Our enthusiasm for Glass was sparked in 2014 when we designed our first collection of Glass doors. Glass is a fascinating material because it is made exclusively from Nature or Nature-identical inorganic raw materials. Glass is a sustainable material that is 100 % recyclable. We process this high-quality material using finishing and printing processes. In 2016, we began researching the possibilities of laser technology and incorporating it into our production. We can produce and develop laser doors ourselves at our headquarters in Blaustein in southern Germany. Here is our catalog:


Glass door: home inspired

Glass doors make excellent room doors - whether for the kitchen, living room, hallway or bathroom. Replacing an existing door with a Glass door is very easy. For a glass revolving door, you can even use the existing frame. With Sliding doors made of glass, you can restage transitions between rooms. This looks good and saves space. None of the revolving glass doors or folding doors need to be pivoted. They run along the wall to save space. With the so-called Soft and self-closing mechanism, you treat yourself to additional convenience.

Every model from the GRIFFWERK range is basically available as a glass revolving door or as a Sliding door system.

Even in smaller apartments, previously unused side rooms can be transformed into attractive workrooms with the help of these models.

Glass types for your all glass doors

TSG or LSG - The difference

TSG = toughened safety glass.

Specially heat-treated glass with increased impact and shock resistance. In the event of breakage, small, blunt shards are produced.

  • High safety
  • High impact and shock resistance
  • Blunt-edged shards in case of glass breakage
  • Flexible design options

LSG = laminated safety glass

LSG PRIME DOORS consist of two thermally toughened safety glasses and an inner, tear-resistant film. In the event of breakage, the shards adhere to this intermediate layer. LSG PRIME glass also has sound-absorbing properties.

  • High safety
  • More sound insulation
  • Ideal for XL formats
  • Matting possible on both sides
  • Highest opacity possible
  • Rich sound when closing

What is the DIN direction for glass doors?

The DIN direction indicates in which direction a door opens. Do you want to find out which DIN direction is the right one for you? Then imagine you are standing in front of the door. It opens towards you. The side on which the hinges of the Hinged door are located - also called the hinge side - determines the DIN direction.

If the hinges are on the right, it is a DIN right-hand door.

If the hinges are on the left, your door is a DIN left door.

What is the tape side and the tape opposite side?

Door hinges connect a door to the door frame and at the same time allow it to rotate. The hinge side (2) is the side on which the door hinges (1) are located. The opposite hinge side (3) refers to the side opposite the door hinges.


Glass door finishing techniques: technology and advantages at a glance

Glass door with digital printing

In the digital printing process, a motif is printed on the interior security film of an all-glass door made of laminated safety glass.

With transparent films, the design can be seen from both sides - mirror-inverted on the back of the Glass door. However, the film can also be matt or white, for example, which makes printed photos and motifs stand out clearly.

Advantages digital printing

  • None fading of the Color thanks to protection from NL radiation by bonding of film and glass panes
  • High resolution
  • Radiant and high light fastness of colors behind the glass
  • Transparency and translucency (light transmission)

Glass doors with screen printing

For screen printing on the glass door, ceramic paint is permanently baked into the glass during the manufacturing process of the toughened safety glass.

The screen printing process additionally seals the glass surface with the application of motifs. The finished glass door has a closed, smooth surface that is extra scratch-resistant.

Advantages screen printing

  • Very high scratch resistance
  • Abrasion and weather resistant
  • Hard-wearing
  • Easy to clean
  • Precise printing of motifs

Glass door with laser technology

For finishing with laser technology, laser beams are bundled and focused with millimeter precision. The laser penetrates 0.3 mm deep into the surface of the glass. The spot where the laser hits is melted for a short time. Safety glass is not negatively affected. Precisely controlled laser beams create images on the glass using a series of dots.

Advantages laser technology

  • Stunning clarity and sharpness
  • High luminosity and beautiful lighting effect
  • Noble and stylish
  • Individual ideas can be easily realized

Fascination Laser Technology

Special lasers engrave filigree Lines into the glass surface. Point by point and precisely controllable, detailed images, patterns and lettering as well as finely graduated gradients can be transferred to the Glass. Our laser places microscopically small pixels next to each other for this purpose, so that photorealistic results can be achieved. The recessed engravings change the reflection of light. Lasered Glass doors remain transparent. The TWO SIDES option with satin finish on the back provides more privacy.

