The Entry canopy at the High Museum is made of laminated glass supported by stainless steel spider fittings that transmit the weight of the roof to cantilevered steel beams.
Tempered Glass is glass that is reheated and rapidly cooled, which causes it to break into pea-sized pellets.
Heat-Absorbing Glass(actinic glass) is tinted to absorb a high degree of solar radiation, and thus, it transmits less solar heat and glare into building. It is usually bronze, gray, or blue-green in color.
Glass that has a coating applied on the inside face of double pane insulating glass that restricts thermal energy flow in a specific direction depending on placement
Glass that increases R-value (insulating value) and prevents condensation from forming on the glass.
Insulating glass (multi-glazing) consists of two or more sheets of glass separated by a hermetically sealed air space to provide thermal insulation, acoustical control, and an absence of condensation.
It can be manufactured from almost any type of glass.
Glass that has an imprint on the surface with silk screened patterns of ceramic based paint.
The paint consist primarily of pigmented glass particles that are called frits.
Typical patterns are stripes or dots, but custom designs are easily reproduced.
With aluminum and glass curtainwall systems, the vertical mullions are attached to the floors or beams at every floor in order to carry gravity and wind loads
Opaque glass for covering the bands of wall around the edges of floors in glass curtainwall construction.
Plastic or Acrylic is often used as an alternate material to glass in skylights.
A structural glass wall is made up of tempered glass sheets suspended from special clamps, or spider fittings and are stabilized against wind pressure by perpendicular stiffeners and/or cables.
used to hold tempered glass in structural glass walls
Glass fins used as structural elements to carry glass gravity and wind loads.
