| Sustainability and the circular economy are increasingly influencing work and production processes in glass manufacturing, too.
| Noise as one of the major pollutants in our environment and society
| The laserbird is a universal tool, making it the perfect choice for a broad portfolio of customers, applications and glass products.
| Solar glass is used as glazing for solar devices like photovoltaic modules and solarthermal collectors. In many dry regions dust accumulation lead to extreme efficiency losses due to soiling, up to -80% in 6 month.
| Contemporary architectural transparency (understood as the optical property of the material) is constantly being redefined and, over the last decade, new design trends have developed related to transparent façades in architecture.
| The integration of smart glazing and adaptive façade in buildings can lead to large performance improvements and added functionality compared to conventional static building envelope systems.
| Insulating glass has been used around the world in applications ranging from family homes to high-scale construction.
| As a modern society, we’re spending about 90% of our time indoors – at home, in offices or commuting. How is it possible to get access to daylight, when we can’t naturally be outside? By making buildings more transparent.
| Fundamentals of Sound Transmission and Acoustic Interlayers
| The reduction of greenhouse gases is one of the most important goals of the international climate policy. Today, roughly one third of all greenhouse gas emissions is created by urban population.
| This paper will discuss the psychology of perception, threshold, and emotion in interior glass design.
| Windows have always been at the intersection of various technologies and architectural processes that evolved in parallel and often intertwined.
| Curved insulated glass units formed by tempered bending or annealed slumped bending offer a bold expression of architectural design with transparency and energy efficiency.
| New generation thin, lightweight and damageresistant glass seems to be the optimal material for extremely deformable structural elements for façades and building skins.
| Re-thinking the life-cycle of architectural glass brings together recent research into the economic, technical, environmental and logistical viability of closed-loop construction glass recycling.
| Daylight control is a main resource of energy saving in buildings. Daylight control systems with mirror optics have the potential to save air conditioning due to the ability to reflect the solar rays back into the sky.
| Along with the multifunctionality of the building skin, BIPV today involves a new aesthetics in contemporary architecture.
| There have several type smart glass, what is the difference for different type? How can you know that and choose right?
| Presented below are some of the special challenges facing the skilled glass-processing trades: many products are becoming smarter.
| Glass is enhanced with added functions to form an integral part of the building network. We are still in the early stages of development.
