Glass creates the illusion of more space, opening up your house or business area. As glass creates a transparent border, it will not block the light which creates an open, fresh and bright atmosphere. Glass is ideal for modern interiors, but it can also add a touch of sophistication to classic interiors for an attractive juxtaposition in the interior. As glass compliments other materials, it is very versatile and is easy to clean, making it a perfect fit for many spaces. Therefore, it is the perfect material for aesthetics and safety, and you’re able to view more of our glass work in our gallery and case studies.

Colour Customisation

We understand how important customisation is to make sure products fit perfectly into your space and reflect your taste. We are able to offer various colour options for our glass, such as the following:

  • Clear (this is our standard colour)
  • Low iron (ultra clear)
  • Grey tinted
  • Bronze tinted
  • Green
  • Blue

Special Interlayers

We are able to implement a structural interlayer which can improve the structural performance of the glass, such as Sentry Glass. Having special interlayers improves strength and stiffness, which boosts safety to prevent breakage, glass fragments or injury. With increased durability comes increased security, as the special interlayers can withstand much more than standard glass and last longer. This is perfect for someone who wants the modern, clean and sophisticated look of glass with the ease of knowing it is much more durable and secure.

Structural Glass Fixings

Personalised Printing

Personalisation has become a must in the modern day, which is why we offer various layers of customisation with our glass products. With the option of screen printing, we are able to offer various levels of opaqueness as well as the customisation of patterns and logos. This boosts brand consistency within businesses to keep a strong brand identity. We are also able to provide frosted interlayers which can be coloured or white laminated interlayers. With the utilisation of sandblasting on glass, it opens options of customisation which acts like an airbrush.
