What is Window Glazing?

If you’re planning on having your windows replaced in Sydney, it’s essential that you are familiar with glazing. Most people mistake glazing for improving the energy efficiency of windows, and although this is partially true, it’s not completely accurate. Glazing refers to glass used for windows and it is what is installed in the window frame.

There are several designs and different types of windows, however, they all come with either single or multiple glass panes. The majority of options with multiple glass panes have two sheets of glass. Windows that are referred to as energy efficient come with double glass panes, and they are commonly referred to as double hang windows due to their double panes.

Double Glazed Windows

A double pane or double glaze window contains two sheets of glass that have a space between them. This space is generally filled with argon gas to provide increased insulation. This is a non-toxic, odourless gas that is known as a poor heat conductor compared to air, making it better at insulating. However, the gas could leak out over time, so homeowners may be required to have it refilled after a number years.

Double glazing is currently the most widely found type of glazing used for home windows.

Triple Glazed Windows

Triple glaze or triple pane windows hold three sheets of glass with argon gas between them. This type of window offers the best quality insulation, but it is also the more expensive option when compared to other options. It is often found in cooler climates that require added insulation.

Low-E Glaze

Low-emissivity glaze, or low-E glaze, is a type of glass that is coated in an invisible layer of metallic oxide that prevents heat from passing through the glass by reflecting ultraviolet rays back to the atmosphere.

Low-E glaze is able to be applied to double pane or triple pane windows to add to their energy efficiency without making the window itself behold more weight. Windows that have low-E glaze may come with a higher price tag than their non-coated counterparts. However, these costs are usually recovered within 5 to 10 years through the resultant reduction in utility bills.

Low-E glaze can protect the home’s occupants from UV rays, although it does allow visible sunlight to enter and lighten up the room because the glaze is invisible. Its UV protection also results in furniture and artwork becoming less vulnerable to fading and damage.

It is also possible to tailor low-E coatings to either let the sun’s energy inside the home or block it out. For example, in colder areas, homeowners can choose coatings that maximise the heat transmitted from the outside, as this solar heat gain can be extremely helpful in reducing heating costs. In hot regions, in contrast, low solar gain coatings can be used to keep cooling costs to a bare minimum.

Heat mirror glazing is another high-tech glazing system that is able to match or exceed the energy efficiency offered by triple pane windows without extra weight. It is made by placing a sheet of low-E film between the panes of insulated glass.

Glazing Compound

Glazing compound is a putty with a purpose of holding pieces of glass in place in older window sashes. This compound can increase the energy efficiency of older windows by preventing drafts from passing through and sealing the space between the sash and the glass. It is not used in more modern and contemporary windows.

Glazing compound can last for many years depending on the quality of the installation work and the product itself. When the glaze begins to fall off and crack, it is time for the glazing putty to be replaced.

Windows that are functioning at a low level can be reglazed to help prevent heat loss in the home. If glass in your window has been damaged or cracked, it is best to fix it as quickly as possible by having it reglazed. Reglazing also enables older homes to hold their character by avoiding the need for a complete replacement.

Compliance with Australian Standard AS1288

Glass can be a hazardous material, therefore J & J Glass and Aluminium’s glass installations strictly comply with the requirements of Australian Standard AS1288. The standard is regularly updated and requires glaziers to stay up to date with the building code.

At J & J Glass and Aluminium we pride ourselves on safety and see it as our number one priority, not only for our team but for our customers too.
