The many variations include tempered glass, which is also known as laminated glass giving extra security. There is insulated glass, which is also treated specifically to control heat loss and also the amount of noise leaving the building or entering it.
When it comes to office buildings, especially if they are multi-story buildings, the use of glass panels makes the building look ultra-modern and very distinct. So much so that it is common to see these kinds of buildings with glass running from the ground floor all the way to the top floor way up in the sky.
In addition to glass panels, you will often find that there are skylights, large windows, a sun room at the top and glass doors. All of these are meant to give an airy feeling that is also bright and inviting. With glass windows all the way up these skyscrapers, if you require the installation or replacement of a window or large glass panel you will need to call in a glazier for large projects. One of the reasons for this is that elevated glass installation calls for special equipment. If the replacement needs to be done way up high, your glazier may need to use a crane to install glass.
If the glazier you call in does not have the right equipment it may not be possible to get the job done, or the installer may put himself at an unnecessary risk just to accomplish the task. You may also want to consider the fact that if a crane is on site there may be need for road closures. This is done for the safety of passersby and will require permission from the proper authorities.
