Commercial Glazing Shop Front
Commercial glazing refers to installing glass in commercial spaces like storefronts or offices. It plays a significant role in enhancing the space’s appeal, design, and functionality. Glazing is commonly found in shop fronts, drive-thrus, and large office windows. Traditionally, it is used to retain heat during colder months, helping businesses save on heating costs.
Apart from heat retention, modern commercial glazing offers additional benefits. It allows more natural light to enter the space, improving the overall ambience and attracting potential customers. Glazing can be applied to various elements such as furniture, mirrors, skylights, and customized glass in the interior. It can be used on the exterior for door closures, curtain glass, security glass, and entrance doors.
However, modern commercial glazing offers several added benefits besides heat retention.
The glazing allows more sunlight to enter the space, lifting the space’s look and appeal. Passers-by will be able to look in the store, and placing some of your best products in their line of sight is an excellent way to improve your footfall.
Commercial glazing has a wide range of applications. On the interior, you can get it done on furniture, mirrors, skylights, and any custom glass you have. Besides your store front, commercial glazing can be done to door closures, curtain glasses, security glasses, and entrance doors on the exterior of your business.

Frequently Asked Questions
Commercial glass is typically 1/4″ thick or thicker, while residential glass is thinner at just 3/32″ in width. Moreover, insulated commercial windows have 1/4″ panes with a 1/2″ spacer, resulting in a total width of 1″, considerably thicker than the 7/16″ found in most insulated residential windows.
Commercial glass is also four to six times stronger than residential glass. Additionally, in the event of significant impact, commercial glass breaks into harmless small fragments, unlike residential glass, which shatters into larger and sharper pieces.
A double-glazed window can last 25-30 years or more if installed in a protected area without exposure to extreme weather conditions. However, if the window is exposed to harsh weather, its lifespan maybe around 20 years.
