Sneak peek, What you’ll find on the show floor at 2016 Top Glass.
Werner Wagner of Sika will discuss the development of a composite product comprising a glass panel, a silicone adhesive layer and a load-transferring metal panel that allows the use of glass in overhead as well as vertical situations without any visible mechanical fixings, creating a large uniform opaque glass surface.
Over the past few decades the use of glass and glazing on high-rise buildings has increased dramatically. More recently, as a result of increased industry recognition of the importance of energy efficiency, the trend is towards more energy efficient glazing systems. Common methods of improving thermal performance of insulating glass units (IGU) includes the application of high performance coatings, use of triple glazing or warm edge spacer technology, and installing solar selective films on or inside the units.
