The glass house inside - The House of Glass - Glass Terminology & Facts

The passage of time and effect of the elements dictated that restoration occur in 2015. The major push for the replacement of this skylight system was dictated by the amount of water infiltration received during wet weather events since the gaskets and all of the seals in the ceiling system were beyond there functioning life.  In addition, the original skylights were single pane. They have been replaced with double pane glass which is safer, more energy efficient and cuts down the UV light hitting the artwork housed in the building. A generous gift from Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® covering materials and delivery of the skylight system enabled the Glass House to undertake the restoration at this time.

In most instances, the transparency of the glazing is not significantly affected by the low E coating although a very slight tint is discernable in certain circumstances, particularly from the outside.
