Aluwindows24—Aluminium Window Glass

The Glazing Types of Aluminium Windows

The possible types of glazing in aluminum/aluminium windows are wide-ranging and fill aluminum/aluminium windows not only with life and provide heat insulation, but rather also give decorative, protective supervision or sound-absorbing properties to aluminum/aluminium window. With the right combination of glass and aluminum/aluminium, your windows obtain the desired function. Since great individuality prevails in metal construction, the actual glazing of aluminum/aluminium windows traditionally takes place at the building site. This usually happens after the window frames and aluminum/aluminium facade constructions are installed and plumbed. The static property of the glass is also used to align the window sash with aluminum/aluminium windows and to ensure the needed reinforcement. For the production of our aluminum windows, we use only European brand glass.

Window Glass Production

Flat Glass and Heat Coating

Each pane of window glass has its origin in flat glass. But the types of glass panes required for use in aluminum/aluminium windows vary considerably, because glass can assume widely different functions in a window. For example, in aluminum /aluminium facade structures, glass panes can act as part of a roof structure in the “upside down” area, thus providing considerable illumination. Other types of glasses find their use, in turn, as protection from falling objects. The origin of each of these glasses lies in so-called flat glass. Should such glass later receive heat-insulating properties, this is due to the glass being treated with a special coating (so-called thermal-barrier coating). Light then beams into the insulating glass in the direction of disk space and, in combination with other factors, results in the desired U-value.

Glass Pane Options—Thicknesses and Glass Types

Since glass panes are used for different purposes, aluminum/aluminium window and façade fabricators can make use of a large selection of flat or functional types of glass. Raw glass (with or without heat coated = float) in various thicknesses is used for various purposes. In most cases, glass with a thickness of 4 or 6 mm can be used, but glass that comes in thicknesses of 8, 10 or 12 mm are also used. In most cases, the thickness of the pane is dependent on wind and atmospheric pressure is adjusted accordingly, or, may provide for stability in particularly wide wheels for. Apart from the varying thicknesses, individual types glass panes such as VSG (laminated safety glass), ESG (tempered) or heat-strengthened glass (heat-strengthened glass) are available. These are used overwhelmingly for the security purposes (intrusion detection, protection from falling objects, roof glazing, sound insulation, etc.)

Isolating Window Glass Structure

Multi-Layer Insulating Glass Units

Insulating glass used today in aluminum/aluminium windows or aluminum/aluminium façades, and which is especially well-suited to architectural purposes, is made of a glass structure that essentially consists of 2 or 3 different types of glass, separated by a gap. The space between the panes for aluminum/aluminium windows can range from 8 to 24 mm and contain an effective insulation gas such as Argon or krypton. In modern aluminum/aluminium windows, it is an argon gas filling mixture that prevails, which in conjunction with the size of space between the panes provides for the required insulation values.
