Architectural Glass

What is Architectural Glass?

We have the capability to do a turnkey project for different types of architectural glazing and metals works to meet internal and exterior architectural designs and solutions. We have proven products, consistent quality and inspired aesthetics in all our delivered projects.

Architectural glass refers to glass treated with special glazing which toughens the material, making it ideal for building and construction applications. Besides being chemically treated, this type of glass undergoes safety glass techniques such as lamination and tempering to protect against hazardous breaks.

The Benefits of Using Architectural Glass

Architectural glass can be used for varied applications, including both aesthetic and functional purposes. Among the wonderful benefits of using glass are the following:

Architectural glass permits high light transmission. Mirrored glass panels, for instance, have reflective properties that help bounce natural light and brighten interiors. It transmits up to 80{b752aeebc2cf038fbc174713feb938b8bfdc6302438d4bf7ef394afc223980e6} of daylight minimizing extent of weathering or clouding. Because glass material minimizes the need for artificial lighting resources, it enhances the energy efficiency of buildings. In fact, most malls and shopping centres that seek to reduce their energy demand usually incorporate glass material such as glass doors, windows and glass railings in both their interior and exterior design. By using low-e coating and multiple glazing layers in glass, heat transfer is minimized. This reduces the flow of heat and the power consumption needed to cool down or heat up spaces, resulting in lower energy costs for airconditioning.
Architectural glass can be designed to minimizes ambient noise from external sources. Acoustically insulated glass absorbs the harmful effects of high noise levels and is ideal for structures and residential units located along busy roads, motorways, airports and train stations.
Architectural glass, when laminated or tempered, can be impact resistant. Lamination, the process of layering polycarbonate material in between pieces ofglass, creates thicker, sturdy glass. Glass shower screens, for instance, are made to undergo treatment and tempering to harden the material and help become scratch and shatter resistant.
Glass comes in different varieties of thickness, design and texture and is currently a favorite component in architecture and interior design. Architectural glass has an inherent gleam which gives it a beautiful, eye-catching appearance. The transparent, ethereal glow of glass material lends sophisticated facades to modern-themed architectural works. It elicits a sense of openness because of the emphasis of the material on natural lighting and expansive views.
Mirrored architectural glass has a highly reflective surface which creates the illusion of spaciousness. It leaves interiors looking less cramped, and results in an open, more inviting ambience.
