Walking on glass thermal bridging refers to the concept of minimizing heat loss or gain through the use of innovative glass materials and designs in construction. In traditional building practices, windows and glass facades are often weak points for thermal bridging, where heat easily transfers between the interior and exterior of a building, leading to energy inefficiency and discomfort for occupants.To address this issue, architects and engineers have developed advanced glass technologies and designs that reduce thermal bridging. These solutions typically involve the use of low-emissivity (low-E) coatings, insulating spacers, multiple glazing layers, and gas fills (such as argon or krypton) between glass panes. These measures help create a thermal barrier that significantly improves the energy performance of buildings.Walking on glass thermal bridging signifies the importance of considering these innovative glass solutions during the design and construction of energy-efficient buildings. By doing so, we can reduce energy consumption, lower heating and cooling costs, and create more comfortable indoor environments while still enjoying the aesthetic benefits of glass in modern architecture.
