Heavy Plate Glass

Heavy Plate Glass

Sheet & Float Glass

Also referred to as sheet glass or float glass, plate glass is manufactured in a float system where molten glass is floated on a bed of molten tin where it is drawn out and rolled to the desired thickness in a continuous sheet. Thicknesses can range from 1/16" to over 1" thick in sheets as large as 120" high by 180" wide. Float glass in thicknesses of 3/8" and above are considered Heavy Plate. Watch this short video on how glass is made.

Applications

Common uses of heavy plate glass are table tops, shelving and decorative space dividers. When heat tempered it can be used for interior walls, shower enclosures, mall storefronts and commercial doors. Much of the appeal of heavy plate glass in decorator items is the massive look and the wide range of edge work that is possible. When used for walls in confined spaces like offices or inside malls, heavy plate glass can provide defined spaces with security while maintaining an open, light filled area.

What Our Customers Say

I recently needed to have some glass replaced in my home, after searching the internet I found Best Glass and gave them a call. Not only was this company pleasant and friendly, they were very knowledgeable about their products. They gave me a time frame of 5-7 days to have my job done. On the fourth day I received a call from Mary to schedule my appointment. She was so kind and worked around my schedule. When the installer came to complete the job he was very professional and completed the job in a timely manner. I would recommend this company, and will use them in the future if I find I need their services again.
