Glass Sustainability in Construction
In the past, the words “glass” and “sustainability” would rarely be spoken in the same sentence. Everyone knew how easily heat could pass through glass, which always resulted in either living through extreme heat, or cranking up the air conditioning and paying the price. Fortunately, glass has come a long way and is now a beautifully sustainable option for construction.
New Manufacturing Techniques
Glass isn’t manufactured the same way it was in previous years. What makes it sustainable are the technical procedures used to keep it energy efficient. This includes double glazing, coating, and laminating. These processes prohibit the heat transfer once standard in glass features.
Energy-efficient or not, glass is known as one of the most versatile materials for incredibly beautiful designs. Now that’s it’s so sustainable, we are able to use it more widely in building projects. Looking around, you may notice glass being incorporated into building designs more and more and in larger aspects. Whether you have a large space or a small space, we can procure and install a unique design that will make your property look amazing.
Reduced Energy Use
With the natural light that comes through your glass, you could reduce energy use even more. Depending on your building’s layout, the sunlight could reach far into the building, reducing energy consumption further.
