 RENOVATE by BERKOWITZ

 

Revolutionary Window Retrofit System
 

Patented in the United States and Canada

 

Convert your single pane windows to create an energy efficient, triple glazing system without the commitment of a full window replacement!

 

The RENOVATE by BERKOWITZ triple glazing system saves dramatic energy lost through the windows without disrupting current tenant activity.  It is an environmentally conscious and socially correct choice.  A traditional rip-out and re-glaze creates additional landfill waste and is much more expensive.  RENOVATE avoids this and helps green the building. RENOVATE offers many benefits including:

 

                              ü       Improved thermal performance

                              ü       Considerably less cost then a rip-out

                              ü       Noise reduction / better acoustics

                              ü       No disruption of tenants

                              ü       Increased security

                              ü       Certified dealer / installer network

                              ü       Contributes to your LEED requirements

                                        (a minimum of 4 points)

 

      The area within 6 feet of the glass surface is uncomfortable. It’s too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.  Make it comfortable with RENOVATE.

      RENOVATE triple glazing system can be supplied with the same glass options of our traditional IGUs

      Trim can be customized for desired aesthetics

      Permanent Solution - no maintenance or mechanical required

 

Tested in a Series 1600 Kawneer, non-thermally broken, Curtain Wall System, single glazed, then with our Renovate System. 

 

*         The RENOVATE system installed with the existing Kawneer system demonstrates a 65% energy savings.

RbB Story

 

JE Berkowitz has over 90 years of glass fabrication experience, is ISO 9001 Certified, LEED AP Certified, Member of the Glass Association of North America (GANA), and a Registered Government Contractor (DUNS# 002283125).

 

The RENOVATE system has been designed to satisfy a growing demand in the marketplace for a feasible alternative to a traditional rip-out and re-glaze.  It has been in research, testing and development for over five years and was awarded a patent in Canada (No. 2,550,601) and the United States. 

 

 

Definition

 

RENOVATE is an interior glazing method of hermetically sealing a factory made insulating glass unit (IGU) to an existing monolithic glass window, with a special warm edge triseal, to create a triple glazed unit.  The basic component of the RENOVATE triple glazing system is the IGU, which is fabricated by JE Berkowitz in their state-of-the-art manufacturing plant with their top-notch machinery.

 

 

Edgetech Partnership

 

JE Berkowitz has partnered with the world-class company Edgetech, to offer their Super Spacer Triseal™ warm edge product as a part of its RENOVATE system.  Triseal™ has passed demanding industry tests (ASTM 2190; EN 1279) and meets ASTM E33 120.
