Glasart by Griffwerk
The passion for glass took hold of us in 2014, when we designed our first collection of glass doors. It is a fascinating material. Glass is produced of natural or nature-identical inorganic raw materials only. Most of the components occur in Germany or are produced here. Glass is 100 % reusable. It is usually processed using iron oxide, which is responsible for the greenish tinge in conventional flat glass. For production of white glass PURE WHITE by GRIFFWERK, the iron oxide share is reduced, which also reduces the green tinge.
White glass has a special light effect and will make patterns stand out brilliantly. This high-quality material is further processed with refinement and print procedures. In 2016, we discovered the options of laser technology. We are able to produce and develop laser-pro-cessed doors in our main seat in Southern German Blaustein. We wish you great joy in choosing your glass door.
LSG PRIME meets Laser
Laminated safety glass brilliantly stands out with a number of benefits. First of all, there is the higher safety if glass breaks. The fragments adhere to the inner, tear-proof film, thus minimising the danger of injury. Additionally, our LSG PRIME glass doors are made of two connected ESG glass panes. They are characterised by crumbly fragmentation that prevents cuts. This is good to know. Safety comes first, especially for families. The decision to use LSG PRIME glass rightfully ensures a good feel.
LSG PRIME glass has plenty to offer aesthetically as well. The inner film can be coloured matte-grey smoky or even opaque. Colour tonalities in the interior can be controlled this way, and the desired degree of sight protection can be chosen freely. Now all laser patterns are avaliable on LSG PRIME.
SMOKED GLASS MOON GREY
We generally recommend PURE WHITE BY GRIFFWERK white glass for glass doors. At least we have so far. The new greys have convinced us. Four new colour nuances will supplement the range for 2017.
There is no way to deny it: A light bulb has a light colour, too. Unfortunately, however, it is only one. Daylight in contrast offers any number of nuances. Cool morning twilight, warm mid-day sun or mystic moonlight: each time of the day makes rooms appear "in a new light". Glass doors provide space for this play of light. MOON GREY turns the room into a mysteriously shining silver-grey.
Laser doors by Griffwerk meet the ESG-Standard
GRIFFWERK offers tested safety for laser-treated glass doors of single-pane safety glass. According to the general building supervisory approval from the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBT), the laser technology applied by GRIFFWERK was able to meet all specifications. GRIFFWERK was therefore approved for marking these glass doors with the ESG test stamp.
The stamp contains the number of the standard (DIN EN 12150); GRIFFWERK places it visually unobtrusively on the glass edge at the hinge side. ESG is available from GRIFFWERK as green glass or the high-quality white glass variation PURE WHITE by GRIFFWERK. Both glass types can be laser-treated on request and continue to meet the ESG standard then.

Product overview glass doors
Glass doesn't need to be green
Usually, glass doors are produced using calcium sodium silicate glass. It has a clearly green tinge. This is caused by the iron oxide used for the glass melt. Depending on lighting, the green tinge in the material may be more or less evident. The brighter, whiter and clearer the interior design, the more annoying will the discolouration be. The difference will be considerable even in front of a simple white wall. Contemporary architecture particularly values purity and high-quality materials.
The pure difference
With PURE WHITE by GRIFFWERK, daylight can enter inner rooms unclouded so that colours and specifically whites will appear true and clearly. White glass is verifiably more light-permeable than the green basic version. Light permeability of a six-millimetres thick glass door is improved by approx. three percent. The light gain is even greater on large areas. The light falling through is also pure and colour-neutral. Light is one of the primary reasons for choosing glass instead of wooden doors in the interior area.
Why White glass?
Simple float glass has a clear green tinge, which changes the light effect and also can be performed by a clear discolouration in the glass surface. PURE WHITE by GRIFFWERK remains colour neutral.
Fascinating Laser technology
Bundled light engraves delicate lines into the glass surface. Point by point and precisely controllable, detailed motives and finely graduated progressions can thus be transferred to glass. Our laser places microscopically small pixels next to each other, permitting photo realistic results. The deeper engravings change the light reflection. Laterally ingressing light makes the patterns virtually light up. Laser-processed glass doors remain transparent. If you wish more protection from looks, simply pick the version in TWO-SIDES with rear satination.
Light in its strongest form
Thanks to innovative laser technology, particularly fine and haptically interesting texture can be engraved on glass. The surfaces are permanently resilient and easy to clean.
Two sides of a door
The most glass doors in the GRIFFWERK-collection are also available in the version "TWO-SIDES". Here the door is fully matted on the rear to shield against looks for more privacy. So you can choose between two different versions of your favorite decoration.
The GRIFFWERK-range offers most glass doors in two versions. In the TWO SIDES version, the door is fully matted on the rear to shield against looks.
Laser technology permits very fine engravings. They delicately draw through the glass surface. The course of the lines is permitted to vary: strictly lined up, compacting, overlaying or unevenly interrupted.
In VSG doors, a PVB-film is embedded between two ESG panes. This offers true additional safety: if the glass breaks, the shards will remain adhering to the film. Both sides are high-gloss and easy to clean. High-quality VSG doors also convince with better sound protection properties.
The high-gloss surfaces of the glass door design PIANO WHITE offer pure white reflection. They are a refined eye-catcher, especially in rooms designed in white. They also are an invitation to subtly play with the appearances of different surfaces.
We love the opposites of high-gloss glass in contrast with rough stone, natural wood or matte wall plaster. PIANO BLACK in deeply black glass is a special statement. VSG TRANSLUCENT is opaque but light-permeable as well.
care note for glass doors
When you clean your interior glass, it is enough to clean the surface with warm water. For this, use a sponge or a soft, lint-free cloth. Clean a large area, rather than pointedly.
If there are any residues, e.g. of fingerprints, you can also use commercial glass cleaners (foam cleaner). Please do not use any abrasive, corrosive, acid-containing or alkaline cleaning agents, since these will attack the glass surface and also may cause scratches. Excessive water can be wiped dry with a microfiber cloth. When water acts on the glass surface for an extended period, stubborn lime residue may form.
For LSG doors, observe that the edge composite must not get into contact with water, since this may cause moisture and cleaning agent to enter the laminate.
For satined and laser-treated surfaces
To prevent abrasion of the surface structure, you should not apply too much pressure here. To avoid clouding, rub your door dry generously with a microfiber cloth. Do not use paper or cellulose cloths, since they are too abrasive.
For screen-print glasses
Screen-printed surfaces are softer than the pure glass surface and therefore more sensitive against mechanical cleaning agents. They also must not be cleaned with acids since they may attack the print pattern.
Please do not use any scratching tools, razor blades or scrapers. They can leave visible and irreparable scratches on the surface.
