Experts in Bespoke Glass Products
Our commitment to quality and service has seen our business grow, starting in 2009 from a small workshop to today a large state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. We have a customer-first approach, providing first-class glass products with excellent customer service, which means we are honoured to have customers who return to us time and again.
Looking for a template and install? Our expert installation team are available for any products we manufacture, ensuring a smooth, problem free project – right from the initial enquiry to the final install.
For a simple product the option of supply only is available, where the product is supplied and collected by yourselves. For a more complex project supply only is still an option but we advise this should only be chosen by a competent DIYer or professional installer.
On a supply only basis, most of our customers choose to collect their orders. However, some products are too large/heavy and in this instance a delivery service is available.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the different types of glass?
There are many different types of glass from clear, tinted, ultra-clear (low iron), satin and mirror. Glass can be toughened and non-toughened or laminated.
Where do I have to use toughened glass?
Single pane toughened glass is used in multiple applications such as, glass balustrades with a handrail, office partitioning, glass splashbacks, glass shower-screens, juliet balconies and counter tops to name a few. Toughened glass should be installed as a safety feature where it is to be installed near any heat source or where the glass ‘is the barrier’ eg. partitioning, balustrading, doors.
Toughened glass is up to five times as strong than conventional un-toughened glass and has the characteristic of shattering into small pieces should it break which limits the injury potential if this were happen.
How is glass toughened?
Annealed glass is heated in a furnace to around 700 degrees and cooled quickly by the means of air pressure. this creates a tempering process which hardens the glass, giving a more durable product.
What is tempered glass?
Tempered glass is another name for toughened glass that is produced in a tempering furnace.
What is the difference between toughened and laminated glass?
Laminated glass is made up of two or more pieces of glass that have been bonded together with a plastic interlayer. The reason for this is quite simply if one piece of glass should get broken the interlayer and the second piece of glass would keep the screen intact, preventing it from falling or producing shape edges and thereby limiting injury.
Is laminated glass toughened or un-toughened?
Laminated glass can be both toughened or un-toughened. The un-toughened version is generally used in the glazing of large screens such as shop fronts or with a fireproof interlayer in the use of fire protection screens and doors. The toughened laminated version is generally used for glass balustrading where handrail isn’t required or wanted.
What is annealed glass?
Annealed glass is the correct term for standard glass that is not toughened.
Does glass have a green hue?
Generally standard glass does have a green tint and whilst in many cases is not visible front facing, it can be seen from the side. Whilst this is not detrimental to the aesthetics of the product in many applications, in certain circumstances it is beneficial to use a low-iron glass that is optically pure. This is why we use Opti glass (low iron) for all our splashbacks, thus ensuring vibrancy of colour, giving the glass best optical quality possible.
Can a mirror be toughened?
Yes, however standard mirrors that has been produced by the application of silver nitrate cannot be toughened as the toughening process will degrade the mirroring. However, standard glass can be toughened and after our latest innovation processes can give a mirrored finish resulting in the product of a toughened mirror.
Do toughened mirrors look the same as standard mirror?
Toughened mirror is a hand produced product that results in an 80% likeness to standard mirror.
What thicknesses of glass are there?
Standard glass comes in the following thicknesses and is usually used in the listed installations:
- 3mm - greenhouse glass
- 4mm - small glass applications
- 6mm - Splashbacks, larger standard glass applications e.g. furniture protection
- 8mm - Balustrades, shower screens, shelving, stair glass
- 10mm - Doors, window sills, balustrades, balconies, shower screens, partitioning, stair glass
- 12mm - Balustrades, balconies, Fire hearths, doors
In addition to this laminated glass is available in many various thicknesses.
