Top Glass 2019 surpassed all previous attendance records with over 300 glazing contractors, architectural glass fabricators, architects and other construction design professionals walking through the doors. They came to see 62 of Canada's top suppliers of products for the commerical glass construction industry and to take in a sparkling education program addressing green building standards, bent IGU seal testing, contractor certification and anisotropy measurement science.
Glass Performance Days has released a huge program of 180 technical presentations taking place June 25 to 28 in Tampere, Finland. Sessions are grouped into facade, market trends, architectural glass, glass processing, scientific, specialty glass and "poster presentations."
Here’s an advance look at what you’ll find on the floor at Top Glass 2019.
Anisotropy, as opposed to isotropy, means that a material exhibits properties with different values when measured in different directions. In architectural glass, anisotropy relates to a visual effect caused by the presence of polarized light, the birefringent property of the glass and the mechanical stresses in the glass due to heat treatment.
Building designers and glazing contractors are holding opposite ends of the same problem. Designers need a reliable method to evaluate contractors to ensure their technical expertise and good business practices.
It’s Canada’s largest real estate market, and it has rules all its own. Toronto codes and standards are finally acknowledging the importance of building envelope in overall energy conservation measures. Yet highly glazed buildings continue to be in demand and have to respond to the more stringent requirements.
