Glass options:

Glass should be selected on the basis of thermal insulation requirement (climatic condition), sound insulation requirement (surrounding environment condition) and safety requirement. Green windows doors and windows can accommodate any type of glass as desired and required as per the clients requirements.

Following are the types of glasses which can be selected:

Standard flat glass which is generally used in windows where there is not much requirement of thermal/sound/safety. It has crystal clear finish which ensures perfect clarity of vision, which both have and reflected images appearing very bright and clear with this glass.

Tinted float / Annealed Glass:

Tinted glass which absorbs energy from solar radiation. If, therefore, cuts down the sunís heat enabling greater convenience and comfort inside the building, while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the building from outside.

Tinted float glass absorbs 30% to 45% of the solar heat incident on the glass surface-depending on tint and thickness and thus reduces the quantity of heat flowing into the baildings, lessening cooling-load on air-conditioning and saving energy lofts.

Tinted float glass prefects against glare and allows less visible light transmittance, thus, creating a soothing environment while reducing harmful ultraviolet ray penetration.

Reflective float glass:

These are float glass with metallic coating thus helping to reflect bauc the solar radiation thus taking care of thermal insulation better than tinted glass and also solar radiation. Further since it reflects the light in the day time it ensures minimum visibility from the outside.

Frosted Glass:

Frosted glass obscures the view while allowing light to pass through making it deal for privacy or aesthetic appeal.

Processed Glass:

Tempered / Toughened Glass: A very high grade tempered glass that is several orders of magnitude stronger than ordinary glass. These are flout glass which have been tempered under very high temperature, thus making them times stronger than the normal gloat glass. Due to heating they become bright and because of that when broken they shatter in to small pieces like automotive glass.

Laminated Glass: When two glass sheets of any of the above mentioned glasses are sandwiched together with one or more layers of PVB Plastic or resin it is called laminated glass. The process of sandwiching / lamination makes the glass much stronger and prevents easy breakage. Due to PVB plastic or resin in between the glass does not shatter when it breaks.

Double Glazing:-

The insulating glass is a free fabricated unit made of to glass panes separated by air gap and edges sealed together.


Triple Glazing :-

Triple glazing is the introduction of a third glass with a second air gap unit which help in providing greater insulation thereby providing greater energy saving and greater sound insulation. It is generally installed where sound insulation of 40 db is required.
