Sharing our glass expertise

Today’s modern architectural glass is much more than a transparent material used to provide us with natural light while protecting us from the elements. It can offer so much more: thermal insulation, solar control, sound reduction, safety, and security, … There are many options to choose from, both in terms of performance, but also of aesthetics.

Understanding how glass can be applied in a building to help meet the aesthetic and energy performance requirements, while contributing to the occupant’s comfort can be a challenge. Don’t worry, we have a team of experts in glass – in fact it is their passion – that love to share their knowledge. They have developed a series of articles and videos to help you better understand glass and how it is being used in many areas such as hurricane impact resistance glass, thermal stress management or spandrel glass types, colors, and selection. 

Here are some examples, but you can learn more on Thermal Stress Management, Hurricane Impact Resistance, Types of heat treated glass, Guardian SunGuard SNR 43 glass coating benefits and much more on the Resource Hub
