Our commercial sector manager, Phil Savage, discusses the advent of structural glazing…
Whether it’s a full glass façade or a more modest floor-to-ceiling window, structural glazing systems offer architects and installers the design flexibility to blend the desirable aesthetics of glass with the functionality of other traditional building materials.
As well as being a popular choice among architects, structural glazing can also offer building occupiers numerous benefits too.
Modern systems, like Pilkington Planar™
, combine a range of properties, like solar control, self-cleaning and low-emissivity, all while allowing vast amounts of light into the room. This creates a comfortable and spacious environment, without contributing to heightened energy bills or carbon footprint.
