For those who want to reduce the weight but strengthen the durability of sheet glass, Light Glass Technology (LGT), now available from Pulp Studio, may be the answer. By laminating annealed or tempered glass to an aluminum-faced honeycomb core affixed with a z-clip, the glass can be attached mechanically to a framing system.
Mechanical connections to the wall or a ceiling can help improve overall strength and safety in many installations while reducing the per-square-foot weight of the glass. Without the clip, the laminated sheet can also be directly glued. In addition, the honeycomb adds rigidity to glass panels as thin as 1/4 inch. The new technique can also be used on any thickness of opaque sheet glass.
