We have already talked about the meaning and importance of going ‘green’ in the glass industry. Gilbert Glass pays particular attention to the standards of ecological safety and environmental protection. However, we do not also forget about the role which sustainability plays in the successful development of glass products. A sustainable glass product is that which is created to meet the specific criteria of the climate zone, structure size, performance values and, necessarily, aesthetics. Energy consumption and cost-efficiency are crucial elements of sustainability in glass manufacturing. This is why, before you decide to get something made of glass, ask Gilbert Glass to evaluate your structural conditions and create a glass product that responds to your specific climate, construction, and aesthetic needs.
Sustainable glass products are becoming more popular among business, individual, and public service consumers. Less than a year ago, San Diego Miramar College received a new sustainable building with an adjacent parking lot, a project that also includes a police substation. Definitely, the use of sustainable construction principles will add value to the discussed project, increase its durability and improve its ecological safety features. Very often, sustainable glass products are made of recycled glass.
Sustainable glass products differ greatly among manufacturers. Sustainable construction features should be balanced to meet your needs. For example, you can choose to have your curtainwalls with special siding on the south, while glass windows will be operable to ensure constant natural ventilation. All these things are possible, if you work with professionals who know their job well. We at Gilbert Glass constantly advance our knowledge of sustainable glass products. With us, you can be sure that your home or business premises achieve maximum energy efficiency and help you to minimize your energy costs.
