Glass Installation to Amplify Your Space

Glass comes in a variety of types, ranging from simple glass to tempered glass which has been treated with heat and chemicals to make it safer in rough situations. At Frederick Glass, we install and repair all types of glass with many different features in terms of appearance, safety, and energy efficiency. Regardless of what you need, all of our glass is of high quality and will be sure to meet your needs.

Different Types of Glass

Plexiglass is a high quality alternative to regular glass. Made out of a transparent acrylic material, Plexiglass is virtually unbreakable and shatterproof –making it safer than regular glass. Plexiglass is lightweight and easy to handle, making it a great solution for a wide range of surfaces such as:

  • Windows
  • Tables
  • Greenhouses
  • Photo Frames

For a more durable product, Lexan is even stronger than plexiglass. It can even become bulletproof when it is thick enough. Used in many industry applications, it is more bendable and formable than plexiglass. Consider using Lexan for:

  • Building material
  • Signage
  • Machine protection
  • Windows susceptible to high impact
  • Storefronts

Our staff at Frederick Glass will make sure you get the best quality Plexiglass or Lexan that caters specifically to your needs.

Laminated glass is a safety glass designed such that if the glass shatters, the shards are held together instead of falling apart. This is accomplished by putting together two layers of glass with an interlayer of polyvinyl butyral. If the glass were to break, it’s held together by the vinyl, which essentially acts as a very strong glue. If you’ve ever seen glass that is broken in a “spiderweb” formation, you’re looking at laminated glass. It is great to use to prevent injury in situations where the glass could fall or human impact is possible. Other benefits are that it blocks the majority of UV radiation and it also helps with soundproofing. Laminated glass is used in situations such as:

  • Places that need to be strongly weather-resistant
  • Skylights
  • Exterior storefronts
  • Places where security is a risk

Our staff at Frederick Glass Shop will work with you to choose the best laminated glass solution to help ensure your safety.

Have you ever seen a window or patio door that looks like it has condensation built up inside it? If so, you’ve seen a piece of insulated glass that needs repair. Insulated glass, also known as double-glazing, is specially designed to prevent heat transfer and conserve energy.  Insulated glass can be double or triple-paned and is built with spacers in between the panes. This gap is filled with air or gas in order to reduce heat transfer, making this type of glass great for improving energy efficiency. It also reduces the amount of damage that UV light can cause to items in your home or office. Insulated glass is most often used for surfaces such as:

  • Windows
  • Patio Doors

Our staff at Frederick Glass Shop will help you select the best glass for your home or business.

Safety glass is designed to be stronger and to prevent injuries if it is broken. It also provides extra protection against UV radiation and different weather conditions. There are several types of safety glass such as:

  • Tempered Glass – This glass will form small pebble-like pieces without sharp edges if it breaks.
  • Laminated Glass – This glass is designed to hold the glass in place if it breaks rather than allowing it to shatter into pieces.

Safety glass is great to use in areas like hospitals, office buildings, and schools but also in your own home.

Our staff at Frederick Glass will help you determine which safety glass would meet your specific needs.
