Decorative Glass

Architectural glass, such as tinted and pattern glasses, add a decorative component to glazing design.  Bent Glass Design offers many different possibilities in the area of specialty glass.

Safety Glass

Safety glazing was first regulated in the late 1970’s when the Consumer Product Safety Commission standard 16CFR Part 1201 became a federal regulation.  Today tempered or laminated glass can be used in safety glazing applications to reduce the possibility of severe cutting or piercing injuries after breakage.

Security

Laminated glass can be constructed to provide forced entry, ballistics, blast, and severe weather protection.  The number of glass plies and the thickness of the interlayers will depend on the intended use of the product.  The key benefit of laminated glass is its ability to retain glass fragments after breakage.  Additionally, broken laminated glass serves as a barrier to entry.  Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and ASTM International standards provide the basis for glazing performance in each of these applications.

Sound control

Laminated glass interlayers can help to improve sound control over the entire frequency range.  In addition, monolithic glass lites, as well as laminated glass lites, can become part of an insulating glass unit to further improve sound attenuation.

There are other advantages to bent insulating glass in the area of energy efficiency.  Insulating glass improves thermal performance and can save you a significant amount of money on your energy bills.
