The future is marked with ecological awareness and energy efficiency that shows the level of maturity of a generation. Energy sources today are fast becoming depleted; hence, the utilisation of renewable energy sources like sun, water, and ground-heat.
The balding forests’ rapid economic growth which makes use of its wood for fuel and building purposes are now becoming a growing concern, and is now a reason for finding alternative building and energy sources.
One thing that answers to these growing international concerns is glass and the movement that makes glass suitable as today’s building material, as well as answers the call for energy efficiency.
Answering With Glass
In the past, glass was too brittle and dangerous to be around with if it breaks. However, glasses used in homes that are according to Australian safety standards are tougher and less likely to cause severe injuries. This is safety glass as we know it today!
In answer to conserve the world’s natural resources of renewable energy, glass takes a stand. It has an inner layer that can improve its energy efficiency ratio by keeping the cold out and the warmth in. This allows our heating appliances to work efficiently without using too much electricity in the process.
Safety glass also effectively lets natural light in from the outside allowing us to cut down on artificial lighting during the day.
The Future Is Here
With glass answering both economic and ecological issues that face us today with practical solutions and technical innovation, it is truly the building material of the future. Easily manufactured and made according to safety standards, the many uses of glass and high customisability is proof that it is the embodiment of the future.
