To meet the challenge of ever-increasing energy requirements, the glass itself is one of our major focuses. Along with the thermal performance of the steel frame, the glass performance has the most impact on efficiency.
The days of single glazed windows and doors are probably over or at least limited for exterior products. However, the days of the more complex glass makeup's offer a palette of choices for today's functional building envelope. A variety of glass types can be combined in an insulated glass unit for thermal reduction, as well as, tint controls, UV blocking and sound inhibition. These variations are needed to help adapt to the requirements of modern architecture. Along with meeting the code requirements, modern glass systems offer options that can enhance the user experience.
