What are some glass styles for shelving?

The theme and color scheme of your room determine the most appropriate glass shelving style. To make it easier for each customer to find the perfect shelves for a particular project, ABC brings you choices when it comes to the appearance of the glass used for your shelving system. Possibilities include –

  • Clear glass
  • Acid etched glass (frosted)
  • Patterned glass (textured surface)

What types of glass are used for shelving?

Standard annealed glass is often used for shelving, but ABC Glass and Mirror, Inc. understands that some situations require a more durable material. This is why we also offer two options for shelves in higher-risk areas –

  • Tempered glass – This glass has been heated and then cooled, a process which gives it enhanced integrity and alters the way it reacts if a fracture does occur. The likelihood of the shelves being broken is thus significantly reduced. If a tempered glass shelf should be damaged, the glass will divide into small chunks that are easier to clean and safer to deal with than normal shards.
  • Laminated glass – Glass of this kind looks about the same as any other glass, but it is really composed of three layers: two layers of glass with vinyl in the middle. Both glass layers are attached to the vinyl. On a practical level, what this means is that the glass will remain stuck to the vinyl even if it is fractured.

What options are available for mounting glass shelving?

ABC can install the glass shelving in your home in a few different ways. When it comes to mounting shelves on walls, there are a variety of metal and plastic systems we can use. We take care to use mounting choices that will keep your shelves stable and provide the necessary support. Metal components are offered in select finishes such as Satin Chrome, Satin Aluminum, Gold, Brushed Nickel, and White. When we put glass shelves in a cabinet, we typically install them on the apparatus already present inside the cabinet.
