Why choose BelAire low iron glass? The difference is clear.
Regular glass has a slight green tint that becomes more noticeable when the glass is thicker. In many applications such as glass pool fencing, glass tables, shop windows, entry doors, or display cases, clarity becomes important.
BelAire low iron glass is specially made for exceptional clarity and is virtually tint-free. Low iron glass is often referred to as extra clear or water white glass.
What makes BelAire low iron glass so pure?
One of the main ingredients in glass is silica sand, which has naturally occurring iron oxides. These cause the greenish tint in glass. BelAire low iron glass is made from a high grade of silica sand that is almost completely free of iron oxides. By reducing the iron content, the greenish tint is eradicated, and light transmission, brightness, and clarity are increased.
Our low iron glass can have as little as 10% of the iron content of regular glass, allowing it to transmit 91% of light, compared to 83% for regular glass.
Although the raw materials are different, BelAire low iron glass is manufactured the same way as other glass. It can also be pressed, cut, polished, tempered, and worked like normal glass. It can be used wherever regular glass would be used, for interior and exterior use in commercial buildings, pool fencing, and glass tables. Once it has been toughened it can not be altered.
It’s about your family, security, privacy and lifestyle. BelAire has recognised this and brings you New Zealand’s most advanced line of modular designer fencing.
The modular construction allows features such as oriental slats, flat panels, wrought iron, or trellis; water features; lighting; and your choice of textured coating. Your designer fence can be as unique as you want it – the possibilities are only as limited as your imagination. BelAire also has a standard range of aluminium infill louvres, and 60 x 30mm aluminium slats that can be powder coated to a colour of your choice.
BelAire Designer Fences are made from materials that are light weight yet structurally strong. Our BelAire walls will easily resist the impacts of every day domestic life, such as ball games, and bikes. As opposed to heavier alternatives, even if struck severely enough to damage it, there are no dangerous shards that may injure anyone nearby. The BelAire Designer Fencing system is also backed by a factory warranty of 10 years against faulty manufacture.
BelAire fences are very easy to assemble; two people can easily handle the panels, and can on average put up 20-25m of 1.8m high BelAire Classic wall each day. This is the case even in difficult-to-access areas such as backyards or annexed ground. Step by step instructions are provided, but if you’re not confident yourself or don’t have the time, we can recommend our Installation Agents, or any builder will be amply capable.
