Why Glass Table Tops?

  • Protect your furniture from nicks, scratches, and other possible damage.
  • Refresh older pieces with a less permanent option, as compared to stains or painted glass.
  • Glass is beautiful; glass top is an excellent way to add shine to an otherwise dull item.
  • Elevate the impact of wood tables or dressers while protecting these investments from scratches, glass rings, sun damage and scuffs.
  • Order a tabletop to complete a table, nightstand or even a plant stand.
  • Renew old glass table inserts with a glass table replacement; outdoor tables are especially vulnerable to damage and weathering.

Measures you need to take when placing directly on top of your furniture surface:

  • Recommended glass thickness: 1/4" is the preferred thickness. 3/8" or 1/2"can be used for effect but make sure that the furniture can carry the weight.
  • Recommended edge: flat polish is the preferred edge work. However, pencil polish or beveled polish can be used to give accent or a dramatic effect.
  • Glass Strength: Annealed glass is sufficient to protect the table but glass can always be tempered for added safety, especially if there are younger kids in the house.

Measures you need to take when placing glass on legs or a base:

  • Recommended glass thickness: 3/8" or 1/2" thinner glass is not recommended in these cases.
  • Recommended edge: flat polish, pencil polish, or beveled polish. This is an option where you are in complete control and you can choose the look and the effects you want for your glass furniture.
  • Recommended Strength: Tempered glass is recommended for added safety and strength.
 

Glass tabletops are used in a number of different ways, but the most popular is to use the glass to protect the surface of a table, desk, or a coffee table. When used as a cover on a wood surface, normally a thinner glass such as 1/4" is used. The edges of the glass would normally be polished to smooth them out and avoid the possibility of injury from the sharp edges. When glass is used as a wood surface cover there is no need for tempering the glass. Regarding edgeworks we offers a wide range of options. Check out all possible edgework options. Our expert glaziers with their finest machines will provide you the perfect edgeworks.
