TEMPERED GLASS

THE RISKS AND HOW TO AVOID THEM – 1LU

WHY YOU SHOULD SIGN UP!

Your building design has all the perfect
elements. A meticulously designed facade,
and unique architectural glass to create an
incredible indoor experience and provide a
brilliant, finished aesthetic. But if you specify
heat-treated glass, what can happen? What if
all you see are polarized lines running through
the facade? Heat treating glass invariably
introduces optical distortion. Learn how it can
be limited and how to specify it. This course
teaches the fundamentals of anisotropy
in architectural glass, and the reasons it
occurs. Though anisotropy is not new, glass
professionals are just beginning to address,
measure and limit its effect on architectural
glass by influencing glass thickness and
the heat-treatment process. As standards
are created and measurement technology
continues to evolve, learn first-hand how these
changes will impact your specifications in the
future. Finally, this course will address the
implications caused by Nickel Sulfide inclusions
and the reason that Heat Soak Testing is an
effective insurance strategy to mitigate the risk
of spontaneous glass breakage.
