For privacy, pure style or to allow more light into internal rooms, decorative glass gives you a whole range of attractive options. In fact, Pilkington gives you no fewer than 18 different patterned glass designs – from classic to contemporary, no-one offers a bigger choice.
The advantages of Pilkington Texture Glass are easy to see.

Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™
This design is unique amongst our patterns because it is produced using a different manufacturing method. All the others are formed from an embossed roller that takes the design to the edge of the glass in a uniform way. Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™ is a random pattern that is added along the central portion of the pane and this has implications when cutting the glass down into finished sizes.
It is possible that, if a pane is small enough, it could be cut with no evidence of the pattern at all. It is therefore important when cutting and optimising this glass that the appearance of the finished pane is considered so that the design is central to the pane and, where there are several panes to be glazed adjacent to each other, that the degree of design on each pane is similar.
None of our patterns are designed to have an orientation but care needs to be taken with adjacent panes that the pattern direction is maintained. There is a linear nature to Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™ and so householders and glaziers should be aware that there could be aesthetic implications when choosing this design. For the glass supplier the result may be that this pattern is less accommodating when cutting and may result in a greater proportion of selvedge from the original glass plate.
Important note: Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™ can have a coarse and uneven surface finish, therefore its suitability for a specific application should be assessed prior to purchase. The patterned surface should be located such that the incidence of human touch is minimised.
Please allow for these considerations when choosing and using Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™.
