About Rain Glass in Brisbane

Rain glass is one of those cases when the name is extremely suggestive and perfectly describes the item.

This type of glass looks as if rain is pouring down on it! It has a streaked pattern and a unique and easily identifiable style.

Rain glass is appreciated for its texture and look, but also for the qualities that derive from it.

There are many different uses for it around the house and we’ll cover a few of them.

One of the most common uses for rain glass is as privacy panels or shower enclosures for the bathroom.

Because of its design inspired by nature, rain glass can be used to give the bathroom a zen look and to create a relaxing and comfortable ambiance.

With rain glass you can make the shower cabin a semi-private nook without completely giving it an independent identity.

This is useful when you’re trying to maintain a spacious and open décor while also benefiting from enough privacy for a comfortable feel.

Safety glass is a product that is designed to cause minimal injury when it breaks, compared to regular annealed glass. The two most commonly used safety glass products are laminated glass and toughened/tempered glass. Both products have very different and distinct features that provide various levels of safety and security.

Yes, however, the entire panel of glass will usually need to be replaced. We recommend replacing these panels with toughened glass as the hole required for the pet door makes the glass weak. Toughened glass alleviates this issue.

Laminated glass is two pieces of glass laminated together with an interlayer. When it breaks, it cracks but holds together, like a windscreen. Toughened glass is just one panel, but has undergone a process to make it 4-5 times stronger than normal glass. When it breaks, it shatters into thousands of small pieces the size of a fingernail.

Sometimes toughened glass will shatter instantaneously, without an apparent reason. This is often due to a small flaw within the glass itself from manufacture. If the flaw is present, the glass failure could happen at any time.
