Coloured glass

Coloured glass

Coloured glass is usually produced in order to make stained glass mosaics, which is why the measurements of coloured glass panels are limited. The thickness of coloured glass is 3-4 mm, but it can vary, especially in the case of structured glass. Coloured glass is available in hundreds of tones and different structures. The structure of water glass, like the name hints, is similar to the rippling of water surface. Baroque glass has strong flowing colours and a gorgeous pattern. Opal glass is semitransparent coloured glass with milk glass components. The list is endless. Each and every glass is charming. When combining glasses with different structures the stained glass mosaic becomes playful and beautiful. Coloured glass panels are often used in wooden doors with smaller openings.
Using coloured glass in exterior doors gives rooms a cozier lighting.

Tinted Glass

Tinted glass has a smooth surface. It is available in bronze, blue, green and gray tones. The translucency of tinted glass decreases with the growing of the thickness of the glass. Tinted glass differs from coloured glass, for its thickness varies: 4, 6, 8, 10 mm and unlike coloured glass, tinted glass can be toughened.

Coated glass

In the case of coated glass one side of the glass is covered with a paint layer, which is applied on the glass in the process of toughening. Coated glass does not let light through. The tones can be chosen from RAL-catalogue of colours, which can be found in any construction store. The printed or web versions do not always match the real result 100%. Additionally the panel glass manufactured in factories has a slight greenish tone to it, which can alter the selected shade a bit. To avoid that one can use optiwhite glass, which is completely colourless and does not change the result. The difference between optiwhite glass and regular clear panel glass can be seen in our office. Glass coating is a smart choice for sliding doors to make sure that the content of the cupboard does not show. Coated glass can be combined with patterned matting. In that case the pattern is etched into the glass through the paint. The outcome is an effective 2-tone pattern.
