Fire-resistant glass offers various levels of protection, which is measured in terms of Integrity (i.e. the time the glass remains intact in a fire), and Insulation (i.e. the amount the glass will limit the temperature rise on the non-fire side).
Spandrel panels were developed for use in screens and facades, where it is required to either match a non-vision spandrel panel to the vision area of glazing, or to provide a contrast to the vision area glazing.
The increased use of glass in architecture today makes it vital to consider the well being of a building’s occupants. Solar glass has a number of properties that work well in every type of climate. In hot climates, the glass works to reduce solar heat gain. In temperate climates it is used to balance solar control with high levels of natural light.
Ellipsis can offer a high quality acoustic laminated glass that offers excellent noise reduction without compromising on light transmittance or impact performance.
