Heated Glass Comparison

When thinking of some of the world's most dramatic, visually breathtaking buildings, they most likely involve large expanses of glass. Before these architectural masterpieces can be created, the glass may need to be heat-treated for durability and/or safety reasons. The type of processing required heat strengthening or tempering depends on the glass' specific application.

Solarban® 70XL Glass

Considered one of the greenest buildings in the region, the 39,000-square-foot Live Oak Bank Headquarters is designed with Solarban 70XL glass and cypress wood.
