Gray Grey Float Glass for interior applications

Sometimes called “smoke” glass or even “black” glass, it is a glass with a uniform color of gray throughout. Several float glass manufacturers make a gray tinted glass in various thicknesses, and the tint can vary. There are even various depths to the gray – some are darker than others. The color also becomes darker the thicker the glass used, and multiple layers (as shown above) creates more depth. Gray (Grey) tinted glass can be fabricated, tempered, drilled and shaped like regular clear glass, but the color allows it to add an air of mystery and privacy to the space.
