How to measure glass thickness of single layer glass, double/triple glazed window? Glass thickness gauge is a high precision glass thickness measurement tool suitable for measuring the installed glass, double/triple glazed window.

I. Why do we measure glass thickness?

In the modern building decoration, the application of glass is becoming popular. The glass is widely used in exterior walls of the building, the partitions in the office building, the decoration in the home, the decoration of the hotel, etc. The glass thickness often determines whether the glass is installed in accordance with the standard. The glass manufacturer and the construction unit need to check the acceptance of the project. Besides, different kinds of glass have different requirements for the glass thickness so as to achieve their performance. Therefore, there are special standards for glass thickness in different industries.

II. How to measure glass thickness?

1. Glass thickness measurement for single layer glass

a. Vernier caliper

The first reaction for most people is to use a vernier caliper. Vernier caliper is a great tool for measuring glass thickness, but their functions are limited. Vernier calipers can only be used to test  single-layer glass and cannot be used to test installed glass. If you need to test the glass or curtain wall glass on the door and window, the vernier caliper will not work.

b. Glass thickness gauge

The glass thickness gauge can solve this problem. The glass thickness gauge is not only suitable for measuring the thickness of a single layer glass, but also for measuring installed glass. It is accurate to measure from either side of the glass, no need to remove the panel and no exposed edges or opening required.

2. Glass thickness measurement for double/triple glazed window 

Now we can use a digital glass thickness gauge for measurements. Linshang LS201 and LS200 are two high precision glass thickness gauge invented by a famous Chinese glass thickness gauge manufacturer- Linshang Technology. This glass thickness gauge uses the principle of laser reflection. As long as the instrument is placed on one side of the glass, the thickness of the glass can be measured. And the glass thickness gauge can be used to measure the thickness of the glass and the air interlayer at the same time.

III. Digital glass thickness measurement tool (glass thickness gauge)

1. Laser glass thickness meter LS200

LS200 laser glass thickness meter adopts the principle of laser reflection and has two scales. When measuring the glass thickness, the users need to calculate the thickness of the glass and the air layer by reading the data on the scales.

2. Digital Glass thickness gauge LS201 

LS201 digital glass thickness gauge supports Chinese and English interface switching, and can switch between automatic measurement and manual measurement mode. In the manual measurement mode, we can pre-set the thickness of the glass and air layers so that the measurement data can be more accurate. The LS201 glass thickness gauge is especially suitable for the glass thickness measurement of installed glass, double/triple glazed window, laminated glass.
