a glimpse into glass

At eggersmann we continue our efforts to utilize sustainable materials in unique ways. Our use of glass is no exception. Our designers and craftsmen collaborate to seamlessly meld glass with aluminum, wood, and composite materials to create novel and original beauty.

The advent of glass-making is believed to date back to 3500BC. The naturally occurring compound of silicone dioxide is fused with temperatures over 3000° Fahrenheit to achieve the non-porous smooth surface.  Glass is neither a solid or liquid, but rather remains between the two states and is called an amorphous solid. Ever noticed old glass windows in buildings? That is because glass though having properties of a solid, continues to flow being pulled by gravity.

Eggersmann glass door styles are offered in six frame configurations and available in nearly unlimited color combinations.

[new] AR24

Our newest aluminum frame style consists of 4mm clear, bronze tinted, grey tinted, frosted, or smoked glass.  The frame is 24mm wide and available in 5 metal color options – bronze, chrome, matte black, titanium, and brass.  This special low profile door is mounted using our invisible hinge system.

vetro

Our 4mm polished full overlay glass runs edge to edge with an aluminum-framed backer for structure.  This door style uses our standard self and soft closing hinges and comes in unlimited back-painted glass color choices with a selection of mirror-coated or tinted options.

vetro satinato

Similar to Vetro but the 4mm face of glass is a deep matt finish with minimal reflectivity.

Aside from its natural reflective and attractive physical properties, glass is also the right choice for those concerned with hygiene. Glass is easy to clean and to maintain.  Taken care of in the right way, it will last you a lifetime. We recommend eggersmann glass cleaner to protect your glass surfaces.

We at eggersmann believe that beauty and art is all around us and should be used in our homes in every way possible.

 

In the immortal words of George Bernard Shaw – “You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul”.
