Types of glass
At Glass & Stainless we have a reputation for delivering excellent quality and our bespoke glass service is no different. Below are some of the types of glass we can supply:
Bespoke glass is glass that is made to order or glass made to measure. Custom glass can be made by any number of processes to create the desired effect but the key thing to think about before ordering is always have in mind the finished product and the intended use of the glass. This will then help define the type of glass needed before you place the order.
The goal is to always create a piece of glass that fits the dimensional and aesthetic specifications, but is also fit for purpose. Therefore, we are here to help should you have any questions or concerns with regards to the suitability prior to ordering your bespoke glass. There are many different reasons why our customers contact us, and each has its own set of fingerprints on a project, different budgets and purposes. Creating a bespoke glass panel that fits your project alone is an important task and one that we do not take lightly. All of our team has developed the commitment and drive to deliver high standards on a consistent basis, no matter the circumstances or project at hand.
All our glass is made to order and as such we have an extensive understanding of the best and most appropriate glass types that work for different situations. Our bespoke glass calculator can help advise what is going be most appropriate for building regulations and general safety within the environment the glass will be located.
When it comes to glass, safety is paramount. That’s why we recommend and supply various forms of safety glass, including toughened glass and laminated glass. Each has their own distinctive properties and we are more than willing to advise you on which is most suitable for your project.
We are constantly monitoring our suppliers to ensure that they meet UK safety standards and will always seek to exceed requirements. As part of our commitment to delivering exceptional product quality, we will only work with accredited suppliers with a proven track record of excellence.
Glass is a strong material so don’t be afraid of using it in your staircases, flooring and balconies. It is the ideal structural material for allowing light to easily pass through two spaces, bringing light to darker areas of the property. It is also brilliant for revealing interesting features that might otherwise go unseen, such as artfully arranged wine cellars or historic timbers. We highly recommend using glass outside to maximise the views of your garden or the landscape beyond.
Remember, using glass doesn’t have to mean compromising on privacy. With bespoke glass you can control the opacity by adding a frosted or satin surface. Thanks to advancements in technology, you can even choose electric privacy glass.
With just the flick of a switch, the glass transforms from total transparency to a more opaque finish, giving you the privacy you require. This form of glass also works brilliantly as a smooth surface upon which to project a screen, making it a brilliant addition to any office or living room.
To make a bold design statement, simply add colour. As light passes through, a gorgeous coloured shadow is thrown onto the space behind creating a beautiful effect. Why not use coloured glass in your front door to add interest to your hallway? Alternatively, you could choose to add an etched design to the glass. It could be delicate florals, striking geometric shapes or just a simple line border. Whatever look and feel you want to create, there is always a way to make glass work for you.
By choosing bespoke glass, you have the freedom to choose panels in any shape or size that you want. There’s no need to stick to the standard square or rectangle. If you’re uncertain about how to accurately measure the amount of glass you require, including those bits which are hidden by a frame, we can guide you through the process.
