OBSCURE GLASS OPTIONS
For privacy, pure style or to allow more light into internal rooms, patterned glass gives you a whole range of attractive options.
In fact, we offer many different patterned glass designs – from classic to contemporary.
Textured glass allows maximum light in while maintaining your chosen level of privacy or obscuration, and also forms an attractive decorative feature itself.
Solar Control Glass
Solar control glass can be an attractive feature of a building whilst at the same time minimising, or even eliminating the need for an air conditioning system, reducing running costs of the building and saving energy.
In hot climates, solar control glass can be used to minimise solar heat gain and help control glare. In temperate regions, it can be used to balance solar control with high levels of natural light.
Solar control glass can be specified for any situation where excessive solar heat gain is likely to be an issue, eg.conservatories.
All products are available in toughened or laminated form for safety and security requirements, and can be combined with other benefits such as noise control.
Reduces solar heat gain and offers high levels of natural light to provide comfortable and pleasant environments in which to live and work.
No matter where it originates, from railways, aircraft or factories, noise is all around. Future trend research suggests that traffic and noise in general will only get worse.
Noise Control Glass
The careful and considered selection of glass can be crucial in helping to reduce noise level and meet noise requirements.
How it works
The highest noise insulation is achieved using an acoustic laminated glass.
Glass controls noise by:
Reflecting the noise back towards the source, and
Absorbing the noise energy within the glass.
We can improve the sound insulation of glass in different ways - increasing the thickness of the pane, using laminated glass on its own or within an Insulating Glass Unit (IGU) - the larger the gap between the panes, the better the insulation.
