Surrey Etched Glass

victorian_etched_glass_doorEtched Glass supplier to the Surrey area

Etched glass or Sandblasted glass is one of the oldest forms of decorative glass on the market but it can also be used to create a truly modern and contemporary art glass feature and it has been used on many of Surreys grand buildings and commercial buildings. This traditional design on the left has been created using a sandblasted design on clear toughened glass.

How is Etched Glass created?

Etched glass is a great decorative glass product that is very popular in the Surrey area and it is ideal for traditional door designs and contemporary commercial projects. This style of art glass gives an amazing effect without taking away any of the natural light. We have produced many etched glass designs that have been installed in the Surrey area and it is a very popular form of decorative glass.

A vinyl transfer is ‘cut to shape’ and overlayed onto one side of the glass, the glass is then inserted into a shot blasting booth and coarse grit/sand is fired at high speed over the design. Once an even finish is achieved, the vinyl transfer is removed, leaving the clear areas unmarked with the ‘blasted’ areas creating the etched design.

Etched glass house numbersYour numbers up!!

Etched glass is an ideal form of decorative glass for text and numbers on door glass and door glass top lights. Many homes in Surrey have top lights above the door with an etched number and this is one of the most common requests that Leadbitter Glass receives. If your Surrey home has a top light or fanlight above the door, we can create a panel with your house number/name in etched glass and we can even show you exactly what it will look like before we manufacture it by using our Client Pages service. This service is free to all Surrey area customers when an order is placed and you can even request this service for a small fee before the order is placed.
