Make Your Retail Store More Secure With These 2 Window Glass Types

In the present scenario, where competition is cut-throat, brands often find themselves in a rat-race to make their presence felt. This they can very well achieve by making their outlets aesthetically appealing. But with aesthetics, security too plays an important role.

Sometimes a pane of glass is the only thing standing between a burglar and your valuable inventory. Upgrading the security of your store is very much achievable by adding security features to your glass. Owing to the new construction techniques and value additions, glass today isn’t fragile. It has many advanced features to ensure strength, durability and sturdiness to fulfill safety requisites in retail outlets.

  • High- Grade Tempered Glass-

Tempered glasses are always stronger and safer. Hence, they are less resistant to breakage. Although, like clear glasses, they are also scratch resistant and can withstand normal wear and tear. But the major difference lies when they are subject to force. While a regular clear glass shatters in such a scenario, tempered glass is extremely tough and impact resistant. Even when the tempered glass does break down, it does so in the form of granules, thus reducing chances of injury inside your store. Therefore, they make for a great option to secure your displays and cabinets.

  • Laminated Glasses-

When we talk about burglary, laminated glass is always the first choice. The three layered structure of laminated glasses (the middle layer being usually a polyvinyl butyral interlayer which acts like a glue) makes them strong enough to resist penetration and gives you the ability to see more without compromising on the safety factor. Owing to its strength and other safety features, laminated glass is used in a number of applications, most typically for your storefront, facades and windows. High-grade laminated glass typically offers:

  • Protection against broken glass or forced entry
  • Bullet resistance

When used in the retail sector, breaking into the building with laminated glass isn’t that easy, usually involving a lot of efforts, a lot of time and a lot of noise. Hence, the use of laminated glass as a security feature has increased over the past few years. It also offers noise protection in noisy areas and areas involving a lot of traffic. In case of breakage, laminated glass tends to remain in its frame and hence minimizes the risk of injury. This is because of the interlayer which is made up of polyvinyl butyral ( PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate(EVA) that holds the pane in place. The chances of attracting the customers to your store increases significantly when you have security glasses to enhance the safety of your retail outlet.
Hence, out of all the window glass types, tempered and laminated are the ones that can enhance the safety feature of your retail outlet

Building an Energy-Efficient Tech Park in Bangalore: A Case Study


Bangalore is the IT capital of India without the shadow of a doubt, home to numerous industrial complexes, technological parks and corporate hubs. But what goes on behind the scenes of constructing an IT complex that conforms to ECBC rules of energy efficiency without compromising cost effectiveness or building quality?
As the leading glass manufacturing companies in India, AIS was approached by a leading developer of state-of-the-art Technology Parks for global IT, software and technology enterprises to help build the above-mentioned complex. At the end of the day, AIS helped the client build a world class, energy-efficient building with cutting edge glass solutions.
Here’s the story at a glance.

Problem
As a commercial building, the complex was curvilinear with the longer facades are facing East and West, while the other directions were blocked by service areas and toilets. A solar control glass was proposed to be used in the building with a VLT of 17%, SF of 23% and a good U-Value of 3.7.
However, light transmission was poor. So was the colour of the glass proposed initially.
Solution
In order to figure out the right glass for the complex, AIS carried out a Climactic Analysis for the city of Bangalore (which is located in the Moderate Zone), along with a whole building simulation using 4 different glass variants for a year involving Shadow Analysis.
The studies revealed that since Bangalore rarely had weather extremes, U value of glass could be modified. Similarly, due to the unique geometry of the building, there were barely any differences in energy consumption due to artificial means in the case of the proposed glass and the glass variants used in simulation.
Consequently, AIS proposed the installation of the Blue shade of AIS Ecosense Enhance high performance glass with a better SF of 37, thus reducing capital costs, and a U-value of 5.7 which was an insignificant change.
Results

  1. Cost savings: AIS Ecosense Enhance matched the initially proposed glass in terms of energy efficiency but at a significantly lesser cost.
  2. Operational cost savings: Since AIS Ecosense Enhance’s VLT was better than the proposed glass’s VLT, the need for artificial lighting in the complex was reduced, thus resulting in decreased use of electricity.
  3. Better aesthetics: The Blue shade of AIS Ecosense Enhance brought a refreshing sense of décor to the complex and was widely appreciated by the client.
  4. ECBC compliance: AIS Ecosense Enhance met all the strict energy efficiency norms without any hassle.

This was a significant victory for AIS and also the world of glass – thus reconfirming the critical role glass can play in building green buildings of the future.

