What is Float glass?
Float glass is ‘glass at its simplest form’, it is colourless, distortion free and the most basic glass on the market
Why is float glass used?
In our opinion there are no real benefits of using this form of glass it is the starting point glass that is then processed to create other forms of practical glass for applications. This glass is processed to create laminated, toughened and coated glass. We do not advise the use of float glass around the house for safety reasons. In the event of an accident we would always sell the form of glass that is fit for purpose. It can be found in glass doors, splashbacks and windows – but these all need to be processed to be used practically and safely.
