4MM CLEAR FLOAT GLASS:

This type of glass is the standard grade that is used in windows and doors all over the world, it is very popular in older uPVC, aluminium and timber double glazing systems, it is a high quality annealed glass, manufactured by the float process and conforms to standard BS EN572-2. This Glass will still be used on the newer thermal insulated systems on the outer panes.


4mm SOFTCOAT + LOW E GLASS:

Soft coat glass is designed to keep the interiors more comfortable in the winter months, and improves the energy efficiency of your property. This type of glass is known as low emissivity glass or low e glass.
Soft coat products have a transparent metallic coating that reflects heat from radiators or fires back into the roomrather than allowing it to escape through the windows, at the same time it allows free heat and light from the sun(known as passive solar heat gain)to pass through the glass, warming your home and further contribution to the energy efficiency of your windows, low e glass has more of a tinted affect in direct sunlight, and soft-coat is amore discreet tint that is less noticeable on your replacement windows, to try and avoid a window moisture repair.


TOUGHENED SAFETY GLASS:

Toughened Glass is used on all doors as standard plus windows of a certain size, the glass is up to five times stronger than standard glass of the same thickness, it meets worldwide safety standards for glass subjected to accidental human impact at the highest level of severity, the glass is manufactured by a heating and cooling treatment whereby high compression stresses are set up at the surfaces with balancing tensile stresses in the center, the high compression surface stresses give the toughened glass its increased strength, when broken toughened glass will shatter into small blunt edge fragments which reduce the risk of injury and conforms to the requirements of BS 6206:1981 Class A as well as European standard BS EN12600, and is widely used by many window replacement company.


LAMINATED GLASS:

Laminated Glass consists of two pieces of glass laminated together with a very tough and durable plastic, when broken it will still remain integral due to the plastic between the glass, remaining safe even when broken.

Although it will crack easier than toughened glass it has a better security aspect as a much greater force is need to break the plastic, many commercial buildings and curtain wall systems have this glass + toughened for security and safety, laminated comes in a range of thicknesses and conforms with BS 6206:1981
