Are there different Colours of Glass?
Whenever we carry out quotes for Frameless Glass pool fences In the Gold Coast we in many cases have people asking about coloured glass. Usually, we don’t use glass that has been colourised– but the sorts of glass we use do vary in their clarity.
A considerable amount of the glass that is manufactured today is made to suit budgets, and often this basic glass is the one which is used for day-to-day Frameless Glass pool fences. However, if you are looking for a greater look, or added strength, Absolut Custom glass can help you – there are naturally types of glass that can look much more clear than the others.
The clear glass which we most frequently use on the Gold Coast are Starphire, UltraClear, Optiwhite, Starwhite and Krystal Klear just to list a few.
Exactly what is the difference?
Actually, the process of making this very clear glass starts in the manufacturing system. Normal toughened glass will ordinarily have a slight green tint to it. This is not usually obvious to the naked eye when looking right at a panel. It becomes more apparent when you look down a border of the glass, this is the place where it may look relatively green. Often to the untrained eye, all the glass will look clear, unless you put a piece of a style of ultra-clear glass up next to the standard glass. These kinds of Ultra clear glass are a result of the manufacturer reducing the amount of iron content in the glass.
Many people don’t often think of iron in glass, but it is an element that is an extremely important portion of the manufacturing process with glass. And to create this low iron content glass, they often use a Silica-rich process instead– silica being an ingredient found in sand.
There are some fantastic benefits to this kind of glass, and not just the visual appeal. We have in fact seen a sizable surge in the manufacture of ultra-clear styles of glass as a result of the solar panel industry. Because this kind of glass can hold heat longer it is the favoured choice for solar panel glass. This shows that we will keep seeing production costs decrease in the future due to this increase in demand.
