Double Sided Acid-Etched Glass

Etching two faces of the glass provides many applications which can be used as much for residential as for commercial uses.

Some of the more common applications include:

–         Office enclosures

–         Interior Doors

–         Railings

–         Shelving

–         Furniture components

–         Interior partitions

–         Sealed units

–         And many more

Double sided acid-etched glass also has many advantages, such as:

–          It offers more opacity than one sided acid-etching, perfect for those looking for enhanced privacy or to use as spandrels in a building facade.

–          It provides a consistent finish on both sides                          

–          Glare is reduced on both sides of the glass

–         It offers flexibility with varied visual effects from different finishes: Opaque/Opaque, Velour/Velour and Satin/Satin

–         And finally, it offers the unique possibility of combining full surface etching on one side with an acid-etched pattern on the other

Going with the inspiration of the last advantage mentioned above, Bear Glass has come a long way from its first launch of  Walker  Nuance patterns in 2008.  In June 2012, Bear Glass was proud to announce the launch of six new patterns by Walker Glass , two of which featured double sided acid-etched glass, namely patterns 511 and 512.

Having a pattern on both sides of the glass is a brand new feature of the product line and provides a good cross section of  Nuance capabilities. This trait gives the impression the glass has greater depth.

Also available are custom designs, on either one face or two.  As an example, Bear Glass ran a prototype of a pattern etched on both sides which gives a sort of criss-cross effect.

This is very interesting in terms of the possibilities architects and designers will be able to create. The addition of this new feature, double sided acid-etched patterns, will stimulate the imagination of architects and designers and help them come up with custom patterns meeting their own design intent.

Patterned Glass By Bear Glass In Brooklyn NY

Patterned glass is a not-perfectly-smooth structure with different patterns impressed on it. The depth, size and shape of the patterns largely determine the magnitude and direction of reflection. Patterned glass or Decorative glass by Bear Glass usually transmits only slightly less light than clear glass. It can be used for a variety of applications like interior design and decorations, furniture, windows, street furniture etc.

Patterned glass by Bear Glass is made with a rolled glass process. All rolled patterned glass begins as a batch of materials, including silica sand, soda, and lime. These materials are melted together in a tank, and then the molten glass mixture is fed onto a machine slab. The glass flows under a refractory gate which controls glass volume and speed then moves between two counter-rotating, water-cooled rollers. One of these rollers is embossed, imprinting a distinct pattern onto the soft surface of the glass while the other roller is smooth.

The result is a piece of glass that is patterned and textured on one side, while smooth on the reverse. The distance between the two rollers determines the ultimate thickness of the glass. After it moves between the rollers, patterned glass is annealed or cooled slowly in order to remove any residual stresses. Rolled patterned glass can then be cut by the expert artisans of Bear Glass into standard sizes or cut into customized sizes for a specific customer application.

Some popular patterns, known as camphor glass, combined the use of clear glass with an acid-finished design.

Basically patterned glass has a pattern impressed on one side of the glass which prevents someone from seeing though it, for privacy. Pattern glass can also be ordered in various tints as well. A common application of this sort is when used in privacy walls to separate one room from another. Patterned glass is not-perfectly-smooth structure with different patterns impressed on it.
