A glazier is a construction tradesperson who selects, cuts, installs, replaces, and removes residential, commercial, and artistic glass. Glaziers also install aluminium storefront frames and entrances, glass handrails and balustrades, shower enclosures, curtain wall framing and glass and mirror walls.
No matter what scale of operation, from replacing one window in a house to a fully glazed commercial building, the glazing solution will have an impact on the building and its users.
Choosing the right 'performance glazing' (energy efficient glass) lets you control how much heat enters or escapes from your house or building.
Studies show that a home can achieve an increase of 2 to 2.5 stars by simply going from the worst-performing windows to the best-performing windows. Even in the same location, two different homes may require different windows to achieve the same star rating.
The correct glass for your home or office can increase your energy savings and lower your carbon footprint.
Glass is the only building material that not only insulates us from temperature extremes; it can also control the passage of light and heat into and out of our homes and offices.
There are 6 main areas to consider when thinking about windows and glazing for your project:
- Natural light
- Solar heat gain
- Thermal conductivity
- Energy efficiency
- Noise Reduction
- Adult and Child Safety
Choosing the right glass makes a difference and these are the different types of glass available for various applications:
- Annealed or Float Glass
- Insulating Glass or Double Glazing
- Toughened Glass
- Laminated Glass
- Coated Glass
- Security Glass
- Screen Printed Glass
- Mirrored Glass
- Patterned Glass
- Self-Cleaning Glass
