Low Iron Glass is manufactured with lower iron content than standard ‘clear’ glass and produces a much clearer glass structure with no green tint visible through the glass.
The use of this extra clear glass is especially useful in structural glazing where thicker or layers specifications of glass are needed. If using standard ‘clear’ glass in these thick, multi layered structural glass installations the resulting construction would have a noticeable green tint.
When using Low Iron Glass you can layer these thick units of glass up for use in structural glass assemblies and maintain the clear nature of glass, creating a clear and frameless glass installation.
Extra Clear Low Iron Glass is seen at its best in the construction of glass beams. These robust structural glass supporting constructions are required to have a thick glass composition to withstand the structural loads applied to them. By using Low Iron Glass the glass beams are clear, neutral and transparent. The same also applies to structural glass floors.
Low Iron Glass is used widely in listed buildings or in sensitive areas to reduce the visual effect any new glass installation can have on the original building and architecture.
It might also be advisable to consider the use of Low Iron Glass where you have differences in the glass specifications used on one façade. Where structural and framed glass installations are used in close proximity the differing thicknesses of glass used might result in a colour different to the glass. Extra Clear Glass reduces this colour to glass ensuring a more uniform appearance to all glazing.
