When looking to replace your timber sash windows or casement windows, it is important to consider what type of glass best suits your requirements. Different types of glass can offer different benefits to your home.
Frosted glass is made by sandblasting or acid etching the surface of clear sheet glass to give the glass its appearance. If required, frosted glass or privacy glass can add a decorative element to the glass in your timber windows and there are several different designs and patterns that you can choose from.
Frosted glass is often a popular choice in bathrooms, due to its ability to distort or blur items. This helps increase privacy while not blocking out the light coming into the room. You can get different degrees of privacy levels depending on the style of frosted glass you choose. The lowest level will only slightly blur the object or person the other side of the glass, whereas the highest level of privacy will make the object or person unrecognisable.
Did you know that some types of frosted glass windows can also improve the security of your windows? Frosted glass is made from very durable material. This means that it is often harder to break than standard clear glass. The material can also resist harsh weather.
Frosted glass reduces the sun’s glare, filtering light away during the day and keeping the cold out during the winter season. This helps it keep the indoor temperature consistent throughout the winter and summer months, helping conserve energy. This helps improve the energy efficiency of your home, reduce your energy bill.
Easy to Clean
Frosted glass windows are also easy to clean. The glass can be wiped clean with a cloth and, due to its textured surface, it does not streak as easily as other types of glass.
