Office of Fortum

Vantaa, Finland

The large curtain walling realized in triple ordinary glazing caused such a convection flow that people working at the ground floor were permanently sick. No convector, radiator or other heating system could eliminate the humidity and discomfort caused by the windows. Now, the building occupants are so satisfied with the heated glass made with Super Spacer® that Fortum has decided to replace glasses in various other buildings.
