Safety Glass Option
We can create LAMINATED SAFETY GLASS out of most of our art glass choices. We can bond the art glass to a piece of clear glass with a special polymer resin that will join the two pieces of glass into one laminated piece. This is the same process used to make the glass for your car's windshield.
Laminated safety glass can be used in any commercial application and is safe for over doorways and in base cabinets.
Safety glass is aprox. 1/4" in thickness
Sandblasting the back of the art glass turns it a milky white opaque color. This works great if you don't want to see into your cabinet but still shows the unique texture of your art glass.
Shipping and Handling
We charge a flat rate of $35.00 for shipping and handling anywhere in the continental United States.
This covers your shipping and handling cost for up to 5 items shipped via UPS ground service. For each additional item after the initial 5, you must add $ 5.00 per item.
All packages are insured in the event of any damage during shipping.
We use a 3 stage shipping and inspection process to insure that your new glass arrives in perfect condition.
Before orders are packaged for shipping they are thoroughly cleaned and inspected to insure there are no scratches or imperfections.
Once the glass is inspected, it is pre-wrapped with foam sheeting and either wood panels or hard cardboard to protect the outer surfaces.
The glass is then submerged in a box of injected foam which expands around the glass and locks it in place and protects it during shipping.
We have achieved a 98% success rate with our shipping method over the past 10 years.
1. Place cabinet door onto a front side down onto a table or flat surface. This will protect the front of the door from getting scratched or damaged during installation.
2. Remove any glass retainer clips or rubber spline trim from cabinet door.
3. Remove glass from package and set glass into the door opening. Front side of glass is the textured side.
4. If rubber spline trim was supplied with your cabinet door, then re-install spline trim to hold in the glass. If no spline was supplied, then move on to step 5.
5. Determine placement of mounting plastic clips on the door. We recommend 6 clips for doors up to 30" tall, and 8 clips for doors up to 40" tall. Short doors under 24" tall should only need 4 clips.
6. Mark the door where the mounting clips are to be installed with a pencil. (Mounting area of clip should be placed at least 1/4" from edge to prevent splitting of door)
7. Drill a shallow pilot hole with a 1/16" drill bit. (Drill bit not included) Be extremely careful not to drill too deep or you will come through the front of the door.
8. Use screws to secure clips. Clips may be trimmed with wire cutters if they are putting too much pressure on the glass. The clips should be just slightly touching the glass.
