- Q. What colours are available?
A. Graphic Glass offers a comprehensive range of over 700 colours, including flat opaque, metallic, pearls and sparkle finishes. We also offer a colour matching service.
- Q. Can samples be viewed?
A. Yes, visit our showroom at 11A Ra Ora Drive, East Tamaki, Auckland, or contact our offices and request a colour of choice from a popular fan deck and we will dispatch a suitable colour as soon as possible. If you prefer to stop in at the Home Ideas Centre on The Strand, Parnell, you will also find our most popular standard colours available.
- Q. What type of Glass is used?
A. The Graphic Glass coating system can be applied to virtually any type of glass. Generally, for wall lining applications such as splash backs, we would use 5mm Clear Float (annealed or toughened). However, in some instances we may advise the use of Diamante “low-iron” glass in order to get particular accuracy with a light colour.
- Q. How is Graphic Glass fixed to the wall?
A. Our panels can be fixed with concealed fixings such as adhesives and tapes, or by a wide range of attractive stainless steel mechanical fixings, depending on your requirements.
- Q. How does one obtain a price for Graphic Glass?
A. Due to the complexity of pricing with so many variables, the best solution is to simply fax our office with a sketch showing dimensions and special requirements such as edgework, power-points and installation etc and we will return a firm quote to your office immediately.
- Q. Is Graphic Glass backed up with a warranty?
A. Yes, we offer a 10-year warrantee against the coatings delaminating from the glass.
- Q. What size panels can be produced?
A. Our process is limited by the size of glass stock sheets and the furnace dimensions where toughened glass is required. For toughened glass, 3600mm is the longest currently available.
- Q. How are powerpoints dealt with?
A. A rectangular cutout is made in the glass slightly smaller than the size of the plastic cover allowing the electrical component to screw up against the glass thus covering the edges of the cutout. Power points need to be positioned at least 50mm from the edge of the glass to allow for toughening.
