What Are Glass Sheets?
Glass sheets are flat glass panels that come in a range of shapes, sizes and thicknesses to suit a variety of uses. They can be transparent or can be textured or patterned for privacy or aesthetic appeal.
How Are Glass Sheets Used?
Glass sheets are used for a wide range of purposes in both the home and office. They can be cut to measure for use in:
- Custom Window Louvers
- Shelving Systems
- Glass-Top Coffee Tables
- Dining Tables
How Are Glass Sheets Made?
Melted glass is poured into a molten tin bath. The bath is slowly cooled until the melted glass solidifies and is removed onto glass rollers. Glass sheets can also be strengthened during the manufacturing process with chemical additives.
Are Glass Sheets Safe?
Yes. Glass sheets can be tempered which makes them safer than regular glass. Rather than smashing in long, sharp shards, tempered glass is designed to shatter into small pieces that are less likely to cause serious injury.

What Is Insulated Glass?
Insulated glass is usually comprised of two to three panes of glass that are separated by a vacuum in order to increase its insulating properties. In some cases, gas can be inserted into the vacuum area to further boost its insulating power.
How Is Insulated Glass Used?
Insulated glass will have a significant impact on the comfort levels of your home by providing greater temperature control and reducing noise. Insulated glass can help reduce the amount of electricity you use on heating and cooling your home, and can help you enjoy the peace and quiet without outside distractions.
Can You Provide Custom Insulated Glass?
Koala Glass specialises in the installation of custom insulated glass. We can measure, cut and fit insulated glass to suit virtually any standard and non-standard window frame.
Is Insulated Glass Safe?
Yes. The construction of insulated glass makes it much more durable and difficult to break than regular sheet glass windows. The vacuum inside insulated glass windows acts as a shock absorber that provides greater resistance against breakages.
