Textured Glass Options:
Textured glass options – including satin, frosted, and glue chip – are great for improved privacy! These options are great for bathrooms, ground floor and basement windows, or other rooms which require permanent privacy.
Tinted Glass Options:
Glass tints – including grey and bronze – help to control glare and add some privacy during the day by lending colour and exterior shine to the glass, reducing visibility from the exterior; tinted glass provides little to-no privacy at night. Tinted glass also provides a unique, modern aesthetic.
What is Triple Glass?
Triple glass features a glass unit which is composed of three panes of glass, as opposed to our standard two panes. Just as our dual-pane glass, the panes of glass are separated by a ‘spacer bar’ and sealed with argon gas between the glass. Triple glass was created to address efficiency in extreme climates like the Canadian north.
