Various Types Of Window Glasses

Window Glasses : Glass, which comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, has limitless potential for enhancing a space, both spatially and aesthetically. Glass not only makes a room appear larger, but it also improves natural light and ventilation. With recent technological advancements, the possibilities have expanded even further. Let’s take a look at the most common types of glazing and glasses used in windows in India.

Glazing is the process of installing glass into a window, door, or wall. Glass is a functional, flexible architecture material used for decorative effects. However, the term “glazing” can also refer to the glass pane in a window, which can be single, double, or triple glazed. The more glass panes there are, the better insulated the window is. While glazing is used in architecture and construction, it also has an important role in interior design. There are a variety of options available, ranging from tempered to tinted glasses, that allow you to experiment with interior design. Furthermore, glazing glasses used in windows contribute significantly to a structure’s energy efficiency and security.

Window glass varieties

Toughened or tempered glass

Tempered glass, also known as toughened glass, is commonly found in automobile windows. It is stronger than ordinary glass because it is made from annealed glass and thermally tempered. When this type of glass breaks, instead of uneven shapes with sharp edges, tiny granular pieces are formed, which do not cause fatal injuries. Toughened glass is used in a variety of building components, including escalator side panels, balustrades, handrails, and skylight glazing, when combined with tinted or laminated glass. It’s also found in aquariums, refrigerator trays, bullet-proof glass surfaces, cookware, and bathroom shower doors. Depending on the thickness, Toughened glass costs between Rs 85 and Rs 170 per square foot on average.


Glass laminated

A polymer interlayer holds glass layers together in laminated glass. The interlayers are forme under heat and pressure, providing the material with high strength. When the glass breaks, the interlayers keep it together, resulting in a distinctive’spider web’ cracking pattern. It keeps the glass from shattering into small pieces. Laminated glass is commonly use in automobile windshields, jewellery store display cabinets, glass staircases, floors, and roofs. It is also use in buildings that are vulnerable to natural disasters such as hurricanes. Laminated glass is more effective as a sound barrier than ordinary glass. Laminated glazing is available in a variety of colours, tints, and tones and can be manufacture straight or curve for greater aesthetic versatility. Glasses are more expensive, costing between Rs 200 and Rs 800 per square foot.


Annealed glass or float glass

Float glass refers to a glass sheet manufactured from floating molten glass. It is use for designing modern windows and doors, tabletops, automobile glass, and mirrors. Float glass has excellent visibility and light transmission. It is often use as a base to create specialise glass materials, including laminated safety glass, frosted glass, and toughened glass. The surface strength of float glass provides the wind-load performance and thermal-stress resistance needed in most architectural applications. These come in different tones and opaque options with windows to optimise your interior designs. The float glass price starts at Rs 300 per sq ft and varies based on thickness and customisation.


Glass can be clear or tinted.

Tinted glass surfaces are coated with a translucent film that aids in the rejection of sunlight, thereby increasing energy efficiency. They are also use to provide UV protection. Tinted glasses are easy to clean and can be use as privacy windows at home. They are water and scratch resistant, allowing for a long lifespan. A clear/tinted glass costs between Rs 60 and Rs 140 per square foot.


Glass with low emissivity (Low-E)

Low-emissivity glass, which is commonly use in interior design, has a coating applied to one or more glass surfaces to reduce emissivity. It reflects rather than absorbs infrared radiation. As a result, it helps control heat loss in cooler climates and reduces heat inside a building during hotter climates. Low-E glasses are preferre in areas where energy-efficient glass is in high demand. They aid in the reduction of cooling costs in modern facilities.


Window Glazing Types

Different types of glazing are use in construction depending on the number of glass panes.


Windows with single glazing

Single-glaze windows use only one piece of glass and are the least energy-efficient. Single-glazed windows are ineffective at noise reduction. Such windows allow for greater heat loss and maximum natural light transmission. A single glaze window’s width ranges from 3 mm to 10 mm.


Windows with double glazing

Double-glazed windows use two pieces of glass that are separate by a vacuum to improve insulation and noise control. This is especially useful for families who have central climate control systems or air conditioners. UV-tinted or laminated glass is use, similar to that used in single-glazed windows. Double-glazing an existing window creates an effective sound barrier. The cost of double-glazing in India ranges between Rs 400 and Rs 1,000 per square ft, depending on the type of window, size, and customization.


Windows with triple glazing

Triple glass glazing windows with three glass panes provide maximum energy efficiency. The presence of additional panes aids in noise reduction. Triple-glazed windows provide better insulation than single and double-glazed windows. Such windows are preferre for building French windows or large-sized windows, as they provide better protection.

While there are numerous glazing and glass options for windows, understanding their purpose is critical. For example, a single glaze allows for maximum light transmission, reducing reliance on artificial light. It is appropriate for areas that require a greater concentration on work or art.
