Architects and designers are taking design to the next level by incorporating technology-advanced architectural glass into both residential and commercial projects. From LED glass to sound-absorbing glass, architectural glass and technology are coming together to conceive new and innovative design options.
Polymagic LED Glass
A conductive surface coating allows LED lights to be embedded into these glass panels without wires. The energy-efficient LEDs can be arranged into custom patterns. Available in five colors, the lights can be flashed or dimmed. The product can be laminated with many different glasses, including tempered, low-iron, and printed types.Courtesy Walker Textures
It’s been proven that glass with specific visual markers can effectively prevent bird collisions in buildings. This collection of glazing solutions has been designed to meet both bird-friendly criteria as well as the aesthetic intents of architects and solar performance targets.Courtesy PPG
SOLARBAN 90 glass is a low-emissivity glass that combines industry-leading solar control performance with a true neutral-reflective, clear-glass aesthetic. Solarban 90 glass has a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.23, visible light transmittance of 51 percent, and a light-to-solar-gain ratio of 2.22 with clear glass in a one-inch insulating glass unit.Courtesy Merck KGaA Darmstadt
