Pilkington texture glass provides obscuration and decoration

Information about Pilkington Texture Glass: A rolled patterned glass, one surface of which has a specific pattern or design impressed into the surface, Pilkington Texture Glass provides obscuration and decoration. All patterns are classified according to their obs-curation in relation to each other, the gradation being from 1 (least obscuring) to 5 (most obscuring). This design is unique among our patterns because it is produced using a different manufacturing method. All the others are formed from an embossed roller that takes the design to the edge of the glass in a uniform way. Pilkington Texture Glass Warwick™ is a random pattern that is added along the central portion of the pane and this has implications when cutting the glass down into finished sizes.
