Decorative glass has patterns impressed into it, giving the surface a textured appearance; however, which means that it is only marginally less opaque than clear glass. Decorative glass is very effective and eye catching when used indoors on windows, and on furniture, such as table tops, counter tops or screens.
Frosted glass is smooth to the touch and looks similar to satin. with frosted glass one side of the pane is acid etched, reducing the amount of light that can flow through the glass. Frosted glass is most commonly used on bathroom windows, shower screens and office partitions, where an increased level of privacy is required.
Tinted glass has small quantities of metal oxides added to it during the manufacturing process, which allows colour absorption. The amount of light that tinted windows let through will depend on the colour and how thick the pane of glass is. Tinted glass is used most commonly in items such as bottles, glasses and other household items.
This type of glass is often installed in bathroom and lavatory windows, as it almost completely obscures visibility, but still allows light to shine through.
Float clear glass
Float glass is the sheet glass from which most modern windows are made. It is uniform in thickness and has very flat surfaces. It comes in a variety of thicknesses and is invariably completely opaque.
Laminated glass consists of two layers of glass with a laminated internal layer between them. This glass is very safe, and strong and the interlayer prevents the glass breaking into small pieces when it is smashed or broken. Also known as safety glass it is used in areas or situations were there is an increased risk of breakage – for example where children frequent such as schools or internal glass doors in family homes.
This is glass that is heat treated in order to increase its strength. This process means that it is extremely difficult to break. This type of glass crumbles if it’s smashed, making it an ideal safety option as these small chunks are less dangerous and less likely to cause harm than shards of broken glass.
This is a more recent addition to the glazing options. It is a specially glazed glass that is prevents heat loss through windows and other glass surfaces, making it more energy efficient.
This is probably the oldest method of glazing and is still very popular today. Although leadlight glazing can be plain it is usually very colourful and decorative, often being found above and around front doors in an around areas like the Adelaide Hills. Of course most of us would have seen spectacular leadlights in church windows.
