Vitro glass maximizes daylighting, views, solar control for LEED-certified office building
This course will cover the basics of light and solar control glazing options while learning how to use Trosifol’s WinSLT optical and solar calculator.
In this sleek building, acid-etched glass at Volvo’s new dealership optimizes natural daylight to create a welcoming, well-designed space.
The Guardian SunGuard® SN 62/34 with red spandrel coated solar control glass products offers high natural light transmission and minimise the need for artificial light.
The project benefits from double insulating glass units, thermal insulation glass and solar control glass – all supplied by Guardian Glass.
The solar control glass for the fully glazed façade is Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral (SN) 70/37 HT, which has an attractive, transparent, neutral blue reflected colour with low reflection that is ideal for glazed façades.
Sandwiched between two glass panes is a special hydrogel liquid that turns opaque in sunlight, reducing its heating effect on a building.
Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral® SN 70/35 was chosen for the windows.
SOLARBAN, STARPHIRE glasses integral to one of world’s “most stunning” libraries
To address the global challenge of birds colliding with glass in buildings, Eastman, manufacturer of Saflex® PVB interlayers for architectural applications, proudly announces a collaboration with Rouven Seidler, founder of SEEN AG.
Energy Storage Europe (ESE) 2021 expands its industrial and commercial focus to now cooperate with glasstec – the leading global trade fair for the glass sector.
The European Commission announced its intention to propose by mid-2021 a carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM) for a few sectors, as a pilot phase.
The facade around the building is made entirely of glass, so that the workplaces of Triodos Bank employees are exposed to plenty of natural daylight and are strongly connected to the surrounding area.
New addition showcases acid-etched, solar control low-e glass by Walker Glass and Vitro Glass to provide views, bird-safety, energy performance.
Professionals from across the glass supply chain and wider have come together to discuss the industry’s aim to achieve net zero by 2050.

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.
Strong, resilient, with perfect thermal and sound insulation properties, 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.

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.
