Float Glass

Glass that has been annealed or floated is one sheet of glass that is uniformly thick, commonly termed “ordinary glass”. Float glass is brittle and can shatter when it is struck, resulting in sharp, dangerous fragments, so it cannot be used as a safety glass.

This is typically used for:

  • Double glazing and domestic glazing.
  • Small shelves and table tops.
  • Low risk glazing (see diagram).

CSU offers float glass as stock, or processed, in a variety of types and thicknesses, including:

Low iron, low-emissivity, satin, as well as tinted solar control, anti-sun greys / bronzes / greens / blues, self-cleaning, one-way ‘spy glass’ and various patterns.

3mm, 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 15mm and 19mm.