Laser-engraved glass doors from Griffwerk meet ESG standard

GRIFFWERK offers tested safety for lasered glass doors made of single-pane safety glass ("TSG glass"). According to the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBT), the laser technology applied by GRIFFWERK fulfils all requirements. Since then GRIFFWERK is allowed to mark all glass doors with the TSG test stamp.

The stamp contains the number of the standard (DIN EN 12150) and is placed on the edge of the glass on the hinge side. ESG is available from GRIFFWERK as green glass or elegant white glass PURE WHITE by GRIFFWERK. Both types of glass also meet the ESG standard when lasered.

This allows you to choose from a variety of favorite designs for your all-glass door while getting more privacy with the frosted glass.

By the way, our TWO SIDES option has nothing to do with the difference in DIN Direction - that is, whether you are dealing with "DIN Left" or "DIN Right" doors. If hinges and hinges are mounted on the left, they are "DIN-left" doors. If they are mounted on the right, they are "DIN right" doors.

What is Laser One Side?

  • ONE SIDE means one-sided processing of the all-glass door with laser technology.
  • Here a clear glass blank is used
  • The transparency of the door is maintained
  • Depending on the incidence of light, the lasered area scores with its high luminosity
  • One Side is very noble and stylish

What is Laser TWO SIDE?

How do I clean my Glass door?

When cleaning your interior glass, it is sufficient to clean it with warm water. Use a sponge or a soft, lint-free cloth for this purpose. Clean over a large area, not selectively.

If there are residues, such as fingerprints, you can also use commercially available glass cleaners (foam cleaners). Please refrain from using corrosive, acidic or alkaline cleaning agents, as these can cause scratches. Excess water can simply be wiped dry with a microfiber cloth. If water acts on the Glass door over a longer period of time, stubborn lime residues can form.

In the case of Laminated glass doors, make sure that the edge seal does not come into contact with water, otherwise moisture and the cleaning agent can penetrate the laminate.

For Satin frosted and lasered surfaces
To avoid abrasion, do not apply too much pressure here. To prevent cloud formation, rub your glass door dry over a large area with a microfiber cloth. None use paper or cellulose cloths. They cause too much abrasion.

For screen printed glass
Screen printed models are softer than pure glass and therefore more sensitive to mechanical cleaning agents. In addition, they must not come into contact with acids, as these can attack the printed image.

Attention
Please do not use any scratching tools, razor blades or scrapers. They can leave visible and irreparable scratch marks.

7 Tips for more privacy for Glass doors

Glass doors are not only aesthetically pleasing, but can also provide security and privacy when designed properly. Here are some practical tips on how to make your Glass doors more secure and intimate:

  1. Privacy films: use frosted glass or privacy films to frost the glass. These films are available in a variety of designs and provide adequate privacy while allowing natural light to continue to stream in.
  2. Choose glass types: Opt for etched or textured glass that diffuses light but prevents clear sight lines. This is an ideal option for areas like bathrooms or bedrooms.
  3. Pair with curtains: Install curtains or blinds that can be closed when needed for protection. These can be stylish and complement the ambiance of the room.
  4. Focus on positioning: Place Glass doors in areas where privacy is less important, such as between living and dining areas, to maximize natural light.
  5. Add texture: Choose Glass doors with structured or colored elements to add visual interest while maintaining privacy.
  6. Smart Lighting: Use cleverly placed lighting to brighten areas around Glass doors and create distractions from the glass surface.
  7. Multiple Glazing: In areas where security is a greater concern, the use of double-glazed or laminated glass can increase stability and safety.

Glass doors: FAQ

What does a glass door cost?

You can even find reasonably priced glass doors from Griffwerk for less than 150 euros. Our most luxurious models are priced at more than 1000 euros.

Can a glass door be installed in a normal frame?

Yes. Existing frames for wooden doors can also be used for glass doors. When installing a glass door, please note whether 2-part hinges or 3-part hinges are to be used. To match the respective hinges, only the frame section needs to be replaced, readjusted and screwed tight. Then just hang it in place. That's it.

