For the Glass to be at its optimum strength, it is heat toughened and will then provide a strength which is approximately 5 times that of normal annealed glass. It can be sandblasted, painted, etched, bent, scribbled on and comes in a range of basic colours. The colours we can supply are Blue, Bronze, Green, Smoked grey. There is also a satin, that is very similar to sandblasted but less pitted and more smooth to the touch.

We have even seen 10mm glass being used as a snowboard
