When used as an architectural design feature, textured glass opens up a world of possibilities. Decorative as well as functional and structural, it’s a one-of-a-kind material. All of our textured glass is heat-treated to a high degree of safety, and it may be used in a variety of ways.
How is Textured Glass made?
Sheet glass is laid over hand-made moulds in our kilns to create textured or kiln-cast glass, both of which are terms for the same thing. Glass melts into the mold when the kilns are fired at extreme temperatures. Cooled, the glass panel has a rough surface on one side due to the pattern etched into it during the manufacturing process (the textured face).
All of our textured glass products may be safely toughened, notched, drilled, or otherwise shaped.
These textures will help you create a fun, carefree atmosphere. There are various ways to use texture to influence mood, from relaxing to elegant to exciting. If you’d want your own design or brand etched into the glass, that’s no problem.
Our Vic manufacturing plant
With comprehensive in-house manufacturing capabilities for diverse methods at our Vic facility, we’re able to be responsive and adaptable throughout the whole process, from conception to completion. Our ideas and samples are on display at our showroom, where customers are encouraged to stop by and talk about their upcoming projects with us.
As a result, we are equipped to handle large-scale manufacturing runs, such as the renovation of city center offices. In any case, we are just as comfortable working on a one-off art project for a private dwelling or a medical facility.

Why use textured glass?
Privacy and Obscurity
Textured Glass is a great option if you’re looking for seclusion while letting in a lot of light.
It becomes a flexible architectural material for open-plan living or working situations since people and things behind the glass blur into indistinct outlines and mingled colors. En-suite bathrooms and dressing rooms, for example, may benefit from textured glass to provide privacy while allowing light to enter. Textured glass is an ingenious way to conceal unpleasant views from the outside while allowing enough light to pass through.
Glass with a pronounced texture is stunning because of the way it seems like it has been carved out of glaciers. The texture seems to glow from inside because of the passage of light through it. While the texture or pattern on the glass hides it from sight from the outside, it allows enough natural light to get through. Diffusing and softening the lighting is an additional benefit of using texture in a place. It can provide seclusion while yet maintaining an expansive, open atmosphere.
The wide variety of applications
Glass splashbacks, patio doors, and tables all benefit from the obscurity that textured glass provides, while their ornamental nature makes them perfect for bathroom windows, shower screens, and privacy walls. Textured glass may now be seen in various places, including private residences, restaurants, pubs, and hotels, thanks to its wide range of applications and aesthetic appeal.
It is possible to personalize your house with patterned glass by choosing from various patterns and textures. You also have the option of selecting from a variety of privacy levels according to your requirements, allowing you to find the perfect balance between obscurity and light transmission. Glass may be bespoke-cut to suit your door, window, or other glass feature by a professional glazing firm, making it a personalized item for your house.
When it comes to glass, we tend to conceive it as just functional rather than as an important aspect of interior design. With the textured glass, you can give a conventional feature a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind touch. To adorn your house to the last glass piece, there are so many alternatives for patterning glass that it is impossible to go wrong no matter what patterning style you choose.
Textured glass has the following additional advantages
There are almost no boundaries for architects and interior designers as to where their creations may take them. You have the option of customizing your glass to fit your decor. Retro design and industrial-chic look fantastic in restaurants and bars, while flowing textures look wonderful in modern living spaces. Clean, precise geometrics go well with urban office interiors.
- Patterned glass is available in a wide range of styles and motifs. It can also be used in unique designs in conjunction with frosted glass.
- Using textured glass, you can have privacy without sacrificing light. Light transmission is somewhat reduced as compared to float glass.
- Diffusing and spreading light creates the illusion of larger space in tiny spaces.
- By dispersing sunlight, textured glass provides a calming atmosphere. It goes with just about every kind of decor.
- The degree of concealment provided by various designs varies (transparency). If you need extra privacy, you may choose a design with an opaque finish.
- It may be used in places where privacy and fire resistance are needed in conjunction with wired glass.
