There are many kinds of glass available. When looking for glass there are so many different kinds available, that you may not even know exactly what you need. Here is a short list of types of glass, options, and products that are available to you:

Types:

 * Safety Glass. This glass is toughed so that it is less likely to splinter when broken.

 * Back Painted Glass. This is a clear glass that is painted from the back. This is an alternative to other surfacing materials like tiles and laminates.

 * Toughened Glass. This glass is four times stronger than “normal” glass. When broken, this glass fractures into small pieces, instead of large, sharp, shards.

 * Greenhouse Glass. This glass is used to build greenhouses. It can help to regulate the required climatic conditions for plants to grow.

 * Shower Screen Glass. This is the glass that is used for shower doors. It can come in all different styles to help fit your home.

 * Obscured Glass. There are many different styles of obscured glass. This glass has a pattern embedded on the surface so that it is not easily seen through. Many times, this type of glass is used on shower doors.

 * Conservatories. Much like greenhouse glass, this is also very self-explanatory. Conservatory glass can also fall into the same category as greenhouse glass.
