Glass has widespread practical uses within the home and workplace. It allows light and heat to enter, and can help to insulate from extreme weather conditions and loud noises

When it’s time to decide on your Glass & Glazing requirements, consider the aspects of:

  • Natural Lighting

  • Privacy and Safety Issues

  • Solar Heat Gain and Energy Efficiency

FLOAT GLASS     

  • Also known as Plate or Annealed Glass and commonly used in residential windows. The location of your window will determine the thickness of glass installed
