By Trucurve Glass Subscribe to RSS | April 18th 2012 | Views:

Everyone dreams of a home of his own and it’s an investment of a lifetime. Having a mere home doesn’t always serve the purpose unless you decorate it according to your own choice. Starting from the furniture to door and windows, everything deserves to be perfect since it’s your dream home. So if you are done with the furniture, doors and windows, here’s something for you to check. You can try glass stairs for your home. They would look completely different from the other houses and it’s a new way to tough up your home interior.

The stairs that you would choose largely depends on the kind of furniture you are having. There are spiral stairs which looks very elegant and classy. The materials that are mainly required for staircases are wood, glass, metal, special materials etc. Among these, wood is more suitable for making traditional furniture and it is mostly preferred by the most people who are for conventional designs. Metal and glass materials also look good and especially for those who prefer modern style. The glass stairs are fashionable item for your home and mostly purchased by young generation.

Glass is found to be used by people since last century. They have their various uses starting from a shower screen to covering the largest buildings. Glass doesn’t require much maintenance and another factor is that you need not need to repaint it.

Laminated glass that is used as a windshield in vehicles is one of the most important security devices in the auto industry. It protects from the injury that may be caused from the shattered glasses or the flying objects. It is otherwise known as safety glass. Three structural layers of glasses are required in auto industry – two of regular glass and one of a substrate that is connected with the glass. It has to be taken care of that there are no dirt or dust particles on the layers of the glass. The dust would make the glass brittle and would be easily broken. After making sure that the glass is cleaned properly, they are connected together with the help of the substrate.

Air bubbles are another problem that is to be taken into consideration while making the glasses. To get rid of this, the glass structure is pressed with a giant roller that forces the air bubble to escape. The interlayer that is there in this type of glass is made up of Polyvinyl Butyral. This interlayer prevents the panel to shatter in glass pieces. The bullet proof glass is hardened by additional materials that are used while making it. The glasses also have fire protection facility that prevents them from breaking when they are exposed to fire.

The good thing about the glass is that it is not scattered while it’s broken they do not get scattered thereby injuring people. The laminated glass is used in jewellery stores, shopping malls or any other showrooms apart from being used as windshields in vehicles or as glass stairs. They are also used in mosaic and glass sculpture.
