Currently the glazing industry offers a wide range of types of special glass for certain areas of a residential or commercial structure that you may not know and can be confusing when remodeling your space. But don't worry, here we are going to give you the appropriate information so that you are clear in that situation.

You can see that many commercial buildings, offices and even residences have this beautiful material in the decoration that not only gives a superior beauty, but it is also 100% functional for certain events. For example thermal or acoustic agent. But make yourself comfortable, read on and find out what type of glass is ideal for your space. Here are the most common types of glass on the market:

Some are suitable for interiors and others special for exteriors. Follow us.

For interiors:

Lacquered glass.

Consists of the application of a special high quality paint on one side of the glass. It helps to convey a bright and creative look for walls and furniture. Enhanced by the glass, the color brightens interiors and enlivens the environment with reflections and brilliance. Applications:

  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Living rooms
  • Offices
  • Doors 
  • Walls
  • Closets

The final result, an innovative and fresh interior environment.

Safety glass.

We refer especially to laminated glass that you can use in interiors and exteriors. It consists of 2 layers of glass sandwiched with a flexible PVB interlayer. The PVB interlayer filters the sun by eliminating up to 99% of UV rays while allowing the important visible light to pass through.

The bond between the glass and the interlayer can absorb accidental human impact. 

In the event that the glass breaks, the shards adhere to the interlayer thus minimizing injury to people. This glass also offers acoustic insulation properties.


Tempered glass.

Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that results from controlled thermal or chemical treatments. This process makes the glass 4 to 5 times stronger than normal glass. 

In times of breakage, tempered glass shatters into small fragments that cause minimal damage to people. As a result, it can be used for a variety of interior and exterior applications with ease.


It is a kind of smart glass designed to acquire a transparent or opaque shape at the push of a button. Applicable in doors, windows, skylights and partitions that can provide greater privacy and aesthetics.

For exteriors:

Insulated Glass.

Insulated glass consists of two or more panes of glass separated by an air space and an aluminum or other spacer. The combination of two panes of glass and the trapped air is what makes insulated glass a superior method of glazing from an energy standpoint.

By installing this glass, you are guaranteed to reduce heat buildup in the summers and heat loss and condensation in the winters. Thus the most latent benefit is a significant savings in heating costs, air conditioning, reduced UV transmission, increased resistance to wind load....


This type of glass is useful to prevent light from entering your space. It is available in a wide range that meets all needs and provides excellent value for money. 

Tinted glass

If solar heat is a problem for your space, installing tinted glass is the right way to go. It absorbs 30% to 45% of solar heat and helps reduce energy costs. It is very flexible and can be used to incorporate new design trends into your space.

Reflective glass classified into:

Soft-coated reflective glass.

This glass is manufactured by depositing metal particles on the surface of the glass through a chain reaction in a vacuum vessel. This glass is also known as soft-coated glass. It offers better shading coefficients than any other pyrolytic coated glass.

Hard-coated reflective glass.

Hard-coated glass is very durable and can be easily heat-treated. This allows it to be bent to requirements and can be purchased in different sizes, thicknesses and is available in a variety of colors.
