Working with a commercial glass company on a project represents a partnership of sorts.
Details matter when fabricating a piece of commercial glass.
From creating an elegant custom shower enclosure to fitting seamlessly into an odd-shaped space, tempered glass can be cut into almost any shape your project demands.
Sketches are quite literally the blueprints of the glass components of your project. The same can be said about templates for specialty shaped glass.
In wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many public spaces and workplaces are now seeing measures to limit exposure between customers, staff, and coworkers to each other.
As those in the commercial and residential construction industry already know, tempered glass is the strongest type of glass that can be used. Basically, tempering means to heat the glass to extreme temperatures, and then rapidly put it through a high-pressure cooling process.
This procedure puts stress on the glass, which in turn produces tension that begins in the center of the piece and spreads out. The tension is then compressed on the outer edges, which gives the piece its strength.
Let’s take a “behind the scenes” look at the five-step process used to produce tempered glass.
As anyone who works with commercial glass projects knows, incorporating glass elements into the décor adds a bold touch of beauty and elegance to any environment.
With up to 40 percent of a property's annual energy budget dedicated to heating and cooling costs, anything that you can do to improve a businesses' energy efficiency won't just help it become more sustainable — but it will result in more disposable income as well.
Being that glass is still one of the most widely used materials in architectural design and overall décor, it’s imperative to work with a vendor that offers the capabilities to make your space or products stand out.
Whether you’re shopping for a new glass fabricator or just looking to see what capabilities are out there in the industry, here’s a closer look at some of the key capabilities any vendor should be able to provide.
When designing a commercial space, designers and contractors often focus on the actual shape of the space, thinking about the space and its furnishings, form, and function.
In addition to creating a perfectly functioning space with the typical tools, a commercial designer or contractor can elevate their design plans by incorporating colored glass products within the build itself.
You can use glass elements and glass statements in your design to add an additional texture to your design's texture palette, cast light into the interior in interesting, pleasant, or thought-provoking ways, to create semi-private spaces, and even to change the feel of your design, taking it from mainstream to modern or using beveled glass to create a more classically appointed atmosphere.
