GlassecViracon has a success story driven by a non-negotiable standard for quality and value for the needs of the existing architectural market: The Faria Lima Plaza. Approximately 247,000 sq. Ft. (23,000 m²) of bronze-colored laminated solar control glass and jumbo-sized low-iron heat-strengthened laminated glass, with an average weight of 1388 lbs. (630 kg), were customized by GlassecViracon. The quality requirements requested in this Project, mainly related to color and distortion inherent in heat-treated glass, were more restrictive than current building code standards. Several meetings were held with suppliers, consultants, and customers throughout the supply chain to adjust the qualitative criteria to meet the desired expectations. It is essential to highlight that the quality standards in this Project were only possible due to the structure of quality controls that GlassecViracon has in its raw material procurement and production processes. Beginning with using a spectrophotometer measuring the raw glass received, we use laboratory analysis and management throughout the various stages of production.
