Single glazed glass is one layer of glass or can be known as single pane of glass. Single glazed glass is also available in improved forms, e.g. toughened glass etc.
Toughened Glass (also known as tempered glass) that has been heat-treated to induce a high surface and /or edge compression. Fully toughened glass, if broken will fracture into many small pieces (dice) which are more or less cubical. Fully toughened glass is approximately 4 to 5 times stronger than annealed glass of the same thickness when exposed to uniform static pressure loads. When toughened glass breaks it shatters into small pieces minimizing injury.
When buying, renovating or having a home built, it is important to take windows and doors into consideration as they provide light and fresh air, and offer views that connect our interior living spaces with the great outdoors. However, ordinary windows can also represent a major source of unwanted heat gain in summer and significant heat loss in winter.
