What is Rolled Glass?
Rolled glass is manufactured by pouring glass from the furnace into a series of rollers. It is then shaped to the desired thickness, annealed and cut to size. The two basic types of rolled glass are patterned and wired. Patterned glass is also called figured glass, obscure glass, and decorative glass. It is available in thicknesses from 1/8" to 3/8".
How Is Patterned Glass Made?
Patterned glass is made by passing it through rollers that have patterns on them. The pattern is transferred to one or both sides of the glass. Each manufacturer of patterned glass has unique patterns. Patterned glass can be used for either decoration or privacy. The glass is typically whiter in color than clear glass. Depending on its use, it can be laminated to use for safety glass as well.