Which frame for a glass door?

For glass doors, you can use your existing frame.

How can glass doors be shortened?

Not at all. A glass door made of safety glass cannot be shortened or cut. Doors made of safety glass include TSG (toughened safety glass) or LSG (laminated safety glass) doors. The manufacturing process of a safety glass door hardens the glass. Due to the tempering of the glass, the glass door would shatter if it were shortened.

Can Glass doors be used for cabinet doors?

Yes, Glass doors are a stylish option for cabinet doors and can reveal the contents.

Can you replace a wooden door with a glass door?

Basically, it is possible to keep the frame of a wooden door and only replace the door leaf. In this case, you should first measure whether your frame corresponds to a standard dimension. To do this, measure the rebate dimensions. To do this, take the distance between the inner edges of the rebate cladding in width and the distance between the lower edge of the rebate cladding to the upper edge of the floor covering in height. If the rebate dimensions are standardised, you can choose your new glass door directly and install it in the frame.

If you need special dimensions, you can either have a new frame fitted so that you can use standard sizes. As a cost-effective alternative, we recommend having the glass door leaf custom-cut.

Also bear in mind that the glass door needs to be drilled. This cannot be done on site - a professional should drill the glass door before installation. The door fittings are then fitted in the resulting recesses.

Furthermore, you should bear in mind that not every door hinge will work with the new glass door. However, you can replace these without any problems.

Is it possible to make a glass door opaque afterwards?

Glass doors can also be subsequently satinized. By laser or sandblasting the glass becomes milky and opaque.

Where can you buy glass doors?

The best place to buy is from specialised retailers, such as glaziers or timber merchants. You can view and compare the products of different manufacturers and designers in online shops as well as in stationary specialist shops. You can find recommended dealers online at https://www.griffwerk.de/en/store-locator/

What designs are available for the glass door?

First of all, you can choose different glass qualities at Griffwerk: Green glass (BASIC GREEN), white glass (PURE WHITE) or gray glass (MOON GREY, SMODEK GREY, SATIN GREY). The latter offers some privacy, thanks to gray shading.

Then there are several ways to design a glass door: Frosted, partially frosted, screen or digitally printed with motifs, sandblasted or laser engraving the glass door. 

How sensitive is LSG?

LSG prime glass doors can withstand a lot. This is already due to the fact that the door leaf is made of two TSG panes. LSG has a significantly higher stability than normal float glass. For example, the bending strength alone is three times as high. The impact and shock resistance is also significantly better. These properties are achieved by a thermal pre-treatment of the ready-cut TSG pane. The glass is heated and then cooled relatively quickly. Two different tensions are created in the glass. There is compressive stress on the inside and tensile stress on the surface. Unfortunately, these stress conditions also have disadvantages, because TSG becomes very sensitive at the edges. The edges are actually the weakest point of a pane. This also applies to LSG glass doors.

Why green or gray glass for the glass door?

Green glass adds a special unexciting color accent to rooms - without actually being colored glass itself. Glass doors made of green glass are timeless and fit into any living concept. 

We offer a glass door made of green glass as an ESG or VSG variant. 

Why use white glass for LSG doors?

The two-layer structure of a laminated safety glass door would also double the green tint present in regular float glass. We therefore recommend colour-neutral white glass PURE WHITE BY GRIFFWERK for glass doors made of laminated safety glass - especially if these are to be frosted over a large area, as the frosting further emphasises the inherent colour of the material.

Glass door: Which glass for room-high doors?

We recommend a thickness of 10.8 mm for larger formats. In principle, toughened safety glass or laminated safety glass doors with a thickness of 8.8 mm can also be installed. However, due to the height and the larger amount of glass, we would advise a LSG door with a thickness of 10.8 mm. Room-height doors appear remarkably spacious and create an open living feeling. In LSG, they are of particularly high quality.

What tips are there for more privacy with Glass doors?

