Glass for every purpose

Our technical assessors will advise on the best specification for your home.


Obscure glass

Obscure, or textured glass, is most commonly used in doors and bathroom windows. It is available in a large range of patterns and textures and is a great solution for privacy, style or just to allow more light into internal rooms.


Toughened glass

Also known as tempered or safety glass, when broken, toughened glass shatters into tiny pieces which reduces the risk of injury as the edges are not as sharp.


Laminated glass

Created by sandwiching a thin layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) between two or more layers of glass. It is normally specified to provide increased performance for security.


Low emissivity glass

Low emissivity glass is used in most modern replacement double glazed windows. It has an invisible microscopic coating which provides improved thermal efficiency.


Georgian wire glass

Sometimes called safety glass, Georgian wire is manufactured with wire mesh embedded into it, to prevent the glass from shattering and breaking.


Tinted glass

Usually featuring a grey colour, tinted glass can reduce UV rays and therefore protect furniture from fading, if it is in direct sunlight. It can also provide more privacy.


Acoustic glass

Double glazed units can be manufactured with specialist noise reduction glass to help people who live near airports, busy roads and modern city living. To provide the best solution, acoustic glass can also be fitted into secondary glazing.


Shaped glass

Using a template, glass can be cut into most shapes and is commonly used to incorporate an extractor fan or cat/dog flaps.
