Interior design ideas – our service

Glass is a highly practical choice for public, civic and commercial spaces, and recent advances in technology have pushed its design possibilities into exciting new areas. From high-resolution digital printing to metallic finishes, innovative techniques have made glass wall coverings newly versatile, with a wealth of stunning design options available.

We work with interior designers, architects and fit-out companies on a wide variety of projects around the UK, from office, store and restaurant refurbishments to the building and renovation of luxury hotels, universities, airports, leisure complexes and hospitals.

We are renowned for our quick and reliable service, fast turnaround times, excellent client care, and our near perfect first-time installation rate. We often work on complex, tightly scheduled building projects and are used to coordinating with other trades to promote a smooth and stress-free experience. We understand that things don’t always go to plan, and will be as accommodating as we possibly can when such circumstances arise.

All our panels are made to measure, and to extremely tight tolerances, so you can be sure of a beautiful fit and a highly professional-looking finish. However large or awkward your space, we can make the panels you require, and adjust the design as necessary.

Our products

Pin-sharp images, logos and text can be printed onto large glass panels to create striking and inspiring wall coverings, while metallic paint, hand-applied with skill to a richly coloured background, can achieve the effect of luxurious natural stone. Patinated metal, intricate tiling, wood or brick finishes can be printed onto glass with stunning results, while tinted or antiqued mirrored glass offers a glamorous option. Endlessly adaptable, glass wall coverings can fit in with an infinite number of interior design ideas.

We have an extensive range of standard products, but also work with clients to produce bespoke shades and finishes. From colour matching to pattern design to finding the perfect image, we will help you create whatever you have in mind. Our wall panels can be minimal and understated, or theatrical and dramatic. They can tie the look of a room together, brand the space, or produce a certain mood or atmosphere. We keep up with the latest interior design ideas to ensure that we meet our clients’ needs, we experiment with new techniques, and regularly add innovative products to our lines.

Despite the high-end finish and luxury look that glass achieves, it remains extremely practical. Nearly all our glass is toughened, making it impact, scratch and heat resistant, and ensuring that it meets the safety standards for public spaces. Hardwearing and durable, it is impervious to water and many corrosive chemicals, and can be used on the outside of buildings as well as their interiors. Glass is particularly popular in busy areas because it is hygienic and easy to clean – with no specialist products, techniques or services required – and needs very little on-going maintenance, making it extremely cost-effective in the long run.

How it works

Our glass panels can been ordered for supply only, but commercial projects often require our survey and installation service. Our expert fitters will visit the site to measure the wall space, usually with 48 hours of a request, and will return within 7 to 10 working days to install the panels. Larger, more complex jobs may take longer and we will let you know if this is the case. The position of cut-outs, holes and notches for fixtures and fittings must be in place before we measure, as these must be made prior to the toughening process.

Once installed, panels should look as good as new for many years. However, for total peace of mind, we offer 10-year product and installation guarantees.
