What is Glass Glazing?

Glass glazing isn’t just sticking any window pane in place. Skilled professionals choose the perfect glass type and thickness for your project. They then secure it using special materials to create a beautiful and weatherproof result for windows, doors, walls, and more!

  • Materials: Glass comes in various types, each with its own properties. Common options include clear float glass, tinted glass, laminated glass (for increased strength and security), and tempered glass (stronger and shatters into blunt pieces for safety).
  • Techniques: The specific method of glazing depends on the application. Fixed panels are directly secured within a frame. Retractable glazing systems use tracks or rollers to allow for opening and closing. For doors and windows, specialized glazing techniques ensure proper weatherproofing and smooth operation.
  • Benefits: Glass glazing offers many advantages. It allows for increased natural light, improves energy efficiency (depending on the glass type), enhances aesthetics, reduces noise pollution, and can even create year-round usable spaces like patios and sunrooms.

Glass and Glazing System Options for Your NOLA Property

Here’s a breakdown of some popular choices:

Glass Options:

  • Clear Glass: A basic and versatile option offering excellent light transmission. Ideal for windows, doors, and other applications where a clear view is desired.

Glazing System Options:

Toughened Glazing

  • Laminated Glazing: Provides superior strength and security compared to standard glass. In case of breakage, the inner layer remains intact, offering protection from accidental impact, vandalism, and even burglary attempts.
  • Toughened Glazing (Tempered Glass): Strengthens the glass through a heat treatment process. If broken, it shatters into small, blunt pieces, minimizing the risk of injury. Ideal for applications where safety is a primary concern, like doors and skylights.
  • Insulated Glazing (Double Glazing): Features two or more glass panes separated by an air gap. This creates a thermal barrier, significantly improving energy efficiency and reducing noise pollution. Perfect for windows and walls, especially in areas with extreme temperatures.

Additional Option:

  • Guillotine Glazing System with Vertical Operation: This unique system features motorized, drop-down glass panels ideal for interior applications. It’s a space-saving solution for windows and even bi-folding or patio doors, allowing for precise control over natural light.
