Then, how do you measure for replacement double glazing glass?
To measure for a new double glazed window you should:
- Take three measurements of the width from the top, middle and bottom.
- Measure from the jambs of each window, not from the existing windows or frames.
- The smallest measurement across the three measurements is the size you need to give the window company.
Also, how do you measure a rough opening for a replacement window? Measure the distance vertically across your frame from top to bottom on the left, middle, and right side of the window from head jamb to the window sill. Circle the smallest measurement of the three figures, this is your rough opening height.
In this regard, how do you measure window glass thickness?
Use the glass measurement gauge on a single pane of glass as follows:
- Place the tool on the corner of a piece of glass.

- View the screen from a 45-degree angle.
- Check the first laser line is on the zero line of the scale and the second laser line will show the glass thickness.
What is the standard thickness of double glazed units?
The space in between can be 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 16mm, 18mm or 20mm. Hence if you are looking at a Double Glazed unit that has a spacer of 12 mm, the overall thickness is 12mm (space) plus 8mm (glass) totalling 20mm thickness and this is expressed as 4 12 4.
