Impact system

Sentech Architectural Systems completed the development and successful testing of a new impact-resistant structural glass system, VetraFin. Using the latest glass technology and 28-foot-tall glass panels and fins, the system was specifically designed for high-end building entrances constructed in hurricane-prone, urban areas. Using 18-inch-deep glass fins, the system provides a solution that has no visible exterior metal components, maximizing transparency while ensuring structural integrity and strength.

Bird glass

Guardian Bird1st glass offers a balance of solar performance, aesthetics and bird safety. A UV stripe coating on the first surface is virtually invisible to the human eye in dry conditions and visually signals an impending barrier to birds and helps prevent collisions. Views remain clear, unlike traditional ceramic frit solutions, all while helping protect birds. Paired with select Guardian SunGuard low-emissivity coatings, Bird1st glass meets LEED Pilot Credit 55.
