Heavy Plate Glass

Heavy Plate Glass

Sheet & Float Glass

Also referred to as sheet glass or float glass, heavy plate glass is manufactured in a float system where molten glass is floated on a bed of molten tin then 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

We had purchased a server/buffet and decided to get clear 1/4" glass to protect it since it is used as an espresso/coffee bar. Talked to Mary who gave us all the information we needed on thickness and edge work options. Although she said it could take from 2 to 4 days, she called back that afternoon to say it was ready. We picked it up the next morning and it was just what was promised and included the small clear discs for setting on the buffet. We are pleased with our purchase.
