing OKALUX products; architects, builders, and building owners can achieve a balance between aesthetics, energy efficiency, and occupant comfort, ultimately creating more sustainable and functional buildings. The choice of which OKALUX product to use will depend on the specific goals and needs of each project.
