When considering glass materials, our technicians will determine which is the best fit for each project.
First Class Glass and Overhead Doors is a leading provider of glass materials and services for those located in Kerrville, Texas and the surrounding area. With more than a decade of experience in the glass industry, we’ve learned a lot about the best glass materials for different uses and applications. Over the years, we have determined which types to use when constructing enclosures, adding doors, and upgrading windows. Our glass materials include annealed glass, insulated glass, Lexan, and plexiglass.
In the production process of annealed glass, the materials slowly cool down to reach room temperature. The slower process prevents the formation of internal stresses, although it reduces its strength slightly. As a result, this type of glass isn’t as resistant to stress as other options, such as tempered glass. Insulated glass includes at least two panes, separated with a pocket that contains inert gas. If you’re looking for glass materials that boost energy efficiency and reduce heat transfer, insulated is the best bet. Having insulated glass doors and windows can improve the interior comfort level of a space.
Lexan isn’t actually glass, although it looks the same. It’s a flexible option that’s resistant to stress, making it much less prone to shattering or cracking. Plexiglass is also a glass alternative that’s quite flexible and strong. When considering glass materials, our technicians will determine which is the best fit for each project. We can also answer questions about the various materials available and the pros and cons of each. For your next glass project, turn to our team of glass experts.
