When specifying specialist glazing for any location it is important to consider the climate and factors like hurricane frequency, rainfall and snowfall.
IQ offers a wide range of glazing solutions and technical glazing options to design glazing that has been adapted to suit the location.
Glazing Specialists in Barbados
Although IQ work all over the Caribbean, we are often specified for projects in Barbados. Highly glazed villa designs were often avoided in the Caribbean as large glazing elevations could cause overheating inside and the glass was not an effective barrier against strong winds or hurricanes.
However, this is no longer the case and by utilising modern advances in glazing technology, IQ are able to design specialist glazing in Barbados with solar control coatings and dynamic glazing solutions to prevent overheating.
IQ can also design bespoke glazing solutions for Barbados projects that are hurricane resistant, enabling them to withstand extremely high wind loads. Even structural glass walls and double-height sliding glass doors can be specified as hurricane resistant glazing systems.
Specifying IQ for your project over bespoke glazing specialists in Barbados has many advantages such as high-quality, European manufactured glass and British project management skills.
