Where Can It Be Used

Wormy chicken wire glass is a prime example of how form and function intercept. The internal framing of the chicken wire adds resilience to the glass, as well as an industrial edge. The ornate texture of the glass balances this out, and adds elegance to the overall effect.

Chicken wire glass is also popular for use in modern homes because of its safety features. It is favored as a fire safe material, because the chicken wire will hold the glass together in the event of a fire and prevent it from spreading. The chicken wire and thick glass are also less likely to shatter in the event that the glass breaks.

Wormy chicken wire glass is also effective at keeping UV rays out of a room. This is a major benefit for home-owners who want to stop their fabrics and books from discoloration from the sun.

It’s also effective at providing sound insulation, thus making it an effective choice for busy homes and offices. It can add character and privacy to dining areas in restaurants and stores.
