Glass Colours

Glass Colours and Tints

Whenever we do quotes for Frameless Glass pool fences In the Gold Coast we often have individuals inquiring about coloured glass. For the most part, we don’t use glass that has been colourised– but the styles of glass we work with do vary in their purity.

A great deal of the glass that is manufactured today is made to fit budgets, and often this common glass is the one which is used for day-to-day Frameless Glass pool fences. That being said, if you are hunting for a greater look, or added strength, Absolut Custom glass can help you – there are naturally types of glass that can appear to be much more clear than the others.

The clear glass that we most frequently use on the Gold Coast are Starphire, UltraClear, Optiwhite, Starwhite and Krystal Klear just to name a few.

Just what is the difference?

Generally, the process of making this very clear glass starts in the manufacturing process. Normal toughened glass will ordinarily have a slight green tint to it. This is not typically obvious to the naked eye when looking straight at a panel. It becomes more obvious when you look down an edge of the glass, this is where it may look fairly green.

often to the untrained eye, all the glass will look clear, up until you put a piece of a style of ultra-clear glass up beside the standard glass. These sorts of Ultra clear glass are an outcome of the manufacturer decreasing the amount of iron content in the glass.

Many people don’t often consider iron in glass, but it is an aspect that is a very important component of the manufacturing process with glass. And to create this low iron content glass, they usually use a Silica-rich process instead– silica being an ingredient found in sand.

There are some terrific positive aspects to this kind of glass, and not just the visual appeal. We have actually seen a sizable increase in the production of ultra-clear styles of glass thanks to the solar panel industry. Because this kind of glass can hold heat energy longer it is the recommended choice for solar panel glass. This says that we will keep seeing manufacturing costs lower down the road due to this increase in demand.

But just like any element of a Custom Glass Pool Fence on the Gold Coast, you need to consider your swimming pool size and budget– often these top-quality glass types are looked at as a luxury product.
