What is U shaped glass?
U-shaped glass, also known as U groove glass, is a new type of glass wall material, named “U-shaped” due to its cross section. This product is made from quartz sand as the main raw material, through high temperature melting, rolling forming and annealing cooling process. U channel glass originated in Europe with over 50 years of production history; it is one of the standard products widely used in large-scale construction projects. This product has been widely applied in Europe and North America areas, and began to be applied domestically since the 1990s in China. With design becoming increasingly internationalized, U groove glass has now been used in more than 20 thousand building projects around the world.

Performace of U shaped glass?
U-shaped glass has a greater span than flat glass, with increased mechanical strength:
1- It can be installed in both vertical and horizontal orientations without any additional support.
2- Various arc designs for facades and walls can be easily achieved.
3- The accompanying aluminum alloy framing profile can add extra structural support.
4- Other materials than aluminum alloy profiles can be used inside the building for added flexibility in installation.
U-shaped glass offers ideal optical, soundproofing and thermal insulation properties.
Introducing our U tempered glass products that are available in a wide range of coatings to produce a variety of translucent effects. Our glass can be customized to complement any lighting conditions, providing unmatched light performance for your interiors.
Not only does our U groove glass look stunning, but it is also exceptionally efficient in soundproofing. In a non-sealed state, our U glass can reduce noise up to 42 decibels, and when paired with an insulating material, the soundproofing can reach up to 44 decibels.
Our glass products also offer excellent thermal insulation, especially when installed in double layers. This feature makes our glass ideal for creating energy-efficient structures.
In addition to its technical properties, our glass has excellent refractive qualities, which can help reduce light pollution. Trust our top-of-the-line glass to brighten up your living spaces without compromising on functionality, aesthetics, or sustainability. Contact us today to learn more!

Why choose U shaped glass as curtain wall system?
Reason 1: Strength, the U shaped tempered glass curtain wall is a keel-free structure, with the two wings serving to reinforce the structure. Its strength exceeds that of regular flat glass of the same thickness by over 10 times, allowing it to act as an independent wall system.
Reason 2: Light transmittance, the U-shaped glass has a frosted pattern on the surface, which ensures light transmission while producing diffuse reflection of light. This feature prevents light pollution and provides transparency without revealing what’s inside. It protects the privacy of enclosed spaces while maintaining adequate light transmission.
Reason 3: Appearance, the 7mm U-shaped glass panels curtain wall features a strip-shaped design with clear lines. The absence of frames between the glass panels creates a clean and transparent look that is simple and fashionable. The glass can also be designed in various shapes, such as curved or polygonal, to suit the specific needs of the project.
Reason 4: Cost-saving, the texture on the surface of U-shaped glass serves as a direct decorative effect, eliminating the need for secondary decoration. This feature also makes maintenance simple, resulting in a lower overall cost.
