Comfort from every angle

The Multi Comfort concept is designed to deliver every kind of comfort, in any kind of building, anywhere in the world. And always in a sustainable and economical way.

Thermal Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings keep themselves at an optimal temperature using very little energy. They’re neither too hot nor too cold – so we can function comfortably, whatever we’re doing.

Visual Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings bring the outdoors in. They maximize daylight to create the right amount of light for specific tasks – whether it’s reading, performing surgery or working out at the gym.

Acoustic Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings have well-balanced sound environments. They actively protect us from unwanted exterior noise, and enhance those sounds that we do want to hear.

Indoor-Air Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings provide a constant supply of fresh, clean air. This creates an optimally healthy environment for us and reduces the impact of harmful pollutants.

Saint-Gobain has supported the Municipality of Caravaggio in the renovation of the primary school of Masano village, according to Multi Comfort program. The school had been closed in 2014 due to anti-seismic inadequacy, forcing pupils and teachers to move elsewhere. This renovation has transformed a 1950s building into the first Multi Comfort school in Italy: an exemplary building that guarantees an optimal balance between energy efficiency, sustainability, safety and comfort.

Saint-Gobain has supplied materials for transparent and opaque envelope, partition walls, ceilings, floors and pipe systems. Saint-Gobain has also provided to the Municipality a technical consultancy service for design and installation phases. The result is a public-private partnership and also a Corporate Social Responsibility case study, that highlights the engagement of Saint-Gobain with local community, as one of Isover plants is located in a nearby village.