Let There Be Light – Why Natural Lighting Still Matters

It’s said that there is no better lighting than sunlight. This has been known since medieval times, as is evident in the large windows of forts and castles of old. Today, entire buildings are made up of energy efficient glass in order to maximize natural lighting inside while also keeping the discomforting heat at bay.
Thus, even technology has become proficient enough to mimic the natural lighting through artificial means, as is the rage these days in many modern buildings, filtered natural sunlight remains ever so popular – all thanks to innovations in glass.

But why is natural lighting important?

  1. Better health

We have all studied in school how daylight is a vital source of Vitamin D. Given we spend more than 80% of our lives indoors, it is increasingly important to allow natural sunlight to reach us within our confines. Daylight improves recovery, sets the circadian rhythm and body clock, elevates the mood, and also improves attentiveness. Therefore, having large glass windows and facades is so important in homes and offices.

  1. Better comfort

So, while proliferation of adequate sunlight is crucial, for comfort, it is important to cut down on the thermal effects of this lighting. Thus, specialized heat reflective glass windows or retrofitted energy efficient glass in old windows help create a cool and comfortable environment for the occupants without cutting down on natural lighting. This way, glare can also be reduced for creating an undisturbed, serene ambience.

  1. Better environment

This is the era of green buildings, thanks to our society becoming more environment conscious. Energy efficient glass such as AIS Ecosense works towards reducing the building’s dependency on artificial lighting or cooling methods, thus invariably leading to reduced energy consumption. The more natural light inside the building, the greener it is.

  1. Better money savings

Taking heed of all the above points, it is easy to conclude that by allowing more natural lighting inside buildings through glass windows and facades, electricity bills can be brought down significantly. Merely tempered glass windows will not do in this case, as architects would tell you.
These far reaching benefits of natural lighting in our lives therefore point towards the rising popularity of green architecture. As homeowners and office-owners, we have the power to push our architects to construct, design or redesign our buildings in such a way that they maximize daylight and visibility while minimizing discomfort and energy consumption. In achieving so, glass windows and other applications like facades and skylights play an indispensible role.

Lacquered glass is a special type of coloured glass perfectly suited to interiors. It is opaque in appearance, meaning that it doesn’t allow any light to pass through it.

Glass Facades: Keeping your Interiors Comfortable during Summer

When one thinks of a modern home or office, the image of a huge glass façade often comes to mind. Today, it is not at all surprising to see so many homes and workplaces adopting this architectural element with increasing regularity. Not only does it provide an appearance of grandeur and makes the entire building look beautiful from outside, but also results in a great view for the occupants and employees from inside.
Float Glass
But the role of a glass façade is not limited to just that. By employing different types of glasses that have been specially manufactured with key functional and aesthetic properties, one can utilize the glass façade to create a comfortable ambience inside, especially during the harsh and hot summers. This often means two things: cool and bright interiors.
Creating a relaxing ambience with a glass façade
Since a glass façade allows huge quantity of natural light to enter the interiors, it is important that one ensure that this natural light doesn’t turn into an element of discomfort during the summer months. Sunlight, as we know, consists of various components like visible light, UV rays and infrared rays. While the infrared rays are responsible for carrying heat, UV rays are damaging for our health.
Thus, in summers, it is necessary that you use high performance glass to limit these factors, and allow only optimum lighting without the heat to enter your space. With AIS’ advanced solar control and heat reflective glass solutions, this requirement can be serviced efficiently.

It also reduces glare and eliminates UV radiation in order to create the perfect internal lighting and a healthy and bright ambience.
AIS Opal
AIS Opal is the perfect solution as an external glass for buildings. This hard-coated solar control glass prevents heat from entering the building by reflecting away most of it. This economical range of heat reflective glass also comes in a wide range of sizes and thickness.
AIS Sunshield
For the ultimate cooling effect, AIS Sunshield soft-coated glass is your go to solution. It is extremely durable, reduces glare, comes in eight vibrant shades (including the new Royal Gold), and keeps you safe from UV radiation.

4 Steps to Take If a Car Window Is Broken

Discovering that your car window is broken can be worrying. Whether it is a small crack or fully shattered, a broken glass must be fixed immediately. If not, it will give easy access to thieves to steal the valuables inside the car, make the car structurally feeble, and cause a whole host of problems. In an ideal situation, you must take the car immediately to an auto glass repair shop. But if you are not able to do that straightaway due to any reason, worry not. Here we have listed the steps that you can take to secure the car and protect it from any outdoor element until the broken glass is replaced.

