BIG Glass image

BIG Glass

Viracon now offers BIG Glass in multiple configurations along with a wide selection of components and enhancements. This flexibility will allow your design aesthetic to be realized while still meeting or exceeding the performance requirements that your project demands. Sizes to meet your project's needs are available up to 130" (3302mm) base maximum, up to 236" (5994mm) height maximum and up to 213 square feet (19.76m2). Viracon's BIG Glass offering meets or exceeds all applicable ASTM standards with the quality that you've come to expect from Viracon. As glass gets larger understanding sightlines, wind loads, glass strength and deflection becomes more critical. Viracon can help you with the calculations of these important values to ensure a safe and successful project. See the following for further information: Deflection and Sightline Reference GuideBIG Glass creates additional factors that should be considered. Since oversized units may be larger, heavier and thicker than standard units, care must be taken during shipping, storing and installation of oversized units. The proper jobsite equipment and glazing system components are critical to a safe and successful project utilizing oversized units.
Insulating Architectural Glass image

Insulating Architectural Glass

Insulating glass consists of two or more plies of glass enclosed by a spacer. Inherently, insulating glass increases a window's thermal performance by reducing the heat gain or loss.

At Viracon, insulating glass units are sealed with a primary seal and a secondary seal of silicone. Insulating units are designed to absorb stress on the unit caused by thermal expansion and pressure, provide a barrier to water and moisture infiltration, provide a gas-tight seal to prevent loss of any specialty gas fill and create a barrier that reduces condensation.

Laminated Architectural Glass image

Laminated Architectural Glass

Viracon Laminated Glass features an interlayer bonded between two or more glass plies using heat and pressure. The glass plies may be of equal or unequal thickness. Laminated glass is a durable, high-performance glazing product, designed to remain integral in the opening should glass damage occur. Often laminated glass is required to provide protection against man-made threats or natural disasters such as hurricanes, bomb blasts or forcible-entry. Available ConfigurationsViracon's laminated glass is available in various forms for commercial glazing applications. To provide a wide array of design options, as well as meet various performance levels, Viracon's laminated glass can feature tinted glass, high-performance coatings, silk-screened patterns and pigmented interlayers together or alone.
