Saint-Gobain Glass has launched Calumen, a free online glass configuration and specification tool and an updated replacement of its former CalumenLive service
It will provide new functionalities to help architects, designers, consultants, façade engineers, window fabricators, glass processors and contractors find and evaluate the most suitable glazing options for their project.
Calumen is a digital simulation program that calculates the required technical performance and “comfort” factors, such as minimum light transmission, maximum solar heat gain, high performance acoustics, low external light reflectance or a host of other options. It calculates the performance of any single glass or combination of glass types and thicknesses.
New functionality includes the ability to compare multiple glass types, duplicate previous specifications, render illustrations, view certifications and utilise a comprehensive acoustic database. As a cloud-based system, Calumen updates automatically, ensuring the next time you login, you have access to the very latest product information and technical data.
