I have selected some great videos for you to enjoy about awesome window installations around the globe. Prepare yourself for some very extreme buildings. Modern minimalism buildings I must say.
Glass is expensive and the biggest manufacturer of glass in the words is now Saint Gobain in France. Check out their website, they do an amazing job.
When you are an engineer like myself, you get to see some really awesome stuff being created. Cement and steel structures and the most commonly used building material these days. Photovoltaic glass is going to be the next big thing now. Enjoy the videos guys.
Today we are going to talk about the benefits of double glazing. We know that double glazing might be a better insulator even tough glass is not a good insulator of either cold or heat
But having said that having a double glass door or window is better than having just one glass door or window in your house. Thats advantage no #1
Advantage no 2 is sound proofing. So lets say you live in a bottom floor apartment in a very buzy road. The traffic will drive you MAD. Installing double glazing aluminum windows will cut the noise by more than half. If you really want to make your house energy efficient, do yourself a favor and install these kind of windows.
The third advantage is having more safety against robbers who can break in you house through a thin glass very easily but its 4 times as hard when you have double glazing installed. Now there is also a new technology which provides even more insulation and that is the gas in between the windows. This glass helps eliminate the rays from the sun.
We would like to thank Renergy Limited Solar for this cool feature today. Solar windows are becoming popular especially for those who do not own a rooftop, in apartment buildings. So solar film is a really cool alternative which serves 2 purposes. 1, reduces the heat because it serves as insulation, and no 2 it does produce free energy!
