I've worked in a fair few glass walled office buldings in my time and noticed that the water from rain beads up and runs off much better than it does on the average house window.


Is this a factor of the type of glass used in each instance, or of a coating used on commercial buildings that is not normally used on houses?

Or perhaps just that windows of many commercial buildings get cleaned more often?

Maybe but it looks more like the effect of something like Rain-X on a car windscreen.

non clean car window vs after waxing. I can't see glass having any effect, its what's between the glass and the wet stuff

I'd guess you're on the right track. Maybe commercial window cleaners use a solution with something Rain-X like in it?

You can now get self cleaning glass which maybe a factor.
