GHS, Glaziers Hardware Supplies is Australia’s leading supplier of glass and glazing tools for Australia’s picture framing industry.

LET US PUT YOU IN THE PICTURE!

GHS has been supplying glass and glazing products to picture framers since the 1980s, and is now the premium provider of specialist framing glass products and ancillary items to markets in NSW, ACT and QLD.

 

The family-owned business can trace its roots back to the 1970s, when founder Murray Arundell established a loyal clientele for glazing tools throughout Queensland. From its humble beginnings spanning just three shelves of a residential garage, the business developed under Murray’s leadership and quickly became the largest wholesale distributor of glazing tools in Australia.

OUR PRODUCTS

Glazing used for picture framing applications has
altered dramatically over the years.

Once delivered in 42-sheet cases by crane – and then left to the customer to unpack on site – the products of yesteryear were typically made of ‘Sheet Glass’ featuring numerous imperfections and distortions.

Today, we offer our clients Off-line Washed Clear Float Glass, Coated Ultra Clear and Anti Reflective Glass, UV Filtering Glass,and other specialist products with characteristics to suit specific artworks, materials and locations.

We understand that glass used for picture framing applications differs markedly from architectural and general-purpose glass in significant ways; we take pride in sourcing the finest, professional-grade Clear Glass varieties designed specifically for picture framing applications.

Our ranges of glass products will not discolour or distort pure whites, and are available in a variety of configurations including Non-Reflective and Mirror Glass in different thicknesses and sizes.

All GHS 2mm consignments are packed with pH-buffered paper interleaves rather than dust separators, and our Off-line Washed cleaning processes ensure that every glass panel is clean and ready for use as soon as it arrives in the client’s workshop. Our premium service includes stacking of products into each client’s storage racks, leaving framers to get on with their primary duties.

Our Glass range includes:
