Architectural Glass

Swastik deals in all types of Architectural Glasses. Architectural glass is now one of the major part in building materials. It is most typically used as transparent glazing material in buildings envelope & also in windows in the external walls. Glass is also used for internal partitions and as a architectural feature.

Tempered Glass

Fully tempered glass is approximately four times stronger than annealed glass of the same thickness and configuration, and residual surface compression must be over 10,000 PSI for 6mm, according to ASTM C 1048. When it breaks, it will break into many relatively small fragments, which are less likely to cause serious injury.

Tempered glass is approximately 4 to 5 times stronger than annealed glass of the same thickness and configuration. When tempered glass breaks, it will break into many relatively small fragments, which cause minimum injury.

Tempered glass is often referred to as “safety glass” because it meets the requirements of the various code organizations that set standards for safety glass. This type of glass is intended for general glazing, and also safety glazing such as sliding doors, storm doors, building entrances, bath and shower enclosures, interior partitions and other uses requiring superior strength and safety properties. Tempered glass cannot be cut or drilled after tempering, and any alterations, such as edge-grinding, sandblasting or acid-etching, can cause premature failure.

Features & Advantages

  • Improves mechanical, tensile and thermal strength by 4 to 5 time over annealed glass.
  • Reduces thermal breakage due to edge strength being better and thermal endurance higher.
  • Provides safety since the glass break into very small piece with dulled or blunt edges.

Insulate Glass

Swastik offers insulated glass , which can be used for malls, commercial buildings, homes, offices and other workplaces where you want stylish aesthetic look along with maximum energy savings. Insulating glass refers to two or more lutes of glass sealed around the edges with an air space between, to form a single unit. When used in conjunction with Low-E and/or reflective glass, IG units becomes more effective to save energy and comply with energy codes. The most common architectural insulating glass unit configuration is 6 mm – 12 mm air space – 6 mm.

Features & Advantages

  • Improves aesthetics.
  • Lowers U-VALUE at least by 50%.
  • Insulation from direct solar, non-solar and conduction or conversion heat.
  • Reduces AC loads drastically.
  •  Can be used in various toughened or laminated glass combinations.
  • Provides higher acoustic insulation when used with Laminated glass combinations.

Sentry Glass

Sentry glass is a higher version of Laminate glass (Security glass). In Sentry glass, two or more lutes (pieces) of glass permanently bonded together with one or more sentry layers using heat and pressure. The glass and inter layers can be of different thicknesses designed to meet building code standards and requirements of the client. Sentry glass can be broken, but the fragments will tend to adhere to the plastic layer and remain largely intact, reducing the risk of injury. Sentry glass is considered “security glass” because it can meet the requirements of the various code organizations that set standards for safety. Heat strengthened and tempered glass can be incorporated into sentry glass units to further strengthen the impact resistance.

Features & Advantages

  •  Provides better acoustic control due to dampening effect of Sentry film
  •  Provides elementary security & safety since the glass remains stuck to it and doesn’t fall in case of breakage. Thus it completely eliminates the risk of injury due to falling of fragments.
  • Blocks 99% of UV Ray’s preventing fading of interiors.
  • Can be produced in different combination of glass as per specific requirements.
  • Can be used in IGU combination for better solar and acoustic control properties.
  • Best for using as glazing and in portions where decoration with safety is important and many more.

Bullet Proof Glass

Bulletproof glass (also known as ballistic glass, transparent armour or bullet-resistant glass) is a type of very strong but optically transparent material that is particularly resistant to being penetrated when struck. Like any other material,  they are not completely impenetrable.

The ability of the polycarbonate layer to stop projectiles with varying energy is directly proportional to its thickness, and bulletproof glass of this design may be up to 3.5 inches thick. Laminated glass layers are built from glass sheets bonded together with Sentry, PVB, PUB or EVA layers

Features and Advantages

  • For High-end Security & Safety.
  • Can withstand a round of strikes from bullets and other objects.
  • Can be used in windows, cars & many more.

Fire Rated Glass

Swastik offers Fire Rated Glass, also known as Fire Resistance Glass. Now increase in fire accidents, Fire Rated Glass have become very essential product for Safety & Protection. 

Fire Rated Glass is used to minimize the damage & restrict the fire from spreading. Fire Rated Glass can be Tempered, Laminate, Insulate or both Laminate & Insulate.

Features and Advantages

  • Wide range of Fire Rated Glass available with Security & Acoustic features.
  • Performance & Insulation is available for 60 & 120 minutes.
  • Used in Exit & Access route in case of Fire.
  • To prevent Smoke & Fire from spreading.
  • Fire Rated Glass is used in Data Server rooms, Partitions and many more.
