Architectural Glass

  • Bended glass

    As the growing complexity of contemporary design, (e.g. variety of curved shapes), it has also led to an increase in demand of different shapes of glass.

    Bending Glass is a heat treated glass with a residual surface compression less than 10.000PSI or an edge compression less than of 9.700 PSI.

    • Feature
    1. Resist wind pressure, thermal stress or both.
    2. When broken, the glass fragments are more similar in size and shape to annealed glass fragment.
    3. Twice as strong as annealed glass from the same thickness.
    • Application
    1. It is used on both interior and exterior of building facades, corner windows, skylights, display windows and interior decor.
  • Heat Strengthened Glass

    Heat Strengthened Glass is a heat treated glass with a residual surface compression greater than 3,500 psi and less than 10,000 psi, or edge compression greater than 5,500 psi and less than 9,700 psi. This glass complies with stringent internationally standards such as ANSI 97.1, BS 6206 and AN/NZS 2208.

    Heat Strengthened Glass has a lower residual stress and is only 2 times stronger than ordinary glass. It is not considered a safety glass (if use in single piece) and if broken, forms large pieces.

    • Feature
    1. Twice as strong as annealed glass from the same thickness.
    2. Higher bending strength and more resistant.
    3. Heat strengthened glass offers good resistance to thermal stress.
    • Application

    When heat treated glass is necessary, CSSG recommends the use of heat strengthened glass for applications   that  do not specifically require a safety glass product.

  • Insulation Glass

    Insulation glass comprises of two or more layers of glass separated by desiccant-filled spacer and sealed with sealants.

    • Features
    1. Reducing the heat gain and heat loss.
    2. Preventing the vapor condensation.
    3. Helps in sound insulation and improves the acoustics of the place.
    4. Reduction in the amount of the direct sunlight and UV rays.
    5. Can act as a safety and security window, depending on the composition of glass layers.
    • Application
    1. Use in all construction projects which required strict control on temperature and noise such as office high-rise building, hotel, commercial center, hospitals.
  • Laminated Glass

    Laminated glass is produced by permanently bonding two or more layers of glass together with tough layers of Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) under heat and pressure, to create a single sheet of glass. When broken, the PVB interlayer keeps the layers of the glass bonded and prevent it from breaking apart.

    CSSG laminated glass is a safety glazing materials that is tested by TUV-Rheinland that conform to international standards such as ANSI Z-97.1, BS 6206 and AN/NZS 2208.

    • Features
    1. If broken, the glass fragments remain bonded to the interlayer, minimizing the risk of injuries.
    2. Protection from intrusion.
    3. Residual load + extraordinary strength + prevention from falling.
    4. 98% UV-control, one way or another.
    5. Could withstand bullets, blasts and hurricane.
    6. An excellent barrier to noise.
    7. Reduce heat gain from sunlight to lower air conditioning costs.
    8. Laminated glass is durable, maintaining its color and strength.
    9. Laminated glass is very easy to install.
    10. Transparency + visibility.
  • Tempered Glass

    CSSG tempered safety glass is obtained by heating ordinary float glass to its softening point (about 700˚C) and then followed by a rapid cooling that results in the glass retaining high compressive stresses in excessive of 10,000 PSI or an edge compression in excess of 9,700 PSI.

    CSSG tempered safety glass is a glazing material which tested by TUV-Rheinland that complies with strict international standards such as ANSI 97.1, BS 6206 and AN/NZS 2208.

    • Features
    1. Tempered glass is 4 to 6 times stronger than ordinary annealed glass.
    2. Reduces the risk of injury due to its nature of breaking into small and circular pieces.
    3. Tempered glass has a higher bending strength and is more resistant to impact.
    4. Ease of clean-up if they do break.
    • Applications
    1. Furniture and decorations.
    2. Vehicles windows.
    3. Frameless tempered glass door and shop front.
    4. Stair cases and hand rails.
    5. Escalator side and escalator panel.
    6. Shower enclosure.
