Viracon Unveils ClearPoint™

New Insulating Glass System Increases Transparency of Exterior WallsOwatonna, MN – Viracon, the nation’s leading single-source architectural glass fabricator, introduces ClearPoint™ - a point-supported insulating glass system that increases the transparency of glass façades.

Specifically engineered to provide building designers with greater flexibility, ClearPoint allows architects to maximize clear openings and enhance aesthetics, delivering a clean, contemporary look both inside and out.

"We’re very excited to provide this new offering to our customers," says Kevin Anez, Director of Marketing & Product Management for Viracon. "It not only offers architects greater design flexibility, but it impressively optimizes curtainwall and overall building performance."

Architectural glass is traditionally supported by securing its edges, but building designers have been seeking out solutions that increase the transparency of exterior walls. ClearPoint by Viracon is one of those solutions – reducing the amount of framing material making contact with the glass, providing a more elegant result for building interiors and exteriors.

Architects who specify ClearPoint can optimize performance with Viracon low-E coatings and/or silk-screen options. For additional peace of mind, ClearPoint offers heat soaked glass and a limited 10 year insulating glass warranty.
