The Rising Popularity and Benefits of Using Glass in Building Projects
On this episode of Element Sessions, an Element Designs podcast, Nelson Wills, vice president of business development, and Sahaj Patel, president of Triton Glass, LLC, joined host Geoffrey Short to discuss the rising popularity of glass use in building projects. Wills noted office spaces are becoming more open with less emphasis on private offices. Glass provides the structure of walls, but the openness of space.
Wills and Patel elaborated on the differences between tempered and laminated glass, and which building applications typically use each type and why. Patel also mentioned insulated glass, a product used for exteriors.
To talk about glass’ present, Wills started with glass’ past to demonstrate its long history in the building process.
“We see glass across industries. We see it in appliances, we see it in solar panels, we see it in exteriors; there’s a strong trend towards using glass in electronics,” Patel said.
Wills talked about the fast-moving technology around glass and he mentioned several examples of new innovations.
Patel walked Short through the process his company goes through when working with clients on their glass projects. His goal is to educate the client on the types of products available to them so they can make the right decision based on their needs.
Wills and Patel wrapped up the conversation by reminding listeners of the improvements and technology advances happening with glass products, from increased energy efficiency to the flexibility in use.
