Easy Hanging Tips for Painters and Decorators

Glasstex and Glasstex Essential are the lightest glass textile in the market, which makes it the easiest to install. This is evident in difficult areas, such as around pillars, corners and edges.

Glasstex is pliable and can take rough handling, whether wet or dry. It is easy to smooth out folds and air bubbles without disrupting the weave. You can even remove Glasstex from the wall and re-hang it, if necessary.

The weave holds together when being trimmed, and joints are invisible after painting. Since Glasstex is so easy to apply, you can save both time and money. It also improves the painter’s work environment.
