Glass Information


Laminate glass, created by bonding two pieces of glass together with an inner layer of rugged, transparent plastic, is widely used in auto windshields. Although it is transparent, this tough film is 99.9% effective in blocking ultraviolet rays, prolonging the life of your furnishings. Laminate glass provides superior noise reduction, reducing sound transmission by as much as 50% when compared to ordinary glass. If broken, the glass will adhere to the plastic inner layer, helping to prevent injury caused by shards of glass, therefore making it safer than other types of glass.

Tinted glass works to reduce heat transfer by filtering out ultraviolet light and infrared radiation. Because tinting can also reduce the amount of light transmitted, it is reserved primarily for warm climates, or for windows with a southern or western exposure. Tinted glass may also be combined with LoE2 for maximum energy efficiency. Galaxy Windows offers Bronze, Green and Gray tinted glass options.

Tempered glass, sometimes referred to as safety glass, is 4 to 5 times stronger than ordinary annealed window glass. This provides an extra measure of protection for your family. When tempered glass breaks, it breaks into small pieces that are not sharp or jagged. In the event of an accident, someone is much less likely to be hurt.
Obscure glass offers privacy where window coverings are not desired, in areas such as bathrooms or for use in sidelights. Obscure glass provides a translucent, rather than transparent appearance.
