Can you see through obscure glass?
Somewhat. The meaning of obscure glass is glass the blurs put does not entirely block the view in or out. The first thing to remember is that there are degrees of obscuration, from low levels that one can partially see through to high levels that are almost completely opaque.
Types of obscure glass
We are experts in many types of glazing and our team members are a reliable source for advice and consultation on many varieties of obscure glass. Types of obscure glass include the following:
- Aquatex glass: The use of aquatex glass is common in shower enclosures, as it creates a similar effect to what you might see when opening your eyes underwater, so it provides a low level of obscuration. It is also useful for small bathroom windows on lower levels or bathroom roof lights.
- Reeded glass: If you are looking for a low level of obscuration with a neater pattern then reeded glass is a good choice, it has the appearance of dense reeds lining up next to one another. Reeded glass can work particularly well on front doors as it creates a sense of formality and splendour.
- Satinlite glass: Another low-level obscuration option is satinlite, which as the name suggests creates the look of satin. It is a shimmering design with a neat appearance and etching is used during manufacture to create this appearance. Thick satinlite glass, or more panes, can increase obscuration.
- Silver mist glass: Using silver mist glass gives you a look that is similar to frosted glass, you can commonly see it on desks and kitchen splashbacks. It provides a low level of obscuration, but a very plain look. It also reacts well to light, adding an appealing glimmer when illuminated.
- Privacy glass: For the ultimate obscuration privacy glass is a good option, which is available under several different brand names. Privacy glass is a smart glass technology that uses an electrical current to instantly switch from clear to opaque white, it is great for any room in flats on high floors.
These are some common types of obscure glass that offer different levels of obscuration, and higher amounts of glazing, colouring or decoration and increase obscuration further. The best type of obscure glass will depend on the nature of your installation and how much obscuration you require.
