It has been decades that architectural glass sheets have been utilized as a construction material. Over this time, manufacturers have achieved a significant success in terms of fabrication and finishing technology, bringing the glass properties almost to perfection. Increasingly pronounced in glass industry is the nanotechnology sector, which renders it specific and extraordinary properties in terms of operation and aesthetics, thus opening new bright perspectives for architects and designers. It would be fair to say that it was new safe multilayer glass items that helped discover most significant improvements of properties and capabilities of glass as a construction material. All valuable operation and technical properties of such glass are achieved by using a “sandwich” principle, i.e. by creating a multilayer composite structure with a polymer layer in between. It is still difficult to appreciate the whole significance and implications of this development. Regrettably, many issues of perfecting the technology and equipment that helps create multilayer glass (triplex production equipment) have been outside researchers’ focus of attention, thus hindering the practical development across the entire range of safety glass application. Most new properties are still unknown and require serious theoretical and experimental developments to uncover. Among these: detailed study of formation and development of multilayer glass production technology based on innovative polymer materials with a higher strength compared to existing materials, research of properties and application of hybrid structures based on new composite elements. The combination of fragile glass and plastic materials (for instance: polycarbonate and glass sandwich panels, glass and acryl tile etc.) enables to optimize the functionality of multi-layer shutterproof glass. It is beyond doubt that ongoing researches in this area will boost the improvement of existing and development of new approaches to designing and creating multilayer glass machines for industrial-scale production.
It often happens that people confuse glass panes and vinyl windows. These are not synonyms, however. A glass pane is a part and nearly crucial part of a window structure. This is a translucent structure consisting of two or more glasses that are fixed (glued) together along the outline using spacing bars and sealant compounds. Main functions of a glass pane: natural lighting, thermal and noise insulation. Glass panes are categorized by manufacturing process: standard, where molecular sieve is poured into a metal or vinyl spacer, after which the glued glass sheets are plastered along the edge with silicon, isomelt, polysulfide or polyurethane sealant compound, thus providing the secondary sealing. Warm edge technology-based manufacture This is a new and promising technology. It differs from the standard technology in that instead of several production steps as in the case with glass pane it involves only two (flexible spacer application, pressing), thus greatly saving time and cost. Such glass pane is warmer than that manufactured using a standard technology. As defined in GOST 24866, glass pane are categorized as follows: by number of chambers. A space between each two glass sheets is called a chamber. Glass panes can be single-chamber (two glass sheets), double-chamber (three glass sheets) and so on. by width The glass pane width is the full width considering its glass and air part. Glass panes can be 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 42, 44 etc. mm By glass type: regular energy-efficient glass with low-emission coating (hard or soft, also known as - or I-type) noise-resistant triplex sun-screening tinted or film-coated glass shutterproof glass with a high protection class.
A technology that creates a dim surface and renders it grainy and non-transparent (an operation contrary to polishing). The dimming allows drawing a picture on a glass surface. The dimming is widely used in manufacture of glass and ceramic dishware, decoration elements, imitation jewelry, souvenirs, glass furniture and other glass items. Glass dimming methods can be categorized by five groups: dimming by mechanical treatment; chemical dimming; application of dimmed coating by firing; application of dim paint coats; other dimming methods.
The all-glass enclosing structures of elevator shafts provide the main advantage of perceptible fragility and exquisiteness combined with guaranteed reliability and long life. The panoramic glazing of elevator shafts with architectural shutterproof glass (which is more commonly referred to as a panoramic elevator) has an advantage to conventional enclosed shafts. The main type of elevator shaft glazing Karvan-Glass apply is point glazing: glass is attached to the bearing structure made of stainless or construction steel using point fittings specially designed to compensate for dynamic loads that occur during operation of an elevator. In doing so, the maximum transparency is achieved. The versatility of elevator shaft designs using architectural safety steel is virtually unmatched among other materials. It ranges from full transparency which gives a panoramic view to passengers in an elevator through to modern photoprints on glass capable of embodying any designer’s concept. For instance, hidden glass fittings enable to create a solid structure that shares concept with the decorative glazing of walls.
Glass doors are the integral part of architecture today. This is a fantastic choice for any kind of premises, from business centers through to apartments.

Glass arbors, just like arbors made of more conventional materials, are a fine choice for their key function, which is providing comfort in a garden or a park. Among advantages of a glass arbor: the glass structure can be opening type, so your can rest in an open arbor and enjoy fresh air and flower scent while the weather is good, but hide behind the glass if it aggravates; you can enjoy watching the environment through the translucent façade without perceiving the thin boundary in between; the arbor glazing is a great protection from the weather and wind without impairing the feeling of ‘being in the wilds’; the laced and transparent structure of an even big arbor will not create a visual impression of obstructed space in your garden. What are the design features of glass arbors? The most widespread type of arbor glazing in modern construction is either shutterproof glass of different thickness or safety glass. This material has a number of undisputable advantages: high strength which enables to withstand big wind loads and humming blows; safety in operation which guarantees no cuts in case the glass is broken after all; long life.
Bulletproof glasses are in the category of safety glasses . Produced by Erdem Cam in accordance with EN1063 standards, these glasses are multi-layer laminated glass that protects against armed attacks . It should be noted that in the event of an armed attack, bullet-proof glass can also be produced with polycarbonate sheets to avoid distributing glass particles to the interior of the space. The NS class of EN1063 standards makes this necessary. Asymmetric safety glasses, lead-proof feature if they can be applied in the correct position. If laminating is to be applied to the double glazing to provide bulletproof properties, the laminating unit must be on the other side of the expected armed attack.
Laminated tempered glass is also known as safety glass and can be defined as laminated glass which is broken into small but not sharp pieces in impacts . Laminated tempered glasses, produced by Erdem Cam, are also passed through heating and cooling stages and finalized. The reason for this is explained as imparting pressure stress to the outer surface of the glass and tensile stress to the middle surface. This type of glass, which is widely used in the form of glass doors and glass façades , is known as safety glass due to the fact that it does not break apart as a result of an impact and does not harm the people and objects around it. These risks are carefully reviewed during the production of glasses and the production is carried out by minimizing the risk of injury to persons as well as the unwanted passage of persons and goods from one side to the other.
