Sell more glass, save the world
In this age of Sir David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg you could be persuaded to believe that Glass is the enemy. After all who would choose a skin for their building which lets in all the heat and makes the inside so uncomfortable that a small fortune and a truck-load of carbon must be spent on artificial cooling, lighting and heating?
Do we really care about sustainable buildings?
Apparently not that much, if our new buildings are anything to go by: still too hot, too bright and too environmentally dirty.
What are tension blinds?
Tension blinds systems are built around a unique spring mechanism that constantly holds fabric flat and intelligently adapts to the surrounding environment.
Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot
Why do we keep delivering buildings that are too hot and too bright?
Daylighting Exhibition Space in Museums and Galleries
The perfect example of how natural daylight can have a huge impact on a building and its people, both positive and negative.
Choosing Fabric for Performance
High performance fabrics can have a significant impact on a building's Total Solar Energy Transmittance and Solar Gain.
The Off-Road Cycle Challenge
7 men rode 100 miles over the South Downs in 2 days, just to prove they could.
Wind Resistance for External Blinds
For external systems to perform well, they must withstand precipitation, extreme temperatures, and most crucially, strong winds.
Solar Energy Control
The interaction of light with a glass surface is a complex area of study, and one we’re constantly examining.
We have won vital backing in our plans for expansion, through the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Support Programme.
Three Peaks Challenge Accepted
In memory of our friend and founder Dr Richard Guthrie.
