An Architect’s Guide to Channel Glass

This video is a primer on channel glass; an architect’s take on the material. It’s a 10-minute short course which describes:
cost, uses, physical and thermal properties, finish, color and attachment options, and special design considerations, benefits and liabilities; everything you need to begin specifying the material for your residential or commercial project.
Unlike other glass, channel glass has a high recycled content and the opportunity for improved thermal performance over standard insulated glass units.

    Don't forget the primary goals of Channel glass in larger buildings. First, larger walls with better thermal insulation in winter and low solar input in summer than standard curtain wall. Then, better fire rating in interior rated walls such as staircases. Then, of course, the filtered light as you observed.
