We replace glass packets in plastic, wood, aluminum windows and doors, facade systems of varying complexity.
In most cases, the need for a change in glass packet occurs when glass breakage occurs (mechanical damage to the glass packet). But there are cases when the glass packet is "self-made". Such "self-destructive" fragmentation occurs for two reasons - incorrect installation of a window or door or from high temperature fluctuations, so-called "thermal shock".
Also, glass packs are changed to improve the functionality of a window or door already installed by installing additional ventilation systems. At the request of the client, we modify insecure, fragmented glass packages. Instead of old glass packages, we put new, better-performing features.
At present, there is a huge variety of glass packages - from the simplest and most popular glass packages that are likely to be found by anyone in their homes (selective 4-16-4), to large-size shop windows and complex structures or shapes - non-standard double-glazed units with tempered, enamelled glass , (glass-coated paint used for structural glazing). To improve the sound / thermal insulation properties of a window / door, one or two camera glass packets with different glass thicknesses (4mm, 6mm, 8mm) and spacing between them (6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 16mm, 18mm, 20mm ; 22mm).
Techniques for improving the sound insulation properties of glass packets:
The main factors that determine the sound insulation of a glass pack are:
glass mass (the larger the glass, the lower the sound conductivity);
the configuration of the glass must be asymmetrical (glass of different thickness used);
special glass (laminated glass soundproofing film);
use of a special gas glass package;
Distance between the glasses (the larger).
Therefore, where there is a need for very good sound insulation, it is advisable to choose glass packs with as thick glasses as possible (6, 8 or 10 mm). Even better, at least one of them has a soundproofing film, and the distance between the glasses is 16-20 mm.
Heat is one of the main requirements for modern windows.
Techniques for improving the thermal insulation properties of glass packets:
The following thermal effects contribute to the greatest thermal effect:
use of selective glasses;
optimization of the distance between the glasses (16mm);
filling gap between glasses with inert gases (argon, krypton);
Currently, the most popular are TGI plastic frames (plastic, coated with stainless steel). Compared to aluminum frames, the latter reduce the thermal bridge on the edge of the glass, reducing the risk of condensation and mold formation. Extending the window frames lifetime. This frame saves 4,1% of the heat.
Maximum thermal efficiency can be achieved in two-cell double-glazed units with two selective glasses and a gas filler.
In choosing glass packages in terms of energy savings, it is recommended to consider not only the heat transfer coefficient U but also the total solar energy and light transmittance factors.
For glazing large areas, it is best to use the new generation of "sun control" glasses, which provide high thermal properties and does not prevent direct sunlight.
Sometimes there is a need for a transparent glass packet to be replaced by decorative, for transparent prints, transparent matt, yellow, bronze, bronze matt glass.
The problem of protection from heat arises in rooms with large windows on the south and west, and can be solved by replacing ordinary glasses with a glass pack whose outer glass is a stained, reflexive or solar control glass.
Tinted or dyed masses. It is a glass packet whose outer functional glass is a tinted glass in the mass, which gives the opportunity to choose the desired shade of the glass and the absorption of solar energy to the inside of the room. Disadvantages - limiting the entrance of light into the interior of the room, on a sunny day, the sunlight heats up and starts to emit heat and may be short of heat, so they need to be tempered.
With reflective coating. It is a glass package with an outer functional glass that is transparent or tinted and has special light and solar reflecting coatings. Unfortunately, the reflective glass also reflects sunlight, which means the room lighting is diminishing again.
The most recent glass that is currently gaining momentum in Europe, visually almost unchanged from clear glass, but effectively reflects the sun's rays, while helping to save heat in the winter, are sun-tinted glasses. This glass spends only a certain proportion of the sun's radiation, which provides sufficient lighting but does not allow the room to overheat. Using sun-glasses, you can even feel comfortably, but also admire the view of the window, as you will not need to cover the window with curtains or green light.
Safety glasses are used to prevent breakthroughs. Such glass packets are those that use tempered, laminated or wire-reinforced glass.
The tempered glass is 4-5 times stronger than the standard one, and when it is released, it is smeared into small pieces of beech edges. It should be used in rooms where glass can be damaged due to human activities in buildings (eg entrance doors), as well as in certain critical areas. Where and for which safety glass to use, you should consult with designers.
Laminated glass is a glass that has been burned with a special film. After impact, the glass breaks, slips. Glass stains stick to the film.
Armored glass - The strength of such glass is increased by using a wire mesh that holds glass joints in place.
Replacing the glass packet is a complex job requiring professional skills. Whether or not the glass packet will be measured and installed will depend on the further effectiveness of your window or door operation. The price of a glass packet replacement depends on the number of glasses, their color and other specific factors. Our company specialists will professionally and quickly carry out glazing works and provide a guarantee.
