Direct Glazing both stocks, cuts and processes a large selection of float glass products - the name ‘float’ being derived from the way the glass is manufactured.
2mm float glass is mainly used in photo and picture frames.
3mm, 4mm, 6mm, 8mm and 10mm float glass are commonly used in various glazing situations.
In addition to the above we stock other sizes 5mm, 12mm, 15mm, 19mm and 25mm which in general are for more specialist uses.
We stock laminated glass in 4.4 and 6.4 thickness and can also obtain it in 7.5, 8.8, 10.8, 11.5 and other make ups on request. We carry glass up to 2540 x 1830 in stock and a full range of 4mm float. We can get toughned glass within 3 days in a working week.
This is 3mm thick and less clear than float glass as it is manufactured by a rolled process.
We stock this glass in three standard sizes - 457mm x 610mm, 610mm x 610mm and the larger size commonly known as Dutch Lights 730mm x 1420mm. Normally these are sold in these sizes but it is very easy for us to cut them to the exact size required by our customers. (We also stock the 457 x 610mm and 610mm x 610mm sizes in toughened glass).
