Glass and Sustainability

When it comes to building homes and offices, glass is considered the material of choice by architects and designers across the globe. It has numerous advantages and various properties which makes it ideal to use in most places in interiors and exteriors.

Modern reflective glass offers a high amount of flexibility and it can be used to make green buildings that help save on your energy bills, which is why it’s the preferred choice of architects.

For an architect, glass solutions are vital when it comes to building ‘smart’ and eco-friendly houses and business areas.  AIS provides a wide range of products that will help you find the ideal glass based on where you desire to use it as well as the functionality required. For an all in one glass solution while designing a home or office, reflective glass can be a smart choice. Our glass solutions come along with advanced coatings that can filter heat and radiation from sunlight, letting in pure light and no heat. Architects and designers find it a lot easier to work with modern glass as its endless benefits can be used to create elegant designs that are not only eco-friendly but also bring with them a contemporary feel.

Solar glass works in three distinct mechanisms namely reflectance, absorbance and transmittance. As a result, such glass can reflect, absorb and transmit solar energy and prevent it from entering your homes and office spaces. Replacing the glass in your homes can guarantee protection from (IR) Infrared and (UV) Ultraviolent wavelengths. By reflecting these wavelengths the amount of heat can be reduced within your home and even in an office building.

You can choose from a wide array of our solar control glass products such AIS Ecosense glass, AIS Sunshield, AIS Opal glass and many others that have different properties that come in use in various situations and for various structures. Overall, architects have at their disposal different types of glass that can be used to build comfortable and better living facilities. Companies who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint should opt for AIS energy efficiency solutions. Those looking for customized solutions can get in touch with our experts. They are well informed about all the types of glass that we provide and will guide you to the right solution. If you are an architect and are looking to provide clients with something extra ordinary, look no further than us and our glass solutions.
