| The Vacuum Insulated Glazing (VIG) is a unique thermally insulating window technology that can provide significant advantages over the conventional insulating units.
| The Vacuum Insulating Glazing (VIG) is a highly thermally insulating window technology that outperforms existing insulating technologies.
| The combination of the double-skin concept with unitized systems made current typologies of double glazed units possible.
| The need for higher transparency in façades has led to the development of jumbosized glass. Until now, the almost jointless appearance of large-scale glazing could only be reached with laminated safety glass.
| Three-dimensional formed glass products, manufactured from flat glass, are experiencing rapidly growing demand.
| Curved insulated glass units formed by tempered bending or annealed slumped bending offer a bold expression of architectural design with transparency and energy efficiency.
| In the constant search for original designs that truly push the limits, many building projects in the Middle East have been driving global innovation in engineering and façade design.
| In the following we’ll be limiting ourselves to the production of single pieces and small jobs of identical pieces, with applications predominantly in construction (e.g. windows, curtain walls, doors, showers, mirrors, kitchen splash backs) and…
| This article reviews the history and current status of Vacuum Insulating Glass (VIG), and discusses future possibilities for this technology.
| Arup are consulting engineers for a series of recent projects involving curved glass: The High Roller observation wheel in Las Vegas and a revolving feature lift for the new Louis Vuitton townhouse in London.
| This blog post was written based on an interview with M.Sc. (Chem.) Santtu Jolkkonen, Sparklike's Service and Maintenance Manager, who has been working as technical support specialist for Sparklike over a decade.
| sedak GmbH & Co.KG, Germany, operates the largest insulating glass line in the world – about extraordinary glass processing and the role of LiSEC.
| Multiple glass options offer customized ways to suit different building needs.
| In August 2013, the LiSEC development team started a major project with the mission: redesign of the tempering furnaces in order to save manufacturing costs and at the same time increase the process reliability. Result: the AEROFLAT.
| A desire for more thermally efficient glazing systems has led the development of new proprietary triple and even quadruple glazed insulated glazing units (IGUs) to be used in some buildings.
| For the past five years, Nile Aluminium & Metals Company, or AluNile, has had very positive experiences with Glaston's first FC500™ tempering furnace sold outside Finland.
| Spandrel glazing has developed to a stage where more efficient insulation can generate higher thermal stresses than can normally be resisted by heat strengthened (HS) glass on which ceramic enamel (frit) has been applied.
| Thanks to on-going research and development efforts glass products can take on ever new functions.
| Finding ways to improve energy efficiency is one of the greatest challenges facing contemporary architecture.
| Frank Lloyd Wright's reasoning for the building design was that he wanted the Kaufmann family to live with the waterfalls, to make them part of their everyday life, and not just to look at them now and then.
