This is the ninth blog is a series on the practicalities of the characteristics of glass.

This characteristic is that glass is possibly the way coolest construction material there is. We are fortunate to work in the industry which supplies the most interesting, diverse and practical component of any house or commercial building.

Around the planet architects have realised this so the amount of glass in each new home or building is increasing each year, and as a result, the quality and enjoyment which comes from living in or working in these buildings also goes up.

Many years ago a friend of mine had a wife who was depressed and suffered from anxiety. This had been an issue for most of her life. On retirement they built a new home with massive windows to let in natural light. She became much happier and many of the issues which had plagued her were reduced. I believe the windows in her home were a major contributor to this. She was living in a home she was proud of and enjoyed.   

Be proud of the industry we're a part of. Glass and windows are neat!
