What is a glazing system?

Glazing systems are glass panels that move on top and bottom of the aluminium rails. Unlike windows, where there is multiple glass units used, glazing system uses single glass. Throughout the glazing system there is no intermediate posts used which forms a large levelled opening.

Safety

Even though there is only single pane of glass used and the glass does not have a strong frame surrounding it on four sides, there is no need to worry about breakage. Unlike ordinary windows, glasses used in glazing systems are already tempered as a standard solution (reinforced through thermal processes) and for a safer use, all edges of the glasses are sanded and polished. In addition to safety, the latter gives glasses also a beautiful finished appearance.

Heat resistance

Glazing system is so called “cold system”. It means that the system itself is not heat resistant, but when closed, there is a closed space that can be heated in different ways. Thanks to that You can use balconies, terraces, porches, and other similar areas from early spring til late autumn. If You add an extra heater, for example a fireplace or gas radiator, You are able to use the room in the winter also. In addition to heat resistance, the glazed wall protects against airborne dust, snow, and birds flying to the balcony.
