Glass has been described as "the greatest building material known to man" and it is a building material with outstanding durability, which plays a crucial part in creating the visual appearance of all buildings.

Understanding glass and its relationship to light, transparency, reflection, insulation, solar gain, sound control, strength, safety and what these qualities can bring to a building to impact on indoor and outdoor environments is critical when designing with glass.

Whilst all float glass is imported into New Zealand, local processing is available for some products, so for specific design projects there is the opportunity to get exactly the glass performance you need for your building glazing solution without compromise, from a range of local and international manufacturers and processors.
