- story by MaterialDistrict

SBskin developed and patented a series of novel glassblock configurations, with the aim of optimizing  their energy performance. This highly insulating glassblock is modified through a plastic thermal belt to be suitable for outside installations.

The innovation project proposed by SBskin is related to the development of multi-functional translucent components for building facades and roofs, made of highly-insulating glassblocks assembled in precast panels through an innovative dry assembly system.

The precast system confers high mechanical resistance. The dry-assembly system makes the dismantling process significantly easier for both panels and sub-components, enabling also their easier recycling/reuse.
