Glass Technical Resources
Some of the more commonly researched technical resources for glass are highlighted here. For additional technical bulletins and memos, visit the Vitro Architectural Glass Technical Library.
Glass Design Guidelines: In addition to aesthetics and energy-related performance characteristics of glass products, it is critical that attention be given to other design considerations discussed in this document.
Thermal Stress Analysis: This tool provides glass recommendations based on the design of your specific project.
Safety Data Sheets for Vitro Glass Products: Searchable by product name or product code.
Vitro Specialty Glass Applications: Resources for projects requiring architectural glass products, including MSDS, a design kit, case studies and more.
Intercept® Spacer System Manual: Manual that provides users of the Intercept® Spacer System technology with a formal statement of known and generally accepted techniques to manufacture high quality IG units.
Fading Factors: Detailed information about the ISO Damage Weighted Transmittance (Tdw-ISO) factor, which many experts now use to more accurately assess the potential effects of various glazing materials on fading.
