Glass in the interstitial space

Normal float glass is used for many different purposes, there are many names for it (float glass can be tempered = toughened glass/impervious glass/secure glass, sheet glass, cut glass, construction glass, interior glass, table top glass, partition glass). Flat glass is available in a variety of colours, for example (clear, grey, special clear (optiwhite), blue, etc.) or can also be painted in the desired colour (backpainted glass, backpainted white glass, etc.)
Tempered glass (toughened safety glass, impact resistant glass *)
If you want more security than normal flat glass, you can select the tempering of the glass from the menu above. After tempering, the glass is about 3-5 times more durable than untempered glass (excluding the edge of the glass), and when broken, tempered glass shatters into small “vacuum cleanable” pieces, so there is little risk of cutting if the glass breaks. Tempered glass is also more resistant to temperature differences in different parts of the glass (200 kelvin difference inside the glass, maximum operating temperature 300C – untempered 40 kelvin). The edges of the tempered glass are always rough ground (even if ‘Cut with sharp edges only’ is selected). Tempered glass always comes with a little tempering glue in the corner of the glass. *Sometimes tempered glass is called impact-resistant glass. The surface of tempered glass is generally more resistant to impact than untempered glass, but it should be noted that if an impact is made to the side or corner of the tempered glass, the tempered glass will also shatter as easily as normal untempered glass.
Border grinding
If the edges of the glass are still visible after installation, we recommend that you also apply a polish to the glass from the edges menu. In this case, the sharp edges of the glass are ground clean and polished. ready for presentation. Edge grinding also slightly increases the bending resistance of the glass. If the edges of the glass are hidden inside the frame, edge grinding is not necessary. To add to the appearance, you can also choose to have the glass surface faceted at the edge or 45-degree faceted. When facet grinding glasses, if all corners of the glass are rounded with less than 11mm of angular curvature, the facet grinding is done in a straight line and does not follow the angular curvature. Otherwise, the facet is ground on a CNC machine to follow the edge line of the glass, including the rounding.
Examples of applications
Window glass
usually 4mm or 6mm thick, the thickness is chosen according to the size and location of the glass. Sometimes, if the location (e.g. busy passageways and close to doors) requires it, tempered or laminated glass is also used.
Table top safety glasses (# tempered glass top for table top)
usually 6mm thick, tempered or non-tempered glass is used. For edge sanding, we strongly recommend you to choose a polished edge sanding. If the surface of the table is light or white, we recommend using special clear glass, which significantly reduces the greenish tint of normal glass. However, the extra clear glass has little effect on the green edge of the glass. For table top safety glasses, we recommend at least a small R2 – R3mm corner rotation to remove sharpness from the corners of the glass (see examples below). If you want to hide the surface of the table, the glass can be painted in the desired colour. Cf. lower Backpainted glass. Glasses painted white, or light coloured, should always be made of Special Clear glass (# optiwhite). # glass top for table # optiwhite # tempered glass # white glass
Kitchen partition glass (# partition glass)
Tempered or non-tempered glass of 6mm thickness is usually used. For edge sanding, we strongly recommend you to choose a polished edge sanding. If the surface of the wall to be protected is light or white, we recommend using special clear glass, which significantly reduces the greenish tint of normal glass. However, the extra-bright glass has little effect on the green edge of the glass. If you want to hide the background wall surface, the glass can be painted in the desired colour. Cf. lower Backpainted glass. Glasses painted white, or light coloured, should always be made of Special Clear glass (# optiwhite). # interstitial glass # optiwhite # tempered glass # white glass
All-glass portable table covers
Always tempered glass, 6,8,10mm thick or if you want a more rugged look, up to 19mm glass has been used.
Glazing of terrace walls
Always use tempered glasses, due to the fact that

in general, terrace structures have a longer life than other fixed structures in a house,
the glasses are large,
terraces are wool passageways,
there is a greater risk of colliding with glasses on terraces,
usually the glazing also goes quite close to the land border

