Contemporary building projects that use insulating glass units (IGUs) in their facades typically adhere to obtaining raw float glass with a standard size of 96" x 130". A larger size, referred to as full size, of 100" x 144" is also available from most architectural glass manufacturers.
However, some of the world’s most dramatic and visually-breathtaking buildings being designed today involve oversized glass – one of today’s most popular design trends. In response to the demand for even bigger expanses of glass, Vitro now offers Titan oversized glass at an industry-leading maximum size of 130" x 240" in heavy thicknesses of 8mm and 10mm.
While it’s gotten easier to specify large and oversized glass units, there are several factors that need to be considered to ensure a successful project. Visit the Glass Education Center to refresh your knowledge of considerations like wind load, thermal stress, weight and more.
