Other shop front glass options

Vinyl, signage and decoration

We know that a lot of the glass on shop front windows and doors have signage relating to the business such as the company logo. Or restaurants may have a privacy film for customers who are sat next to a window. A new window without these would look out of place on your business premises, especially if other windows that were not damaged have this signage. Our glaziers can apply this vinyl once the new glass has been fitted. Ask our sales team for more details.

Film glass

There are different types of film that can be attached to the glass on your shop front. A UV film is placed on the inside of shop window glass to help to stop harmful rays from the sun from damaging products near the shop window. Alternatively, a silver or bronze reflective film can be applied. This offers both privacy and heat reduction within the premises. Two other films can be applied, security film and bomb blast film. If this is of interest to you, please contact our team to see how they can help.

Laminated glass

When laminated glass is broken, the glass holds in place thanks to its integrated safety film, rather than shards like float glass. This reduces the risk of injury, meaning this glass is preferred for keeping passers-by safe. Laminated safety glass is also more resistant to impact than standard float glass and is therefore used in critical areas such as doors and public-facing buildings.