Terrace wall glass
are usually 4 or 6mm thick tempered glass, depending on the size of the glass, the way it is fixed and the environmental stresses on the glass.
Terrace roof glass
are usually 8 or 10mm, sometimes 12mm thick tempered glass. # tempered glass
Types of glass
High clarity glass (e.g. optiwhite, clearvision, diamond). This type of glass is often referred to by a trade name, such as Optiwhite glass. Special clear glass is brighter than normal clear glass because special clear glass has a lower iron content than normal glass. In this case, also in the case of a. the colour rendering of the glass is much cleaner, for example, if normal glass is painted white against a background, the result when viewed through the glass is a strong greenish white, with special clear glass this greenish effect is much more muted. This so-called. optiwhite glass can be used for a huge variety of applications, from interior glass to solar collector glass. # low-iron # optiwhite # special clear glass # low-iron glass # glass top for table

Tinted glass (grey, dark grey, bronze, green and blue) can be used for aesthetic reasons or to reduce the transmission of solar heat energy (they absorb the heat energy of the sun) – this way the space does not heat up as much as with clear glass.

The glasses you are looking for can be used indoors for interior decoration or outdoors for construction. The surface of the glass you are looking for is, as the name suggests, etched to a matt surface, so that the glass provides privacy or gives the interior an aesthetic appearance. If the surface of the etched glass is facet ground, the grinding will always be on the etched side and the etched glass will become clear across the width of the grinding. If the etched glass gets very wet, the glass may become temporarily transparent.

All glass sold on this page can be tempered safety glass (toughened glass).
Weight of glass
You can also calculate the weight of the glassby entering the glass data in the fields. The glass weight calculator does not take into account the reduction in mass due to the shape of the glass, but always calculates the weight of the glass in the rectangular area. The glass weight counter is indicative. The weight of the glass can vary between different production batches due to the thickness tolerance of the glass.

Examples of the size of corner swivels
R, or radius, is the size of the circle of which the angular rotation is a part. Examples of what corner spinning can be compared to:

The diameter of a long-playing LP is about 300mm, i.e. radius R=150mm
The diameter of the CD is 120mm, i.e. radius R=60mm
The diameter of a 2 euro coin is about 25mm, i.e. radius R=12.5mm
The diameter of a 10 ct coin is about 20mm, i.e. radius R=10mm
3mm rounding (R3) the rounding is just visible to the eye from the corner of the round, but the shape of the glass is not yet substantially changed
The 1mm rounding (R1) doesn’t look much like a rounded corner, but feeling it with your fingertip you can feel that the sharpness has just about disappeared.

Backpainted glass
On request, we canpaint the back of the glass in the colour of your choice. Backpainted glass is suitable for example as glass table tops, interior wall glass, kitchen partition glass (# glass plate for kitchen), etc. You can create stunning decorative elements from the back-painted glasses. For the ground glass of a background painting, we always recommend to choose “Extra Clear Glass”, which has only a little bit of the natural green tint of the glass. This is when the colour rendering properties of the glass are at their best. However, extra clear glass is not completely colourless and it also “shades” the paint, so the colour seen through the glass is never the same as the same paint colour without it.

The black colour does not change much whether it is painted on normal or special clear glass.

Back-painted glass is for indoor use only and the painted side must always be hidden against another surface (table, wall) and protected from scratching.

When designing a backpainted glass with our calculator, when looking at the scale of the glass, the backpainting will always be behind the glass, i.e. in the background. Take this into account also if you order holes in the glass.

The picture below compares the white painting on special clear and “normal” clear glass:

Below is an example of a round special clear glass, painted in Violet 4003:

Drilling a hole in glass
You can also order the glasses with holes for the position you want. There are certain regularities in where holes can be drilled in the glass. For example, each glass thickness has its own minimum distances, the distance between the edge of a hole and, for example, the edge of the glass, the corner of the glass or another hole. If the glass is tempered as safety glass (toughened glass) these distances are greater than for untempered glass and the distances increase with the thickness of the glass. There is also a minimum hole diameter depending on the glass thickness.

Our calculator always automatically checks that these minimum distances are met and that the hole is not too small for the glass thickness.
The holes are always rough-edged, i.e. the holes are supposed to go “hidden”.
6-40mm holes are usually drilled with diamond drills and holes over 40mm are either drilled or machined with CNC machines.
There is no upper limit to the size of the hole, we can machine almost any size hole in the glass
The holes can also be flush with the edges, making the so-called. half e.g. for cable penetrations, etc. or fireplace glass against a round fireplace

The holes cannot be too close together, but the holes can partially overlap (min 1/3 part) – this will give you longer gaps. (Hole spacers may be machined straight if production possibilities so require)

If possible, always try to use the same hole size (cheaper)
