We offer quality glass products, great customer service, and speedy delivery anywhere in the US. With a local tempering oven, we are able to cut out the middle man and customize your glass to any shape or size needed. Our experience allows us to cut and fabricate tempered glass for any project.
We offer custom tempered glass for residential, commercial, equipment, trailers, recreational vehicle and house boat needs. With our extensive warehouse, we can fill your glass, mirror and hardware needs quickly and easily. We can also assist you with mirrors, shelves, table tops, and window glass replacements to add a fresh look to your existing home.
When you place your order for glass or mirror, we will need to know what thickness you would like. Many times, this question stumps a customer. Our recommendation varies based on your glass need. (please note mirror only available in 1/8″ and 1/4″)
3/32” – normally used in small picture frames, clocks, etc.
1/8″- used in storm windows, picture frames, end tables, insulated units, cabinet doors, light fixtures, etc.
3/16″- used for small table tops, insulated units, small shelves, stereo cabinets, displays, etc.
1/4″- used on table & furniture tops, single-pane windows, shelves, hand rails, framed shower doors, etc.
3/8″- used in shower doors, table tops, glass walls, glass partitions, hand rails, shelves, aquariums, etc.
1/2″- used for shower doors, table tops, glass walls, glass partitions, hand rails, etc.
While we specialize in tempered glass, we also offer plate glass, safety glass, plexiglass, and mirror. We can help you decide what type of glass best fits your need. We recommend tempered glass for outside table tops, while it is required for door panels.
Tempered glass is regular glass that has been heat treated to increase strength and thermal shock resistance to prevent injury by changing the break pattern. Tempered glass is about four times stronger than non-tempered glass of the same thickness. If tempered glass breaks, it will instantly shatter into small, relatively harmless thumbnail-sized pebbles, instead of sharp, jagged shards.
After a glass has been tempered, any attempt to alter its shape can result in shattering. Tempered glass is used in applications where heat, mechanical strength and safety are a factor. Tempered glass can withstand constant temperatures of about 470° F.
