The term structural glass is a generic phrase that encompasses a range of solutions characterised by a flush, frameless finish, usually with the glass itself taking on an element of the structural load. Often used for innovative and unique designs, structural glazing is a particularly strong area of Glaztech’s expertise. Using products like Hansen ThermoSpan assemblies can be supported with either glass fins or independent rigging structures and are used to provide glass box extensions as well as facades.
We have wide experience of designing, installing and maintaining different types of rainscreen systems to a variety of sub-structures. Requirements vary from building to building but Glaztech’s extensive knowledge of vented, drained and vented as well as pressure -equalised systems means we can provide an appropriate solution for all situations. Our understanding of products from innovative manufacturers such as Kalzip mean our clients can take full advantage of the very latest cost-effective installation techniques and stunning contemporary aesthetics.
Glaztech design, supply and install brise soleil and sun shading solutions to a wide variety of buildings. Benefits are not just restricted to preventing overheating – our systems can also protect occupants, provide passive solar heating from winter sun, enhance a building’s aesthetics and even generate renewable energy using photovoltaic cells. Design options include horizontal or vertical systems, fixed or motorised installations and a variety of materials including anodised aluminium, polyester powder coated aluminium, stainless steel and copper.
From totally glazed mono and duo-pitched roofs through to lantern lights and traditional roof lights, our roof glazing solutions allow natural daylight to transform building interiors. Energy usage is reduced by minimising the need for artificial lighting, whether using non-insulated systems for outdoor applications such as canopies or high performance thermally broken systems.
