Our Obscure Glass is an ideal solution to maintain your privacy without sacrificing natural light. It cleverly blurs out details while subtly allowing light to permeate. This makes it perfect for places where privacy is crucial, yet brightness is desired like bathrooms, offices, or partition walls.
At Affinity Windows, our Obscure Glass presents an economical solution for those seeking to add an artistic touch to their spaces without being exorbitant in price. Obscure Glass, with its stunning array of patterns and textures, proves that high style doesn’t always have to be associated at a higher cost.
Obscured Glass May Reduce Light Levels
Obscure Glass is available in a wide array of colours and tones, each offering a different level of translucency.
The colour and tone you select can significantly affect the amount of light that filters through the glass.
Richer, darker shades may create a dramatic ambience, but they may also noticeably reduce the light levels in the room.
In contrast, lighter hues offer a higher level of brightness while still ensuring the desired privacy.
5mm & 6mm Glass
Our Obscure Glass comes in 5mm and 6mm variants.

Can Be Toughened or Laminated to Grade A Safety Glass
An integral feature of our Obscure Glass range is the ability to transform it into Grade A Safety Glass. This pivotal enhancement can be achieved through two distinct processes, each offering a unique set of benefits. You can opt for our toughened glass, which is heat-treated to be up to five times stronger than ordinary glass.
Alternatively, explore our laminated Obscure Glass, which consists of two glass layers pressed up against an interlayer. This construction ensures that, even if the glass is broken, the fragments stay adhered to the interlayer, preventing potential injuries and maintaining a level of security until replacement.
