Glass Products For The Construction Secto

Glass strongly influences modern architectural design. The creative use of large windows, glass doors, roof lights, and atria, among many other applications, makes buildings and houses bright, airy, inviting and energy efficient.

Uses & applications

The main uses of glass in buildings and houses are, of course, the most obvious and visible ones: facades and windows. Today’s glass products for commercial and residential buildings represent highly developed technologies, nothing like the simple window panes of the past. Light, comfort, well-being, style, safety and security, and sustainability are among the benefits of today’s high-performing windows and glass building facades. The ability to control heat, light, and sound transmission to a high degree enables architects to design buildings that have a greatly reduced impact on the environment and dwellings that are quiet, comfortable and safe. Glass also finds application in interior decoration and furniture.

Glass in residential houses

Glass proves to be a very attractive and modern alternative to other building materials, such as brick, poly carbonate, or wood. The more glass is used, the more natural light enters the home. This makes the home even more pleasant and comfortable, and, with today’s high-tech glass options, this can come at no cost to security, safety, or environmental sustainability.

Glass in commercial buildings

Today’s glass technologies allow large commercial buildings to be energy efficient structures that make the most of natural daylight while protecting the environment and the climate and conserving energy.

Glass Fins

Glass fins represent the earliest form of structural glass facade, dating back to the 1950s French Hahn system used at the Maison de la Radio in Paris. Here 2-story glass plates were suspended and laterally stiffened by the use of glass fins set perpendicular to the plates at the vertical joints between them. But it was the Willis Faber & Dumas Building in Ipswich, England that popularized this emerging technology in 1972. In this curving facade designed by Foster Associates, multiple plates of reflective glass are suspended, providing one of the first examples of an entire building facade in frameless glass. This project inspired a diffusion of glass-fin technology in numerous applications throughout Europe and America in the 1970s, and continues to do so today. Glass fin-supported facades still represent one of the most transparent forms of structural glass facades, and are an especially economical solution at lower spans.

Glass-fin systems are quite simple in concept, utilizing a glass fin set perpendicular to the glass pane at each vertical line of the glass grid. The most challenging aspect of a glass-fin wall occurs when the span is too great to be accommodated by a single piece fin, and a splice detail must be developed to create a fin comprised of multiple glass pieces. Early systems used patch plates to fix the glass and fins together. Spider fittings are frequently used in this application today.

Glass is a transparent material seen by the light reflected from its surface. Thus, transparency in glass-fin walls is often compromised by the banding effect caused by the reflected light from the glass fin’s perpendicular relation to the glass plane. These reflections are highly sensitive to angular variation.

What is Float Glass?

Float Glass is a kind of transparent flat glass is shaped by annealing, cooling, hardening,, cutting glass panels with even thickness. These are formed on metal fluid from molten glass which is produced in a melting furnace at a high temperature with high-quality quartzite sandstone powder, soda ash and dolomite as raw materials. The glass liquor floats on the metal tin liquor, so it is called Float Glass.

What can do the Float Glass?

Float Glass has high plasticity to processing like tempering, hot-curving, laminated, insulating, and coated glass. We have owned the advanced equipment ready for your deep processing products.
