Low-Iron Tempered Glass

Brisk’s Low-Iron glass is the highest quality and clearest glass available. When it comes to interior design, we take our work very seriously using only the best quality glass. Low-iron glass is colorless in appearance and does not have green tint as found in normal clear tempered glass. At Brisk, it is our standard to use Low-Iron glass in all of our interior glass partitions and doors.

Laminated safety glass

Our laminated glass, also referred to as safety, or security glass, is used in applications where glass is required to stay intact when broken. There are many scenarios where laminated glass is the best choice. Above all, safety is the main reason. In such a scenario, the glass remains bonded to the plastic inner layer, giving it the stability after breaking. This typo of glass is mostly used in glass handrails, free standing glass walls, and security doors.

Colored Glass

If you imagine it, we will make it a reality. With nearly unlimited number of colors and designs, our glass takes design to the next level. In addition, we also provide thousands of film options that can be applied to the surface of the glass. One benefit of using glass film is the ability to remove it from the glass partitions or change it at any time. Contact us to discuss your next creative design.

Glass

Switchable glass also known as LCD glass is the most innovative type of glass on the market. With the ability to instantly switch from opaque to clear, this glass is popular in high end projects requiring privacy at a flip of a button. We often use switchable glass in our interior glass wall applications. For instance, in conference rooms or powder rooms. For more information visit our partner website Glass Apps

About Switchable Glass


Imagine an office space where both transparency and privacy are fundamental elements of workflow, organization, and establishing hierarchy within a company. If this sounds like every office you’ve ever worked in, you’re not alone.


Smart Glass partitions rely on electrical current to realign the molecules within a layer of liquid crystals display (LCD glass) to change their visual properties. When the current is off, the crystals relax and create a suspended cloud that gives people inside the privacy they need without the chore of wrestling with a wall of conventional blinds. When the current is on, the crystals contract and appear as a typical pane of see-through glass. Sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, right? When you see it in action, it will appear that way, too.


Brisk Architectural has been implementing smart glass technology for years, and is one of the industry leaders in the design implementation of switchable glass partition systems. Brisk has applied this exciting technology to swing and sliding glass door products so your design project can take on a new level of visual functionality using Brisk LCD glass.
