Choosing the right commercial storefront, curtain wall or entrance system that provides a true thermal break, in conjunction with the appropriate insulating glass configuration, is the best way to achieve maximum benefits of building-wide energy savings from reduced thermal loss. For best glazing performance, glass companies and specifiers should consider the thermal performance of the frame and the insulating glass system.
Today, building product manufacturers have developed a wide range of technological and architectural solutions that address the growing concern and focus on energy efficiency and sustainability. Advances made over the past 40 years have resulted in cost savings and more eco-conscious buildings for owners and end users.
Designing the exterior of your business can be a challenging task. The exterior of a business communicates much about a company’s identity and sense of style and this can be very important for some types of businesses. Glass storefronts offer an opportunity to showcase a store’s inventory and products to passersby. This is one of several benefits that glass storefronts grant to retail businesses.
Glass storefronts can offer business owners several benefits. Some of the more commonly cited benefits of glass storefronts include:
- Display of unique and quality store products to potential customers
- Added visibility for security at night
- Visual appeal, by enlarging a customer’s line of sight into a store
- More welcoming exterior, as opposed to solid storefronts
