Glass Buildings

If you are wondering where this amazing, colorful glass building is located then the answer is Saint-Cloud France and it’s a Sports and Leisure Center. It is stained and lit with pixelated color. That building is only one example of the incredible glass structures that exist in our modern world. Another mind blowing glass structure is the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing, China, which you can see in the picture below. 

There is no doubt that glass structures, even if they are not as sophisticated as these two, look a lot fancier, sophisticated, and modern. But that’s not the only reason why many buildings are now made of glass.

There are a few properties that make glass highly valued. For starters, it provides protection against heat or cold. Because of that, glass can save a lot of money when it comes to energy bills. Tempered or laminated glass makes glass difficult to break. Tempered glass is more impact-resistant than regular glass but when it does break, it does so into really tiny fragments to avoid deep cuts. Then, laminated glass is practically impossible to break. In case you didn’t know, the right type of glass can also be fire-resistant! What it does is that it stops or limits heat radiation for anything from 30 to 120 minutes.

Are you one of those persons (like myself) that are constantly worrying about bacteria and hygiene? I have good news for you! Antibacterial glass eliminates 99% of bacteria! Or if you are tired of your loud neighbors you can get acoustic insulation glass which highly reduces noise pollution in your home or office.

Certain glasses have incredible properties which can really increase the value of your home as well as your comfort. If you are interested in any of this, you can contact a professional glass company and let them help you out!
