The curtain wall method of glazing allows glass to be used in large uninterrupted areas creating consistent attractive facades. The flexibility in choice of GLASS products allows the designer to control every aspect of the performance from thermal to solar considerations and ultimately the design statement for the building. With so much glass being used in a curtain wall the solar-gain can be high unless it is controlled and we can offer high light-transmission with solar-control properties and retain the natural look with neutral appearance glass products.
At the other extreme we can restrict light and solar gain in varying proportions and add colour or reflection into the products. For those areas covering floor slabs or office services we can have the Ug value enhanced with additional insulation fitted directly to the rear of the panels. Most products are available in impact resistant forms to allow the glass to be used at low levels, as a barrier and for security.
