    There's more to our glass than meets the eye…

    MULTICOMFORT buildings have high performance glass that allows you to stay cool in the summertime and keeps you warm the wintertime. Our glass also contains insulating properties that dampens outside noise, allowing you complete comfort.

    Floors designed for maximum comfort…

    Our specially designed floors are designed to stop the transfer of energy (conduction), heat or cold from the walls into air or water (convection) and energy emitted from a surface (radiation).

    Walls built and designed to last a lifetime…

    MULTICOMFORT buildings have efficient physical separators known as the building envelope. The separators can be seen between the interior and exterior of the building which also include floors.

    We have introduced this concept to MULTICOMFORT buildings as it enables the resistance to air, water, heat, light, and noise transfer providing you all-round comfort.

    A constant supply of fresh, clean air indoors…

    Our buildings are designed to minimise emissions of primary and secondary pollutants at source. We have introduced ventilation and air purification methods to help to control indoor air pollution.

    Designing for indoor air means you can enjoy the comfort of your environment with good ventilation, filtering both incoming and outgoing air.

We typically spend 90% of our time inside.

So the buildings we live, work and play in have a huge potential effect on our health and overall sense of comfort. But how often do we pause to consider how they actually perform?

Could you feel more comfortable in the building or room you’re in right now?
Just think about it for a moment.

MULTICOMFORT offers comfort from every angle – for everyone, everywhere, whatever type of building they’re occupying.

"Work Environment Survey, Saint‐Gobain and SageGlass, Malvern PA"

May 5, 2016

Nearly 65% of office workers are distracted by too much noise.

More Information on productivity

“The Business Case for Green Buildings”

World Green Building Council, 2013

Productivity increases by 18% with access to daylight.

Optimizing daily comfort

In buildings, access to natural light, fresh air and outside views has been shown to make people feel more energetic and inspired.

This typically results in higher test scores at school, better productivity at work and faster healing times in hospitals.

In medical environments, less noise has been shown to reduce blood pressure and stress levels, leading to better sleep patterns and even reducing the need for pain medication.

Good for building users and the environment too

Homes, offices, hospitals, schools or community spaces... MULTICOMFORT buildings are designed from the ground up to deliver optimal comfort for everyone, at all times.

As well as being good for us, the MULTICOMFORT principles developed by Saint-Gobain help protect the environment too.

All countries and climates around the world.

MULTICOMFORT
for everyone, everywhere

For the home

As a homeowner, you can use MULTICOMFORT principles to create spaces that work for you and the way you live your life. A living and breathing healthy home that helps to protect your family’s wellbeing and makes a real difference to your quality of life – as well as reducing your energy bills.

For business

Businesses gain an entirely new competitive advantage through a MULTICOMFORT approach. Salaries and benefits account for almost 90% of the operational cost of most commercial buildings, so even small improvements in people productivity can bring significant benefits to business owners. MULTICOMFORT buildings also have substantially lower running and maintenance costs, as well as having the potential to command better rental or sale prices.

Building for comfort

Because most of us undertake new building or renovation projects infrequently, it's essential to design for built-in comfort right from the start.

The MULTICOMFORT building standard brings wellbeing benefits to the users of any type of building, in any location and any climate around the world.
