What is Reeded Glass?
Sometimes called Fluted glass, this is a textured stripe finish moulded into the glass surface. Multiple flutes are side-by-side with a common 1/2-inch or 1/4-inch spacing. The pattern bends light as it passes through the glass and this obscures your vision.
Why is Reeded glass texture so popular?
With the continued proliferation of interior and exterior design and television show coverage, we are seeing a growing demand for our retro and contemporary style designs of vinyl window film.
Lustalux LTD has 30 years of commercial window film supply and fit experience. We service most of the UK from our hubs in Lancashire, Manchester, Coventry, London and Falkirk.
The history of ribbed or reeded glass
Reeded glass has in recent years come back into vogue in both residential and commercial scenarios. Originally popular in buildings dating back to the 1930’s to provide privacy through glazed areas yet allowing a high level of light ingress.
Textured Glass Trends 2022
The popularity of this type of “retro” feel has soared in recent times creating a demand for reeded glass or our retrofitted reeded glass window films. Our adhesive film can be installed on existing glazing for mood creation, as reeded manifestation to make glass visible or purely to provide an element of privacy through glazed doors or screens and partitions.
Who makes Reeded Glass?
The glass effect is still being manufactured by firms such as Pilkington reeded glass but a cheaper alternative to replacing your glazing units is reeded acrylic or vinyl made by 3M and a selection of other quality assured Lustalux sources.
No need to replace the clear glass
The installation of retro fitted window film eliminates the potential down time and mess caused by replacing glass and can be professionally and quickly applied to any type of smooth glass.
