Glass is an integral part of our lives and all of today's homes have a considerable amount of glass built into them. However the fragile nature of glass causes it to be shattered or break and that's when replacement glass is crucial. We can accommodate any custom replacement glass order.
If you need to replace broken glass, you're in the right place! We specialize in sourcing the highest-quality glass available, and fabricating your replacement glass exactly to your specifications. This is your one-stop source for replacement glass -- from broken glass table tops to shattered shelves and everything in-between.
Replacement Glass Applications
Our replacement glass can be used to remedy the following types of issues:
Types of Replacement Glass
Insulated glass is produced by placing a spacer between two panes of glass and sealing the edges of the unit. The air is trapped between the two pieces of glass and acts as an insulator to reduce the rate at which heat and cold can travel through the unit.
Insulated glass units last for a very long time, but the seal between the two panes of glass some times do fail. This causes the inner surface between the two pieces of glass to fog up. This of course does not look good but more importantly an insulated unit with a broken seal looses its insulating properties and temperature transfer between the two sides of the glass happens more readily. If this happens, in most cases only the glass portion of the window can be changed, leaving the frame intact.
In case of an accident where only one pane of the glass breaks, the entire insulated glass unit needs to be replaced. Replacement of an insulated glass unit is normally not a DIY project and requires experience. Here at Pure Showers Inc., we can measure, fabricate and install your insulated glass unit in record time.
Tough, optically transparent, break-resistant, Lexan polycarbonate surpasses all other thermoplastics for glazing use, safety and strength.
Polycarbonate is a non-toxic polycarbonate thermo resin. The liquid polymer forms when bisphenol A reacts with carbonyl chloride. Uncoated sheets are then heat- or cold-formed.
To really understand the superiority of this thermoplastic, consider these products made from polycarbonate: helmets, face shields, airplane and ship portholes, instrument components and electrical insulators – too name just a few. It’s the choice for safety, thermal protection, security, clarity and strength. Standard polycarbonate sheets even have built-in forced entry protection.
Tempered glass is a type of safety glass regularly used in applications in which standard glass could pose a potential danger. Tempered glass is four to five times stronger than standard glass and does not break into large shards when broken. Tempered glass is manufactured through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling, making it harder than normal glass.
The brittle nature of tempered glass causes it to shatter into small oval-shaped pebbles when broken. This eliminates the danger of sharp edges. Due to this property, along with its strength, tempered glass is often referred to as safety glass. The thermal process that cures tempered glass also makes it heat resistant. Tempered glass can be used in any situation where there is a danger of the glass breaking due to impact or extreme heat.
Facts About Replacement Glass
- 3/32” Single Strength Glass – Light, flimsy easily broken.
- 1/8” Double Strength Glass – Significant gain in stability, less likely to flex.
- 3/16” Glass – Suitable for larger applications such as picture windows.
- 1/4” Glass – For very large insulated glass units, commercial use, or heavy glass frameless shower enclosures.
- Clear Glass: No added tint or coating, maximum light penetration
- Low-E Glass: Special coating scatters UV light. Reduces glare, greatly improves energy efficiency, and protects furniture, upholstery, and drapery from fading.
- Pattern Glass: During manufacturing, glass is processed through extra steps to press patterns into the glass, etch the surface, or impart deliberate imperfections to achieve an artistic look. Useful for decorative purposes, creating privacy, or replicating vintage glass.
- Tinted Glass: Minerals are added to the glass give a distinct color, such as aqua or amber, for dramatic architectural applications.
