GLASS TYPES

We Supply and Fit All Glass Types.

Sheet Glass:  is ordinary glass used in most older style homes, it is generally distorted due to the manufacturing process, we can still obtain this glass to help match existing period style homes like villas and colonial homes. ** subject to current standards.

Float Glass: like sheet glass, but has no imperfections. It is distortion free – popular for most homes, but is not safety glass.

Safety Glass: safety glass is normally in toughened or laminated form. Toughened glass will explode into tiny cube portions if broken. It is used widely by the aluminium window and door fabricators and due to its lower weight it is ideal for sliding doors. Laminated glass is  the same as a modern day car windscreen. It will only crack and retains its strength in most situations. It is typically used in local shopping centres. If someone fell against toughened glass they would, in most cases,  net be injured. Laminated glass consists of 2 sheets of glass bonded together with an interlayer .

Patterned: obscure glass is mainly used for privacy instances like a bathroom window or toilet or dividing a lounge door area or front entry area – it comes in float, laminated and toughened form.
