The art of textured, or patterned glass as it is also called, dates back to the early 1800s when it was first invented to create patterns in handles for furniture. Over the following decades, the techniques for creating patterns in glass were further developed in the United States and parts of Europe until the 1900s when it became more readily available due to mass production.
Patterned glass derives its name from the texture that is imprinted on one side of the glass surface using a rolled glass process. The process begins with the molten glass mixture being floated between two counter rotating rollers, which are water cooled. One of these rollers has the pattern on the surface whilst the other is smooth, giving the glass an imprinted pattern on one side and leaving it smooth on the other. The thickness of the glass is determined by the distance between the two rollers. Once cooled, the glass is then cut into the required sheet sizes.
Today, patterned glass can be used in a whole variety of situations in both the commercial and residential sectors. The glass is lightly printed to diffuse and slightly distort the image, ensuring privacy without loss of brightness. Uses can include door panels, bathroom and laundry windows, shower and bath screens, interior partitions, shelving, and decorative furniture.
Most of the textures can be toughened to comply with the requirements of Australian Standards AS 1288-2022, giving you peace of mind whilst providing a decorative feature.
