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.

Comfort for every
building & climate

MULTICOMFORT principles can be applied to any kind of building any kind of climate.

Whether you’re considering a home renovation project in Europe, developing new office buildings in Asia, planning a primary care hospital in Africa or specifying the design of a school in North America, you can use Saint-Gobain’s MULTICOMFORT principles.

This will enhance the health and overall wellbeing of the building occupants – in a way that’s personally, fi nancially and environmentally rewarding.

Always adapted to your
particular project

The precise prescription of systems and materials used in your MULTICOMFORT project will vary for particular types of buildings or particular climates, and also depends on the way the building will be used.

Building orientation can be selected to capture heat in mild or cold climates, or provide shade in hotter climates. Airtightness (sealing air leaks between the inside and outside) can be used as a means of humidity management in humid climates, while in cold climates it helps to prevent heat loss by enabling optimally controlled air management.

How the building or room is going to be used is also an essential factor. The main aim of a hotel bedroom, for example, is to provide privacy plus a comfortable night’s sleep– the ability to listen to the TV without disturbing other guests while remaining insulated from the sound of others. In a classroom, meanwhile, the main focus is on ensuring that students can clearly hear the teacher, concentrate fully, and be heard themselves.

Balancing building and users’ needs

The MULTICOMFORT approach is about balance: identifying and providing the optimum combination of comfort factors to provide living, working and learning spaces that we are happy to occupy – high performing buildings in which we function efficiently and feel good.
