Products

Sharda Glass is one of the UK’s leading glass manufacturers. We specialise in the production of structural and decorative glazing that allows innovation in form, creativity in finish and sustainability in function, making even the most complex construction projects a possibility. 

  • Structural Glass – Laminated and strengthened for contemporary building design.
  • Decorative Glass – Including coloured glass, printed glass, LCD switchable glass.
  • Safety Glass – Including fireproof glass and bulletproof glass
  • Sustainable Glass – Including energy efficient glass and solar control glass.

We work with architects, engineers and designers, consulting with them in the earliest stages of a building concept and providing valuable engineering input as the glass components for the project are confirmed and commissioned. The technological development and creative application of glass is where we excel. 


Take a look at some of our completed projects by visiting Sharda Glass online. There you can also find out more about the types of glass we can offer. If you would like to discuss a project with a member of our management team, please call us on 0208 587 2100. 


Curved Glass

Curved glass has become ubiquitous in contemporary building design, and Sharda has been one of its chief proponents, providing quality reinforced glazing to make the impossible possible. We can offer three main types of curve/bend:

  • Annealed – This involves applying heat to flat glass in order to soften it for bending to the shape of a pre-fabricated mould. Annealed bends can be used in single or double glazed applications where safety is not an issue. Holes, cut-outs and notches are all possible. 
  • Laminated – This involves edge taping two annealed bends together and then injecting or pouring a resin laminate between the glasses. Once cured, the bends are permanently laminated together for a safety glass that is deal for shop fronts and revolving doors, screens, partitions, canopies and cabinets. 
  • Toughened – Toughened curved glass is made using annealed glass that has been heated and then cooled rapidly, a process that introduces stress into the glass surface in order to strengthen it. Upon impact, toughened glass will break into small, blunt fragments to reduce the possibility of injury. 


Safety Glass - DuPont SentryGlas

DuPont SentryGlas is a laminated safety glass which is designed to resist breaking, and to break in such a way that minimises the risk of injury should it be unable to withstand the impact forces applied to it. It is made by sandwiching a sheet of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) between two pieces of tempered glass – this acts like a tape, keeping the glass in place upon breakage and preventing any sharp shards from falling.  Find out more by visiting Sharda Glass online.

Digital Print Glass

DuPont SentryGlas Expressions™ are a series of decorative glazings made with digitally printed interlayers. They allow you to incorporate any graphic design or photographic image within the glass for a stunning visual effect, and also enable the introduction of textures, patterns and wayfinding features. Expressions™ products meet ANZI Z97 specifications for safety. Find out more about the options available by visiting Sharda Glass online.

Bullet Proof Glass

Bullet proof glass is usually manufactured from polycarbonate thermoplastic or layers of laminated glass. Polycarbonate designs (typically 70-75mm thick) will usually consist of plastics sandwiched between layers of regular glass, while laminated glass designs (typically 100-120mm thick) are built from glass sheets which are bonded together with polyvinyl butyral, polyurethane or ethylene-vinyl acetate. Both methods give the appearance and clarity of standard glass but with effective protection against small arms fire. To find out more, visit Sharda Glass online or get in touch on 0208 587 2100.

Adaptive LCD Switchable Glass

Adaptive LCD Glass is an innovative privacy glazing that allows you to switch from ordinary clear glass to frosted glass at the touch of a button. It works by sending an electrical current over a polymer liquid-crystal film that’s sandwiched between two standard plates of glass. When the current is applied, the film becomes frosted; as soon as it is taken away, the whole glazing becomes clear. Adaptive LCD glass eliminates the need for privacy blinds – it’s great for home windows, bathrooms, shop fronts, meeting rooms and other such environments.

