Delivery

With over 95% of glazing businesses in Australia employing less than 20 people, and with the bulk of their time spent ‘on the job’, we understand there is often little time and resources available for planning. The Viridian Trade Centre can deliver sheets of glass and materials anywhere in the greater Sydney area, saving you from time spent off the job.


Knowledge

The team at Viridian Trade Centre are glazing specialists; we can advise the best materials, tools, and installation methods for the job. Our glazing knowledge is backed by Viridian Glass, the industry leader and largest provider of glass in Australia. We stock installation guides and brochures from each of our suppliers, and can help you keep up to speed on the latest products available.

Float Glass

Float Glass is renowned for flatness and optical clarity. It is available in clear, toned, high performance toned, ultra clear low iron glass and Low E pryrolitic coated.


DecorPatterned Glass Available on order

A pattern is embossed into the glass during manufacture by passing the semi molten glass through a set of rollers prior to annealing. One side remains smooth whilst the texture is applied to the other side.


Insulating Glass Units Available on order

Insulating Glass Units, also known as double glazed units, are made by two or more panels of glass being bonded to a perimeter spacer. The space between the glass panes is filled with either argon gas or air. This manufacturing process ensures a high degree of insulation and solar control. Most types of glass can be incorporated into an insulating glass unit.


Laminated Safety Glass

Laminated Safety Glass is made by permanently bonding together two or more layers of glass with an interlayer or resin. If it is broken, the interlayer is designed to hold the glass together. Virtually all glass types can be laminated and the thickness and type of interlayer can be varied to provide safety ballistic, bomb or physical attack resistance. Normal laminated glass can be cut and further processed.


Toughened Safety Glass

Toughened Safety Glass is made by placing Float or DécorPatterned glass in a roller hearth toughening furnace. The glass is heated then rapidly cooled, resulting in the glass retaining high compressive stresses. There are two types of Toughened Safety Glass:

  • Fully toughened glass is four to five times stronger than ordinary glass and if broken forms small granules.
  • Heat strengthened glass has a lower residual stress and is two times stronger than ordinary glass. It is not a safety glass and if broken it forms large pieces.
  • Toughened and heat strengthened glass cannot be cut and are resistant to high differential temperatures (180–250°C).

Toughened Laminated Glass Available on order

Laminated Safety Glass is the optimum in safety glass. Each piece of glass is toughened to provide superior structural strength when compared to annealed glass. These pieces are then bonded together using either PVB or resin as the interlayer medium, to ensure if the glass breaks the pieces are held together by the interlayer.


Coated Glass

This family of high performance glasses consists of permanently bonded microscopically thin layers of metal oxides. There are two types of coating technology used in glass supplied by Viridian.

  • On line, or pyrolitic hard coated. These coatings are produced by depositing a metallic oxide gas chemical vapour deposition during float glass manufacture. This process produces extremely durable coated products that can easily be handled, transported and processed. These products typically combine Low-Emissivity and solar control, and can also provide a wide range of properties from low reflection to self cleaning.
  • Offline coating. The Airco or magnetron sputtering uses high-grade glass that is placed in a series of vacuum chambers and coated with atoms of alloys such as silver and titanium. The properties of the metals provide solar reflectance and Low-Emissivity.

Coated glasses can be toughened, laminated or incorporated into an insulating glass unit. Under certain light conditions a small degree of haze may be apparent.


Mirror

High quality Float Glass is backed with silver and protective coats of baked enamel paint. It can also include a vinyl backing for safety.


Security Glass Available on Order

This glass is designed to resist physical attack, ballistic and bomb blasts. Security Glass products are specialist laminates that use multiple layers of glass and rigid interlayers depending on the resistance required.


Self Cleaning Glass

Easy Cleaning Glass is perfect for exteriors. The glass incorporates a pyrolitic coating that dissolves dirt (photo activ) and sheds water (hydrophilic) using natural UV light and rain.
