All our glass - In Detail

Float Glass

Float glass gets its name from the manufacturing process used to make it. Molten glass is 'floated' onto a bed of tin to ensure a glass sheet is flat and distortion free. Float glass is suitable for many standard applications where safety glass is not required. Float glass is also most commonly used for windows that are above 800mm from the floor. The 800mm requirement is a government set standard for safety reasons.

Toughened Glass

Toughened glass is float glass that has been through a rigorous heating & cooling procedure, this procedure makes toughened glass 5x stronger than float glass. It is commonly used for glazed doors, low level windows (below 800mm) tabletops and glass shelving etc. If broken, toughened glass will shatter into hundreds of tiny pieces that do not have the jagged sharp edges associated with broken float glass. It is important to remember that once glass has been through the toughening process, it is impossible to cut or alter again as the glass will shatter if broken or cut in anyway.

Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is quite literally 2 sheets of glass that are "laminated" together using a special safety film. This safety film is designed to hold the fragments in place if the glass is broken, making it harder to break through. It is this safety film that creates the extra safety and extra security required when using laminated glass. Commonly used in shop windows, offices, schools, hospitals and community doors etc. A very popular choice for that extra safety and security.

Wired Glass

Wired glass is available in clear or obscured. As its name suggests it has a wire mesh in the centre of the glass which helps give it strength. Originally developed as a cheap fire resistant glass, it is now widely used for glass roofing etc. Commonly seen in community fire doors that require glazing but still need to retain its fire-proofing properties.

Picture Glass

Picture glass is a 2mm non-reflective glass which helps prevent reflections and glares from spoiling your pictures and photographs. It's high transparency but low reflective properties reduce glares & reflections. Being only 2mm it is also very light, making it ideal for hanging pictures.

Greenhouse Glass

Greenhouse glass is a budget range of glass which is highly suited to horticultural applications. It is 3mm thick as per standard greenhouse requirements. Milton Glass carry this in stock and also pre-cut in the standard sizes. If you require different sizes our staff will happily cut it to size for you.

K Glass

K Glass is a low emissivity coated glass which helps reduce heat loss through your glazed areas. This specialist coating is a very poor heat conductor which helps prevent heat being transferred outside, saving on fuel and energy costs. K Glass is available in float, toughened or laminated glass and easily helps to meet and exceed the requirements of building regulations concerning energy efficiency.

Optiwhite™ Glass

Optiwhite™ Glass is a specially developed float glass which displays none of the slight green tint apparent in most standard 'clear' glass, making it suitable for a wide range of applications from commercial facades to UV bonded glass furniture. Our image shows the colour difference between standard glass and Optiwhite™ glass. Available as float, toughened or laminated in thicknesses up to 19mm.

Activ™ Self Cleaning Glass

The unique dual-action of the Activ™ coating uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass free from organic dirt, giving you not only the practical benefit of less cleaning, but also clearer, better-looking windows. It can be used in almost any external domestic application. The unique coating is not worn away or rubbed off and lasts the lifetime of the glazing itself. It is an ideal choice for those hard to clean places.

Multi Laminated Glass ("Anti Bandit Glass")

Multi Laminated Glass is a specialist security product. The multi-layered laminate resists penetration, the glass may break but the interlayers retain overall integrity and continues to act as an effective barrier. Protects against break-ins by preventing or slowing down burglary attempts and withstands repeated blows from heavy objects such as bricks, hammers, crowbars and similar hand held heavy objects. Typical applications include buildings, houses or shops displaying valuable goods, banks, building societies, post offices, security glazing in hospitals and prisons, museum display cases etc.

Fire Resistant Glass

A range of Fire Resistant Glass types are available offering increasing levels of protection, which is measured in defined time periods (30, 60, 90, 120 and 180 minutes). It should be noted that Fire Resistant Glass must always be specified as part of a tested and approved glazing system and installation should be carried out by specialists in order to ensure that the expected fire performance is achieved should it be called upon.

Heat Soaked Toughened Glass

Toughened Glass can be 'heat soaked' to provide a superior quality, making the pane much less susceptible to fracture. It has greater resistance to mechanical shocks and greater resistance to thermal stresses. With its superior strength, it is commonly used in heavy duty applications.

Bullet Resistant Glass

Bullet Resistant Glass consists of multiple layers of thinner glass, less than 12mm, separated by thin layers (0.38mm) of interlayer. Bullet resistant laminates consist of multiple pieces of glass with a polycarbonate spall plate bonded together by interlayers of polyvinyl butyral or aliphatic urethane. These laminates can resist bullet penetration from a variety of small arms and rifles. This monolithic construction provides an invisible protection.
