Acoustic Performance



SGG SUPERCONTRYX must be installed in compliance with current national regulations and standards.
The weight of the glass should be taken into account when handling, as it is nearly twice that of standard glass of the same thickness.

SGG SUPERCONTRYX is sensitive to oxidation. The use of detergents and spraying of water is prohibited. Clean and soft cloths should be used for maintenance and if required, a conventional glass-cleaning product.

SGG SUPERCONTRYX must be stored in a dry, heated area (between 7 and 40°C). When it is delivered, the impact and "this way up" indicators should be inspected. If they are red, the carrier should be notified immediately.

SGG SUPERCONTRYX is produced in accordance with manufacturing standards BS EN 61331-2.
