We supply and fit etched glass for your windows and doors
Etched Glass is one of the oldest forms of decorative glass on the market but it can also be used to create modern and contemporary art glass. One of the great things about this glass is the amount of light the glass allows to enter the room.
Other forms of decorative glass may contain coloured sections or lead strips that block some light passing through. Etched glass is pure glass without any of these extra materials obstructing the light coming through.
Etched glass is a very popular choice of decorative glass and has been a common occurrence on oak front doors since the mid-1800s
We offer custom etched glass for fanlights, toplights, door panels & side panels. Feature your house name or number and choose from one of our standard borders and fonts below. The panels can be made in any shape or size, single or double glazed.
Etched glass door designs offer an eye-catching design for period entrance doors and the etched glass has been cut into the surface of the glass using acid. The decorative design can often appear frosted or be rough to the touch, although there can be a smooth finish option as well.
The technique meant that glass was no longer transparent but scattered the light to offer an illumination that could not be offered from other glass designs. An elegant addition to any door, etched glass transforms the pane, taking it from plain and simple to interesting and inviting.
Today, laser-etched glass is popular on period home entrance doors with the ability to give precise definition and offer elegant curves, with some creativity and artistic expression providing a stunning final piece. The deep carvings provide the glass with dimension and offer more than just a scratched glass pane, but a striking design that makes your door unlike any other.