Glass doors are not only aesthetically pleasing, but can also provide security and privacy when carefully designed. Below are some practical recommendations on how to make your Glass doors more secure and intimate:

  1. Privacy films: use frosted glass or privacy films to frost the glass. These films are available in a variety of designs and provide adequate privacy while still allowing natural light to stream in.
  2. Choose glass types: Opt for etched or structured Glass that diffuses light but prevents clear sight lines. This is an ideal option for areas such as bathrooms or bedrooms.
  3. Combine with curtains: Install curtains or blinds that can be closed when needed to provide privacy. These can be stylish and complement the ambience of the room.
  4. Focus on positioning: Place Glass doors in areas where privacy is less important, such as between living and dining areas, to maximize natural light.
  5. Add texture: Choose Glass doors with structured or colored elements to add visual interest while maintaining privacy.
  6. Smart Lighting: Use cleverly placed lighting to illuminate areas around Glass doors and create distractions from the glass surface.
  7. Multiple glazing: In areas where security is a greater concern, the use of double glazed or laminated Glass can increase stability and security.

Is it possible to install a Glass door without a frame?

Glass door without frame can be installed in a doorway in certain cases, but it depends on the type of doorway. Sliding doors and Double action doors are often better suited for installation without a frame, as they require less framing. Hinged doors can be more difficult to achieve a stable installation Without a frame. Regardless of Door type, it is important to ensure that the door is properly and securely fastened and meets local building codes. Professional help is often advisable to ensure a safe installation.

Why glass doors fit all interior styles?

For a perfect overall appearance of the room, the glass door must harmonize with the interior. Discreet in the background: glass doors fit ideally into any interior style due to their transparency. Only the door fittings of the glass door must be selected to match the style.

Glass door: More security desired?

If you want to make your home as barrier-free as possible, glass doors made of laminated safety glass are also a good choice. We also recommend doors with large-area decorations or frosted backs, as these are more visible. The purchase is worthwhile. It always feels good to invest in a little more security and comfort.

Why glass doors?

Glass doors allow natural daylight into every living space. Rooms appear larger thanks to transparent room transitions. A glass door offers privacy through opaque matting, but still lets light into the interior. ESG and VSG glass offer certified safety. Individual motifs on the glass door create a creative interior design. Glass doors are durable as they are less susceptible to scratches and wear. The material of the glass door has no evaporation and thus contributes to healthy living.

What are the disadvantages of Glass doors and how to counter them, if I do not want to give up glass doors?

Spots often cited as disadvantages of Glass doors are as follows:

  1. Lack of soundproofing: regular glass offers limited soundproofing, which can result in less privacy and noise between rooms.
  2. Limited privacy: transparent glass can compromise privacy, especially in intimate spaces such as bedrooms or bathrooms.
  3. Fingerprint and stain maintenance: Glass can easily reveal fingerprints and stains, requiring more frequent cleaning.
  4. Loss of thermal insulation: glass has lower thermal insulation capabilities compared to more solid door materials.

Here's how to deal with the perceived disadvantages:

  1. Sound Insulation: Glass insulates sound just like wood doors do. To further improve soundproofing, you can use thicker glass or special sound-absorbing glass. Additionally, curtains, rugs and wall coverings can absorb sound.
  2. Privacy: frosted or tinted glass continues to provide light while ensuring privacy. Alternatively, curtains or blinds can provide additional privacy.
  3. Maintenance: regular cleaning with glass cleaners minimizes fingerprints and stains. Opt for glass surfaces with anti-fingerprint coatings.
  4. Thermal insulation: combining Glass doors with good in-room thermal insulation, such as insulating Windows, can reduce heat loss.

Dealing with the drawbacks of Glass doors requires conscious planning and combination with other design and functional elements in the room. This allows you to take advantage of Glass doors while minimizing their negative aspects.

Save energy with glass doors?

Sure: glass doors let natural light into windowless rooms. This makes dark rooms appear bright and friendly. This saves you money: namely the electricity costs for artificial lighting. By the way, replacing an existing wooden door with a glass door is very easy. You can even use existing frames for hinged glass doors.

What door stops for the glass door?

At Griffwerk, we recommend for your glass door either rubberized stainless steel stoppers that are screwed into the floor or a stainless steel door stopper weighing up to one kilogram that does not need to be glued or screwed because of its own weight. A non-slip silicone base prevents slipping on the floor.

