Most standard residential windows are fitted with clear float glass, in thickness ranging from 3-5mm. Doors are generally fitted with 4mm or 5mm clear toughened glass.
As a purely glass tabletop, the glass should be at least 3/8” in order to properly support the objects being placed on it. Other popular thicknesses for glass tabletops are ½” or ¾”, but the thickness can go up to 1”. If the glass is just being used as a protective covering, then ¼” is the most popular thickness.

In the UK, suppliers will provide the cost of most toughened (or tempered) glass suppliers with a quote per square metre, not per square foot. They will also provide prices based on the thickness of the toughened glass. For a 4mm sheet of toughened glass, the average cost is about £20 per m2.
Description. The 6mm Toughened Safety Glass is tempered and toughened to withstand environments that would create too much pressure for Float Glass. This product is often the starting thickness for Toughened Safety Glass used in public areas.
Laminated glass is used in the manufacture of doors and windows of automobiles because it provides good strength to the glass.
One of the most common types of home and business glass outside of traditional windows is glass doors. Safe for interior and exterior use, modern-day glass doors are made of tempered glass, energy-efficient and come in a variety of styles.
Horticultural Glass - standard greenhouse glass supplied in 3mm thick overlapping sheets. Horticultural glass is the lowest grade of glass used for greenhouses and the most economical. Consequently, it can sometimes contain marks and blemishes, but this doesn't affect its performance as greenhouse glazing.
