The type of glass you choose for your windows and doors can be one of the most important choices you make. Many of the glass options discussed below can be combined to provide multiple benefits. Insulating glass can help save on both heating and air conditioning bills. It consists of two panes of glass separated by an insulating air space. The insulating value is increased if the air space if filled with an inert gas such as argon. Insulating glass also helps to reduce outside noise, and reduces condensation on the interior pane. We invite you to find out more about the different types of glass we offer below:
Low-e coatings can enhance the energy efficiency of windows and doors, reduce condensation, and help screen out the harmful upltr-violet rays that fade your furniture, carpeting, and paintings. These nearly invisible coatings can be applied to windows in different ways to reduce wintertime heat loss in cold climates or to reduce summertime heat gain in warm climates.
Tinted glass can be effective in reducing solar heat gain and glare inside a home and in filtering out damaging UV rays. In warmer climates where solar heat is the major cause of high energy bills, tinted glass has proven to be an economical way of lowering these costs, as well as improving interior comfort. Care must be given in choosing the tint that’s right for you. Some tints will lower solar heat gain while still letting through bright light. Other, darker tints can provide privacy without the use of draperies or blinds.
Tampered glass shatters into small pieces without sharp edges when broken. Building codes require tempered glass for all glazed doors and typically for any glazed area that’s less than 18 inches from the finished floor. Tempered glass is also a suitable option for any window where additional strength is required.
Impact-resistant glass is an excellent option for meeting building codes that require windows and doors to be protected against penetration by wind borne debris. Impact-resistant glass consists of two panes of glass laminated together with a polymer inter layer. In addition to providing hurricane protection, windows and doors with impact-resistant glass also offer protection against intruders, outside noise and fading UV light. Impact-resistant glass meets the same requirements for safety glazing as tempered glass.
Obscure glass admits light but can’t be seen through. It may be an ideal choice for a bathroom window.
