Offering a clear choice

Whatever kind of glass structure you’re planning, Vision AGI can recommend a suitable glass that is fabricated in the UK by the leading glass processors to the highest British and European Standards.

There are thousands of different glass specification combinations available. Glass specification helps control the environment within and can assist in the minimalism of the structure’s impact and/or creatively enhance the surrounding architecture.

Glass Specification & Types

There are a number of considerations when specifying the glass for any project, which we will be able to advise you on and guide you through, taking all your needs and requirements into account.

Each different type of glass has its specific function.

Please see some of the different glass types & functions listed below:

Float Glass

Float (Annealed) Glass

Manufactured by floating molten glass on a bath of liquid tin to produce a perfectly flat surface on both sides.

Float glass is not suitable for use in overhead glazing.

Toughened Glass

Five times stronger than Float glass, Toughened glass is a cost effective safety glass and is commonly used in overhead glazing

Toughened HST Glass

Heat Soak Tested glass reduces the possibility of fractures in the glass caused by Nickel Sulphide inclusions created by the manufacturing process

Vision AGI Rooflights are HST as standard

Heat Strengthened Glass

Ideal for large overhead designs, Heat Strengthened glass can be used for additional strength to the final structure

Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is intended for increased safety, especially at height, sound insulation and UV protection

Glass Finishes & Extras

Finishes vary and can often be utilised in multiple combinations.

Etched or obscured for added privacy or environmental impact.

Solar Control Glass for increased thermal efficiency

Ritec ClearShield, Low Maintenance Coating and Self Cleaning Glass to to extend the time between cleans.

Also available, anti-reflective, blast-resistant, bullet-resistant, curved, ceramic frit/enamelled, fused, patterned, sand-blasted, screen printed and tinted to name a few…the options within glass specifications are almost endless.

Glass Face

Face is the term used to describe glass surfaces in numerical order from the exterior to the interior i.e.
Single Glass has 2 faces; Face 1 – Exterior face & Face 2 – Interior face.
Double Glazed Units have 4 faces; Face 1 Outer Pane Exterior face, Face 2 Outer Pane facing the Cavity, Face 3 Inner Pane facing the Cavity & Face 4 Inner Pane Interior face.
Triple Glazed Units follow the same pattern as above but have 6 faces.

Other Materials

Taking care of the smallest detail

While glass is the main feature in every structure we design and install, the additional elements required to fabricate the structure are equally important.

Aluminium

The aluminium used in our frames is manufactured in the UK to the highest standards and offers outstanding thermal insulation and security.

Silicone

We use the best quality silicone sealants from Dow Corning, tested for adhesion with coated surfaces and stainless steel finishes.

Hardware

The hardware and fixings used in the construction of our roof lights are specified to a minimum stainless steel grade A2.
