When reference is made by your glazier to double glazed windows they are talking about a unit of glass that has two panes close together and a bar that has been placed around the edges. This bar is also called the ‘space bar’. A sealant is used to seal the edge such that moisture and air are unable to penetrate the space between the 2 pieces of glass contained in the unit. For the ultimate insulation from sound, a third pane can also be added to this unit and with it another space bar. When there are three panes with glazing it is known as a triple glazed window.
Finding a glass installer can be tricky because there are many companies advertising their services however it is important to note that many of them may not manufacture the glass or windows that they sell. That does not discredit them from doing the job of glass replacement or glass installation as needed, but going directly to a manufacturer will almost always be cheaper. As an industrial property manager or owner, you need to ensure that the glazier is properly licensed to carry out the job and has experience on large glass projects already. A reputable industrial glazing company will be happy to give you their license and insurance details and will encourage you to call their references. Do so without fail to ensure that you have covered all your bases.
If the building you are looking to install windows or glass in is an office block, you should also consider looking into glass doors and glass partitioning as well. If the office space is small, glass partitions and doors will give it a larger, brighter, more airy feeling, giving the illusion of space. For privacy you may consider frosted glass to keep away prying eyes as you hold meetings or work at your computer on private matters. It is important that you have measurements taken prior to installation so that you can get an accurate quotation of what the job will cost. With that information you can work with Magic Glass to implement your glazing ideas. Get in contact now for all your glass solution needs on 18 000 GLASS.
