Different Glass Types for Home Exterior Glass Doors
When molten glass is shaped into large flat panels, the process is called floating of glass. The name comes from how users float molten glass across a tin surface and spread it evenly so it appears in the shape of a thin glass panel. Once the panel is formed, the glass is cut, treated and upgraded to easily set into a frame. The float glass is an affordable & colorless glass used for windows, glass doors & panels.
Safety Laminated Glass
Safety laminated glass is formed by fusing two panes around within an inner layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). The fusion process takes place in a highly heated environment where super-strong panels come together. If you want the glass to stay in the frame once it breaks, safety laminated glass can fulfill the purpose effectively. Laminated glass types are commonly found in vehicle’s windshields, glass doors, etc.
Obscured glass are specific glass types which allow natural lighting to enter into your premises but do not allow outsiders or people on the other side of the door to see what’s happening on the inside. The glass type is normally used in exterior door design where security of the premises is at the core. They are available in frosted, etched & coated designs. They are popularly used in bathroom windows, glass doors, entry doors, etc.
Annealed glass is formed by the slow process of cooling down a panel to add more strength and durability in its frame structure. Unlike safety glass, annealed glass does not remain in its frame when it succumbs failure. Instead, the glass breaks into shards and large pieces. On the brightside, the glass does have some major benefits such as affordability, versatility, flexibility & a variety of styles & designs. Annealed glass is the common type of glass used in exterior doors for different commercial settings.
Glass types which have a certain color added to it falls in the tinted glass category. People normally opt-in for a tinted glass option because of a number of reasons. Some people like privacy, others prefer reduction in heat transmission from strong sunlight UV rays. Tinted glass is commonly found on vehicle windows, skylights and decorative pieces. But their application is now becoming common for exterior glass doors as well.
Tempered glass is a by-product of annealed glass heat treated to maximum durability and strength. In tempering, the door is heat treated at 1200 degrees and quickly cooled down and then constantly baked at 550 degrees. During the heating process, the glass stability is checked constantly. If the glass does not break, it is certified as a properly tempered glass and then used for exterior glass doors accordingly.
