Good Health and Well-Being

Transparent architecture and the use of glass as a building material is a surety for health, safety and well-being of humans in their working environments.

NSG Group’s range of glass products facilitates innovative, open space design trends by providing brilliant solutions for brighter buildings for example fire-resistant glazing with up to 180 minutes resistance to fire for fully glazed applications.

 

Our products can improve sound insulation and raise well-being by improving light and working conditions. Our thin glass for microscope slides helps laboratories to execute analyses for public health.

Our self-cleaning glass uses the power of the sun to help clean itself and can dramatically reduce or eliminate window cleaning, while providing clearer, better-looking windows.
