Riot Glass® retrofit systems consist of custom-made security glass and framing designs that provide Low-E glass solutions for any type of building.
Energy-efficient windows offer different levels of UV protection, insulation, and heat blocking. This type of energy efficiency can be achieved in a few different ways.
One of the easiest ways to increase the energy efficiency of your windows is to replace single-pane windows with double- or triple-pane windows. Or, you can add a pane of glass on top of the existing windows.
The extra glass and the pocket of air trapped between them drastically reduces solar heat gain (the heat caused by sun shining through the windows) and improves insulation to keep cool and warm air produced by your HVAC system from escaping.
Other types of energy-efficient windows have special Low-E or low-emissivity, and UV blocking coatings. These coatings are invisible metallic layers added to the surface of an energy-efficient window (or glass door).
The special coatings only allow short-wave solar energy through and reflect long-wave infrared energy back outwards. This greatly improves the solar blocking performance of the windows.
UV coatings for windows block out the sun’s harmful UV rays that can cause skin damage or make furnishings fade over time. They can also reduce the sun’s glare, making it easier to do work on computers or perform other activities inside.
The improved performance of energy-efficient windows means that you can maintain comfortable indoor temperatures year-round. This ensures ideal working conditions inside office buildings, government facilities, and other commercial properties.
An even bigger benefit of energy-efficient windows is that they can save you an incredible amount on your monthly utility bills.
Since they prevent warm or cool air from escaping and block out heat from the sun, you don’t need to rely on air conditioning and heating systems so much.
For large commercial buildings, this can translate to hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings over the first few years after installation.
Like energy-efficient windows with heat blocking and UV coatings, Riot Glass® protects your property from excess heat. Riot Glass® glazing shields go on top of your existing glass, so you’re essentially adding a pane of glass to make your windows more energy efficient.
Riot Glass® has many of the same benefits as energy-efficient window glass, but with an extremely high level of impact resistance. Not only will it improve the insulation of your glass doors and windows, but it will protect against inclement weather, forced entry, and more.
Replacing all your glass doors and windows with energy-efficient windows and doors can be prohibitively expensive, not to mention time-consuming and inconvenient for you, your employees, and other building occupants.
With Riot Glass®, you don’t have to worry about any of these concerns. Riot Glass® is designed to be retrofitted into or onto almost any existing door or window framing system.
There’s almost never any need to replace the existing framing and glass unless the framing is very old and deteriorated.
This makes Riot Glass® a much more affordable and convenient option when you’re looking for a way to improve the performance of your existing glass doors and windows.
Once Riot Glass® is installed over the existing glass, you’ll notice how much more comfortable indoor temperatures are and how much less you're using your HVAC system to heat and cool your property.
Riot Glass® is a complete solution for improving the performance of your property’s door and window glass. Not only does it boost the energy efficiency of glass doors and windows, but it protects them from all types of breakage.
We offer a full range of security glazing shields, from containment grade (non-ballistic) to ballistic grade (bullet-resistant).
Depending on your other performance goals, you can protect your property against forced entry, burglary, smash-and-grab theft, vandalism, rioting, looting, active threats, hurricanes, windstorms, bomb blasts, and more.
Riot Glass® is extremely effective at dispersing the force of impacts, keeping the glass behind it intact, and ensuring that bad guys or the elements stay on the other side.
Our clients include high-end retail stores, government buildings, schools, hospitals, correctional facilities, religious centers, luxury homes, offices, and other commercial properties.
Every Riot Glass® retrofit solution is custom made to fit your property’s windows and doors perfectly. The high-efficiency window glazing looks and feels like normal window glass, so you won’t even notice it’s there.
More importantly, it won’t significantly alter the outward appearance of your property or hurt its curb appeal. Riot Glass® is just as transparent as your existing glass, so it doesn’t block out natural light, inhibit views, or make window shopping difficult.
Riot Glass® can also come with an abrasion-resistant and chemical-resistant coating to protect your windows from marring and vandalism.
