Glazing New York

Glazing NYC

A glass panel in the window is called the glazing. This glass piece is attached to the frame using EPDM gaskets. Re-glazing is the restoring of the glass. Traditionally, this class of work was accomplished by someone referred to as a glazier, who has made this a specialty. In some cases the glazing can simply be replaced. In some circumstances, the glass and frame requires an updated installation.

Back in the day, windows had one glass pane with little protection from the outside world. Innovations in the industry have allowed for glazing that is more efficient on energy. More than one pane, special coatings and insulation are updates in recent years for New York glazing.

EPDM

Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) is a rubber used as a sealant to protect against harsh weather elements such as rain and high winds. Some companies use the rubber for insulation in vehicles. The synthetic substance can endure a temperature range of -50°C to 150°C. This is well beyond what humans can comfortably tolerate.
