How is condensation eliminated on the windows of Schloss Elmau, for example


Condensation is eliminated IN the windows through the manufacturing process use of dry air or argon along with a desiccant to make sure the dewpoint is below any temperature the window will experience. Condensation ON the window interior is eliminated by producing a window with sufficient R-Value insulation to prevent the interior layer of glass from getting colder than the interior building dewpoint.
