Glass options

  • CleaR Glass

    Clear toughened glass is a multipurpose glass available in wide range of thickness. It is the most widely used glass which provides a clear view to outside as well as inside.

  • Frosted Glass

    Frosted glass has the effect of rendering the glass translucent thus blurring mages while still transmitting light. Its is used when visual privacy is required while admitting light. Usually recommended to be used in double glazing (DG) format

  • Tinted Glass

    Tinted or light colored glasses add aesthetic appeal to the house and reduce direct glare of sunlight providing a “soothing feel”. Light transmission of glass reduces depending upon tinting.

  • reflective Glass

    Reflective glass is glass that has been treated with advanced coatings to reflect heat and radiation from sunlight while allowing the natural light to come in. These glasses cut substantial light and heat and are recommended to be used in double glazing (DG) format.

  • Laminated Glass

    Laminated glass consists of two or more glass permanently bonded together with one or multiple layer of polyvinylbutyral (PVB). Used most commonly when safety is paramount. When broken, the glass pieces tend to adhere to plastic (PVB) layer.

GLAZING TYPES

  • Single Glass

    As the name suggest, Single Glazing includes only one layer of glass

  • Double Glass

    Double glass refers to two glass sealed around the edges with an air space between the two to form a single unit. The insulating air / gas between the two layers of glass improve the thermal performance of the unit.

  • Triple Glass

    Triple glass refers to three glass sealed around the edges with an air space between the two to form a single unit. The insulating air / gas between the three layers of glass improve the thermal performance of the unit.

Fenesta recommends use of toughened glass for optimum performance of windows and doors. Toughened glass is approximately 4 times stronger than annealed/float glass. Toughened glass is impact resistant and when it is broken it shatters into small, harmless cubes
