Modern Glass Fireplace Feature


Modern Glass ‘Fireplace’


Toughened glass is one of our favourite materials to use when creating any modern design – it just oozes a feeling of luxury and helps to create a contemporary looking product. Our latest project has just completed; a modern recessed glass fireplace.

Crackle Glass Modern Fireplace

The fireplace is constructed using 3 different types of toughened glass:

1)      The fireplace front fascia

The front panel of glass is constructed from 10mm clear toughened safety glass complete with a back painted black border. The black border creates the ‘fireplace’ effect that is seen on most modern fire systems.

2)      The cracked-ice rear panel

The striking effect of the whole design comes from the rear pane of crackle glass. The effect is formed by using a triple layer of laminated glass with the internal pane being broken to create the smashed rippling effect. When backlit with LEDs the cracked ice glass panel reflects light with a mesmerising glow.

3)      The crushed glass ‘lava’

The final piece of the fireplace puzzle is created with crushed glass which is spread over the base of the design. The underside of the crushed glass is again backlit with LEDs to help create a visual fire effect that reflects up through the crushed lava-effect particles.

Crackle Ice Glass

Crackle glass, or cracked ice glass as it is also known is created by laminating together 3 panes of toughened safety glass and then breaking the middle panel- The effect is a mesmerising finish which can be used in various applications throughout the home.
