Though we may not notice it in our daily lives, we are surrounded by many different types of glass. The most common glass we see is float glass, but the others are just as crucial in construction, architectural art, and decoration. Here are a few of the most common types of glass.

Float Glass

Float glass is the most standard and common form of glass. It is transparent and smooth and often used in residential homes, shop fronts, and other public spaces.

Tempered Glass

Tempered Glass, also known as toughened glass, is a stronger glass with a range of visibility. It is used for things such as cell phone screen protectors.

Shatterproof Glass

Shatterproof glass is glass made with an added plastic that prevents the pane from shattering into sharp edged pieces when broken. It is used in skylights, floors, and common place windows.

Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is multiple layers of float glass placed together for higher UV resistance and soundproofing. It is used in places such as aquariums and commercial buildings near highways.

Chromatic Glass

Chromatic glass is commonly used as a color vision assistance tool for individuals who have difficulty recognizing specific colors. It can also help control daylight and transparency effectively. It is often used in ICUs and meeting rooms.

Tinted Glass

Tinted glass is glass with an added color. The added color does not affect the other properties of the glass. It can be used anywhere that an added pop of color is desired.

Mirrored Glass

Mirrored glass is a highly reflective glass that has been treated with a metallic substance to create mirror-like properties. It is often used for decoration.

Glass Blocks

Glass blocks are bricks of glass pressed together during the melting process of glass. They are often used for creative aesthetic purposes in skylights and walls.

Insulated Glazed Units

Insulated glazed glass units contain two layers of glass separated by air. They are often referred to as “double paned” and act as effective insulators because heat cannot effectively pass through them. They can be used in residential areas with higher temperatures.

Wired Glass

Wired glass is used as safety glass with the concept that the wire would catch much of the glass and prevent it from falling when broken. It is commonly made with fire retardant for high temperatures and used in schools and hospitals.
