About window glass

Window glass is a transparent and sturdy material used to seal the openings of windows while also providing a visual connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. It is usually made of silicate glass, which has good light transparency and durability.

The types of the window glass

There are some common types of window glasses. Tempered window glass refers to high-strength glass formed by reprocessing the original float glass, which has the characteristics of high strength, high-temperature resistance, and high safety. When damaged by external forces, the fragments will form small, obtuse angle particles resembling honeycomb shapes, which are less likely to cause serious harm to the human body and belong to safety glass. Hollow glass: It is a high-efficiency, soundproof, and heat-insulating glass made by bonding two or three pieces of glass with a high-strength and high-airtightness composite adhesive to an aluminum alloy frame containing a desiccant. Hollow glass has good insulation, sound insulation, heat preservation, anti-condensation, reduced cold radiation, and safety performance, and can also play a role in energy conservation. It is warm in winter and cool in summer and always maintains a constant temperature. Besides, there are other types of window glasses, such as laminated window glass, Low-E glass, and so on.

How to choose window glasses?

Each type of door and window glass for sale has its advantages and disadvantages. Ordinary flat glass is inexpensive, but its safety is poor; Tempered glass has strong impact resistance but is prone to self-explosion; Laminated glass has good anti-theft and bulletproof effects, but it is relatively expensive; LOW-E glass can isolate ultraviolet and infrared rays, but it is also relatively expensive. Therefore, when choosing, it is necessary to weigh and choose based on actual needs. When choosing door and window glass that is suitable for the family's use, it is necessary to consider actual needs and budget situation. If safety performance needs to be improved, laminated glass can be chosen. If people want energy conservation and environmental protection, they can choose LOW-E glass.

How to replace window glass?

The window glass replacement is important. First, determine the location and size that need to be replaced in order to prepare the necessary tools and materials. Before replacing the glass, it is necessary to clean the dust and dirt on the surface of the window to make it easier to replace the glass. Then, use a cutting pad or blade to remove the glass from the window. If using a blade, make sure to be careful when cutting to avoid damaging windows or glass. Place the glass in the correct position and secure it with a glass installation tool. For tempered glass, it is necessary to use an impact drill or hammer to compact it. For non-tempered glass, it can be fixed with glass mounting plates or expansion screws. Before installing the glass, it is necessary to fix the window frame in place. If the window frame has aged or damaged, it may need to be replaced. Before replacing the glass, it is necessary to check whether the window is safe and ensure that the connection between the glass and the frame is firm. After all the glass and frames are installed, it is necessary to check if the windows are secure and ensure that there are no signs of looseness or detachment.
