Abstract: This paper throws light on the research of the outcome of breadth of glazing material such as glass on the flat plate solar saver presentation. There are 4 models of the solar saver comprised with varying thickness of glass which are investigated experimentally. The area of the collector fabricated is 0.72×0.15 meters. The thickness parameters considered in the study is low glass iron having the values of 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 5mm. these materials are used as the glazing material in the present setup. The performance regarding the collector was evaluated and contrasted with the 5mm thickness glass. The result depicted that thickness material having 4mm value has the best results in the time duration considered in the study from morning 7:30 am to evening 6 pm. The effectiveness calibrated showed that 4mm glass gave 35.98% in comparison to the 5mm which incorporated 28.2%.
