Why You Need Glazing Tools
Glazing tools are an essential part of the glazing job. They are also handy for anyone who needs to replace a window. You need glazing tools when it comes to cutting windows out, installing windows and doors, double-glazing windows, and transporting glass from one place to another. Glazing tools also ensure they get into every groove to ensure a professional result.
Glazing tools are used by glaziers to make their job a lot easier, without them it would be a much more time-consuming and trickier job. They are also necessary for glaziers if they want to complete their job to a high standard.
These tools make removing, fitting and replacing any window a much easier job. Although glazing tools are used for professional glazers, they can also be used for everyday life as well as for DIY purposes.
Glazing Tools at GGR Glass
In the glazing industry tools have improved a lot compared to what they once were. For example, the tools that glaziers used back in the day included a hammer, nails and a putty knife.
Whereas, nowadays there is a lot more to a glazier's toolbox that allows them to perform to a higher standard as well as make their jobs a lot easier.
Here at GGR Glass, we offer a variety of high-quality tools as well as glass and other delicate materials. Glazing tools that we offer include suction lifters and glass cutters that may be needed to move objects that may be fragile or difficult to move around. There are many more essential tools for glass glazing that we offer, such as:
A glazing hammer is an essential tool in every glazier’s toolbox. It is mainly used for glass installation - for example, a glass window or glass shower door. These types of hammers are fitted with a rubber head to ensure that it is not too harsh on the glass. Be sure to consider health and safety when using tools such as hammers.
Sealant finishers are an excellent way to smooth out the sealant to allow you to get that neat finish. They are a reasonable price and are a must in a glazier’s toolbox. Sealant finishers come in a wide range of angles suitable for the neat sealing of any crack or joint at different angles - using this is sure to result in a professional finish.
This type of tool is very popular for glaziers - and is in fact one of our most popular hand tools. This is because gasket rollers are used to fit gasket seals. This is done by pushing them into place and ensuring that they are sealed tightly. Gasket rollers come with a free-running plastic wheel which can be used by rolling it along the gasket to push it into place.
A glazing shovel is solid and shockproof and helps to level panes into the correct position. They can be specially designed to remove any excess putty. It has an easy grip tool which helps when pushing wedge gaskets into windows and door frames.
Gasket shears are used to accurately cut window gaskets to fit into angles correctly.
Glass Suction Cups
And finally, a glass suction cup - this is a great tool for glaziers as it is designed to be strong enough to lift, transport and fit glass windows into place. Here at GGR Glass, we offer a variety of suction cups that come in a range of different sizes. From lever-operated suction cups to slap-on cups, we have it all!
