Glass

Glass has long been associated with ideas of elegance and aesthetic design. And as time has passed, these associations have only gotten stronger. The inherent beauty of glass as a material, when combined with contemporary design sensibilities, makes for an irresistible combination, one that mesmerizes and enthralls in equal measure.

Clear Float Glass

  • Clear Float Glass is a high-quality glass with precise surface flatness which ensures 100% distortion-free vision owing to its superior glass manufacturing.

  • It has a crystal clear finish which ensures perfect clarity of vision, with both true and reflected images appearing very bright and clear with this type of glass.

  • Due to its superior quality of manufacturing of glass, Clear Float Glass has a sparkling and brilliant luster.

  • All processing techniques during glass production like insulating, glazing, laminating, thermal toughening, enameling, silk-screen printing, sandblasting, acid-etching, bending, etc., can be easily carried out on Clear Float Glass.

Features:

This float glass fulfills all architectural needs – be it for glass roofing, glass windows, greenhouses, balconies or canopies. It can also be applied in interior décor for glass shelves, furniture and even glass doors.

Available Thickness: 2mm–15mm
Sizes: Available in a number of sizes up to 4.88 m x 2.44 m i.e. 16’ x 8’. Larger sizes can also be produced, as per customer’s requirement.

 

Tinted Glass

Tinted Heat-absorbing Glass is a body tinted glass which absorbs energy from solar radiation. It, therefore, cuts down the sun’s heat, enabling greater convenience and comfort inside the building, while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the building from outside.

Features:

  • Tinted Glass

    Tinted Float Glass absorbs 30% to 45% of the solar heat incident on the glass surface – depending on tint and thickness – and thus reduces the quantity of heat flowing into the buildings, lessening cooling-load on air-conditioning and saving energy costs.

  • It is highly flexible in terms of applications, so architects and designers can now try and incorporate new design trends in their building.

  • Tinted Float protects against glare and allows less visible light transmittance, thus, creating a soothing environment while reducing harmful ultraviolet ray penetration.

Toughened Glass

Tempered glass is four to five times stronger than annealed glass of the same size and thickness against impact.Tempered glass has higher thermal strength, and it can withstand high temperature changes up to 250°C.Tempered glass is considered as safety glass. It is difficult to break and even in the event of a breakage, disintegrates into small relatively harmless globules.Tempering does not alter the basic characteristics of glass such as light transmission and solar radiant heat properties of normal glass.The glass surface after heat treatment has the same resistance to surface damage as annealed glass.Tempered glass cannot be cut or altered.One problem that can also exist with tempered glass is spontaneous breakage, where the glass can break for no apparent reason. Spontaneous breakage occurs when nickel sulfide stones increase in size due to repeated heating and cooling.

Tempering increases tensile strength, thermal shock resistance, and safety of normal glass. It also increases its heat with standing capacity. Because of these properties, tempered glass is preferred in applications where  strength, safety and thermal resistance are important considerations.

Insulating Glass

IGUs’ are basically multiple layered glass panes that have very dry air or inert gas between the glass panes. The glass panes are hermetically sealed. Any use of two thicknesses of glass, separated by an air space, within an opening, to improve insulation against heat transfer and/or sound transmission. In factory-made double-glazing units the air between the glass sheets is thoroughly dried and the space is sealed airtight, eliminating possible condensation and providing superior insulating properties.

Features:

Insulated Glass, often called double glazing, is a combination of two or more panes of glass spaced apart with a spacer bar and hermetically sealed with a primary and secondary sealant to form a single unit with one or more air spaces in between. IG units improve the thermal performance, thus significantly reducing heating and air-conditioning costs. IG units also reduce interior condensation in cold climates, and increase comfort near windows, thus maximizing the usable interior space.

By combining Low-E coatings, tinted glasses, reflective coatings, silk-screened patterns, laminated glass products and more, a wide variety of insulating glass configurations are available to satisfy a wide range of performance and aesthetic requirements. IG units can be fabricated to meet state energy codes, sound control requirements, seismic requirements, impact resistance, bullet resistance, and hurricane and blast resistance requirements. IG units can be designed to reduce heat loss and solar heat gain entering the building, with a minimal reduction of visible light transmittance.

Energy Conservation:

The table given below shows, how insulating glass helps in conserving energy in hot climate, as compared to monolithic glass.

Monolithic Glass

Insulating Glass

Monolithic glass such as annealed glass is a single glass.

Double glass such as IG, contains hermetically   sealed dry air space between the sheets of glass.

 It gets heated directly by sunlight.

Double glazing prevents direct contact with sunlight

When air conditioner is used inside the building, the temperature difference between the inside and outside the building is very high.

When air conditioner is used inside the building, the temperature difference between the inside and outside of the building is very less.

There is only a thin glass barrier to prevent the outside heat from coming   in – resulting in excessive loss of energy.

Due to convection, air circulates inside and acts as a barrier, preventing outside heat from coming inside and the cool air inside from escaping – results in energy saving.

A Part of this Insulated glass is best choice for Perfect Transparency, Sound Insulation, Reduced Infiltration,Reduced Condensation.
