Glass Companies Creating Products for Commercial Interiors
Cutting-edge Glass Manufacturers
Glass is not just a cladding material or a cover for window openings along the exteriors of buildings. Interior glass walls and architectural glass lend transparency to an interior and allow daylight to penetrate. This contributes to the sustainability of a project and creates a more welcoming environment for occupants. Interior glass products can be used in nearly every project type, including commercial offices, healthcare environments, hospitality and retail settings, and public and institutional buildings.
Interior glass walls with integrated commercial glass doors are often used to divide perimeter offices from open office space or other public areas without limiting natural light from transmitting from the exterior. This glass is often treated to improve acoustics within the adjacent spaces. When privacy is an issue, glass partitions can be tinted or fritted.
Glass is also incorporated in interiors in a more decorative way in the form of architectural glass products. These products often feature metals and other materials embedded between layers of glass. They lend color and texture to a space while still allowing some light to be transmitted. Architectural glass can be used for tabletop surfaces, as accent walls within public spaces like lobbies, and as spatial dividers. Architectural glass manufacturers for commercial interiors include CARVART, Bendheim Architectural Glass, Skyline Design, PPG Industries, and Forms+Surfaces.
Contract editors research the latest in architectural glass and interior glass wall products and regularly feature them in our print issue and on our website. Consider incorporating these products into your next commercial interior project.
