We all know how it is with backsplashes. Unless you are a designer or an architect, before the building of your new home or starting your renovation, no one thinks that backsplashes are a cool and exciting topic. But, once you start you can't stop thinking about them and then you become a wealth of information on the topic, right?

If you are almost an expert or even if you are just diving into the subject, we have a few thoughts on the subject of backsplashes to add to your growing list of reasons they are so cool.

Easy to install and care for

A backsplash is generally placed above your stove and sink, the places where food is bound to fly. It is far easier to wipe a tile clean than it is to scrub a wall, and there will be less wear and tear on your walls.

A crucial design feature

The eye is naturally drawn to certain places in a room. In the kitchen, the main focal point is the area between the range and the hood of the stove. The next place the eye is drawn to is the area just above the sink. So, while the backsplash is partly for the practical purpose of protecting your walls, it is also an important design feature.

How can a tempered glass would help you

  2. You might have heard glass tempering is really good thing for your glass supply. Many times you may have heard this from your glaziers mentioning it is safer generally for household purposes making things being one of the top options for home owners.
  3.  Nevertheless then, it isn't truly clear what are the actual advantages of a tempered glass. But if you are definitely a home owner you truly had to comprehend this.
  4.  For one tempered glass perform have higher specification in security. Standard glass may damage and expose pointed edges making things harmful for people surrounding it.
  5.  Tempered glass deal with this limitation as it generally disintegrates into tiny pieces that do certainly not obtain pointy edges around it. 

  6. For that alone you may be confident that you can safeguard your family's safety whenever incidents occur. Considering that it is left open to appropriate levels of heat, tempered glass do not just gain high security requirement, it as well created the edges much less of a problem. It is a typical concern with glasses as the edges are conveniently cracked with unacceptable installation process. Fortunately the edges of tempered glasses gain from the procedure as well. It creates the edges even more resistant to wreckage which reduces chances of injuries and damage overall. And the conveniences do not quit there. As the glass is subjected to heat, the heat protection of the completed product is greatly improved at the same time. 
  7. This produces tempered glasses even more suited to applications which need exposure to heat like roof or pool fencing. As these uses are exposed to heat torture, common glass supply may not endure it. And naturally as the effecting product do have up to 5 times the strength of annealed glass panels; it might be used on treatment that requires strength. 
  8. Consider circumstances pool fencing
  9. Anytime you use glasses for this it will definitely exposed to accidents like slamming. Certainly, it won't happen every day but then if it does it will result in much issue for your family endangering their safety.
  10. 2Excellent standard of sturdiness is an adequately reached with tempering.
  11.  As tempered glass' strength is typically greater than that of a stiff glass panels, its life span is boosted as well. This makes things an ideal tool to make the best out of your financial commitment. 
  12. Most home owners may not be swayed by the strategy of long term use if faced with more prices but then if you consider the return of investment then you can acquire much directly from what you have spent for truly. 

  13. So normally, you'll be getting more from what you spent for even without including labor costs from mounting. 

  14. Nevertheless there are disadvantages for making use of tempered glasses. When it comes to one it cannot be cut into small pieces as the structure will crumble. But these are very little as compared to the conveniences it can offer. Greater than just one more set of glass panels, tempered glass' remarkable toughness is hard to fit.

Laminated Glass Basics

Laminated glass is made by sandwiching Poly vinyl butryl (PVB) sheet in between two pieces of glass.

 Laminated glass offers more safety because when the glass breaks, it keeps sticking on to the PVB sheet in the middle. Apart from safety, laminated glass also insulates sound, protects against UV rays, and even controls the heat when used with a solar control (or solar control thermal insulating) glass or specialized PVB.

The thickness of PVB would be minimum .38 mm and its multiples. Even though the PVB sheet reduces the UV transmission up to 99 %, it does not have any effect on visible light transmission, and hence on the solar or non-solar heat transmission (unless the glass in the combination is solar control or the PVB in itself has such properties). Maximum thickness of glass in the configuration could be up to 24 mm, and for heat strengthened or toughened glass in the configuration, the thickness of PVB would be 1.14 mm (three layers).

Laminated Glass When it Breaks

Bullet proof glasses are nothing but high configuration laminated glass!

How lamination works?

Even though in simple terms, laminated glass is two glasses stick together with a PVB layer sandwiched in between. But there is actually a chemical bonding working in between. During the manufacturing process of laminated glass under temperature and pressure, there develops a mechanical, as well as a chemical bonding between the PVB and the glass. This adhesive and chemical bondings imparts the true properties to the laminated glass and makes the unit inseparable.

How laminated glass is manufactured?

The glass of desired thickness is loaded into the laminated glass production line, initially it is cleaned using deionized water. 
After this, the glass is transferred to a clean room where the PVB is stored, this facility also has an air conditioning system to ensure that the PVB film is stored properly. 
A clean environment is mandatory for the storage facility as any dust particles sticking on to the film can cause de-lamination.

In the clean room, the cleaned glass is placed over the aligning table, over which the film is carefully placed withInside the Clean room proper geometrical alignment, after which, with the same precision, the second layer of glass is placed on top. Next, the sandwich is released in the roller which takes it for pressing (to remove air bubbles) and controlled heating (to soften the PVB). Finally, the unit is taken to an autoclave where it attains the form of actual laminated glass. In the autoclave, the unit is heated (100 to 150degree) under controlled pressure (8 to 10bar).

Types of laminated glass

  • PVB lamination being the most common form of lamination, has become a standard for automobile application and also is undoubtedly a safety and security solution. There are other forms of lamination as well, like the Cast Liquid Resin Lamination, and PVC Lamination.

  • Cast liquid resin lamination is relatively a simple process, in which liquid resin is poured inside the cavity created by two glasses kept close to each other, this unit is then cured under UV light. Even though this process produces results, the unit gives poor quality optical properties and is not considered to be as safe as PVB lamination.

  • PVC is another form of lamination, and is much cheaper when compared to PVB. Obviously “cheaper” has it’s drawbacks. In a PVC lamination, the film cannot support the glass pieces on breakage, and hence it is not considered to be safe. There are no chemical bonds forming between the film and the glass, as what happens in PVB lamination. There are also possibilities of de-lamination happening  due to the absence of chemical bonding.

Cube Room-in-Room System

Cube. Freestanding. Flexible.

The Room-in-Room system  is a freestanding and autonomous room system, that requires no connection to surrounding structural elements. 
Thus, this system offers ideal places of retreat with utmost flexibility and freedom of design. Spatial layouts in open-space environments are often the subject of change, where Architecturalglassny Cube can meet the demands individually. 
The system can be moved as whole cube, thus allowing it to adapt to specific circumstances.

Partition. Transparent. Exchangeable.

The basis of  Architecturalglassny Cube is  range of Partition systems.
