Glass has come a long way since its creation around 500BC. It is now key to success and functionality in modern architecture and construction, and its uses range from insulation to generic conventional windows and external glazing.
It is fantastic for so many more reasons than the above, and here at GG Glass & Glazing we wanted to share with you its most important benefits to show vital it is for any building project:
The amount of natural light that glass affords you is brilliant. Whether it is your office or retail space, a large amount of glass generally results in your bills being lower as the natural light will mean you will not have to use as much electricity to lighten up your rooms.
Research has shown that natural light can also increase productivity and improve your sleeping patterns, as well as digestion and various other health benefits.
Good for the environment
If used correctly, glass can help regulate your building’s temperature. Solar controlled glass especially improves your eco-efficiency, as it keeps the heat in and keeps the heat out as well as tinting to manage the sun’s rays. All these aspects of glass can impressively reduce heating and cooling bills.
Greater sense of space
By opening up your commercial area by using glass, the feeling of space can increase massively. Due to advances in science, laminated glass is now strong enough to be a structural material for your building, so your space can grow without walls, beams and other structural properties that would otherwise get in the way.
