Patterned and Tinted Float Glass

There is no question that “clear” and “glass” go together. The fact is that there are many different types of “clear” glass providing you with customization that will help to provide a unique look for your project. We can customize a selection of patterned and tinted float glass in order to ensure you achieve the desired look for your project.

Float glass is the most readily available kind of glass on the market today. It is called “float” glass due to the method in which it is produced. Molten glass is floated on a bed of tin in liquid form where it then settles in flat sheets. To create patterned and tinted varieties there are a few extra steps in the process.

Tinted Glass

This is created by adding chemical compounds to float glass while it is being formed. This will change the color of the resulting product, giving it a tint that is consistent throughout the sheet. There are three basic colors, however many others available with a custom order. We strive to offer solutions for any specialty glass color you require for the successful completion of your project.

Patterned Glass

Patterned glass is created in sheets of float glass when the sheets are still in a partially molten form. While in this form the glass is pressed between a set of metal rollers, which leave a pattern behind. Each pattern will have its own unique texture and allow for a custom and unique look to your project. Additionally, the pattern is able to be applied where light can be added to a room while preserving a suitable amount of privacy.

In many cases we can help to create a custom pattern for your specialty needs. If you require a specialty tint or patterned float glass call our professional glass technicians today to get your project started. We provide exceptionally high-quality services, with a high regard to your expectations.
