Technical Information


The GlasSpace system has been designed in conjunction with leading structural engineers Techniker Ltd, who are at the forefront of structural glazing technology. A GlasSpace is designed to exceed all safety legislation guidelines and to withstand the severest extremes of the British climate. The panes are strong enough to walk on for easy maintenance and cleaning and provide total safety for everybody inside the space at all times.

The GlasSpace system guarantees compliance with all building regulations. GlasSpace can supply all the engineering drawings and calculations to ensure smooth passage through local authority building control.

GlasSpace uses toughened glass for both panes of the double glazed units. These panes meet BS6206 Class A, and are acquired from the worlds leading suppliers.

Building Regulations;

A GlasSpace complies with all aspects of the Buildings Regulations, with particular attention paid to the new Part L and Part N requirements. All necessary testing and engineering has been carried out and reports are available to demonstrate compliance.

Thermal Properties;

The new Part L of the Building regulations covers the conservation of fuel and power in dwellings. Specifically, it governs the minimum thermal properties that glass, walls, roofs and windows must achieve.

The GlasSpace System has been independently tested by Sandberg Consulting Engineers under British Fenestration Rating Council guidelines, enabling GlasSpace to calculate the exact U value of any proposed structure. While regulations require U Values of a maximum of 2.2 W/mK, GlasSpaces exceed this with average values of around 1.6 W/mK.

This thermal efficiency has been achieved by optimizing both the type of low E coating used and edge details. Silicone Edge Sealed units are Argon filled to achieve the required u-values.

Warranty;

The GlasSpace comprehensive warranty gives customers total peace of mind. All materials are warrantied for up to 10 years, workmanship and maintenance is for a period up to 5 years, though we anticipate that a GlasSpace will give trouble free service well beyond that time period.
