Soundproof Glass By Bear Glass

 

A soundproof glass is a glass that prevents sound from penetrating from one side to the other. In most cases, those desiring soundproof glass are those who live near noisy environments, such as airports of busy roads. While glass, in various configurations, may do a good job of preventing sound from getting through, it should be noted that soundproof glass, at least from a general consumer standpoint, is all but impossible to acquire.

Sounds like this is exactly what you need!

There are a number of different ways to make glass soundproof. The first involves simply making the glass thicker. The thicker the glass is, the stiffer it becomes and, as a natural consequence, less prone to vibration. In such cases, the sound is naturally reduced. Another option is to insulate the glass with some other material, or perhaps just put an empty area in between two panes of glass.

To make soundproof glass completely capable of blocking all sound would be prohibitively expensive and likely not recommended for windows. The glass would need to be extremely thick and would be very heavy, perhaps overwhelming any material used in a typical window frame.

Do you hear what we are saying to you?

The most common place to find soundproof glass is a sound studio, where it is important for music and other types of recordings to have a quiet environment. However, even then the glass is not completely able to withstand all sounds.

For more information, please contact us. We look forward to working with you!

Anti-Reflective Glass…It’s the most amazing glass you’ll never see.

 Anti-Reflective Glass combines two proprietary pyrolytic surfaces in a single laminated glass to minimize visible light reflectance to less than 2 percent compared to clear glass which is 8 percent; this will allow more visible light to pass through.In addition to its anti-reflective/non-glaring properties, laminated Anti-Reflective Glass blocks more than 99 percent of transmitted UV to protect interiors and contents. At the same time, it also offers the traditional benefits of laminated glass, including enhanced security, improved safety, damage protection, and superior acoustic control. The result is a unique fabricated glass that combines the strength, security and sound reduction of laminated glass with the low reflectivity of a high-end specialty glass product.

An Idea To Decor Your Interior By Sandblasted Glass

Sandblasted glass is a kind of etched glass. In sandblasting process, a glass surface etched by a sandblaster machine. Sandblasted Glass is also known as Frosted Glass.

Sandblasting is a general term used to describe the act of propelling very fine bits of substance at high velocity to etch a surface. Sand used to be the most commonly used substance.

Sandblasting uses compressed air to blast fine sand or other very abrasive,high grit substances through a nozzle and at the object desired to be sandblasted. These abrasive substances rapidly discard the surface of the object leaving a clean surface.

Types Of Glass Etching :

There is not only one type of etch glass like acid etch glass but also sandblasted etching glass.The first one is etched by chemical,called as acid etch glass. The other is etching by sandblaster.

Which is the better between Acid Etched Glass and Sandblasted Glass?

Both acid-etched and sandblasted glass use abrasives to produce a frosted or non glossy glass look. Acid treatment is used to create acid-etched glass. While sandblasting is done with a high speed machine that blitz the glass panel with sand,walnut pods or other substances.

That depends on the end goal. Acid-etched glass produces a true frosted look and is more economical than sandblasting.

Sandblasting glass offers versatility in inventing design effects. First,householders can choose a level of glass cloudiness from light,medium or heavy. Also,sandblasting makes it possible to frost sections of a glass shower,such as creating privacy strips or archetype.

Application areas of sand blasted glass :

Sand-blasted glass can be used in numerous interior design applications in both residential and commercial structures. Some of uses are:
1.Glass panels for Front Doors : Frosted Glass or Sandblasted Glass is used as glass panels for front doors of your residence or work place.

Acid-etched Glass by Bear Glass

Etched glass mirror is a practical alternative to the look of stainless steel in the kitchen when used as a backsplash. Created by taking  high-quality acid-etched glass that has a durable, glare-absorbing permanent etched finish; and taking it through a making process so that it has the glow of real silver from behind.

Acid-etched glass is a beautiful look that can be tempered for extra toughness and resiliency to heat, making it work well behind cook tops and stoves. It is also easily cleaned of spatters and spills – a “magic eraser” cleans off everything from baked on spaghetti sauce to grease from the surface without harming the surface at all.

Acid-etched glass offers a look that appears darker or lighter, depending just on the lighting from the room as you can see from the images shown here. Each of them look so different, and intriguing, …just begging you to come closer and touch to find out what it is. By the way, fingerprints are also something acid etched mirror happily handles well – unlike so much stainless steel.
