cracking glass

Installing grey reflective 20% film on 5x10 plate glass, western exposure about 40 panes in the morning. finished installation around noon, and left.. later that day received call from building manager, that glass pane had cracked...

shot over to customer and saw 2 windows cracked, and while standing there heard others start to crack. 20 minutes later 14 had cracked and began ripping film off window as fast as possible to prevent the rest from cracking as the sun hit the windows.

nightmare, not only had to pay for glass, but reinstallation and the customer held off paying me until 3 months later (to see if anything else happened)

happy thanksgiving! :inot

Right OT, read too quick. Some guys calll BSF's SS20 or Llumar's N1020 a grey relective, cause that is close to how it looks. They both will bust up some glass in the right conditions. Maybe he was just venting... :lol

found out that the "shading" on the glass was the problem. half the glass exposed to the sun and half shaded by trees as the day progressed.

finally finished the job with cooperation of the building owner. They reglazed the windows (old frames and hard caulking) with the existing glass and we retinted the windows with a 35% silver film and resolved the problem...

expensive lesson. :thumbdown
