Crackle glass is made by laminating 3 pieces of toughened glass together, whilst the middle piece of glass is shattered. This provides the “crackle” effect whilst maintaining safety, with no loose shards of glass to be found!
Not only does crackle glass look unique and adds to the aesthetic of any room or outdoor space, but it can also be a good way of providing safety and heat resistance. It is ideal for creating crackle glass splashbacks in the kitchen as well as worktops, table tops and balustrades.
Crackle glass has a great reflective quality, that makes it different to any other kind of glass on the market. It allows you to transform a dull and dreary space into one with an added luxury, high-end look and feel to complete any interior design.
Crackle glass is made with three individual pieces of glass, which means you have a choice of two plain pieces with a crackle middle layer, or a painted mirror backing with a plain and crackle middle layer. By doing this, you will enhance the strength of the colour, adding a reflective result.
Crackle glass is highly durable, and available in 19mm thickness in a range of colours. These include:
