What is Privacy Glass?

Upon installation of your new wrought iron door, the team at Iron Door Services recommends the addition of privacy glass. This is glass paneling that is installed into the frames of your new wrought iron door. These panels create privacy that will make you feel more comfortable. This typically allows light in through the panels, but prevents people from looking into your space without being invited. The glass panels come in a variety of styles and coatings.

Clear Glass

When it comes to installing privacy glass into your new wrought iron door panels, clear glass is a traditional choice. Although it does allow vision through both directions, clear glass can achieve its privacy desires by installing window coverings. With the use of clear glass, it is easy to switch colors and textures by using different window clings or covering. However, if privacy is not your main concern, a clear glass panel in your newly installed wrought iron door will create a classic look that stands up to the elements!

Gray Tint

Glass panels with a slight, dark tint to them are also a popular choice in privacy glass. Gray tinted privacy glass will allow vision through them, but less on the side that is not as bright. This may require window coverings, but if you find that the gray tint suits your privacy needs then you would be all set. If it is a sunny day, people looking through the glass will have trouble seeing inside, but you would be able to see out. This is not the case if you have a well lit porch at your Monmouth County, NJ home, however.

Brown Tint

Much like gray tinted, brown tinted privacy glass keeps out excessive glare and light. A brown tint also provides a warmer aesthetic that many people enjoy for a welcoming entrance. The style of brown tinted glass also highly compliments the classic design of wrought iron doors, which creates a fluid and warm style. As far as privacy needs are concerned, the brown tint works like the gray tint in that it can mostly block people’s vision from the outside.


If you are looking for a stylish and classic look for your front door of your Monmouth County, NJ home, you may want to consider flemish glass. This glass replicates the craftsmanship of hand blown glass to present a colorful and artistic look. Flemish privacy glass allows light and sight through the panels, but it distorts the details a bit. In other words, you will not see glare on your television set. And when people look into your home through flemish glass, they will only see general shapes and movement. If you are interested in style and privacy, flemish glass may be a good fit for your new wrought iron door.

Water Cubic

A stylish and highly private brand of privacy glass is water cubic. With water cubic panels, a visitor can see some general movement, but will not be able to notice the specifics of what is on the other side of the door in Monmouth County, NJ. Water cubic glass has a traditional look that allows only light through the panels. It is geometrically stylish in that it is assembled with an array of random shapes.


A stylish and aesthetic choice for privacy glass is rain glass. These glass panels are depressed on one side running up and down. This simulates the appearance of water flowing through the glass, as if it were raining. This style is ideal for someone who is looking to create a fluid appearance in their wrought iron front doors. A passerby may be able to see movement through the glass, but not any specific details of what is going on inside the home.


For a warm and welcoming look that allows disruption of vision, pear privacy glass is a fantastic choice for your new iron doors in Monmouth County, NJ. These panels allow light to come into the home during the day by providing an entrance of natural light. The small indentations in the glass prevent visitors from seeing any inside details.


Sandblasted glass is another style that is warm, welcoming, and a bit more formal in its look. The indentations in sandblasted privacy glass create a more sophisticated and less commercial appearance. The look of sandblasted glass is more on the sheer side, which allows good natural light and maximum privacy.


If you are interested in a geometric style like water cubic with the fluid design of rain glass, aquatex is for you!
