When specifying specialist glazing for any location it is important to consider the climate and factors like hurricane frequency, rainfall and snowfall.
With an extensive selection of bespoke glazing systems and a wide range of technical glazing solutions, such as low iron and solar control glass, IQ’s glazing solutions can easily be adapted to suit the project location.
Glazing Specialists for St Lucia
St Lucia’s local climate is tropical, specifically a tropical rainforest climate, with a dry season from 1 December to 31 May, and a wet season from 1 June to 30 November (referred to by locals as the hurricane season).
By specifying systems with hurricane resistance, such as oversized sliding glass doors which can be used to create hurricane resistant sliding glass walls, this type of specialist glazing in St Lucia would be effective at protecting against hurricanes.
For these types of climates, it is also essential for any ground floor glazing to have specialist drainage for any glazing to ensure efficient and effective drainage for the months with high rainfall. IQ have developed a number of our own drainage systems, answering the needs of our architectural clients.
A great example of IQ’s bespoke glazing in St Lucia is the Sugar Beach Hotel and Resort, which used our slim framed sliding doors and louvre roof shading systems were also included in the glazing package.
