Saint-Gobain Building Glass launches online glass specification tool

Finding the right glazing products and evaluating the technical performances of your glazing specification is said to have ‘just got easier’ with the launch of CalumenLive by Saint-Gobain Building Glass.

CalumenLive is a free online and responsive specification tool, giving you access to the information you need directly on your mobile device, laptop, PC, Mac or tablet.

CalumenLive is the ‘new and improved’ successor to Calumen II, said to deliver a ‘more intuitive and fluid’ user experience for glass configuration and insulated glass unit composition. The new interface also enables the user to email the results directly from within the service or export it as a pdf document.

By using CalumenLive’s range of filters, users can search based on the ‘comfort’ factors that are most important to their project, such as maximising light transmission, minimising solar heat gain, achieving high performance acoustics, reducing external light reflectance or a host of other options.

As a cloud based system, CalumenLive updates automatically, ensuring access to the very latest product information and technical data.

CalumenLive is a free service and according to Saint-Gobain, registering an account at is ‘quick and easy’.
