There are many reasons why glass is such a versatile component; it's transparency, smooth surfaces, resistance to thermal shock, and high resistance to corrosion and chemicals. In the right hands it can even be worked to tolerances of a few microns - the same as metal.

Our care and commitment is carried through all levels of manufacture and is reflected in our choice of the finest equipment available:- from the specialised multi-headed gas torches and the high-precision glass holding lathes that spin the molten glass to keep it symmetrical, to the high temperature annealing ovens that relieve the stress in the glass once it has been worked
