There are a few different ways to fix glass in a window, depending on the type of window and the extent of the damage.
Some common methods include:
- Using glazing putty: This is a type of putty that is used to seal the edges of the glass in a window. It is applied around the edges of the glass and then smoothed out to create a tight seal.
- Using tape: Clear tape, such as duct tape, can be used to temporarily hold the glass in place until a more permanent solution can be found.
- Using adhesive: A clear adhesive, such as silicone, can be used to bond the glass to the window frame.
- Replacing the glass: If the glass is severely damaged or broken, it may need to be replaced. This is typically done by a professional glazier or window repair specialist.
It is recommended to hire professional for the glass fixing in window as it requires proper tools, skills and experience to handle the situation.

A glass fixing detail drawing is a technical drawing that shows the specific details and specifications of how glass will be installed in a building. It typically includes information such as the type of glass being used, the size of the glass panes, the method of installation, and any specific hardware or materials that will be required.
A typical glass fixing detail drawing will include the following information:
- Dimensions of the glass panes
- Type of glass (i.e. tempered, laminated, insulated)
- Size and spacing of any hardware or fasteners used to secure the glass
- Type and thickness of any sealant or putty used to seal the glass
- Any special requirements for weather resistance or energy efficiency
- Clearances and tolerances for the installation of the glass
- Details of the window or door frame
- Type of wall or structure the glass will be installed on
- Any additional safety consideration or requirement
It’s important to note that the detail drawing is only used as a reference during the construction process and will not provide a complete understanding of the glass fixing. The final installation will be done by the professional glazier or window installer based on the building codes and regulations.
