Tinted Glass

Entry level solar control glass.


Tinted or toned glass provides a greater degree of solar control when compared to single clear glass. Tinted glass works by absorbing the sun’s direct heat energy (like a dark coloured shirt on a warm day) with re-radiation and convection through air movement drawing away the heat build-up in the glass.

  • Solar control function by reducing the sun’s direct heat energy through the glass;
  • Reduces glare and improves daytime privacy;
  • Tint or tone is an integral part of the glass and cannot be removed.

Thermal Breakage – the thicker the tinted glass, the darker the appearance and colour becomes. As the thickness increases, the glass absorbs more heat and as a result can be prone to thermal breakage if glazed in annealed float. Toughening or heat strengthening will prevent these breakages.

Glass edges – before glazing, annealed float glass edges must be ’good’ straight and clean cut with minimal defects. Under no circumstances should glass be glazed with damaged edges.

  • Select either Grey, Dark Grey, SuperGrey™, Green, Dark Blue or Bronze Glass;
  • Select appropriate thickness and process;
  • Single or IGU and either Toughened, Toughened Heat Soaked, Heat Strengthened, Laminated or Annealed.
  • All glass to be selected and installed in accordance but not exclusively to the following Australian Standards;
