Project X - ConfidentialDearborn, MI
Glazier partner: Edward’s Glass Company
We were asked by one of Michigan’s premier glaziers, Edwards Glass Company to partner in this latest high tech automotive facility. This project would no doubt use the fullest of our capabilities and resources. From our engineering, decorative, to custom metals and insulated glass divisions it has it all. Firstly, it involved a large scope on insulated products with tight performance requirements. Furthermore, a large portion of these insulated pieces would have to be birth friendly.
From the outside in, we find a custom printed pattern glass on the high performance insulated glass units. We frit printed a line pattern that would allow 50% clean light transmittance and 50% diffused light. The intent, to disrupt wildlife’s view with these lines as required. We put this design on Guardian’s premium SNX62-27 coating on low iron glass. This would offer the best results for clarity and functionality for the space.
Inside, we engineered, and fabricated, a series of wall partitions and door systems. These full height glass walls allow light to flow through the space uninterrupted adding efficiency to the space. Lastly, we designed a few vestibules following the same model and thought process. We were able to provide this high tech automotive facility with a full turn key package from start to finish.
