Glazing Services and Glass Replacement for Property Owners and Managers

Common types of glazing that are used in architectural applications include clear and tinted float glass, tempered glass, and laminated glass as well as a variety of coated glasses, all of which can be glazed singly or as double, or even triple, glazing units. Ordinary clear glass has a slight green tinge but special colorless glasses are offered by our manufacturers.

Float Glass
A sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal, typically tin, although lead and various low melting point alloys were used in the past. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces.

Toughened or Tempered Glass
Type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces into tension. Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards as plate glass creates. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury.

Insulating Glass (IG)
More commonly known as double glazing or double-pane, and increasingly triple glazing/pane, consists of two or three glass window panes separated by a vacuum or gas filled space to reduce heat transfer across a part of the building envelope.

Glazing can be mounted on the surface of a window sash or door stile, usually made of wood, aluminium or PVC. The glass is fixed into a rabbet in the frame in a number of ways including triangular glazing points, putty, etc. Toughened and laminated glass can be glazed by bolting panes directly to a metal framework by bolts passing through drilled holes.

There are many types of glass we can use for your storefront. Many of the common types of glass have features that make it a great choice for any type of business. If you are considering updating your storefront with a new design, then there are many types of glass you can choose from. Clear glass is the most commonly used option for the storefront of any type of business, which allows anyone to see what is inside the building or business.

Tinted Glass
There are many different grades, shades, colours, and thicknesses of available window films built to offer solutions to a variety of challenges. Window films are a retrofit upgrade for existing glass that can be used to address problems inherent to glazing, including:

– Heat and glare reduction
– Thermal insulation
– UV filtration
– Safety and security
– Privacy
– Decoration, Signage and branding
– Protection from graffiti

Window films are an extremely cost-effective method to reduce heating and cooling costs in existing buildings by reducing the amount of heat transfer through glazing.

Security Glass
This type of glass is becoming more popular for storefronts because of its ability to resist shattering. If the glass does break, then an external film or an internal laminate holds the window together.

Toughened Glass
Toughened glass is processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering, by design, creates balanced internal stresses which causes the glass sheet, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks of similar size and shape instead of splintering into random, jagged shards.

Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is layers of glass and plastic. When laminated glass is broken, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass, which crumble into small pieces. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its toughening prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic “spider web” cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass.

Tempered Glass
Glass that is tempered is another type of safety design used for a storefront. This glass is treated with a chemical or thermal application to give it increased strength. The result is glass that breaks into chunks instead of sharp pieces.

Double Glazing for Thermal Insulation
Glass used in double glazing window for thermal insulation is known as Low E, or low-emission glass. It has a transparent metallic coating that works in two ways to economize heating energy. The dual action coating reflects heat back into the room, whilst allowing heat and light from the sun to pass through.

Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is comprised of one or more inter-layers, sandwiched between two or more sheets of float glass. The inter-layers are composed of a PVB (polyvinyl butyal) laminate, or cast resin.

Glass Against Vandalism and Infraction
Security glass offers protection against aggression and can act as an important deterrent against vandalism and infraction.

Acoustic Glass
Acoustic glass considerably reduces outside noise, especially near busy areas such as motorways, main roads and airports. When used in overhead or roof glazing, double glazing window also provides insulation from rain impact noise. It can be used for interior sound insulation needs, such as office partitions and meeting rooms.

Toughened Glass
Toughened, or tempered, glass is four to five times stronger than ordinary float glass. If it is broken relatively harmless fragments, known as ‘dice’, are formed which are unlikely to cause injury.

Safety Glass
Safety glass is now mandatory in some areas of the home, as well as throughout some types of buildings such as schools. Glass used in roofs must also meet safety requirements in case of an object falling on to the double glazing window which could cause fragments falling below.

Colorful Glass
Decorative glass for glazing can be manufactured in a variety of ways to give a wide choice of patterns, textures, colors and opacity. Decorative glass effects can be created on double glazing window panels by silvering, tinting, acid-etching or applying ceramic paints. The design can offer partial or total coverage, for improved aesthetics and privacy.

There are many options of glass partitioning ranging from the framed aluminum systems to the frameless glass walls.

Glazed framed partitioning systems are available:

Full height glass (floor to ceiling)

– Glass frosting can be added if the privacy is required.
– They can be double-glazed with a blind fitted within the cavity of the glass or if single-glazed with the glass offset so the blind can be fitted within the bevel.

Half glazed

– With a solid partition wall below it will allow for desks and small storage units to be neatly placed against both sides of the wall to make your office space larger.
– Having a solid wall to door head height then the glass above will allow you to let light into the room but still have total privacy.

Solid glass option

– This will still allow for the office desks and storage at low level with glazed partitioning above

What are the Frameless Option Benefits?

– Full visibility within the office.
– Modern look.

Strata housing is more than just condos. Strata housing can also include: duplexes, townhouses, fractional vacation properties – even single family homes in bare land strata corporations (“strata subdivisions”).

In addition to strata housing or residential strata, there are also commercial, industrial and mixed use strata developments (e.g. restaurants, retail space, hotels, parking lots, offices, stables, marinas, etc).

While some strata developments are solely commercial or residential, many strata developments are a combination of commercial and residential strata (mixed-use). Strata developments may also include air space parcels with their own set of legal and contractual responsibilities.

Strata corporations may also be divided into sections. In addition to belonging to the strata corporation, sections must have their own executive, annual general meetings, budget and may also have their own bylaws and rules.

Strata developments can also be either freehold or leasehold. It is important to understand the specific legal responsibilities attached to these different types of strata tenure and the fair market value (FMV) of the strata leasehold.

Here are a few examples of windows we work with:

Casement Windows
They offer excellent ventilation and keep the area inside cool and breezy during a hot day.

Awning Windows
These windows are similar to casement windows, but they’re hinges are found at the top. When they’re opened, the glass can be used to create shade or even cover people under it from the rain.

Picture and Fixed Windows
Picture windows are beautiful, big windows that have big glass areas and minimum frame width. These windows don’t open, making them a good choice for empty walls or areas where you feel needs a fresh, open feel. The glass can even be used as a menu.

Gliding Windows
This window lets you move one of the panels to the side to open it. It’s very easy to open and you don’t need to project it outwards so it doesn’t take up more space.

Vertical Slider Windows
These are like picture windows but with sliders that you can move up and down to open the window. A spring is hidden in the frame which holds the window in position so it doesn’t close due to gravity.
