Glass

Windows, Glass & Tinting supply a wide variety of glass.

 

Float Glass

ClearVue float glass is manufactured by PFG specifications Building Glass, the only float glass manufacturer in sub-Saharan Africa.  ClearVue is used in basic glazing applications and in the manufacturing of value-added products such as SmartGlass mirror, laminated glass and toughened glass.  Stock sizes of ClearVue can be delivered within one working day.

Coloured Laminated Safety Glass

ColourVue laminated glass products are made from various combinations of clear and tinted glasses and PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayers.

ColourVue is available in a wide range of colours to meet a variety of aesthetic, glare reduction and solar control demands. Coloured and patterned interlayers can be used individually or in various combinations to create colourful and distinctive glass facades, partitions and interiors.

Because the patterns and colours are encapsulated between layers of glass, ColourVue is easier to keep clean than sandblasted glass, and it does not peel like applied vinyl. ColourVue reduces damaging short-wave ultraviolet radiation and offers additional safety, security and noise control benefits. The lighter tints eliminate some solar energy and are intended for use in glazing areas where safety, glare control and aesthetic qualities are required.  The deeper tints improve glare control and provide a higher degree of solar heat elimination.

Glazing Putty

What is Easiglaze window putty?

Easiglaze window putty is superior glazing putty manufactured under strict quality control measures to the SABS 680 standard. Easiglaze putty is manufactured in two colours grey and teak to match steel and wooden window frames.

Both limestone and vegetable oils (the primary raw materials for putty) include organic compounds. The mineralogical and chemical characteristics can therefore change with each new batch of raw materials. Raw Easiglaze undergoes ongoing laboratory testing to ensure consistent product quality.

Types of Easiglaze putty

Two-part: a specially formulated drying compound (included in the bag) has to be mixed with the putty before it will harden.

One-part: a formula-driven drying product (no drying compound) normally used for DIY applications.

The drying compound formula ensures consistent chemical bonding, adhesion, and a drying time of 5 to 7 days (for contractors product) or 15 to 17 days (for DIY product).

It has a maximum glazed life of 10 years (when installed and maintained in the manner described in this document).

What makes Easiglaze better?

* Each delivery of a raw material is tested before mixing.

* Before packing, each batch of putty is laboratory checked for limestone performance, oil absorption, penetration, product consistency, adhesion, and colour.

* Easiglaze is an environmentally friendly product. Only organic compounds are used.

Laminated Safety Glass

Intruderprufe laminated safety glass makes it significantly more difficult for criminals to intrude into a building or break through a shopfront. It also prevents a simple fall against a large window from turning into a tragic accident. In addition to these well-proven safety and security benefits, Intruderprufe blocks noise and harmful UV radiation.

Intruderprufe is available in three performance variations:

  1. Normal Strength (NS) for human impact safety (0.38 mm PVB interlayer)
  2. High Penetration Resistant (HPR) for additional security (0.76 mm PVB interlayer)
  3. High Impact (HI) for security in high-risk applications (1.52 mm PVB interlayer)

Intrusion Resistance

Intruderprufe is tested by repeatedly dropping a 225 g steel ball from a height of nine metres. The impact of each drop is approximately equivalent to the blow from a hammer.

Laminated Reflected Coated Safety Glass

Solarshield makes it possible to create attractive buildings with highly efficient solar control. The combination of a metallic coating and a clear or tinted PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayer is designed primarily to keep out as much of the suns heat as possible. In addition to reducing solar heat, Solarshield also limits the amount of light entering the interior and blocks up to 99% of damaging UV radiation.

Solarshield is a laminated safety glass marked to SABS 1263-1. It can be custom-manufactured to meet various safety, security and noise reduction standards. Solarshield is available in a range of colours and three densities of coating.

The numbers S10/S20/S30 refer to the light transmission of the coating, which in turn is directly proportional to the amount of solar heat entering the building. For example, S10 indicates 10% light transmission on coated glass prior to lamination.

Suggested Applications

* Maximum solar energy control

* Curtain walls

* External solar screens

* Skylights

* Glare reduction in buildings

* Glazed partitions and screens

* One way vision panels

* Reflective glass for wall cladding

* Decorative safety mirrors

* Lift interiors

Laminated Coated Safety Glass

SolarVue provides medium solar control and a neutral, low reflective appearance in a range of colours. A thin deposit of nickel and chromium eliminates more than 55% of solar heat, while transmitting more than 45% of visible light.

SolarVue also eliminates more than 99% of damaging UV radiation.

Suggested Applications

* Medium solar energy control

* Glare reduction in buildings

* Glazed partitions and screens

Standards and Options

SolarVue is a PVB laminated safety glass marked to SABS 1263-1. SolarVue can be custom-manufactured to meet various safety, security and noise reduction standards.