Double Glazed Windows

Producing bespoke double glazed glass units is one of our specialities. Using any combination of component glasses, we can manufacture sealed glazing units to meet the specific size and shape requirements of our customers. In sealing curved glass into units, we use a Dual Seal System: this is where butyl is applied to the spacer bar to provide a primary seal between the two component glass panels, and then a secondary seal applied to the outside of the panels to form an external barrier against water and condensation. Double glazed doors and windows in unit form can be made with a range of glasses, including:

  • Laminated and toughened glass
  • Patterned, wired, clear and tinted glass
  • Surface coated glass
  • Ceramic glass
  • Screen printed glass


Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is made with one or more interlayers of plastic (PVB) or resin. In the event of breakage, these interlayers hold the glass fragments together and provide resistance to the passage of persons or objects. This type of glazing is typically used in situations where continued resistance after breakage is essential, such as in shop-fronts, balconies, stair railings and roof glazing. You can find out more about laminated glass and its applications by visiting Sharda Glass online.

High Performance Solar Control

Solar control glasses are ideal for buildings requiring a higher level of thermal performance. The films used in the making of these glasses allow energy from the sun to enter the building whilst also reflecting any internally generated heat (from heating systems, lighting and building occupants) back into the building. The use of solar control glasses can significantly reduce a building’s running costs; they are an economical, sustainable solution for maintaining a comfortable internal temperature.

Vanceva Coloured Glass

Sharda can supply glass in 30 standard colours, including metallic silver. We are also able to mix colours to order, including sparkle and metallic effects (this includes all RAL, BS, Dulux and Farrow & Ball colours). Coloured glazing makes a great architectural feature in restaurants, pubs, shops, nightclubs, offices and other such environments – it can also be used for things like cupboard and drawer fronts in homes. 


We also supply coloured glass cladding, which provides a decorative and hygienic wall surface ideal for wet areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, changing rooms and swimming pools. 


Non-Reflective Glass

Non-reflective glass is a type of float glass with a specially-designed coating that reflects a very small percentage of light. It offers maximum transparency and optical clarity, ensuring optimum viewing at all times. This makes it ideal for applications where vision is important, such as in shop fronts, petrol station windows, air traffic control towers and panoramic restaurants. Non-reflective glass is also commonly used in high quality picture frames, display cabinets, television studios and machine control rooms. Find out more about the benefits of non-reflective glass by visiting Sharda Glass online.

Back Painted Glass

As well as coloured glass, Sharda can now offer back-painted glass. This enables you to choose a colour that exactly matches your own decor. Give us the colour code (any RAL, BS or Dulux reference) and we’ll do the rest. 


Back-painted glass is becoming ever more popular in domestic applications, particularly in kitchens and bathrooms where coloured splashbacks are required to meet an interior design scheme. 


Fire Rated Glass

Fire-rated glass is perfect for situations where fire-resistant floors and walls are needed but where light and space are also desired.  These glazings offer a transparent alternative to solid walling. They are available in various grades offering different levels of protection. (The fire resistance of glass is usually measured in defined time periods and in terms of integrity and insulation). Fire-rated glass can be used for doors, partitions, flooring and curtain walling. Too find out more about fire-rated glass and its applications, visit Sharda Glass online or simply get in touch on 0208 587 2100.

Double Glazed Units with Spacers

Double glazed units have two layers of glass with a gap of around 16mm between them. This gap is created by the introduction of warm edge spacers that contain little or no metal, improving the thermal efficiency of the window. Sometimes, double glazed units will be filled with gases like argon, xenon or krypton for even greater efficiency. 


The most efficient glass for double glazing is low emissivity (Low-E) glass, which often has an imperceptible coating of metal oxide on one of the internal panes. This coating allows the transmission of sunlight for warmth but prevents the escape of internally generated heat.  


Heated Glass

This is a special kind of laminated glass that incorporates low-profile electrical wires. It is made with two or more sheets of glass interlaid with one or more films of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). Electrically heated glass is ideal for any environment with high humidity or where temperature differentials may lead to condensation.

Heat Mirror Insulating Glass

Heat mirror glass is the most efficient glazing we offer. This three-layer system has two independent air spaces created by a suspended film between two glass panes. The film is transparent to light, but it reflects remote infra-red radiation and harmful UV light. It keeps out the sun’s rays in the summer when you want the room to stay cool, but keeps in heat during the winter when you want it to stay warm. Heat mirror glazing looks no different to other types of insulating glazing, yet it is more efficient and often much lighter. Other benefits include:

  • Prevents fading of interior furnishings
  • Solar shading reduces cooling costs
  • Service life of 25-30 years
  • Improved sound insulation
