Glass Settings For Offices

Glass is an excellent way of creating partitions, the illusion of space and sophistication to your commercial settings. Here are some different types of glass that allow light to pass through while maintaining sense of privacy. When engaging a fitout specialist, ensure they are well versed with these varieties to give you the best outcome.

  1. FROSTED GLASS: Frosted glass is a transparent glass sheet that has been turned opaque by the process of sandblasting or acid etching. The frosting effect can also be achieved by using a film of vinyl.
  2. REEDED OR FLUTED GLASS:  It is produced by pressing the semi-molten glass through metal rollers. It is generally used for cabinet doors, glass doors, and windows, entrances, and partitions.
  3. STAINED GLASS: This has been used for thousands of years for churches and other religious buildings. The coloured glasses need to be cut into a certain pattern to form a design. It has a unique handcrafted look, making it a form of art.
  4. COLOURED GLASS: In coloured glass, metal oxides are added while the glass is in a molten state, so the glass has a single panel of a particular colour, whereas stained glass has coloured glass put together to form a design or pattern.
  5. CORRUGATED GLASS: Flat papers are weak and slack, but if we fold these papers a few times, the behaviour of the paper changes. It becomes strong. When a flat glass is bent into waves, the glass becomes more durable and resilient. It’s generally used for industrial and commercial purposes.
  6. TEXTURED GLASS: It’s a rolled pattern glass, one side of which has a decorative pattern impressed upon it. One can choose from a huge number of patterns according to their privacy.
  7. BRICK GLASS: Also known as “block glass.” Glass blocks may vary in size, colour, form, and texture. It is generally used for decorative window or wall fabrication. But recently, it has also been used for skylights and sidelights.
  8. ETCHED GLASS: It’s also known as “French embossing.” Glass etching is an art technique. Etching is done by applying an acidic, caustic, or abrasive substances to the surface of the glass with the goal of creating a design. 
  9. REFLECTIVE GLASS: It’s a glass with a thin coating of metal oxides on one side that gives it a mirror appearance and prevents visibility from the outside.