How can you darken a glass door?

Optimum privacy is achieved with the help of a film that is inserted between two panes of toughened safety glass. In the Griffwerk range, you will find high-quality VSG PRIME glass that can bear matt, grey or opaque film in various colours and nuances. The advantage of opaque matting: with adequate privacy protection, enough light still flows into the room. Such doors are suitable, for example, for bedrooms, office doors and, of course, bathrooms.

Can LSG be cut?

No. Since our LSG glass doors are made of TSG panes, they cannot be cut. Due to the stress conditions in the single-pane safety glass (TSG), normal cutting wheels cannot be used. The glass would shatter. Later adjustment of your door is also not necessary. Griffwerk offers all common formats in its range. Special sizes can be ordered. It is best to use our practical measurement sheets to order your new glass door. So nothing can go wrong and everything fits perfectly.

How heavy is a sliding glass door?

The weight of a sliding glass door as an interior door depends on the thickness of the door leaf and the dimensions of the door. As a rule, they weigh between 30 and 40 kilograms.

When to use LSG?

Which glass variant is best depends greatly on the place of use. In highly frequented areas, we recommend laminated safety glass doors. Even if the home is rather turbulent, e.g. because children are running around, it makes sense to invest in a higher-quality LSG glass.

How soundproof are glass doors?

Anyone who wants sound insulation can opt for glass doors. In principle, all-glass revolving doors can provide sound insulation up to class 2 (SK2 according to DIN 4109) - i.e. offer the same sound insulation as wooden doors. This is mainly because glass throws sound back into the room rather than letting it through. The reason is simple: glass has no cavities and does not vibrate easily, which would amplify sound. 
Tip: A door leaf made of LSG glass, unlike simple single-pane safety glass (TSG), has sound-absorbing properties. The sound insulation film is softer and decouples the panes. As a result, the sound is better insulated. 
A special feature of glass doors: they need a floor gap so that dirt particles such as small stones do not damage the glass. This minor disadvantage is easy to compensate for: with sound-absorbing materials in the rooms - such as deep pile carpets or curtains.

How safe is a glass door?

Provided that you properly handle glass doors before and during installation, they are safe. So: do not put them on the edges, but on soft wood, styrofoam or cardboard - avoid bumping.
Glass doors are made of safety glass TSG (single-pane safety glass) or LSG (laminated safety glass) - this makes them less sensitive than "normal glass panes". Therefore, this is much less sensitive than a simple pane of glass. A glass door on two wooden trestles holds well and gladly 2-3 people standing on it.

Which glass for glass doors?

Toughened safety glass is very robust and not very sensitive to impact on the glass surface. If the glass does break, small crumbs are produced without sharp edges.

With a laminated safety door, shards adhere to the laminated film. In the Griffwerk range you will find TSG and LSG ( LSG-Prime doors) with the respective safety properties.

Are glass doors burglar-proof?

Glass doors are tested for burglar-resistant properties in accordance with DIN EN 1627/1630.

What should you pay attention to with glass doors?

Glass doors cannot be subsequently shortened in height or width. When ordering the glass door, the appropriate size should therefore always be ordered. Special sizes are also possible. For a small surcharge, most glass doors are also available in a white glass version. These have a special lighting effect and brilliantly accentuate decors.

Are glass doors normed?

There are so-called norm doors for glass doors. These have standard dimensions so that they can be hung in various door frames. These are the widths: 709 mm, 834 mm and 959 mm, in combination with the heights 1972 mm or 2097 mm.

Can LSG be lasered?

Yes, Griffwerk also refines LSG glass doors with laser decorations. The filigree surface engraving by laser has an impressively noble effect on this premium material. Numerous motifs are available. Let yourself be inspired and enjoy the plus in aesthetics and security.

Are Glass doors more maintenance intensive than Wooden doors?

No, Glass doors usually require less maintenance as they do not rot or warp.

How to combine glass door and wooden door?

Glass doors are often combined with other wooden doors. This is ideal when all the fittings have been matched in terms of technology and surface. In the GRIFFWERK range you will also find fittings for flat entrance doors, wooden interior doors and even for windows in matching designs.

