One of the best things about glass is its versatility. If you are an architect, designer, engineer, or contractor, you already know the different ways glass is used to spruce up a project. From being used as bathroom doors and storefronts to partitions and privacy panels, the applications of glass are many.

This frosted look is achieved through a technique known as glass sandblasting. All Team Glass & Mirror Ltd. offers top-notch sandblasting services.

3 Applications of Glass Sandblasting


Decorative Glass

One of the most common applications of glass sandblasting is to etch creative designs on glass panels. Sandblasting is a process in which a specialized tool is used to shoot sand onto glass at high speed. The nozzle through which the sand is pushed out is tiny. Combine this with compressed air and the pressure becomes strong enough to carve designs on the glass surface. The use of CNC technology ensures that the design is carved with precision and accuracy.


Privacy Screens

Privacy is highly sought after in offices and conference rooms to homes and stores. It can be easily achieved with the help of glass sandblasting. Frosted or textured glass created through sandblasting allows light to pass through while maintaining a level of opacity, making it ideal for partitions in offices or homes where privacy is needed without sacrificing natural light.


Architectural Elements

Glass sandblasting is widely used to custom-create architectural elements like glass balustrades, floors, lighting fixtures, and staircases. Beyond aesthetics, glass sandblasting also serves practical purposes like improving safety. Sandblasted glass surfaces reduce glare and reflections, making them ideal for use in areas where visibility is crucial to prevent accidents.
