When compared to popular building materials like wood and steel, glass is more sustainable due to its 100% recyclability. It lessens the conditions of pollution caused by the commercialisation of artificial and synthesized materials.

Contrary to popular belief, glass is less toxic and it can also contribute to your health and well-being. Many homeowners take pride in their home’s unique design features, which are only possible with glass as the primary material.

Generally, you’ll see glass in homes as an insulating material for the windows and façade of the property, but there are other beneficial applications for this renewable material.

United Glass is your partner when it comes to innovative glaziers in Auckland. They are an NZ-owned and operated glass company focusing on noise reduction, temperature regulation, safety, security and elegant interior designing.

Their services include the following:

Frameless Showers — a bathroom enclosure that works best for in-line showers, custom showers, square showers, corner showers and bath screens. Their frameless glass provides a modern, sleek and versatile look to the bathroom.

Mirrors — functional mirrors that add to the design of the home with light-enhancing properties. They provide both templated and customised cuts to fit any intended area of installation.

Balustrades — frosted and clear glass railings for safety and added aesthetics. All of their balustrades are made from semi to full-framed toughened/laminated safety glass, which is engineered not to crumble to pieces in case of breakage.

Splashbacks — exudes elegance in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry areas. Their glass splashbacks cover large areas and odd shapes in your home or business.
