It is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal. It’s widely applied in many segments of our lives for windows, mirrors in different domestic, commercial and automotive applications.
The method of float glass production gives the sheet thickness and an extremely flat surface. The majority of modern windows and glass doors are produced from float glass. Due to its versatility and durability, float glass gained popularity right at once after the 1950s when it was invented.
Due to its astonishing property which results from its forming process, this type of glass is used in many applications in a broad range of sizes and thicknesses to create different products and exceed clients’ expectations.
- Excellent color consistency for use on repeat projects
- Gives a wide range of light transmission
- Float glass can be laminated or painted in order to improve strength, safety or aesthetic needs
- Fits for a wide range of finished products and applications

For the time being, float glass is the most broadly used form of glass in consumer products, including commercial ones. Thanks to high quality with absence of additional polishing needed and its structural flexibility during production, a float glass can be easily bent and shaped into almost any form (when in a syrupy and heated state).
It makes float glass perfect for a bunch of different applications:
- furniture (tables, shelves and other)
- insulated glass
- doors and windows
- automotive glass (mirrors, windshields and other)
- architectural glazing
Moreover, there are also some specialized glass, for instance, frosted glass, soundproof glass and others which consists of standard float glass that has been further processed.
