With ‘responsive architecture’ firmly at the top of its agenda, we will be showcasing our suite of controllable glass system solutions at this year’s Eco Build in the form of a ‘smart home’.


Head for the home at stand S855 as we unveil our latest market leading digitally responsive glass products and controllable glass systems, which will play an integral role in maximising space, reducing energy costs and creating a comfortable environment within our homes and workspaces. This goes beyond simply creating light and unobtrusive living spaces to using glass products that adapt to changing weather, taking into account light, heat and cold. The range includes ESG Solarchromic™ Climate Control Glass, ESG Thermic™ Heatable Glass and ESG Switchable™ LCD Privacy Glass.

There has never been a more appropriate time to introduce digitally responsive glass products, especially given the increased demand for energy efficient buildings that will only intensify as we near the requirement for all new homes to be zero carbon from 2016.

Our Controllable System Specialists will be on hand for the duration of the show – from 5th to 7th March 2013 – to advise on any specific projects and technical enquiries.

Role of security glass in preventing access to property and reducing loss of high worth assets

7 Nov

Despite the credit crunch, high end retailers appear to be thriving. However, the danger for these desirable goods is much as it has always been – not everyone can afford to acquire them legitimately, so there is always scope for the unscrupulous to sell them through less than ethical channels. Sadly, luxury goods will always be a target for theft. This is exemplfied by this week’s robbery at Brent Cross Shopping Centre where criminals armed with axes and bats rode motorbikes into an indoor shopping centre in north London and raided the Fraser Hart Jewellery store.   The pillion passengers got off the bikes and smashed the windows, leaving with a haul  believed to be worth up to £2m.

In the past the only answer was iron bars and steel shutters. These days we have more sophisticated means of protecting high end goods such as designer accessories and jewellery – in the form of some highly technical glass. This may seem odd, especially as in past times the bars, shutters and grilles were put in place to protect the glass as well as the goods that sat behind it, but times have changed. Glass has learned some invaluable new tricks and acquired some priceless qualities.

For a start, glass is much tougher than it used to be. Using technical interlayers sandwiched between glass panels, ESG now produces glass that has been approved by the Association of Chief Police Officers – and they know a thing or two about crime against property. We’ve also created ESG LPS1270, a highly secure glass designed to stand up to, and tested by, career criminals. It’s all about knowing your enemy. We’ve even produced ESG Ballistic, so that even if the criminal is armed, the glass you install can still help to stop him.

This isn’t all glass can do either. If you can’t see the goods, it’s very difficult to know whether it’s worth going after them. ESG Polyvision™ is made using technology that can be combined with all the security measures in our portfolio to produce a glass that’s not only secure, but which can be changed from optically clear (so you can see the goods on offer) to opaque (so you can’t tell if a crime is worth the risk) just by flicking an electric switch. What the eye doesn’t see, the criminal might just pass by. You won’t stop crime overnight, but you can certainly introduce a few very interesting deterrents that may make the prospective criminal look elsewhere for his next target. We suggest you try window shopping at ESG.
