Architectural glass is increasingly required to perform both a decorative and structural role in today’s built environment. The glass we see around us in shopping centres, hotels and sports & leisure facilities is not only designed to be aesthetically pleasing but to act as a containment barrier, provide overhead shelter and offer secure protection.
Architectural glass is designed to react in such a way that should the load bearing pane fail, the remaining panes within the panel will continue to function as intended. In this way the glass barrier continues to function normally until repairs can be carried out.
Until recently, all architectural glass barrier applications tended to be manufactured from single-ply toughened (or tempered) glass of varying thickness depending on the required loading. However, ever-increasing safety requirements and advances in laminating technology have meant that toughened multi-ply laminates have become the material of choice for architects and project managers on all major construction and design projects.
Diamond Glass are proud to serve as one of the leading architectural glass manufacturers in the U.K. Our toughened laminated glass is manufactured by combining two or more toughened glass panes using specialist inter-layers and can be drilled, polished and notched depending on your requirements. Diamond Glass uses the latest CNC technology to ensure the accuracy of the final product. Decorative inter-layers bearing company logos or manifestation can be incorporated in to the final product. Whatever you needs, we can supply a fit-for-purpose architectural glass solution.
Our impact tested toughened architectural glass is ideal for use in balustrades, overhead canopies, external elevator shafts and entrance assemblies. Our products provide a safe and secure solution as well as being visually pleasing. For added peace of mind and safety, all panes can be heat soak tested prior to final processing.
We wouldn’t be the complete architectural glass suppliers if we didn’t also supply a full range of accessories such as hand rails, clamps, bolts and fittings to complete your project. Whatever your needs, our team are on hand to deliver to your requirements.