1- Remove the broken pieces of glass: Start with removing as many pieces of broken glass as possible. Pick up large shards of toughened glass. Make sure you wear gloves while doing that. To clean the excess pieces use a shop vacuum. Place the hose close to the window seal. This will help remove any small pieces of glass stuck inside. Follow this procedure 2-3 times to ensure all pieces of glass are removed.
2- Wipe the frame area and window seal: Once all glass pieces are removed, use a cloth dipped in water to wipe down the frame area and window seal. The procedure may take time but it will help remove all the dirt and dust particles that may stick the area when sealing the window later. Dirt and dust may hinder your efforts of accurately sealing off the area, so make sure it is wiped off completely.
3- Seal the window: Once the area is wiped, use a packing tape to seal the window. Put stripes vertically across the window opening in a way that it touches the window frame. Then run another layer overlapping with the first one. Continue this until the entire area is covered.
Tip: Seal the window from the inside of the car to prevent peeling of the paint. You may also use cardboard in place of the packing tape, but the only problem with cardboard is that it will allow moisture to seep into the car.
4- Take the car to the service provider: The last thing to do is to take your care to a reputed service provider and get it fixed. You should not try to fix the window yourself and get it repaired only by experts.

Smart Glass: Uses In The Commercial Space

Glass is among the few things that has reaped the benefits of advancements in science & technology. The classic float glass used in display cases is paving way for toughened glass. Simultaneously, commercial and residential spaces are seeing a rising demand for installation of smart glass – a result of the technological prowess that has emerged since the turn of the millennium. Smart Glass is a commonly used term for an electronically switchable glass. From a clear, see-through glass surface to a murky translucent, and opaque perfection, this glass can change its visibility at the touch of a button.Float Glass
This feature has made smart glass extremely desirable in commercial spaces. With the benefit of controlling both privacy and energy savings, this is among the most popular types of glass for commercial interiors. Some of the ways to incorporate this glass include:
1.Walls & Partitions:
More light in a room makes it look bigger, while adding walls and partitions may cut out on that light source and make the space look smaller. Using Smart Glass to create partitions in a room is a smart move indeed. The transparent walls lend the room a suave feel, and in case one needs privacy, they may simply switch on the button, and in an instant, one gets cool walls around them. This works well for private cabins and conference rooms – regular transparent walls during the day, block opacity during meetings.
2.Building Façade
Many offices in India are moving towards maintaining a glass façade for a superior looking finish to the architecture. However, building owners know the serious costs of lighting and air-conditioning that are shelled out for regular day-to-day functioning within. Installing Smart Glass would be instrumental in controlling the light and heat travelling through the glass, thereby cutting down on costs considerably.
3.Restaurants, Salons & Spas
The hospitality sector can use this type of glass as privacy screen between areas, external windows etc. They are a suitable replacement for traditional partitions such as curtains, blinders or even wooden partitions. The neat finish and utility makes them a much-preferred installation.
4.Hospitals
The medical sector is also opening up to using Smart Glass as part of its interiors. They are more hygienic and easier to maintain than traditional blinds and curtains. The option of changing the opacity levels on demand is extremely lucrative since it allows practitioners to make the glass opaque during examination and maintain a transparent to translucent visibility during other times for regular monitoring.

5 Reasons To Pick Toughened Glass For Your Home

Home décor and furnishing trends have come a long way. From wood to metals and now glass, there are stylish designs options that can instantly beautify your interiors. Nowadays, usage of glass has become very popular among home owners as it not only adds beauty and grace to the décor, but also increases the functionality of the space.

Toughened glass, also known as tempered glass, is the perfect solution to all your worries. Listed below are the top reasons why you should go for it over other glass materials:
1.Glass was always looked up as a fragile material. However, with modern advancements in technology, today it is one of the strongest materials. Toughened glass is five times stronger than regular glass, and thus can bear load without breakage. This safety and resilient quality of toughened glass makes it a perfect fit for homes, especially those with young children.
Toughened Glass
2.Toughened glass is manufactured by exposing regular glass to extreme heat. The glass is then cooled rapidly. The quick heating and cooling process changes the chemical composition of the glass, making it more resilient.
3.Another benefit of using toughened glass over other types of glasses is that in a situation of severe impact, which may cause it to break, the glass does not shatter into spikes/shards. Rather, it crumbles into very small, blunt pebbles. This significantly reduces chances of any injury. Annealed glass, on the other hand, breaks into long, sharp spikes and can cause serious injury.
4.The impact resilience of toughened glass makes it a safer option to invest in. It adds a sense of security to the place. Moreover, doors and windows fixed with toughened glass can be adapted to provide sound proof solution, which makes it a perfect choice for every area/neighbourhood.
5.Another benefit of choosing this material is that it is very flexible and versatile, allowing you to customize it as per your choice and requirements. Toughened glass is available in variety of styles, which makes it a perfect choice for modern interior settings. One can choose from a myriad of options available or can also get it customized for a unique and personal touch. Nowadays, toughened glass with frosted appearance has become very popular as it allows privacy and also enhances the aesthetics of the space.
