PRODUCTS IN PRACTICE - REFURBISHMENT

BUILDING Dragon Hall, Norwich

ARCHITECT Lucas Hickman Smith

CLIENT Norfolk and Norwich Heritage Trust

PRODUCT Toughened, heat-soaked float glass

CHARACTERISTICS Structural glass balustrading has been erected to ensure the safety of visitors to the medieval trading hall, and heat-soaked glass was specified to avoid the risk of spontaneous breakage. The glass is topped with stainless-steel handrails, with steel fixings as base supports

SPECIAL PROPERTIES Heat soaking forces foreign bodies to the surface of the toughened glass, causing it to explode. If the glass survives the process it can be presumed safe
