Q: What colours or effect can I have?
A: We have an extensive selection of coloured glass finishes with effects such as metallic and Pearl shimmer. We can also colour match any paint chip or object to achieve the colour that you would like.
Q: Is our glass transparent or opaque?
A: Our coloured glass is completely opaque therefore you don’t see any patches on the wall through the glass.
Q: What condition do my walls have to be in for installation?
A: We can install our coloured glass on most surfaces that are reasonably level with no hi spots sticking out; this includes walls made from rendered, plaster, villa board, and repaired walls etc.
Q: Is Polytech coloured and Mirratech Mirror glass safe?

Q: Can I have power points or light switch’s in the glass?
A: Yes! This is no problem; as this is taken into account when we measure to allow for cutouts in the glass, ensure these are all fitted in walls prior to check measuring.
