Glass Countertops

Für Haltbarkeit, Wartungsfreundlichkeit und schlanke Raffinesse schlägt nichts die vielen Vorteile von Glas.

Als langjähriger Favorit für Schreibtisch- und Tischplatten erfreut sich das Glas als Arbeitsfläche immer größerer Beliebtheit. Und mit seiner schlichten Eleganz kann es fast jede Art von Wohnkultur ergänzen.

Glas, das frei gelassen wird, passt zu jedem Farbschema, oder eine Seite kann gemalt werden, um mit der vorherrschenden Farbe eines Raums übereinzustimmen oder mit ihr zu kontrastieren. Das Ätzen oder Sandstrahlen, Krümmen oder Abfasen der Kanten wird der Anwendung ebenfalls ein visuelles Interesse verleihen.

Glas wird im Allgemeinen in rechteckigen Platten von 1/4 bis 1 Zoll Dicke hergestellt. Handwerkliches Glas ist hand- und maßgefertigt. Während der Installation kann Glas leicht zugeschnitten werden, um sich an jede Konfiguration anzupassen.

Obwohl Glas mit einem ausreichend großen Aufprall abplatzen oder sogar brechen kann, ist es vor Hitze und Flecken unempfindlich, was es sowohl für Küchen als auch für Bäder zu einer guten Wahl macht. Es kann jedoch kratzen, und es ist schwierig, Fingerabdrücke frei zu halten, die selbst saubere Hände hinterlassen können. Darüber hinaus kann das auf der Oberfläche verbliebene Restwasser permanente Wasserflecken hinterlassen, auch wenn das Beseitigen von Verschmutzungen einfach ist.
