Any Glass experts?

I'm trying to decipher the following:

The Okie Corral

From a commercial remodel (exterior)

So I get there's two 1/4 inch panels, with 1/2 inch spacer, for an inch thick unit.

One of the panels is Sungate 500 low-e (ann... annealed?)

What's going on with the other panel... heat strengthend, not tempered? I thought building exteriors were supposed to be tempered... BZSC R2? They're tinted, but I'm still waiting on pics to see how much...


any help is greatly appreciated

I can't help much but annealed glass is the stuff that breaks into giant shards. Heat treating turns annealed glass into tempered glass - if memory serves.

Yeah, if I remember right, there's 3 levels...

Annealed ... giant shards
Heat Treated - still has the shards, but is twice as strong as annealed
Tempered - breaks into tiny 'pebbles' - twice as strong as HT glass

CLEARLY, I have no idea.

But will bump your thread accordingly.

This may be more of a pane than I thought...

I believe it only needs to be tempered if it is on or adjacent to a door. At least that is the case in Oklahoma.

Tempered within 16"from bottom of glass to floor & within 4' of door unless projects specs say otherwise.
