• Jebsen Building Products’ new ways to save energy

    17 April 2012

    Jebsen Building Products recently announced the release of a new see-through window insulator, Inflector, to energy-conscious office and home owners who want to improve thermal comfort and minimise the cost of cooling in summer.

    Windows are critical for day lighting and ventilation, but they are also the weakest part of the building envelop in terms of heat transfer. Originally designed by NASA for window shielding of the space shuttle, Inflector prevents heat transfer through windows, reduces glare and ultraviolet rays.

    With its unique two-sided coating, Inflector is reversible for year round thermal comfort control. During summer, the insulator reflects heat entering the building through the windows.

    The interior of building therefore remains cool, reducing the need for air conditioning. During the winter, the insulator prevents heat from leaving the building via the windows, keeping one warm even on the coldest of days.

    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.


    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
