Title: Windows Self Weight

Table C3-2 in the ASCE 7-05 commentary gives glass unit weight at 160 pcf. Thickness can vary quite a bit. A .75 inch thick pane would be 10 psf. 10 to 15 psf is probably in the ballpark for curtain walls. Whoever is designing the glazing should be able to give you the info you are looking for.
