Nothing leaves a more distinct impression on guests than a sophisticated window with elegant details. Stanek windows are custom designed, which allows you to create the perfect window for your home by adding details like privacy glass, safety glass and custom etched patterns. Check out our interactive designer glass selector below.
Our privacy glass allows light to filter in, while keeping a high level of privacy for your home. The glass is designed to distort the views from the window by applying light to the different surfaces of the glass. Our collection features privacy glass with obscurity ratings of 9 or greater. Options include Rain, Frosted Leaf or Pebble patterns. Privacy glass is ideal for bedrooms and bathrooms, or anywhere natural light is desired but the view is not.
Custom etched glass adds beauty and elegance to any window or patio door with custom etched patterns. Choose from eight unique etched patterns and three different etching styles. Patterns include Single Prairie, Double Prairie, Diamond, Florentine, Petal, Trellis, Marquis and Tudor. Each pattern can be etched using one of three etching styles (see below). The ability to match any pattern with an etching style gives the home a true custom look.
Once you've selected your groove (etched) glass pattern, you'll need to select an etching style. Choose from Polished, Frosted and Shadow. Etched glass is available in all Stanek insulated windows and patio doors.
When safety is a concern, our tempered safety glass is an ideal choice. Tempered glass is much stronger (more impact-resistant) than ordinary glass and it breaks differently too.
Standard glass will break at the area of impact, which may cause cracks or a hole in the window or possibly leave broken shards of glass still in the window. Standard glass usually breaks into large jagged shards that pose a substantial injury risk. Tempered glass is ideal and in many areas of the country, required for the following areas:
Tempered glass, on the other hand, will shatter completely, leaving no glass left in the window. When it shatters, it does so evenly and in small rounded pieces posing much less of an injury risk than ordinary glass.
