Glass Etching

Types of Etched Privacy Glass

Decorative etched glass and specialty installations can add functionality that few alternative graphics and signage options can. By blending form and function, etched glass adds a bit of decor and practicality to a space — detailed glass etchings can be used as a design element or to help maintain the appropriate levels of privacy and natural lighting.

Etched privacy glass is often found in a variety of styles depending on personal tastes and performance needs, from frosted designs to architectural glass to decorative window designs and room partitions.

These glass etchings can be customized with specific films and finishing touches according to your expectations. At SpeedPro Chicago Loop, we offer the following premium etched glass options:

  • Films: Glass films are versatile decorative adhesives that can be crafted with unique, personal designs. Create films that highlight your specific brand, or find fun and distinctive patterns that add a flare to your space.
  • Frosted: Frosted glass is typically used as a tool to obscure views from either side of a glass pane. Use frosting techniques for architectural signage or as a full or partial design on glass walls and windows.
  • Tinted: Commonly used for outdoor glass applications to help create a more comfortable feel as well as protect against ultra-violet damages and reduce air transference, tinting can also be used as an attractive finish on indoor glass surfaces. Tinting does not fade or change over time and is a stylish fixture on decks, patios and rooftops.
  • Reflective: Also known as a one-way mirror, reflective glass — commonly used as an exterior product — can create a contemporary, elegant look for your space.
  • Satin: Satin glass finishes are one of our most popular privacy options. Their high opacity can easily obscure shapes and images behind the glass surface while maintaining a stunning appearance.

Uses for Custom Glass Etching

In addition to using custom glass etching in an office, you can incorporate it into a range of other venues, such as:

  • Retail stores: Glass etching designs can make your space look more upscale. Use them in dressing rooms or as partitions between different sections of the store.
  • Event venues: Add elegance to your event venue with glass etching panels.
  • Storefronts: Use glass etching for your logo and store name.
  • Art studios: Show an artistic flair with glass etching on your studio’s entrance and entryway.
  • Restaurants: Use glass etching partitions to give diners privacy.
  • Hotels: Set up glass etching partitions in the lobby to separate check-in from other areas, such as where guests can watch TV or log onto a computer.
  • Museums: Introduce exhibits with customized etched glass signs.

No matter your specific application, we can provide architectural films with a range of light transmission levels based on your preferences.
