How green buildings are set to be the next big phenomenon

← Homepage

Green buildings are the next big thing in the modern day architecture. With contemporary designs and energy efficiency, a good value for money are set to leave a mark.

The world is going eco-friendly and so is glass. Faced with increasing environmental degradation, glass suppliers have realized that eco-friendly living is the new mantra. Naturally, then, the living and work places are also transforming to reflect the green revolution. And in this transformation, glass is emerging as one of the most effective building materials.
Green buildings together brings vast array of techniques, skills and practices that reduce and ultimately eliminate the impacts of buildings on the environment and human health. The dream of a ‘Nearly-Zero Energy’ building has, for decades, lured architects and builders around the world into innovating new technologies and building materials to create smart and sustainable infrastructure. This dream is fast turning into a reality, green buildings are actually becoming a norm globally, through extensive use of innovative usage of window glass types in buildings that reduces the air-conditioning load and the need for artificial lighting, and thus minimise energy consumption in the building. Glass used in exteriors and interiors play an important. Glasses used in architectural are transparent and glazing material. They also make the walls of the building and internal partition. Glass is the perfect material used in building for architects as they help in creating better lighting in the building. It’s also space saving and provides airy and open space in the building.
India is at the forefront of the green building revolution through focused initiatives towards creation of effective green building material that addresses key parameters, such as the solar factor, heat gain, U-value, visual comfort, safety and sound insulation. With new types of glazing solutions – internal and external–spaces are becoming more efficient, even as new possibilities are getting unleashed in terms of design and aesthetics.

Although new technologies are constantly being developed to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the common objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:

• Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources
• Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
• Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation

As intelligent sustainable solutions become a way of life, our Energy Efficient Glass range strikes the perfect balance between outdoors and indoors, function and finesse. Developed to suit the unique climatic conditions of the Indian subcontinent, it also meets the needs of the consumers who traditionally require more cooling than heating and want to prevent solar radiation from coming in. Optimum light is what the consumers want and Solar control Glass gives out optimum results. A natural choice for all environment-friendly architecture, it is now widely used on exterior facades to keep indoor spaces brighter and cooler. It allows light to pass through a window or face, while radiating, absorbing and reflecting away a large degree of the near-range infrared heat.

Key points of:
• Allowing optimum light to pass through windows/facade while absorbing and reflecting away a large degree of the near range Infrared heat.
• Keeping indoor spaces brighter and cooler.
• Reduces Glare
• Improves energy efficiency
• Protective coating to cut harmful UV radiations
Green buildings are all set to leave a mark of innovation and supreme design in the near future. More and more architectural techniques are being embraced by the designers and architects that are not only energy efficient but also cost effective. Glass today is providing unmatched value at unreasonable prices.
