Glazing Solutions for Commercial Car Showrooms
In these environments the clarity of large glass facades and fronts are key.
IQ has developed a glazing system specifically led and focused towards car showrooms. In these environments, large glass facades and fronts are key in allowing passing potential customers to see clearly into the showroom space. Therefore minimal framing, transparency and clarity of glass are hugely important factors to consider.
With that in mind, IQ can offer a few technical glass solutions for the architectural glazing elements in a Showroom environment, to ensure the cars are displayed in all their magnificence.
Non-reflective coatings can be applied to glass to reduce glare from its surface. In passing you would want customers to have a clear view of what is inside the showroom without reflections that detract from the car’s appearance, offering a clear view of the products on sale. Using a non-reflective coating can reduce the residual reflection to less than 1% whilst maintaining up to 98% light transmission.
Low Iron Glass
Standard glass is not completely clear and has a very slight green tint caused by iron oxide. Glass can be specially manufactured using ingredients with naturally low iron content to achieve unprecedented clarity and transparency. This eliminates the ‘green tint’ from the glass and is used in places where ‘invisible glazing’ is required. This will ensure the cars are viewed clearly as they would be from inside the showroom.
IQ is well versed and experienced in producing and designing very minimal high-end frameless finishes across all applications. Creative glazing design and modern glass technological advances allow the IQ engineers to design glazing for showrooms which have minimal framing. These designs maximise the amount of glass to offer uninterrupted clear views of the vehicles on display.
The IQ Heated Glass system can be designed in large, minimally framed glass panels and heats the internal space with radiant heat to ensure that the showroom area is kept comfortable and would encourage visitors to remain for longer periods of time. It also has the added benefit of stopping any condensation build-up on the glass on wet days, keeping the glass clear.
The team at IQ use modern innovative design to produce avant-garde glazing solutions that are unique to each project. This type of architectural glazing can ensure that your showroom stands out from competitors.
We encourage Motor dealers and their showroom designers to consult with IQ Glass UK and explore the possibilities of design to maximise the effect your cars in your showroom have. Contact IQ Glass today to discuss your project further.
