Abstract

Glass products, being made from the only durable transparent material suitable for permanent use as a part of building envelopes, fulfill an important function for the visual connection between inside and outside spaces as well as for different processes of building physics. The basic contemporary glass type, float glass, can be transformed by diverse procedures and by combining it in composite glazing constructions in order to provide sufficient thermal insulation, as well as solar, acoustic, and fire protection. Tempered safety glasses, moreover, ensure the required security for certain applications like overhead glazings or fully glazed façades by virtue of their mechanical strength and their particular breakage behaviour.
