Translucent glass that glows from within.
Acid-etched glass has a smooth, satin-like decorative surface that scatters light, transforming transparent float glass into translucent glass that seems to glow from within. Choose the amount of light you bring into the space with different levels of translucency.
Beauty, light and privacy in one elegant solution
Acid-etched glass can add tactile and visual interest to glass, offering privacy while still welcoming abundant light. Architects and designers can use acid-etched glass to create striking and distinctive environments that seem to glow from within. Acid-etched glass is often used in interior applications such as doors, walls, railings, retail displays, elevators, escalators, floors, stairs, table tops and other surfaces.
Manufactured using a proprietary acid-etching process, Guardian SatinDeco® glass has a satin-smooth, translucent finish that obscures the view through the glass while maintaining a high level of light transmittance. Uniform etching means the glass provides consistent privacy and an extra-smooth finish that is resistant to fingerprints and easy to maintain.
Guardian SatinDeco® Double Sided is acid-etched on both sides of the glass. Guardian SatinDeco® Light allows for the maximum amount of light through the glass while reducing glare thanks to its modified surface. Guardian SatinDeco® Laminated allows colours and performance features such as security or sound control to be added to the glass.
