QC Facades does not make glass, they make glass special. thru QC facades, ENVELOPE provides specialty glass rainscreen facade and soffit solutions that can optionally be integrated with our honeycomb core metal panel systems for ribbon window or patchwork style metal and glass new construction or reclad projects
advanced technology for the graphics or backpainting of glass allows the paint to becomes part of the glass so we can use our fully tested adhered rails for single skin applications with a blackout coating to prevent read throuugh of the rails
another popular system involves laminated glass with embeded anchors that are structurally tested to very high standards and so can be spaced quite infrequently
laminations for custom aesthetic or blast resistant applications are available and there are also many solutions for integration of LED lighting into our facades so ask us about how we can shed some light on your project's unique challenges
