4 Great Architectural Glass Panels to Use for Your Projects

07-07-2020

Architectural glass panels are made to protect and insulate. They’re used widely in complex architectural buildings and structures, giving it structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. Property developers and construction companies benefit from establishing partnerships from suppliers of architectural glass.

 

If you're planning a new architectural project, here are some types of glass that you can use:

 

Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is one of the stronger types of glass thanks to its dual layers of glass bonded together under intense heat and pressure. Interlayers such as PVB are normally used to bind two sheets together, adding to their strengths. The interlayer is meant to hold everything together, even in the event of breakage, so that the glass parts do not shatter and fall apart. Depending on the interlayer material, laminated glass can also be given additional soundproofing.

 

Tempered Glass

Tempered glass is strengthened by getting heated to increase its surface compression. The higher the compression, the stronger the glass. Special procedures are undertaken to ensure that just the right amount of heating is applied so that it doesn’t break apart from becoming too brittle.

 

Insulating Glass

This type of glass is normally used in windows to provide additional protection from sunlight and heat. The glass is enforced with glazing elements, providing both thermal insulation and noise reduction. Between the layers of glazing and the glass itself is a layer of gas. Depending on the type of gas contained in the glass, it can have energy conservation properties that help you save on utility costs.

 

On top of these varieties, you can also choose glass based on its aesthetic design. Some examples include glass blocks, prism glass, and crown glass, though these are generally considered to be more old school.
