For a number of reasons, Glassic Doors may not be suitable to be used as end panels, especially fridge panels. End panels could be manufactured from Decorative MDF, vinyl, acrylic or 2 pack.
We offer a wide range of drilling options for hinges, drawers, etc.

Final installed painted doors may appear to vary from the colour selected.
The usual causes are: the colour is viewed through the glass, position, lighting, competing colours, glass type and processing conditions.
Due to differing thickness of glass, differences in reflective surfaces and the variance of cabinet materials to glass, we can not guarantee an exact colour match to other materials and other glass products.
We will only guarantee a match to our samples – no other claims based on colour variation will be accepted. These samples comprise those in our trade partner showrooms or requested at the time of ordering.
OUR GLASS PRODUCTION INSPECTION GUIDELINES
Glass is to be inspected at an angle perpendicular [90 degrees] to the surface and viewed under natural light i.e. not in direct sunlight or under bright lighting. Clear or translucent glass is to be inspected from a viewing distance of 1.5 metres looking through the glass to a point 1 metre behind the glass.
The general purpose of glass is to be looked through – not at. The above applies to mirrors in as much as mirrors are designed to show a reflection – not focusing on the surface.
Seeds, bubbles and spots smaller than 1 mm are acceptable in any number. Those inclusions that are between 1 mm and 3 mm are allowable as long as there is no more than 1 per panel.
Please Note:- Australian standards allow for inclusions up to 5 mm in diameter.
AUSTRALIAN BUILDING CODE AS 1288
These Doors are made in accordance with Australian Building Code AS 1288 Clause 5.11 which states:-
5.11 MIRRORS AND OTHER TYPES OF GLASS SUBJECT TO RISK OF HUMAN IMPACT
Where mirrors and other types of glass are required to be Grade A safety glass, ordinary annealed glass may be substituted when the panel is fully backed by and completely adhered to a solid material.
- Examples of where full backing is provided include walls, timber cupboards or wardrobe doors.
- Examples of other types of glass include mirror tiles and painted or ceramic frit glass.
- It should be noted that toughened safety glass mirrors are likely to distort as a result of the toughening process.
