Did you know: South Florida windows and glass doors must now pass the energy efficiency rating?
And if all of your external glass is energy efficient, you qualify for up to $500 tax credit. Combined with a lowered electric bill, this home upgrade is definitely worth considering. Glass ratings: U-Factor of 0.65 or better (lower is better) or SHGC of .25 or better (lower is better). Both factors measure how much heat can get through the glass. SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) is the new rating method.
Is a permit required for installing custom glass doors?
Yes. We'll take care of pulling all the permits for you.
Will we need to use tempered glass in our glass doors?
Likely yes. Read on for details.
Is tempered safety glass shatter proof?
You might be surprised to find out, that the answer is "no". The term tempered implies that the glass will not break into sharp shards. Instead, tempered glass is designed to break into dull round pebbles, thus keeping you safe. But tempered glass is in fact stronger than regular glass.
Is there such a thing as shatter proof impact resistant glass?
Yes, there is . The two most often used terms are toughened and heat strengthened glass. Toughened glass is the toughest of them all. Heat strengthened is less so.
And there is also laminated glass, which has a layer of PVB or EVA sandwiched between two planes of regular glass (glass in your car is made that way). Laminated glass is perfect in situations where there is a risk of shattering.
When you get in touch we can help you choose proper glass for your need.
When is the tempered glass required?
The building codes may differ, but it is usually required in the situations where someone can kick or punch the glass by accident. So if your glass extends to the floor, or is right next to a door, it likely needs to be a safety glass. Bathroom glass must always be tempered.
What are common reasons for why glass may shatter?
It could be an improper installation that puts undue stress on the glass, or an inclusion/defect in the glass pane itself. But the most common cause is a sudden and large change in temperature - keep that in mind when directing cold water on warm glass or the other way around. Nevertheless, shattered shower glass is a very rare occurrence and requires a perfect storm of circumstances. Generally, you are very safe in your shower.
What's the deal with low-iron color neutral glass?
Traditionally the glass has a slight greenish-blue tint to it. This is due to a minuscule amount of iron that has been used in its production. In recent years a new color neutral glass has appeared on the market that has no hue to it whatsoever. Fittingly, it is called color neutral glass. Whether to use it is an aesthetic choice. Keep in mind that the low iron glass can really blend into the surroundings, making it easy to run into, so it is not to be used without a consideration. Custom etching and frosting can help with invisibility as well.
What's the difference between acid etched, frosted, sandblasted, and satin glass?
These are all different types of non-transparent glass. Name difference is due to a different process used. Some processes require treatment of the entire glass surface, while others allow for stenciled designs (may be intricate or as simple as a single visibility/safety stripe).
How soon will my glass be ready?
Stock glass panels can be installed as quickly as 1 week from receiving an order, while custom enclosures generally take 3-5 weeks. In some cases, lead time can be increase due to custom finishes or the complexity of the enclosure.
