Glass is getting bigger. Do you know what to consider when specifying large or oversized glass?

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.
