There are many different types of glazing, from single glazed to triple glazed and with a range of technical glass solutions to enhance the functionality of glazing. Glass specification should be considered carefully and by an expert, to ensure the glass is suitable for the environment it is going into.
Living Etc included a ‘experts insight’ column in their latest issue, discussing the considerations of glazing to create light-filled interior designs. One of the main things IQ advised on was technical glass specification, such as solar control coatings which should be applied to any large or south-facing glass units to combat solar gain and help to prevent overheating in the warmer months.
All of the IQ Glass glazing solutions are fully thermally broken, and our insulated glazing systems are manufactured with a low e coating as standard. This ensures comfortable living temperatures are achieved and highly glazed spaces can be used all year round. Technical glass solutions can be used to reduce heating and cooling costs in the long term and there are also glazing options to reduce noise pollution in urban areas by specifying acoustic sound reduction glass.
