Glass Options

Glass is an important component that impacts the functionality of the window, Glass should be selected on the basis of thermal insulation requirement, sound insulation requirement and safety requirement. All of our windows and doors can accommodate any type of glass as desired and required as per the clients requirements.

Color

  • Frosted Glass

    Frosted Glass

    Frosted Glass is produced by the sandblasting or acid etching of clear sheet glass. It has the effect of rendering the glass translucent by scattering of light during transmission, thus blurring images while still transmitting light.

    Colored Glass

    You can order glass designs in standard color palettes, or create custom combinations.

Materials

  • Float Glass

    Float glass is is superior quality of flat glass having characteristics of excellent surface, uniform thickness, high optical clarity and bright appearance.

  • Bulletproof Glass

    Bullet Resistant Glass is made jointly by the multilevel glass and pile. Total thickness varies from 20mm to 50mm. According to the difference between the thickness of bulletproof glass can resist pistols effectively, shooting of different firearms, including submachine-gun and rifle.

  • Laminated Glass

    Laminated Glass is made by adding PVB membrane between glass plies and then heating in autoclave. Laminated glass is a kind of safety glass and is hard to break. The glass may be retained in its frame even if being broken.

  • Hi-Trans Low-E Glass

    This type of Low-E glass has shading coefficient Sc≥0.5 which does not reduce too much solar heat. It is ideal for the northern area because it greatly saves heating costs.

  • Solar Control Low-E Glass

    This type of glass has shading coefficient Sc<0.5 which can reduce solar heat transmission. It is very suitable to be used in the southern area where air conditioner is used for cooling.

  • Low-E Insulating Glass

    This type of Low-E coating keeps away solar heat from outdoors while allows good natural lighting indoors. In winter, it prevents indoor heat from getting out of room through the glass so as to conserved building energy.

  • Tempered and Heat Strengthened Glass

    Float glass is is superior quality of flat glass having characteristics of excellent surface, uniform thickness, high optical clarity and bright appearance.

  • Fire Resistant Glass

    This new type of glass effectively provides a transparent fire wall and rated protection against heat, flame, smoke, and hot gases. It also prevents dispersion of high-temperature toxic gas, making fire fighting a little easier for firefighters.

  • Insulated Glass

    Insulating glass comprises two or more plies of glass that are separated with aluminum spacer fully filled with desiccant, and the sides are sealed with high-strength sealant. Various types of glasses can be used to form insulating glass according to demands.

  • Reflective Glass

    This type of Low-E glass has shading coefficient Sc≥0.5 which does not reduce too much solar heat. It is ideal for the northern area because it greatly saves heating costs.

  • Smart Glass

    This type of glass has shading coefficient Sc<0.5 which can reduce solar heat transmission. It is very suitable to be used in the southern area where air conditioner is used for cooling.

  • Self-Clean Glass

    This type of Low-E coating keeps away solar heat from outdoors while allows good natural lighting indoors. In winter, it prevents indoor heat from getting out of room through the glass so as to conserved building energy.

  • One-Way Glass

    This type of Low-E glass has shading coefficient Sc≥0.5 which does not reduce too much solar heat. It is ideal for the northern area because it greatly saves heating costs.

Layer

Single-pane windows are made with a single layer of glass. They come in all of the same styles and materials that double-pane windows do, but they are not as efficient at keeping out noise or seasonal temperatures. Their initial cost is less, which makes them a good choice for those who need to stay within a strict budget, but over time, energy bills will be higher.

Double-pane windows and triple-pane windows have panes taht are separated from each other by a spaced filled with air. That air traps winter’s colder air or summer’s heat in between the two window and forms a barrier that blocks the heat and cold from entering your home. The energy savings over single pane windows can be as much as 24 percent in cold climates during the winter and 18 percent during the summer in hot climates. That results in lower energy costs and less noise.

Thickness

P07 S06 img

The vast majority of residential windows use Single Strength glass which is 3/32” thick. For larger windows, Double Strength, or 1/8” thick glass may be required. For extremely large residential window it may be necessary to use 5/32” or 3/16” thick glass to assure adequate wind-load resistance. At ROPO, our engineers will decide the thickness based on the energy code in your area.
