To make glass stronger, manufacturers expose it to prolonged firing. Tempering gives it incredible resistance to impact and deformation. This is why even all-glass doors are safe!
Modern technology makes glazing energy efficient. Glass quality is key. Focus on the heat transfer coefficient, which is calculated as U [W / (m2 · K)]. It should not be higher than 1.3 W / (m2 · K) for the entire glazing. Generally, the lower it is – the less heating will cost you. Improper assembly or installation may cause a loss of heat.

Doors made entirely of colored glass are still uncommon, but they can be an impressive addition to your interior.
