As the worlds first personalized ventilation window, Ublo is a cap for glazed facade to block up a hole.
It is a simple, fun, safe, and customized window. Ublo is a circular ventilation window which works without operating the glass part. Like opening lid of a bottle, one can turn and remove Ublo window in need of ventilation. By using less joints, hardware and inexpensive materials Ublo is also a cost-effective window.
Also, operable cover part can be manufactured by 3D printing so that material, finish, handle, additional function can be customized to meet the users requirements. Mosquito or air filter net can be installed on the fixed frame part to enhance that comfort of interior space.
UBLO has good thermal insulation performance even though there is no exterior metal component exposed. We optionally provide Aerogel, a translucent high-performance insulation material, to be placed in the operable part to prevent condensation. UBLO has thermal transfer coefficient (U value) of approximately 1.3 W/m2K, which is comparable to that of general low emissivity insulating glass.
One of UBLOs major advantages is the freedom to select the perforation location for air ventilation. Generally, by installing 2 UBLOs, one each at the top and at the bottom part, the height difference creates air pressure difference which in turn optimizes indoor air ventilation.
UBLO fixed frame is installed securely to the glass using structural silicon sealant. The operable part attaches into the fixed frame by a sturdy fastener that is enough to resist a harsh typhoon. UBLO obtained the highest-grade (grade 360 with test pressure of 3600 Pa) KS certification based on the KS F 2293:2008 test.
UBLO frame and gasket are delicately designed with water drainage details to achieve perfect water tightness. UBLO obtained the highest-grade (grade 50 with test pressure of 500 Pa) KS certification based on the KS F 2293:2008 test.
We tightly compressed EPDM gasket between the operable and fixed parts to achieve good air tightness. UBLO obtained the highest-grade KS certification based on the KS F3117:2015 test.
