Why is clear glass green?
The green tint of glass is from the iron used in its manufacturing. The less iron use, the less green tint.
What if I have an old mirror? Can this be reinstalled or reused for a new project?
An old and new mirror, side by side, is going to be obvious. The old mirror will not be as bright-looking as the new one. It is more dull. If you still want to use your old mirror, it is best as a stand-alone, or used alongside other older mirrors.
Why are some of my mirrors black around the edges?
When your mirror turns black, it might be a reaction to contaminants, such as moisture, and cleaning agents that contain ammonia. Mirrors have copper sulfate and silver nitrate in its coating. These elements react to oxidation.
All mirrors will eventually react to oxidation. You can delay this and maintain the looks by careful cleaning. Be conscious of the ingredients of your cleaning agent.
Can I remove mirrors manually when I don’t want it anymore?
Most mirrors are held using glue. When you remove your mirror manually, you might be left with some residual glue and some wall damage.
When do you measure shower enclosures for bathroom remodels?
Typically, we measure your shower enclosure after tiling is completed and sills have been installed. This is necessary for accurate measurement. In many cases, shower doors are installed last in a bathroom remodel.
What are the benefits in a glass splashback?
A glass splashback is a way to upgrade the look and durability of your kitchen, bathroom, restaurant or bar. A splashback gives your space a seamless easy-to-clean surface. Since it’s painted on the reverse side, it gives it a striking eye-catching appearance.

Our glass splashback is often made from 6mm thick toughened safety glass that adheres to required building standards in Australia.
