Proud suppliers of Metro Glass

When it comes to choosing the right type of glass for your doors and windows, there are a number of considerations that can influence your decision

  • The climate where you live
  • The location of the building
  • The placement of the windows or doors
  • The purpose of the windows or doors
Arriving at a decision in glass selection will require a balance between light, heat, and fading control. The more light you want coming in, the less you can control heat and fading
