What type of glass do I need for my bespoke glass project?
Depending on the intended application for your bespoke glass, there will be a variety of options and considerations;
Glass Table Tops and Table Covers
If looking to use a custom piece of glass to make a table top then toughened glass is required. The thickness required will be dependent on whether the glass will be minimally supported, such as when making a bespoke desk, or perhaps act as a cover or protector for a counter top or coffee table, where the glass will sit flush on the furniture. In the first instance 10mm is a good option, for glass table protectors, depending on the size, 4mm and 6mm is often used.
Bespoke Glass kitchen splashbacks, whether being mounted and secured with standoffs, or when being fixed to the wall with adhesive, 6mm toughened glass is the most common choice for the glass itself. It is durable and generally more manageable when fitting. For more information view our page here.
Bespoke Shower Glass
In the case of a bespoke shower glass panel, complete custom shower enclosure, or a shower glass screen, the most common toughened glass to use is a thickness of either 8mm or 10mm with a polished edge. These thicknesses are often used for frameless glass doors for utility rooms, wet rooms and other situations where perhaps glass is a better choice than wood. The 12mm glass thickness is mainly used when the glass shower panel is going to be free standing.
For glass office partitions and large free-standing glass panels, 12mm is most commonly used. The wide variety of hardware for use when constructing the glass divider is often for 12mm thickness.
Internal and external glass balustrading can have building control implications, so you should check with them to ensure your project will be signed off. As a point of reference, frameless glass balustrading when being fitted into a base rail of similar, will be a toughened laminate glass (essentially two pieces of bespoke toughened glass with an interlayer). The thickness for which range from 9.5mm up to 25.5mm. For glass balustrade applications with the inclusion of a handrail, either 10mm of 12mm toughened glass can be suitable. The same is said for infill glass panels on stairs, where glass is being used to replace existing spindles.
Glass Roofing and Green House Glass
For roofing and green house glass, either a toughened glass (4mm or 6mm) or a laminate safety glass is used. The thickness of which varies from 6.4mm up to 15.8mm. Clear laminated glass is often used in windows and shop fronts for example, as if the glass is broken/compromised, it will shatter with a spider web pattern, but the integrity of the glass remains.
