Frosted Glass- SATINOVO

Translucent glass which is valued for its attractive appearance and smooth, satin-like appearance

SATINOVO is a unique frosted glass which is valued for its attractive appearance and smooth, satin-like appearance.

It is produced by acid-etching the surface of PLANICLEAR glass to produce the uniform matt frosted finish.

SATINOVO therefore offers a solution for multiple applications and markets where a feature design element is desired or simple vision control.


We offer frosted glass range in the following thickness:

  • 4mm
  • 6mm
  • 8mm
  • 10mm
  • 12mm
  • 15mm
  • 19mm

Its also available in a toughened version - which we call SECURIT SATINOVO.

SATINOVO itself cannot be laminated. However, Glassolutions produces STADIP laminated glass with a Diffusa (2165) interlayer which looks very similar to SATINOVO.


SATINOVO can be used in numerous interior design applications in both residential and commercial settings:

  • Doors
  • Shower screens and enclosures
  • Partitions and interior screens
  • Furniture, e.g. cupboard doors, shelves, tables
  • Wall cladding
  • Signage
  • Balustrades and guarding
  • Shopfitting – displays and counter tops.

It can also be used in external glazing, in windows and doors for example. We recommend that the etched surface of the glass faces either the inside of the sealed unit or the inside of the building if single glazed.


Benefits – end user / client

SATINOVO can be used to create stunning aesthetic effects, diffusing light and emitting a certain purity of colour and light.

In both interior screens and external glazing, SATINOVO provides privacy by obscuring unwanted attention and distractions, without compromising light levels thanks to its frosted appearance. It has similar light transmittance levels as the equivalent thickness of ordinary float glass.

Thanks to its satin-smooth surface, SATINOVO does not mark with dirt and finger prints for example, as readily as traditional etched and sandblasted glasses.

A low maintenance product, any surface marks that may eventually form are easily removed, facilitating installation and longevity of appearance. These properties are inherent to the glass – no additional surface treatments are required.

Benefits – glass processors

Can be cut and processed in exactly the same way as ordinary float glass.

Handling & Processing

SATINOVO can be cut and edgeworked like PLANICLEAR clear float glass. When cutting the glass, it is advisable to lay the pane non-treated face down.

Standards & Regulations

SATINOVO conforms to all the relevant standards in the various forms supplied by Glassolutions.
