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, Water White, 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:

CLEAR FLOAT GLASS

2mm Clear Float Glass
GHS only stocks Guardian Premium artGuard Clear Float. This is an ultra clear product produced on state of the art Guardian Glass Corp Float Lines. After the production stage, but before packing, the glass destined to GHS is taken off line and washed on a separate washing line, before being packed with special paper interleaving so you can be sure that your 2mm Clear Float will be delivered to you in a clean dust free condition. GHS stocks 2mm Clear Float in a range of sizes to facilitate economical cutting optimisation.

Sizes available:
1220mm x 920mm
1016mm x 813mm
1525mm x 920mm
1525mm x 1060mm
1525mm x 1220mm

3mm Clear Float Glass
GHS also carries 3mm Clear Float as a stock line, which can be useful for ‘oversized’ jobs or in situations where 2mm thick glass may be unsuitable.

Sizes available:
1525mm x 1220mm
1840mm x 1220mm

2mm Single-Sided Inspiration Non-Reflective
GHS stocks only the best European-manufactured 2mm Non-Reflective Glass. (Lower-grade ranges are manufactured using Sheet Glass, which can be prone to distortion and manufacturing defects.) Inspiration only has the etching on one side. This allows more light transfer while limiting reflection.

Sizes available:
1220mm x 920mm
1525mm x 920mm

GHS 3mm Clear ArtCrylic
Our cast acrylic ArtCrylic product is an ideal alternative to glass. GHS ArtCrylic has the clarity of glass but the flexibility of acrylic and is supplied with protective film on both sides to ensure you receive a clean and scratch-free product.

2440mm x 1220mm

3mm & 4mm Mirror
GHS also carries a range of useful stock sizes of 3mm and 4mm Mirror Glass. As with our Clear Glass range, our mirror products are manufactured using the latest technology and materials.
