Innovative materials, which can be applied to the glass and glass structures, allow us to improve their physical properties and thus directly affect the quality of the internal environment inside the glazed objects. For us it is examined innovative material is again glass - its form - elements that exhibit extreme reflective properties and allows a significant improvement in thermal and technical properties of glass constructions. We use simple mono-cellular hollow spherical elements, known as the "Glass Bubbles". They are made of borosilicate glass which is resistant to water and is chemically stable. Now we can focus on translucence of daylight through micro-glass-bubbles. We applied Glass Micro-Bubbles like indoor thermal insulation in cargo container and researched indoor thermal in context with quantity of Daylight in interior. In the roof of cargo container is linear skylight and its indoor surface was coated of this innovative glass material. Our main question is: It is possible to use this innovative material "Glass Bubbles" - 3M in order to improve thermal, technical and fundamentally do not worsen daylighting parameters of indoor environment?
