Green glass - The timeless classic
Sliding doors or table tops made of glass: On closer inspection, you can see a typical green tint. The reason: the composition of the molten glass during production.
Normal glass - also called calcium nitrate silicate glass, is the time-tested type of glass - whether for windows, glass doors, glass inserts, glass furniture, drinking bottles, vases or drinking glass made of recycled glass.
At the cut edge of the glass, the greenish colouring is particularly visible. The reason for this: Quartz sand, calcium oxide, sodium oxide, aluminium oxide and magnesium oxide are used to produce glass. Other oxides, such as iron oxide, are also used to a small extent. The proportion of iron oxide is responsible for the greenish discolouration. If the iron oxide content is higher, the green tint in the glass pane also increases. The thicker the pane of glass, the better you can see the green tint.
Glass with high safety: TSG or LSG
The same applies to safety glass: here, too, a green tint can be seen in the classic version. It also has increased impact resistance - compared to "normal" flat glass. If the safety glass panel does break, it shatters into many small pieces without sharp edges. TSG (toughened safety glass) and LSG (laminated safety glass) are thermally toughened, which makes them much more stable and resilient than ordinary glass panels. TSG glass consists of one pane of glass, while LSG glass consists of two glass plates in which an additional film is stretched. Laminated safety glass also has a sound-absorbing effect. Choice of interior door: A door made of safety glass is always advisable. Especially if you choose a sliding glass door.
Glass door: Cool green as a visual highlight
Green glass sets a special, unagitated colour accent in rooms - without actually being coloured glass itself. Especially with wood and in combination with other natural colour nuances, this results in a noble living room design: green glass is particularly popular for glass room doors in the country house style. Glass doors are timeless and fit into any living concept. The matching door fittings round off the overall concept. Glass swing doors and sliding glass doors with a handle shell or handle bar allow rooms to be flooded with light and make them appear even larger.
Plain float glass (TSG): Decorated glass doors made of green glass
To add further visual highlights, there are numerous creative design options for decorating glass doors. Whether motifs, patterns, lettering or satin glass areas with clear glass recesses or light cut-outs: The perfect glass door can be found for all styles.
Glass revolving door: Depending on which DIN standard you choose - DIN left or DIN right, motif wishes can be individually designed, depending on the swing direction of the door. Satin and clear in one: The LINES RISING glass revolving door combines both. Completely opaque: The ALL SATIN 501 model protects against unwanted views, but does not forego the translucency of the glass door. For those who prefer words: our TYPO range from GRIFFWERK offers decorative lettering for all rooms in the house.
Sliding glass doors: A sliding door system offers full light transmission. The sliding door glides open and closed in the running track. A sliding door is particularly suitable for high rooms or rooms with little space. The all-glass door closes softly thanks to a softclose mechanism. Matching door handles round off the sliding door as a visual eye-catcher. The sliding door can also be constructed completely frosted or with clear glass recesses - in green, white or grey glass.
