  Software

In 2015, AGC Glass Europe created a new tool for measuring the thickness of installed glazing with a smartphone, using a special App.

AGC’s "Glass Measurement App" offers a new added benefit: coating detection
This same App now features a new function called ‘Coating detection’. This detects the presence of a coating on the panes of a glazed unit, whether it is double or triple-glazed.  This function uses the backlight of a smartphone to project an image onto the glass. If one of the reflections of this image on the glazing is a different colour, this shows that the glazing has one or more coatings.
Until now, in order to measure the thickness of a pane of glass whose edges were concealed within a frame, one had to either gauge it with a plastic measuring card or use a professional measuring device.  With the ‘Calculate glass thickness’ function, you can simply scan the inner or outer pane (in double or triple glazing) by positioning a smartphone against the window at an angle of 45°. The App allows you to measure glass thicknesses from 4 mm up to 15 mm.

The “AGC Glass Measurement App” is available for Android, iOS and Windows devices and can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store, Google Play or Windows Store.
It is also available in four languages: English, French, German and Dutch.
