Request a Sample/Quote

Advanced Glazings Ltd exists to help architects and building owners create beautifully daylighted buildings. You, as a glazing contractor are mission critical part of that process. We can only be successful if you are successful at building a great building and doing so profitably. We want you to come back again next time. Whether you need a submittal sample, project sample or are looking for a quotation, we are here to help you.

Ordering Samples

We can make standard and non-standard samples to suit your project requirements. Our standard sample make-up is annealed over annealed glass with a visual light transmittance (VLT) of X. Submittal of samples are typically made custom for each project. Please get in touch with us and provide us with specifications, and we’ll produce the samples you need to take you project to the next stage.

The steps to request a sample are a simple 1–2–3 process:

  1. Contact your local area representative. Representatives are listed here or you can contact our head office at Advanced Glazings, Ltd., 1-902-794-2899, or email us at samples@advancedglazings.com.
  2. Provide us with your glass make up. If you are looking for a standard sample, then you need only ask. Specialized samples will require a glass make up and a VLT %. Your local rep can assist with the VLT recommendation with a variety of methods such as a specification review or a radiance model.
  3. We always find it helpful to be as informed as possible, so if you have a specification, we can use that to ensure you get the sample you need.

Maintaining Solera®

Maintenance/Cleaning Instructions for Solera® Units

When it comes to cleaning, Solera® is like any other glass. Any cleaner approved for cleaning glass can be used to clean Solera® units. Follow common glass cleaning procedures and observe all glass handling precautions.

Precautionary Considerations:

  • Do not clean glass when it is directly exposed to sunlight.
  • Inspect the glass surface regularly for damage, residue and stains.
  • Clean glass soon after installation and monthly during construction.
  • Confirm that the cleaner to be used is compatible with the glass and adjacent materials (i.e. sealants, structural members, trim).
  • Never submerse the pressure equalization capillary tube (breather tube).

General Glass Cleaning Instructions:

  • Follow solvent manufacturer’s directions, recommendations and cautions.
  • Apply cleaner by spraying or using a clean, grit-free cloth or sponge.
  • Wipe cleaning solution in a circular motion using light to moderate pressure.
  • Rinse immediately with clean water until no cleaner remains.
  • Dry with a squeegee or clean, lint-free cloth.
  • Clean the glass surfaces from the top of the building down, to prevent dirtying previously cleaned glass below.
