Orient acid etched glass with an attractive smooth, silky surface is an innovative decorative glass product, and can be used to enhance all areas of the home. Produced by acid etching one face of a piece of clear glass, it has a distinctive, uniformly smooth and satin-like appearance. As a translucent product, it admits light whilst still providing obscuration and vision control
When used in the home Orient acid etched glass helps to create a unique feeling of warmth and elegance by diffusing light and emitting a certain purity of colour and light
Both internally and externally Orient acid etched glass provides privacy by obscuring unwanted attention, without compromising light levels
Thanks to its satin-smooth surface the glass does not mark with dirt and fingerprints, as readily as traditional etched and sandblasted glasses, providing a low maintenance product
Ideal for use in interiors, Orient acid etched glass can be sited in a wide variety of applications:
Shower screens (the acid etched face needs to be positioned away from contact with the water)
Furniture, eg cupboard doors, shelves and tables.
The strength of the support structure must be taken into account when calculating the size of the panels.
Avoid installing glass directly in contact with a significant heat source
Positioning of the glass sheets:
Pattern facing upwards for reduced slippage
Pattern facing downwards for areas in which ease of cleaning is important.
