Standard Textured / Patterned Glass
Distinctive Choices, Wide Appeal
Guardian textured / patterned glass offers distinctive choices that add visual interest to any design. Our unique patterns create a subtle shifting of light for the perfect combination of enhanced beauty and variability in light control. Differing levels of opacity can create confidential spaces for offices, hospitals, residences and other settings.
Patterned glass is created by pressing a distinct pattern into semi-molten glass, allowing for a multitude of interior design possibilities by incorporating the use of various patterns, opacities, and color laminates. Patterned glass offers beauty, privacy, and visibility and is ideal for doors, escalators, shower enclosures, furniture, elevators, case goods, staircases and railings, displays and fixtures and office spaces.
With our options at your fingertips, you can find a standard glass texture for virtually every application and aesthetic, from traditional to modern. Perfect as a primary element or when used to highlight other design features, standard textures are available in a wide range of options and at an exceptional value.
Combine standard textures with other InGlass products to add beauty and performance for shower protection, sound control, privacy, light control, scratch resistance, and safety or security.
