Glass pet doors - give your pets their own ‘door key’!

If you’re tired of getting up and down to let your pets in and out, let them do it themselves!

Okay, it’s not a ‘key’ exactly, but a pet door is just as convenient. Pet doors help give your furry family members the freedom to come and go as they please, making life easier for everybody.

4 benefits of installing a pet door:

  1. Provides convenience – you don’t have to be there to keep opening and closing the door for your pet
  2. Reduces the chance of indoor accidents
  3. Good for the health of your pet as they don’t have to ‘hold on’ until you can let them out
  4. They can go outside whenever they need to, especially when you’re not home

If your pet door needs to be installed into a glass panel, it’s important to use a reputable glass services business. To meet Australian Standards, pet doors can only be installed into A-Grade toughened safety glass. The pet door is pre-cut through the glass prior to it being toughened and the whole pane of glass is replaced. Your existing glass won’t be strong enough to hold the pet door and withstand day-to-day wear and tear.



Shower screen rules

When it comes to glass, there are safety rules which must be followed, so there are a few things that you should know when choosing a shower screen. All shower screens must be made from grade-A safety glass with minimum thicknesses depending on the style of the screen. Always use a reputable glass services business to make sure you are getting a shower screen that is safe.



One bathroom upgrade that saves cleaning time

If you’re not happy with your bathroom and would like to update it, there is a simple fix. Simply upgrade your shower screen. This could transform the appearance of your bathroom and cut your cleaning time significantly.

The different styles of shower screen:

  • A frameless shower screen has no frame. The panes of glass are secured together with hardware and hinges. This is a sleek and stylish addition to any bathroom and virtually disappears into the background making any space look larger.
  • A semi-framed shower screen has more glass and only a framed perimeter, with a frameless door. Having less of a frame gives it a more streamlined look and they are easier to keep clean than a fully framed screen.
  • A fully framed shower screen has frame around every panel of glass in the shower, including the door.

6 benefits of upgrading to a frameless or semi-frameless shower screen

  • Your bathroom will be easier to clean, with less framing for grime and mildew to cling to.
  • These shower screens will look great in any style of bathroom.
  • You can achieve a modern, streamlined look without having to undertake a full renovation.
  • Frameless shower screens will add value to your home.
  • Your bathroom will appear more fresh, clean and spacious – perfect if you have a smaller bathroom.
  • It will be much better for your health with fewer areas for mould to grow.


The art of mirrors

Mirrors are a wonderful addition to any home - and they aren't just for checking out your reflection. They come in a variety of shapes and styles and can be used like a work of art, brightening the darkest of spaces and can also make a small room look much bigger. They are an ideal way to decorate your home.



Safety first

If your home was built before 1970, you should get any glass in your windows and doors checked as it may not be safe if broken. All glazing installed in your home needs to meet the relevant Australian Safety Standard which means windows and doors are required to be glazed with safety glass, making your home safe.



The environmentally-friendly option

Aluminium is 100% recyclable and reusable, which makes aluminium doors and windows an environmentally-friendly choice. Aluminium has a low carbon footprint, so if you ever need to replace your aluminium frames, the old ones can be recycled into other new items.



Home-open

If you want to make your home feel more spacious and open, but don't have the budget for a major renovation, you should think about installing aluminium sliding or bi-fold doors. When open, they remove the barrier between your indoors and outdoors, and when closed, allow more natural light into your home.



Fix that glass

If any of the glass windows and doors in your home are cracked or chipped it means they have been weakened and can be a potential hazard for you and your family. This is a problem at any time of year, but particularly in winter when there are strong winds, storms and even hail. Make sure you have any damaged glass fixed now to make your home safe.



Invisible shelves

Glass shelves have many benefits and are just as strong and durable as other shelving materials. Glass shelves blend seamlessly into any environment, create an airy feel and provide extra storage space while making a room appear larger as you can see all the way to the wall. They work particularly well in a bathroom as they won’t warp or rot. Glass shelving can also make light rooms appear brighter and can lift the heavy feel of a dark room. Glass needs to be handled with care, so always call your local glass services professionals. They will ensure a high-quality installation and make sure that everything meets Australian Standards.



A touch of glass

The job of a splashback is to protect your walls from splashes, stains and possible damage. Glass splashbacks create a modern and contemporary look and are the low-maintenance option for wall protection. They are strong, durable and as the colour is applied to the surface which goes against the wall, it will not fade or get scratched. Having a glass splashback also means no stained grout, cutting down on cleaning time – which is priceless. Talk to your local glass services expert about the best options for your kitchen or bathroom glass splashback.
