Glass Types and Definitions

If you're considering glass replacement or window replacement, it can be useful to understand precisely what options are available to you:

  • Tempered Glass is specially toughened to enhance the strength of glass and improve integrity and strength. This safety glass undergoes special chemical and thermal treatments (tempering) that results in a type of strong glass.
  •  

  • Frosted Glass is translucent glass that offers privacy while still letting in light. The effect is achieved by acid etching or sandblasting clear sheet glass.
  •  

  • Plate Glass is, as the name suggests, flat or sheet glass that can be employed for a range of requirements including buildings, vehicles and more. Glass doors, windows and transparent walls typically use this style of glass.
  •  

  • Insulated Glass and Double Glazing is a glass replacement option that is ideal for sound proofing or noise reduction and is ideal for bedrooms, rooms facing noisy streets, offices, hotel rooms and so on. It consists of two or three sheets of glass with gas or vacuum filled space in between to improve insulation and reduce noise.
  •  

  • Double Glass also refers to a similar sort of window construction where there is trapped air or vacuum between the window layers to prevent conduction of heat.
  •  

  • Coated Glass or tinted glass options are great for glass surfaces that face the sun. These help to reduce direct solar radiation and can reduce indoor cooling costs. You can choose from tinted glass or coated glass where an optical coating is applied to the surface of the glass to achieve the shading effect.
