Insulated Glass Unit

lisec

 

GlassCo Australia takes pride in having the latest State of the art IGU line series from LISEC. The fully automated manufacturing line with an automatic sealing robot using only high quality structural silicone and adding Argon gas to all of its units assists with increasing the performance of every unit produced by GlassCo Australia.

Float Glass

This type of Glass is manufactured by melting sand, soda ash, dolomite and limestone together and produces a continuous glass ribbon up to 3660mm wide. This flows from the furnace and 'floats' over a bed of molten tin. It is then carefully cooled to anneal the glass – a process which modifies the internal stresses enabling it to be cut and which maximises its potential mechanical resistance. The float glass process is renowned for flatness and optical clarity. It is available in clear, toned, high performance toned, ultra clear low iron glass and Low E pyrolitic coated.

Decorative

GlassCo Australia's Decorative products comprises a range of Decorative Patterns, styles and visual effects. This provides opportunities for modern design or the faithful re-creation of décor from a by-gone era. It is suitable for windows and interiors.

Low-E (Energy Saver)

Did you know?
By using certain Low E glass combinations, more than two thirds of the heat can be eliminated prior to it entering the building.
Low E (Low emissivity) coated glass is designed to improve thermal insulation in both summer and winter. Low E coated products result in a lower U-value. The lower the U-value the better the performance. As warm air is always drawn towards cooler air, a Low E coating will reduce heat gain when the air outside is warmer than the air inside and reduce heat loss when the air inside is warmer than the air outside. A Low E coating on clear glass will have little effect on reducing the impact of the sun's direct heat (solar energy).

Toughened

Toughened glass forms small granules when broken.

 Description:

Toughened glass is made from annealed glass via a thermal tempering process. Producing toughened and heat strengthened glass begins with the feeding by conveyor of cut-to-size annealed sheets of glass (with minimum arrised edges) into a furnace.The glass oscillates back and forth on ceramic rollers to an approximate temperature of 620ºC.Under computer control, the glass moves into the quench where it is rapidly cooled by high pressure cool air. This 'snap' cooling or quenching induces compressive stresses to the glass surface, while the centre remains in tension. Although the physical characteristics remain unchanged, the additional stresses created within the glass increases its strength by 4–5 times (for toughened glass) compared to that of annealed glass of equal thickness.

Superior Clear

Choose from the Clear Vision range where excellent transparency and clarity is required for superior views.

 Description

GlassCo Australia superior clear provides maximum transparency and clarity by providing a crystal clear glass without the green tint usually found in standard float glass. This is achieved by removing the iron content from the glass during manufacture.
