Changes in architectural requirements and the development of structures that can be employed yielded large-scale, undivided, homogenous surfaces. Due to its suitable thermal technological properties, we primarily recommend the use of three-layered heat insulating glass structures. In all cases, we custom design the door or window to fit the given building, thus the range of available sizes is quite broad. They can be as tall as 3.1 m, with the option to manufacture a glass pane that is up to 5-5.5 m wide. With design, the ability to install it is an important consideration; in case of such large sizes, this requires special solutions. Alongside the application of numerous unique cranes, the use of high capacity mobile cranes might be warranted as well.
Even when the layers are of varied sizes, these structures can still be implemented; we regularly manufacture “skirted” heat insulation glass, where the exterior (or optionally, any) layer is larger, thus it can overlap the structural supports that are required for the construction. We can manufacture these glass structures not only from flat, but also from curved glass. In case of heat insulating glass, the tempering or lamination of glass is not mandatory, but it is recommended for large sized glass panes.
An important accessory of a glass façade is shading technology, providing protection against summer heating. Glass equipped with a special sun protection coating can be employed as well; this can reduce investment and maintenance costs in engineering. A proportion of these coatings possess higher reflectivity indices (reflective properties) than normal glass.
We can manufacture our heat insulating glass in varied sizes and shapes, from simple angular shapes all the way to arced or completely amorphous forms.
