What Are Fluted Glass Pros?
Fluted glass allows light transmission without distorting the perspective. It simply allows the light to bounce off the ribbed lines and easily disperses it without being too bright for the space.
If you happen to have a low ceiling, the fluted glass ribbed panel can give your space the illusion of height; making it appear taller than it normally is. Or it can also make your space look wider, depending on the glass’ orientation.
And finally in terms of aesthetics, because it has such a pristine and sleek look, it gives off a hazy look of clarity and consistency as though water were running down consistently. It can also break the monotony of a severe space by simply positioning it as either a door, a divider, or even an accent.

What Are Fluted Glass Cons?
However, when one thinks about the cons of fluted glass, one needs to consider that fluted glass can be quite costly; with prices ranging from 200-300% more than the price of regular glass. Still, if you are going to achieve the look with film, it won’t be expensive.
It can also prove to be difficult to clean especially for the concave and convex spaces on the glass. It is important to invest in a supplier who provides easy instructions for aftercare or a cleaning service that can clean and maintain your glass.
And most importantly, although the thickness is a lot more than a regular one, it lacks the equivalent strength due to irregular surfaces caused by the ribbing. To put it simply, it may be thick, but it isn’t a guarantee that it will be strong enough to withstand certain elements. Again, it doesn’t go to usual glass spruce up with film.
