LightWise® Architectural Systems

Hurricane Resistant

If you’re designing a building to withstand a hurricane, it needs to be able to stand up to flying debris as well. Protect your building and occupants with LightWise® Architectural Systems Hurricane-Resistant Glass Block Windows. They can withstand hurricane force winds and the debris it can throw without needing shutters. This svystem consists of glass block framed by a 2 piece aluminum channel, pre-assembled in windows for easy installation. Custom sizes in 8” increments also available.

Blast Resistant

Our blast-resistant panels have been designed and tested to meet and exceed stringent government, military and international building requirements to give you the beauty of glass -- with the utmost protection. Unlike laminated flat glass, which will often crack and sometimes release fragments during a blast, there is no cracking or loss of glass in the tests conducted on our LightWise® Architectural Systems Blast-Resistant Glass Block Panels. They are the perfect choice for high-risk buildings.

Fire Resistant

30, 60, and 90 minute class of fire-resistant glass provide structural stablity and strength, while protecting objects and people from the passage of smoke, gas, and flame. Available in a wavy or smooth surface and three finishings for privacy and light control.
