If we don’t have the glass on hand, we know where to find it.
Prismatic glass is the main form of light projection used for this era of buildings. The concept is to have the sunlight shine through the glass and have the glass textured interior surface project the light in different angles to give an even, deep, dispersed light into the commercial building’s space. Once electricity and lighting improved, the prismatic glass was seen to be obsolete. By the 1950’s the ceilings were dropped to retain heat.
We are able to re-glaze transom windows as you would a traditional sash or those that are leaded glass windows. If the transom window needs to be brought to our shop for full restoration, we have methods to have the frame set loose from the jamb, secured for transportation, and a temporary replacement sash to fill the opening to reduce the inconvenience of the tenants. Our mission is to perform our work with minimal impact to the tenants, have a high turn around and have everything prepared for a quick install.
