Reduces the CO2 footprint

 

Microshade¬ģ reduces the CO2 footprint in the construction phase by only having a footprint of 14.69 Kg CO2-eq per m2 MicroShade in A1-A3.

No Installation Requirements

 

Microshade¬ģ reduces the CO2 footprint by requiring no extra installation requirements as it is built into the insulated glazing unit as a passive solution.

Reduces CO2 in operation

 

Microshade¬ģ reduces the CO2¬†footprint in the operation phase by providing effective shading that minimizes the use of cooling.

No Maintenance

 

Microshade¬ģ reduces the CO2¬†footprint by requiring no maintenance and zero cost of operations due to its passive designed installed inside the window system.

Optimal Room Temperatures

 

Microshade¬ģ is designed to keep room temperatures comfortable in sunny condi-tions and create energy efficiency with an effective g-value of 8-15%.¬†

Plenty of Natural Daylight

 

MicroShade¬ģ ensures plenty of natural daylight with a pristine color rendering of Ra>95, promoting wellbeing and productivity.

  

Solar Shading with a View Out

 

MicroShade¬ģ is a passive solar shading that always allows for a view to the outside. With a View Class 4, promoting connection to nature and the outdoors.

  

Reduces Glare

  

MicroShade¬ģ is not a glare product but has been proven to minimize glare.¬†

Low total cost of ownership (TCO).

 

Microshade¬ģ is designed to keep room temperatures comfortable in sunny conditions and create energy efficiency with an effective g-value of 8-15%.¬†

No Maintenance and Operation Cost

 

Low installation cost, requires no maintenance or operation costs.

 

 

 

Lifetime As A Window

 

MicroShade¬ģ is a passive solar shading installed directly into the insulated glazing unit. It requires no maintance and has the same lifetime as the window.

Building Certification

MicroShade A/S offers documentation packages for DGNB and BREEAM, which are the leading voluntary certification schemes for assessing the sustainability of buildings.

DGNB

 

DGNB is the most recent certification scheme, referred to as a second-generation system. It was launched in Germany in 2008 and is highly comprehensive in its analysis of buildings, considering all aspects of sustainability. Several countries have adapted DGNB to local conditions, resulting in their own versions.

We have compiled a technical document for DGNB Denmark and Germany, where you can see how MicroShade affects DGNB criterias.

 

Documentation package can be found in downloads:

DGNB Denmark 2016, 2020, and 2023

DGNB Germany 2018 and 2023.

BREEAM

 

BREEAM is a British sustainability certification scheme for buildings established in 1990 and is utilized in more than 75 countries. Some countries, such as Germany and Norway, have tailored BREEAM to suit their local conditions, resulting in their own versions. We have compiled a technical document for BREEAM, which outlines how MicroShade impacts its criteria.
