Glazing Options

Obscure Glazing

Any kind of glass that is not completely transparent falls under the umbrella of obscure glass, which is a fairly broad word. Glass is sometimes referred to as privacy glass because it “obscures” the vision through it, distorting or hiding what is on the other side.

There are several techniques to create this concealing effect, but most often, a texture or pattern is used. It can provide total privacy by totally blocking the view or only by displaying silhouettes. It may also be more of a matter of personal preference, offering just a very slight distortion.

Glass that is opaque may be both very useful and quite attractive. It also has versatility.

One of the alluring features of frosted glass varieties is the ability to integrate patterns, logos, and decorations, providing you total creative freedom. These could include common flowery frosted glass designs or distinctive business branding.

Doors, glass walls, balustrades and bathroom windows are typical places to use frosted glass.

Astragal Bars

Astragal bars are installed either internally and externally. They divide glass panes, providing the appearance of classic historical details. To put it another way, astragal bars are added to a single piece of glazing to create the illusion of numerous panes of glass, enhancing the window’s traditional design.

Leaded Lights

Over many years, leaded glass has established a solid reputation as a reliable glass feature. Small pieces of glass supported by lead cames once made up leaded windows. By putting the lead to the glass’s surface, this effect is produced with the use of contemporary technology and increased energy efficiency. This decorative aesthetic is still in demand and just as current, complimenting both traditional and modern houses.

Georgian Bars

Georgian bars are window bars that have a Georgian design added to them. They may be used to create a grid pattern on the inside or outside of a window glass in both the horizontal and vertical directions, which is typical of Georgian era windows. Georgian bars are often made of the same material as the window frame and can be either uPVC, wood, or aluminium.

Origin Aluminium Windows

Toplights are a horizontal glazed panel that are typically fitted to external doors. Perfect to help extend your door height to fill a tall entranceway, they help to let more natural light into your home or office.

Beveled Top Light Designs

Sophisticated elegant bevelled designs catch light from their multifaceted surfaces. They shimmer, sparkle and create small rainbows as the sunlight refracts through their surface. Subtle and stylish bevels will add that finishing touch to your new conservatory, orangery, windows and doors.
