Etched and enamelled surfaces should face the inside of the building
when glazed to protect the decorated surface from
the elements. Glass subject to high levels of condensation
e.g. in a bathroom, should have the decorative surface incorporated
into the centre of the glass laminate to further protect the decorated
surface. Please specify "internal laminate" when ordering,
if this is required.
Once the glass is fitted, we recommend that any putty or glazing
contamination is removed immediately and not permitted to dry
on the glass, as this may leave a residue.
Safety glass should be fitted in all doors and glazed areas that
are lower than 800mm from floor level. Glass panes less than 250mm
wide may be fitted with 5mm or 7mm laminated
We do not recommend our annealed glass be toughened which is why we offer all designs in a laminated safety glass option of either 5mm or 7mm.
When measuring a tight size you must deduct 3mm, so as to ensure
that the glass, once cut, will fit correctly. Remember to indicate
width and height when ordering one of our non-symmetrical glass
patterns so that the pattern is correctly cut. We always endeavour
to centre the pattern in the glass pane and cut the glass so that
the design flows through the space.
It is therefore useful to provide a layout where panes are positioned
close to one another. If your glass is an unusual shape e.g. curved,
again it is helpful to provide a template.
Measure the actual size of the frame opening. Deduct 4mm from
the width and 7mm from the height to arrive at the size of the
door to be ordered.
To ensure that your glass continues to look its best for years
to come, clean any finger-marks or grease regularly from the etch
surface using standard glass cleaner.
