What is glazing?

Glazing is the process of covering or replacing a surface with transparent material by combining it with molten
glass, molten polyester resin, or other plastics. The opaque sheet of protection created by glazing protects your windows and doors from natural sunlight, heat, humidity and rain.

When you opt for glazing services, then not only will you have a beautiful aesthetic appeal, but you will also be able to save on your energy bills. Glazing services help regulate heat transfer inside your home as well as outside, so you don’t have to worry about cold drafts coming in through your windows!

Glass ratio (Ff)

The glass ratio is the proportion of glazing to an opaque surface in a wall. Also called window-to-wall ratio, it is expressed in percentage, and it is a key variable in façade design that affects energy performance in buildings.

U-value (Uw – Ug)

A U-value value shows, in units of W/m²K, the ability of an element to transmit heat from a warm space to a cold space in a building and vice versa. The lower the U-value, the better insulated the building element.

For windows, the U-value is denoted Uw, while the U-value of the glass is denoted Ug.The U-value (Uw) of a window depends, among other factors, on the amount of glass in relation to the frame.

Energy balance (Eref)

The energy balance of a window is the most accurate method to assess its energy performance. It is an equation that factors in the heat gains and heat losses and is weighted by the climatic conditions. In other words, Eref is calculated as the difference between the window’s g-value (the ability of the window to utilise solar heat) and U-value (the window’s ability to keep the heat inside): Eref = Gw – Uw.

When Eref is positive, the window lets more heat in than it lets out. In terms of energy, it is, therefore, best to use windows that combine a high g-value with a low U-value so that Eref becomes positive—the bigger, the better. Eref is expressed in kWh/m2/year.

Solar heat gain (Gw, Gg)

G-value (sometimes called a Solar Factor or Total Solar Energy Transmittance) measures how much solar heat is allowed through the window. If the g-value is, for example, 0.65, the window lets 65% of the solar energy pass through into the building. The lower the figure, the less solar heat transfers from outside to the interior, whereas a higher figure allows more in.

Daylight transmittance (LTg)

Daylight transmittance is specified in a percentage measure and corresponds to the amount of daylight that enters through the window. The higher the LTg value, the more visible light passes through the interior.

Edge region temperature

The internal surface temperature of windows is not uniform. The edge region temperature is the surface temperature at the edge of the windows, which is commonly an area where temperatures drop. This can lead to heat loss and condensation, so it’s an element to consider avoiding heat loss.

Linear thermal transmittance (Ψ)

The linear thermal transmittance is a quantity describing the influence of a linear thermal bridge on total heat flow. Once installed, it indicates the heat loss through a window and is measured in W/m²K.
