You might hear the term glass glazing when reading about glass or talking to a glass replacement company. However, it can also refer to a glass glazing compound, which is the putty that holds the glass in place. And just to make things even more interesting, glazing can also refer to the process of installing the glass glazing compound. There are three types of glazing, and they are single glaze, double glaze, triple glaze.
A single glaze (also called a single pane) refers to a single sheet of glass. These are the least energy-efficient glass.
A double glaze (also called a double-pane) has two sheets of glass, with a space in the middle. It’s the most common type of glazing.
A triple glaze (also called a triple pane) has three sheets of glass within between argon gas. It’s the best insulated, most expensive, and least common type of glazing (usually only used in colder climates that need the insulation).
When it comes to glass, glazing refers to installing glass into the frame itself. A significant benefit of having multiple layers of glazing is the improved insulating factor of the glass itself. The double-glaze glass has a spacer placed in between the two pieces of glass, this space between the glass allows for the temperature of the internal pane to remain closer to room temperature, reducing heat transfer. To further increase the insulating properties of a multi-glazed glass, the space between the glass is sometimes filled with argon gas. This inert gas is denser than the atmosphere, making it more efficient than just air.
