GLASS TYPES

There is a wide collection of opaque glass. Opaque glass means glass that you cannot transparently see through, and as a result admits good light.

This is relevant to bathrooms and where neighbours overlook your windows.

FLEMISH GLASS

Flemish glass in windows is a particularly well-suited texture glass for privacy, yet is not really opaque as many others are (satinlight; arctic; kosiosco etc).

Flemish is probably the clearest of the texture glass styles, and accordingly fine for living areas.

GLASS GALLERY

To view assorted glass types, visit GloRite Glass gallery, based in St. Peters, although this is more a trade outlet.

Other glass styles include satinlight, Kosciosco, arctic, gluchip.

My recommendation is usually flemish glass, as seen above, while common in doors and modern styles is ‘white translucent’, which is a milky white laminate safety glass.

For sound and heat reduction, suggest Comfort Plus from Viridian, which comes in varying shades and thicknesses.
