Black Toughened Glass
Our new online tool makes it easier than ever to choose the type, shape, dimensions and custom details of your glass. To make life easier, we offer polished edges as standard and the ability to drill holes in your order.
Ordering Custom Glass
We can custom cut glass to almost fit any space. We can design and manufacture everything from an individual shelf to a bespoke audio visual storage unit. Although most of our glass will have a standard polished edge, special edge finishes are available on request. Please be aware that any sizes below the 350mm x 100mm threshold will come as normal glass, as we are unable to toughen glass sizes below these dimensions. All items are made to measure and therefore cannot be returned so please review and confirm your selections carefully.
Delivery & Lead Times
Please allow up to 15 working days for manufacture and delivery. Oversized and CNC Panels can take from 20-25 working days. All delivery times are estimates and therefore cannot guarantee any delivery will reach you on a certain date or at a certain time as we outsource all deliveries to third parties. We therefore recommend that you do not organise workmen until your goods have been delivered so that you can avoid any such loss.

3 Unique Shapes & CAD Drawings
We have a number of regular shapes you can order online, however if are you looking for a unique shape, we offer a couple of ways to help us create that for you. The best way for us to make exactly what you want, is to provide us a digital file, like a CAD drawing. We understand that sometimes it can be too difficult to create a digital file. If that’s the case, you can send us a simple sketch and a member of our team can assist you.
Please feel free to contact us at any time to discuss your requirements in more detail.
|Maximum Panel Size||Our online calculators can process sizes up to 900mm x 2800mm. This is the maximum size we can ship out via our couriers. For all sizes greater than this please get in touch as special glass couriers will be required to deliver this glass.|
|Minimum Panel Width||Some restrictions apply to cutting glass as it is very difficult to cut a strip of glass less than the glass thickness. panels thinner than 60mm in any given dimensions will be processed with 3 sides polished and non-toughened glass.|
|Flat Polish (P.A.R)||All our glass comes with flat polished edges as standard. This is produced by a straight line edging machine and produces a fine polished flat edge suitable for situations where the glass has exposed edges as used in furniture glass and all frameless toughened glass applications.|
|Bevelled Edges||With straight line and shaped bevelling a beautiful and decorative touch can be added to mirrors, table tops, glass door panels and furniture glass. Available on glass thicknesses 4 - 19mm in a variety of bevel widths and on annealed or toughened glass. The bevel width available is dependent upon glass thickness and the required residual edge.|
|Tolerances||We manufacture our glass products using different processes, determined by the requirement of the glass product to be made. Because of this, tolerance ranges do vary by the design of the item. We follow all best practices and guidelines outlined by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and work with the advised nominal tolerance of ± 2mm on all toughened glass products. Laminate glass and decorative glass tolerances may vary.|
|Dubbed Corners||The sharp corner of the glass it lightly sanded off manually to remove the sharp point. Not as neat as radius corners, dubbed corners are still heavily used just to take off the sharp point and add safety.|
|Hole Diameter (Ø)||The hole diameter must be greater than or equal to the thickness of the glass with a minimum of 6mm.|
|Distance from the Edge||The distance from the edge of the hole to edge of the glass must be greater than or equal to 2 times the glass thickness. For glass 4 to 6mm thick, this hole distance can be reduced to 1.5 times the glass thickness.|
|Distance from a Corner||In a corner the hole must be greater than or equal to 4 times the glass thickness from the corner and greater than or equal to 2 times the glass thickness from the other edges.|
|Distance between Holes||The distance between holes must be greater than or equal to 4 times the glass thickness.|
|Large Hole Diamters (Ø)||Large hole diameters must be less than or equal to 1/3 of the pane width and height.|
|Minimum Panel Size||In any pane with holes, the minimum width or height of the pane must be 8 times the glass thickness.|
|Internal Cut-Outs and Notches|
|Distance between a Cut-Out and Glass Edge||The distance of the cut-out to the glass edge must not be less than 30mm for glass up to 6mm, and 50mm for glass over 6mm.|
|Distance between a Notch and Glass Edge||The distance between a notch and the glass edge must be greater than or equal to 75mm.|
|Internal Radius of Cut-Outs and Notches||All rectangular cut-outs must have radius corners with a minimum radius either greater than or equal to the glass thickness. All notches must have holes or radius corners greater than or equal to the glass thickness.|
|Cut-Out Height or Width||The height or width of a cut-out must not be less than or equal to 1/3 of the pane height or width.|
|Semi-Circular Cut-Outs||All cut-outs with semi-circular ends must have a 20mm minimum radius and internal corners with a minimum radius greater than or equal to the glass thickness.|
|'C' Notches||Half hole ‘C’ notches must have a radius greater than or equal to the glass thickness and a slot opening greater than or equal to the glass thickness.|
