Glazing Specialists Portugal

When specifying specialist glazing for any location it is important to consider the climate and factors like hurricane frequency, rainfall and snowfall. 

IQ’s wide range of minimally framed and frameless glazing systems, combined with the variety of technical glazing options, allows us to manufacture glazing tailored to suit the project’s location.

Glazing Specialists for Portugal

Similar to many other European countries, Portugal does not tend to have an extreme climate or be at high risk of hurricanes. With warm dry summers and relatively cold winters, specialist glazing for Portugal usually focuses on functionality, design and overall high performance values. 

The Wall House project is an excellent example of how our bespoke glazing solutions can be specified as part of a large glazing package to enhance the design of a luxury home. 

This luxury home in Portugal features a glass-bottom swimming pool, double-height automated vertical sash windows with bespoke counterweights, and slim sliding doors. 

 For the warmer months, many of these luxury homes or high-end commercial buildings need the glazing to be opened easily, allowing for adequate airflow. During the winter the spaces still benefit from a vast amount of natural light thanks to the minimal design of IQ’s glazing systems. 

Having worked as bespoke glazing specialists in Portugal, IQ are able to manufacture solutions suited to the Portuguese climate and meet any local building regulations.
