Different Types of Window Glazing
Different Types of Glass Used in Window Glazing
Float glass is a special type of glass where a molten form of the glass is turned into large flat glass panels. The process requires the floating of the molten glass on a tin panel. These glass types are easily modifiable by a glass company to fit your exact requirements. Float glass forms smooth and thin glass panels which are effective for different custom glass windows and custom glass doors.
Obscured glass offers light transmission but ensures maximum privacy by having a texture or frostiness effect on the surface. Obscurity in such glass types is achieved through a complicated process of acid-etching, frosting, or coating the surface. A person might see through the glass but nothing more than vague shadows of the people and things on the other side.
Any glass type which has a color added to it falls into the tinted glass category. The normal color types used in NYC homes and buildings are bronze, green, grey, and blue. Not only are they great for adding design & aesthetic value to your home and businesses, but the tint also reduces the sunlight from entering your premises. The tinted glass also has heat-absorbing effects and reduces the sun glare.
Safety Laminated Glass
A special glass type that holds together even when it shatters. The layers of glass material are bonded so that it holds the glass together when it succumbs to high-stresses. The extra strength & durability of such glass comes from two or more panes being fused, creating a security-enhanced surface of the panel.
Annealed glass is formed when floating glass is heated above a certain temperature and cooled down to a point without being quenched. The process of creating such glass is slow and meticulous. Annealed glass can break into shards and bits when subjected to stress, and therefore, many building codes restrict the use of annealed glass for homes & businesses in NYC.
Tempered glass is basically annealed glass but with a higher strength coefficient. They are more likely 4 to 6 times more strength induced than normal glass. Tempered glass types are created by the heating glass up to 1200 degrees and quickly cooled down to normal temperatures. The method tests the durability of the glass and ensures if it’s workable for places with glass requirements at higher altitudes.
Mirrored or Reflective Glass
In the mirrored or reflective glass, the panel gains a metal coating on one of the sides. It is then sealed with a protective sealant. It does not absorb heat or radiation but merely reflects it just as a mirror would. You get reduced light transmission. The glass is abundantly used in decorative capacity than utilitarian.
