Architectural Glass Cladding Benefits
Architects, engineers and facility owners alike praise glass cladding systems for their performance, durability and striking aesthetics. These materials also offer virtually unlimited flexibility of design.
Today’s technologically advanced materials are extremely durable even in the face of major weather events, including wind, ice and temperature extremes on both ends of the spectrum. Glass cladding retains its like-new appearance for decades, resisting stains, rust, corrosion and degradation. The protection this material provides against the elements helps preserve the value, appearance and structural integrity of any facility.
State-of-the-art glass rainscreens also create a highly energy-efficient façade, regulating temperature and reducing energy.
With an endless potential for customization, including 1440 dpi digital printing, silk-screening, solid color, colored interlayers, surface textures and more the aesthetic value of glass cladding is second-to-none, allowing a virtually endless possibility of design options.
Glass Façade Finishes & Options
QC Glass façades are extremely versatile in terms of structural design and finished appearance. Our unframed glass rainscreen eliminates visible perimeter metal and, with a minimal 3/8-inch joint design, you can achieve a true monolithic appearance on any structure.
You can choose from an array of finish options that range from silk-screening, solid color, colored interlayers, surface textures including acid etching to countless colors and coatings. We also offer the option for high-resolution digital printing, up to 1440 dpi, on the glass panels, further expanding your design options. With options for glare control, such and printing on the front surface, you can maintain the design aesthetic at obtuse angles previously not available. This same technology allows QC Facades to offer truly innovative options for printing glass cladding for use with photovoltaic solar panels, further enhancing the potential for energy savings and reduced facility operating costs.
