The history of man-made glass as a glazing material dates back almost 6000 years, when it was first utilized to add a decorative touch to stone beads. As time has progressed, the role of glass has expanded significantly and it has now become an integral part of modern urban skylines and architectural structures. The growing popularity of glass in construction has led to a steady increase in demand for architectural glass globally.
Despite its aesthetically pleasing appearance, the use of glass in construction is not without its challenges and costs, particularly in regions with harsh environmental conditions, such as the GCC. The extreme heat present in these areas can cause glass to deteriorate and discolor, leading to increased maintenance costs and reduced investment in glass-constructed buildings.
