Criteria for Optimal Glass Performance.

Fabricated glass products can be chosen based on any number of criteria: to meet a certain color profile, to match performance elsewhere in the building, or for mechanical system performance requirements. Acoustic qualities can also factor in, as well as special requirements like bomb-blast, burglary/forced entry resistance or hurricane impact. We tailor solutions that meet your individual project requirements from best-in-class, global manufacturers. 

Glass Performance Information to Make Informed Selections

Key glass performance information helps architects and designers select the right glass products for their vision. Typical important values are: VLT (Visible Light Transmittance), Exterior Reflectance, SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient), SC (Shading Coefficient), U-Value and of course the color/neutrality of the glass, as well as OITC (Outdoor/Indoor Transmission Class) for control of exterior noise frequencies or STC (Sound Transmission Class) for sound attenuation of acoustics indoors.
