Low E Glass – Great for all round performance and energy efficiency

Glass used in double glazing windows for thermal insulation is known as Low E or low-emissivity glass (the term referring to the surface condition that emits low levels of radiant thermal energy). Made with a microscopically thin, transparent layer (thinner than human hair), it reflects long wave infrared energy for heat. Strategically placed on the inner pane of glass with the purpose to maintain a comfortable temperature and help keep that heat indoors.

Toughened Glass – Will remain strong, secure and safe, even when broken

Often known as tempered glass this type is up to five times stronger than regular glass. Designed and toughened to shatter into small blunt pieces under pressure (making it much safer than shards of normal glass), it is often used for preparing balcony doors and windows, shower doors and displays, and doors and windows for industrial buildings.

The glass achieves its properties by heating regular glass at high temperatures (650 degrees) and then cooling very quickly. The process makes it tougher and up to 400-500% more resistant to heat and shock than regular glass. Once the glass has gone through this process it cannot be recut.

Laminated Glass – Won't shatter even when smashed

Laminated glass technically has the same strength as regular glass but contains a plastic interlayer between the two panes of 3mm thick glass. With the addition of this layer, the glass being thicker, offers better insulation and resistance against shock or damage. The plastic interlayer will hold the shards in place should the glass break, so there is no hole left in the window for an intruder to get through. Laminated glass is often used on doors and ground floor windows due to these properties. It is also the same type of glass you will find in car windscreens and shop fronts.

Acoustic Laminate – Excellent for sound reduction

Sound reduction glass is another form of laminated glass, containing a special polymer layer engineered to absorb sound waves to reduce noise pollution from entering your home. This type of glass is particularly effective for those households near busy areas such as main roads and airports.

Consisting of two or more sheets of glass bonded together with one or more acoustic interlayers acting a noise dampening centre, weakening the sound as it travels through the glass. By varying the thickness of the sheets of glass, you will find better sound insulation can be achieved. Additionally, acoustic laminated glass benefits from all the safety and security properties of standard laminated glass.
