The glass industry is never static, and we at Gilbert Glass are obliged to monitor and follow these trends. However, despite certain developments, many glass problems remain unresolved. Home owners and construction agents complain that, at times, it is extremely difficult to replace a window without damaging surrounding interior. Others claim that the thermal performance of many glass products has to be improved. We at Gilbert Glass think that many of these questions emerge simply because individuals and professionals are unaware of the recent changes in the glass manufacturing business. This is why we want to fill the existing knowledge gap and provide our readers with updated information regarding glass industry inventions.
First and foremost, construction agents and home owners should not worry about the damages posed to the interior, when the original window is being replaced. With new glass and window-making technologies, it is possible to fit new windows into the existing openings, especially where the exterior window frame is still functional, without any physical damage. The use of an upgraded sash will increase the energy efficiency of new glass windows.
The thermal performance features of glass have improved considerably, with the help of novel insulation materials. Gilbert Glass is confident that new insulation materials, based on form glass pieces, possess a perfect air transmission and sound isolation capacity. All you need is just to open your eyes and look around, to see the diversity of glass improvement opportunities.
Want a glass house? You can have it without any difficulty, if you choose quality modular panels made of recycled glass. Recently, glass industry professionals have developed a structurally new glass material, based on the complex physical network of small glass beads and air pockets inside them. When mixed with resin, these beads create a remarkably strong material that can be used for your home walls. If you still have questions or still look for something really new, just make a call and we will surprise you!
