- Float glass
This glass most commonly used in today's era of construction and for obtaining almost all glass products. Is available in thicknesses of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 19 and 25 mm. Possible to manufacture in a variety of colors.
- Laminated glass
Safety glass that holds together when shattered.
- Low-e (low emission glass)
Thermo-insulating glass that reduces heat loss by 60% compared to conventional insulating glass. On the surface of the glass a thin layer of is metal oxide applied. It acts as a reflector and maintains the temperature in the room. Layer is facing the interior of the insulated glass so that it is impossible to damage. Reduces the possibility of moisture condensation between the panes.
- Tempered glass
Thermo Treated glass high mechanical resistance (up to five times higher than ordinary glass). When broken, it crumbles into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards and are less likely to cause injury.
- Frosted glass
White glass with one side chemically processed with acid. It has the effect of rendering the glass translucent by scattering of light during transmission, thus blurring images while still transmitting light.
- Stopsol glass
The glass in turquoise, green and brown colour.
- Sandblasted glass
Glass for obtain visual privacy while admitting light but can also be used for imposing decorative patterns.
- Reinforced glass
The glass which in its middle has a wire inserted during the production. In the case of burglary, the glass is broken, but the pieces remain on the wire.
- Insulating glass
The most widespread form of glass. There used to be windows and doors equipped with by a single glass.
Today, all windows and doors (except indoor)are made with insulated glass. This way heat loss is reduced by double, noise influence is significantly less and maintenance is easier.
Therefore, it is more energy-efficient, more durable and safer.
It is a combination of two or more glass panes that are marginally connected using a hollow metal profile which is filled with molecular.Ball
(cells which prevent the accumulation of moisture between the panes). The final part is applying dens putty,
which is sealing the edges and so protects the space between the insulating glass and prevents condensation and clouding of the inner portion of the insulated glass.
Most often insulated glass is made of two float glass panes that are at least 4mm thick.
The interspace is filled with common air, but more often manufacturers are filling interspace with gas (argon, krypton ...). One of the features of these gases is that they improves insulation i.e. preventing the flow of energy.
The aesthetic part is very developed in the past decade and often between the glasses are placed decorative profiles of various shapes.
Gold (brass) and white slats are most commonly used.