It is even possible to insert glass into existing wooden doors - so-called light cut-outs. We at Griffwerk also manufacture such a glass insert for wooden doors.

Why white glass for my glass door?

White glass has a special lighting effect, allows a particularly large amount of light into the room and shows off decors to brilliant effect. For the production of white glass PURE WHITE by GRIFFWERK, the iron oxide content is reduced to minimise the green cast.

Toughened safety glass or laminated safety glass? Which is better?

Both glasses provide a safe living feeling. TSG is very robust and insensitive to impacts on the surface. When damaged, it breaks into small crumbs. This prevents deep, serious cuts. With a laminated safety glass door, all shards also stick to the composite film, comparable to the windshield of a car. The shards do not splinter into the room. The door continues to hang in its anchorage due to the extremely tear-resistant foil. Interior foils for laminated safety glass are so efficient that they are also used for burglar-proof glass and are even produced in bullet-proof versions. LSG Prime doors from Griffwerk combine the security properties of ESG and LSG.

Glass doors in the bathroom?

The bathroom has long since evolved into a place that goes far beyond mere personal hygiene. Whether you linger in a relaxing tub bath in the evening or enjoy individual wellness rituals, your well-being depends on both privacy and a stylish ambience. This is where Glass doors come in as an ideal solution, offering a versatile choice with a Width range of glass designs. Glass doors with frosted glass look are very popular and have almost become a traditional element. The matt finish provides perfect privacy, allowing you to fully enjoy your bathroom in a personal and intimate atmosphere. Satin frosted glass can also be designed with artistic patterns or motifs, depending on your taste. Here, there are hardly any limits to your individual preferences and requirements. If you want to create a more lively atmosphere in the bathroom, you can opt for Glass doors with colored lacquer. These are completely opaque and can act as vibrant color accents.

How to clean LSG doors?

Glass is insensitive to acids, alkalis and solvents but is sensitive to scratches. Cleaning utensils should therefore be clean and soft. It is best to clean glass with plenty of clean water and a microfiber cloth or sponge. If necessary, commercial cleaners can be used. With laminated safety glass, care must be taken to ensure that the laminated film is not exposed to high levels of moisture. It is sufficient to simply dry it off so that any remaining moisture is removed.

What door handles fit glass door?

Door handles for glass doors are available in various materials: stainless steel, metal, brass, aluminum, plastic. Stylistically, they are chosen to match the interior.

How thick is LSG?

As a rule, LSG panes are 8.8 mm thick. However, the thickness of our LSG glass doors depends on the format. For larger formats, we recommend a thickness of 10.8 mm.

For which rooms are glass doors suitable? (Or: see Why glass doors?)

Glass doors are suitable for all rooms. Tightly closing glass door systems are also sound and heat insulating.

What types of glass are available for Glass doors?

There are various types of glass for glass doors, including clear glass, frosted glass, smoked glass, structured glass and more. The choice depends on your personal preferences and requirements.

What is meant by residual carrying capacity?

In the case of a glass breakage, the fragments of a laminated glass door do not only adhere to the film on the inside. The entire glass door remains suspended in the anchorage due to the high tensile strength of the film. It therefore does not fall to the floor and does not splinter into the room. LSG is therefore indispensable for overhead roofing in particular. The residual load-bearing capacity naturally also increases safety in the event of glass breakage in living areas.

Is laminated safety glass also available tinted?

Yes, of course, tinted glass can be processed into LSG doors. As a rule, however, special functional foils are used. The inner foil processed in a laminated glass door can be matt, opaque or colored and can even be printed with motifs. Double-sided frosted glass doors are particularly elegant. This is also possible with LSG glass.

What do LSG doors cost?

LSG doors are more expensive than TSG doors. After all, the manufacturing process is much more complex. If you have to pay closer attention to your budget, you can only use LSG doors where extra safety is particularly important. This is the case in some rooms, for example on staircases where there is a risk of tripping, in narrow corridors, in bathrooms (where floors can become slippery), at room transitions where there can be strong draughts and, in general, always in places where people who are in particular need of protection, such as children or elderly people, are present. In any case, only doors made of safety glass should be used - regardless of whether they are TSG or LSG. We offer many designs in both types of glass.
