In the last fifteen years, glass technology has improved significantly. We can now offer to you a large variety of textured and coloured glasses. We are now able to laminate colour and texture glasses to become a “A grade” safety glass this give us the ability to offer a greater range of textures. We can laminate multiple colours and texture to a single piece of glass, adding design to a “A grade safety glass”.  Now many leadlight glass that were not previously available can be offered as glazing glasses for various application including front door surround and doors, bathroom, stairwells and glazing under 3oomm from float height. These additional application work well on both laminated and toughened glass.

As well as it now being possible to laminate many coloured and textured glasses in a variety of different styles including  artico, artista, water glass and antique. There are also many different inter core layers that are being developed like RP1 a rice paper inter core layer and it is even possible to choose a sewing machine material and coloured film place it in between two layers of glass.
