Door Glass Privacy Levels, Explained
The level of privacy for door glass depends on the amount and placement of texture within the glass.
- Clear, transparent glass has no texture at all — you can see straight through it. This glass is considered low privacy.
- Medium privacy glass has some texture to it and uses a combination of clear and opaque glass. Sight through this type of windows will be partially obscured
- Opaque, highly textured glass is considered high privacy. When looking through this type of glass, the viewer will only be able to see shadows and colors.
