Channel Glass: An Architect's Material Review

This video is a primer on channel glass and an architect's take on the material. It's a 10-minute short course describing:

- Cost

- Uses

- Physical and thermal properties

- Finish and color options

- Attachment specifics

- Special design considerations

- Benefits and liabilities

Unlike standard float glass, channel glass has a high recycled content and the opportunity for improved thermal performance over insulated glass units. It's translucent so it provides natural daylight to spaces with privacy requirements or in tight urban sites where undesirable views are a design constraint.
