Patterned and Textured Glass
While even plain glass can be beautiful, there is something truly stunning about textured and patterned glass. Using extremely high temperatures, the pattern or texture is imprinted on the glass while it is still in a malleable state. There are many different types of patterns and textures we offer, and we can create custom designs as well.
Most patterned and textured glass is frosted, which means that it is nearly opaque, only allowing light and shadows to be visible through the glass. This can be a great way to add privacy in a bathroom, create ambiance in a restaurant, or just beautify your home. Below are some of the patterns and textures we offer.
- Master Pointe
- Reeded Frosted
- Euro Rain
- Acid Etched
- Master Carre
- Delta Frosted
- Quatrix Frost
- Laminated Rice Paper
- Mayflower Economy Glass
- Rain (Domestic)
- Aquatex (Smoothrough)

Annealed glass is excellent for applications where a special shape is needed. While most forms of glass can only be cut and shaped when hot, annealed glass can be customized even after it has cooled. It undergoes a special cooling process that gives it increased strength, though there are other forms of glass that are stronger. Where it holds most of its strength is in the edges of the glass, making it ideal for tabletops and other applications where the edges of the glass are exposed.
Often referred to as color-coated glass, backpainted glass is glass where one side has been painted using a durable, opaque paint. In most cases, only one color is used as multi-colored backpainted glass requires a very complex process to produce it. As the paint is only applied to one side, it creates an illusion of depth, with the perception of this depth varying depending on the thickness of the glass.
Insulated glass, also called double-pane glass, is glass that has two panes with an airtight space between them and a sealant on the edges, allowing the two panes to become a single unit. In the space between the panes, a safe gas is filled, giving the glass its insular properties. This helps to control the temperature of the building and keep down heating and cooling costs.
More durable than other forms of glass, it is often referred to as safety glass. It is very difficult to break, and when it is broken, it does not produce dangerous shards. Instead, it holds itself together in a spider web pattern. It is created by bonding two pieces of annealed or tempered glass together with a synthetic material. It is often used in commercial applications and in homes where there is a concern about glass safety.
Every building needs several mirrors, from those over the bathroom sink to decorative entryway mirrors to mirrored walls in dance studios and fitness centers. We produce high clarity mirrors for residential and commercial use in many different styles, making it easy to match them to your décor.
Tempered glass goes through a special cooling process to increase its strength. It is often used in applications where safety is a major concern, making it the favored type of glass in commercial settings. When broken, it breaks into small granules that pose little danger, reducing the chance of injuries occurring.
Since we serve clients in sunny Southern California, tinted glass is a major product for us. It can help regulate the temperature inside of buildings, reduce the risk of skin cancer, and prevent the sun from fading furniture, rugs, and art. We offer many different colors and levels of tint so you can get a customized look.
One size does not fit all, and that means that we will need to custom fabricate the glass for many of the jobs we do. Luckily, we have the capacity to do so. We offer a wide range of glass fabrication techniques to ensure that you get the look you want.
- Cutting: Cutting a glass sheet into the desired shape.
- Grooving: Carving patterns into the surface of a glass sheet.
- Drilling and Countersinking: Creating precisely shaped holes in a glass sheet.
- Bending: Creating a curve or fold in a glass sheet.
- Grinding: Smoothing the edges of a glass sheet.
