Tech/Engineering / Description of Window
German term or phrase: Scheibenglasfenster
This is describing walls inside a technical school:

"Stahlständergerüst mit Melaminharz-beschichteten Holzplatten und feststehenden 1-Scheibenglasfenstern"

I really don't understand the "1-Scheibenglas" bit at all. Architecture is not one of my strong points, but unfortunately some texts have a nasty way of throwing something at you from an area you're not familiar with.

To make matters worse, "1-Scheibenglas" only gets one search engine hit. I am completely and utterly stuck. But hopefully someone here with better knowledge of architecture or access to a dictionary with the term will know what to call it. TIA for your help.

Of course! Scheibe means pane in relation to windows! Silly me. Thank you very much for that, Nancy.
