    • Standard/Annealed: After the formation of glass, internal pressure contributes to weakness. Annealing makes the glass sturdier and durable.

    • Obscure/Patterned: Make a bold statement with patterned glass that goes with your decor giving it an exquisite touch and elegance, or simply to add privacy.

    • Tinted: Tinted glass can be used interchangeably for both aesthetic and performance purposes.

  • Strength: The strength of the glass should strike a fine balance between aesthetics and safety. Certain decorative glasses are thin and delicate, while some are sturdy. If you have kids, you should go for the thick ones.

  • Edge Types/Finishes: The edges of the glass contribute to the overall appearance of the ambience. You can go for the sophisticated ones or bold ones, depending on your preference.
    • Bevelled Edge: The bevelled edge has a slight slope that squares off in the end for a sophisticated look.



    • Flat Edge Polished: The flat edge has a square edge that has been polished for safety and aesthetics', this is one of the most popular edge treatments.



    • Seamed Edge: Used mainly when the glass will be concealed and the edges covered, the edges are safe to handle but unpolished.

When it comes to edge-work, we have a variety of choices available with various thicknesses:

  • Safety Glass:Safety glass is glass with added safety features for your office or business. These features make the glass less likely to break, or less dangerous if it does get broken. Common designs include reinforced (ceramic) or tempered glass, laminated glass, and wire mesh/wired glass.
    • Reinforced: This type of glass is fire-resistant because the composites are lighter but stronger.



    • Tempered: Tempered glass is stronger and more heat resistant than annealed glass. It reduces the impact of the break, and the pieces are small and oval instead of large and sharp.



    • Laminated: Glass is covered with a film which keeps the pieces intact in case it breaks.

    • Wire Mesh/Wired: This glass has a mesh inside that holds the pieces together in case it breaks. This glass is also fire-resistant.
