The Future of Safety and Style: Reinforced Glass Walls

The Future of Safety and Style: Reinforced Glass Walls

Reinforced glass walls have the capability to transfer lateral loads as well as shear and compression forces. This can be achieved by a system of linearly supported glass panes that are bonded together with structural silicone.

These frames utilize setting blocks that are rigid enough to transfer forces while still being flexible to distribute pressures and allow for slight temperature deformations. This allows for a larger opening size than is possible with traditional steel frames.

LED Illuminated Glass Walls

The beauty of traditional stained glass comes to life with a heavenly glow in this beautiful LED illuminated wall decor. A radiant portrait of the Blessed Mother surrounded by words from the ‘Hail Mary’ are hand-applied to this stunning panel of genuine glass, creating a faith-inspired home decor and a heartwarming gift for a loved one.

This unique LED Glass product is designed to be integrated with any double glazed unit. It has the option of either a single or double strip of LED illumination that can be coloured or white depending on the effect required. The illumination can be controlled via an electronic control that allows colour changes, varying luminosity and flash effects.

Glass can be a cold and austere element unless counterbalanced with fabrics, colours and elements that soften and warm the spaces. Visual privacy can also be achieved with miracle glass which electronically transforms from clear to opaque at the flick of a switch. This type of glass is ideal for use in retail window displays, conference areas, hotel lobby glass and interior door/shop windows.

This stunning piece of hard-fired stained glass features a beautiful depiction of the Blessed Virgin surrounded by words from the ‘Hail Mariy’. Expertly crafted with the utmost attention to detail, this beautiful home decor is illuminated by built-in LED lights for a glowing display that is sure to be treasured for generations.

Floating Glass Walls

As part of the glass wall trend, customers are opting for moving glass walls that fold away. These flexible walls are a perfect option for homeowners who want to expand their living space into the outdoors or divide large open spaces. They offer a modern aesthetic that is adaptable to the way people live today and allow natural light to flow into interior spaces.

The glass is made from two pieces bonded around a tough interlayer of polyvinyl butyral. This type of laminate is used in car windshields and machinist safety goggles, but it’s also available for home windows, glass doors and skylights. It is stronger than regular float glass and resists breaking, fading or scratching. It can be coated with a variety of materials to create custom color and texture options, such as frosting or decals.

The lateral forces of the moveable glass were transferred using setting blocks. These were positioned at the corner details of each glass panel so that peak stresses in these weaker points could be avoided. The detail was designed pragmatically and the results confirm that this glass-reinforced steel structure is a viable solution for similar applications. This result is a substantial improvement over previous projects where the same load-bearing capacity has been achieved using full glass facades or steel-reinforced concrete (GRC).

Suspended Glass Walls

Glass walls are a great way to divide an office without compromising the flow of energy. They also allow employees to see each other easily and offer a sleek aesthetic that’s reminiscent of major companies like Google. They also let in plenty of sunlight, cutting down on energy costs. In addition, they can help reinforce social distancing and serve as barricades so that COVID-19 doesn’t spread.

Glass dividers can be custom-cut to fit your space, and they are a good option for offices that need more privacy. They’re more effective than traditional wall materials in reducing sound transmission, and they can even turn from clear to opaque at the flick of a switch. This type of interior glass is ideal for offices, conference areas, and arena skyboxes.

Curtain walls are a popular architectural feature in modern buildings, and they can span several floors or an entire building. While they don’t bear the load of the building, they must be able to resist wind and lateral forces. To meet these requirements, they need to be reinforced. There are a few different reinforcing solutions, including copper re-strip and Morton Strong Line. Copper re-strip is a braided copper strip that can be bent to crisscross your glass panels. These strips can be inserted between foiled shapes or next to lead came. They’re also easy to install and are suitable for small panels that have straight lines.
