In sandblasting glass, a
special type of sand is held in a funnel like holder where a blast of
air is forced through it to create a miniature sandstorm. Wherever the
glass is not protected, it becomes "Etched"
as the sand repeatedly strikes abrades and "Pits" the surface. When the
sand is blown against the glass, masking tape protects areas that are to
stay smooth and allows the sand to pit the glass through the stencil
When the stencil is removed
the etched design remains. Any glass can be sandblasted to create
particular effects. Very often this technique is utilized to create
small signage or trademarks or to decorate mirrors and lamps but the
master choice is the door panel, the window, the room divider.
Glass bricks have long been
an architectural feature in buildings of all sizes and types, moving in
recent years from their utilitarian
beginnings in commercial and industrial building into widespread
popularity in residential construction. While glass bricks visually
enhance most structures, they also offer excellent Light Trans
mission, thermal Insulation, Sound Insulation, good Security, fire
Protection and allow natural light to enter while still preserving
Glass bricks are actually
very strong. The safety aspect depends on detailing and the stiffening
of the wall. Glass bricks are laid one on top of the other (called laid
stack bond) and not overlaid as in ordinary brick, so joint
reinforcement is always necessary.
Running them into cross
walls, using steel piers or even buttresses stiffens the walls. The
architectural design of the building is essential and you would need to
be familiar with how glass bricks behave. Waterproofing is also
important. This is not a job for an amateur. A square steel grid as can
be seen when used in footpaths, typically supports glass bricks used in
floorings. They have been used as basement lighting for years. They are
aesthetically pleasing if you have a room below and you want to let more
light in. The effect is trendy and can be used to good effect in
restaurants. Exiting visual effects and the required transparency can be
achieved by selecting the correct pattern with the required
specifications for your application.
