Walking into Steinway Hall is like entering a gallery where the world’s finest pianos sit on display as exhibitions of art....and Steinway agrees. The company touts each piano as a “masterpiece of craftsmanship and a consummate work of art. The STEINWAY piano exists to remove all barriers between the listener and the pure, uncompromised expression of the artist.” The same can be said for their New York City storefront, an M. Cohen & Sons project. Consisting of 23 glass lites, each over 100 sq. feet, the all-glass façade removes all visual barriers for the exterior foot traffic and allows the ‘uprights’ and the ‘grands’ to shine on display.
Sept. 22, 2016 - The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio is putting the finishing touches on a major retrofit, featuring a new Lamberts channel glass façade by Bendheim Wall Systems Inc. The vibrant, ceramic-fritted glass units rise along the building’s 10 stories and a 2-story-tall ‘lantern’ cupola. The striking colors of the glass are visible from a distance in the day or night, while the smart technical design of the system makes this project truly stand out by answering a number of unique design challenges. It is the first and only installation of vertically-unitized, multi-colored ceramic-fritted channel glass in North America.
Glasshaus Living, a Woodbridge, Ont.-based custom fenestration fabricator, will display its novel shipping container shelters at a pop-up marketing event in a wooded area near the Old Mill in a swanky part of Toronto.

June 30, 2016 - The Strasbourg Cathedral, whose cornerstone was laid in 1015 and completed in 1439, has been standing proud and tall for a thousand years; but since 1683, it was missing a large part of its stained glass artwork. That is until September 2015, when the clear glass panels were refurbished and replaced by stunning, digitally printed glass.
Coast to coast, Canadian glaziers and glass fabricators continue to revolutionize the urban environment with incredible achievements in architecture. Here are six projects that caught our eye.
Living in a steel box might sound Houdiniesque, but crafting a home out of a shipping container can be an escape from the ordinary. “There’s nothing odd about it,” says Christoph Kesting, a Waterloo, Ont.,-based advocate for social justice housing, who believes it’s possible to never buy anything new. “Whatever you want, you can find a used item somewhere. For those thinking environmentally, why not incorporate it into your house? All you need to do is buy a shipping container or three.”
Oct. 22, 2015 - The Centre for Food (CFF) at Durham College (DC) distinguishes itself in the highly competitive field of culinary education by bringing together culinary, hospitality, event management, food science, and agricultural and horticultural programs in a state-of-the-art facility for “field-to-fork” culinary education. 
Specifying glass using good, better or best options is a basic concept that can be instrumental in the selection and design process. Various considerations for your glass selections will include safety, energy, loads, and security for a basic system, and can be improved with specialty high performance products to address sound, glare, aesthetics, and performance concerns. These value-added products will differentiate your project to exceed common expectations and would be better/best options.

Vinyl does not really burn. It certainly melts and deforms under sufficient heat and, when heated, releases enough heat to fail standard combustibility tests, but it doesn’t burn in the sense of being consumed by flame and releasing hot particles and flaming brands that spread fire to other areas.
April 29, 2015 - Bendheim’s Channel Glass Wall Systems have been named the Architizer A+ Jury Award Winner in the prestigious competition’s Building Products category.
