| In the structural design of facade glazing, various types of loads such as dead weight, wind and climatic loads must be taken into account. In practice, however, there are many cases of damage that can be attributed to direct solar radiation.
| The main challenge in the design of the duplex façade was the high aesthetical performance that the façade had to meet.

Investigations on the Cold Bending Behaviour of a Double Glazing Unit with a Rigid Edge-Spacer Frame
| In this study, the bending process of specially-fabricated double glazing units (‘panels’) is investigated with a focus on a local instability phenomenon.
| This paper presents work undergone for a set of four high-rise towers, featuring 11,136 unique cold-bentpanels, hundreds of which are pushed beyond 250mm.
| The paper presents the results of FEM analysis as well as tests performed on double glazed units including Sikasil® IG-25 secondary sealing joints and SikaGlaze® IG-5 PIB as primary seal.
| This paper sheds some light on the challenges to build with high performing glazing façade systems (originally called curtain wall systems) while efficiently utilising resources and reducing its manufacturing embodied carbon.
| The goal of this work is to investigate the mechanical performance of VIG’s subjected to soft body impact and gain insight into the failure mechanisms of the VIG when exposed to dynamic loads.
| “Going ahead of the Curve” is what the advertisement states outside of newly remodeled, Class A office building at 160 Elgin Street in Ottawa, Canada.
| Research has shown that the general approach to determine the bending strength of thermally curved glass with the aid of the four-point bending test for flat glass according to EN 1288-3 is applicable.
| Glass can form and shape a space, creating transparent architecture that can make you feel closer to the outside world.
| In 2015, the bold concept of a curvy tower at 252 East 57th Street, New York, was presented to an audience at the Glass Performance Days conference. At that time, building construction was just beginning, and no one was certain such a novel idea could be realized.
| There are parts of the window inside the glass that play a crucial role in its performance.
| When people talk about the future of production, they can't do so without using the term "smart factory." But what is it? How does a smart factory work? And what does it have to do with OPC UA?
| Five commercial glazing system analysis and a project study show the advantages of using Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) edges to mechanically attach glass to buildings.
| Bent and tempered glass has long been of great interest to the market. The process of creating high-quality tempered bent glass has evolved over the years.
| Constructions at exceptional locations are often challenging but worth one’s while. Extreme boundary conditions and sophisticated demands of the client have to be considered.

| In the European Union, Member States are allowed to set minimum performance requirements to construction products available on their market.
| Unitised Façade System Designed with a Highly Transparent Façade of Low G-value Combined with Blast Requirements
| Building code requirements for wind-borne debris protection have been in existence since the mid- 1990s, and as a result, many glazing systems have been tested and certified to these performance requirements.
| Connecting glass with heat bonds is a way to create all-transparent glass structures. Two methods have been researched in theory and practice, glass welding, through local heating, and glass fusion through global heating.
