OKAWOOD™Insulating Glass with a wooden interlayer

At a glance

Synthesis between classical and modern construction materials

OKAWOOD™ is a successful synthesis between classical and modern construction material - wood and glass – to create insulating glass units. High-quality "dark red meranti" or lighter colored abachi wood is fixed as a grid in the cavity. Laminated wood veneers are also available. The delicate wooden bars, with a visible width of 7/16", are supported at intervals of 19 11/16" to 23 5/8" by vertical supporting bars. The wooden insulation grid acts as a solar protection element and allows the warm tint of daylight to enter between the bars. The wood used comes from farms and is not stripped from natural forests.

OKAWOOD™ Structure

Outer pane tempered float glass or heat strengthened laminate (thickness according to the static requirements) Cavity 45/64" with sawed, unfinished wooden Meranti wooden insulation grid. Please inquire about other types and finishes. Inner pane float glass with i Plus e low-E or solar control coating (thickness according to static requirements). The material used for the interlayer of the insulating glass units is a natural product. For this reason, deviations in color, brightness and alignment of the wooden louvers may occur.

Glass dimensions and weight

  • Height up to 137 51/64", width up to 66 59/64"
  • Approximately 1 lb/ft2

OKAWOOD™ is especially designed for exterior application to create the desired sun shading. The wooden grid acts as a solar protection element and allows a warm tint of daylight to enter between the bars. However decorative and functional interior applications such as partition walls are possible.
