Have you ever wondered translucent, channel or frit when choosing glass?

 ARC-04-404-INT (3)Our Director of Sustainable Design, Sam Missimer recently commented on this topic for  NZB-Net Zero Building Magazine. The article is a must read for anyone working in lighting, architecture, or glazing, who is interested in learning more about the evolving world of daylighting in building design and construction.  Sam says, “I think most significant advance is the emergence of high-performance translucents as a strategic part of the envelope”. To find out why he feels this way, check out the article at:

Photo Above, Muse De Ponce, Puerto Rico – a naturally daylighted art museum, using Solera Translucent Glazings .

Finally, we’d like to send a big thank you to the publishers of Net Zero Buildings Magazine for allowing Sam to weigh in on the issue.

How daylighting can go wrong in sports facilities….

Here at Advanced Glazings Ltd. we take our hockey very seriously!

We have many fans on staff as well as devoted “Hockey” parents who spend their weekends in arenas. On one of those weekends, a staff member snapped the picture below (caption – arena with vision glass) , capturing the effects of direct beam sunlight on the ice surface and surrounding space when clear vision glass is used to daylight a facility.  The photo captures the hot spots created on the ice surface, seating and overall light levels in the sports facility.



Arena with vision glass windows.


In comparison the photo below contains Solera Glazing units,  notice how deep the natural daylight penetrates into the space.  Note the absence of hot spots and glare.  There is enough natural daylight illuminating the space that one could skate with the lights off!  This arena possess and open and inviting atmosphere where athletes and spectators are welcomed by the glow of natural light.
