Learn About Glass
Out of the fire and into the future
Glass is made from three of earth's most basic substances, yet it provides a technologically advanced and durable building material with the unique property we take for granted - of transmitting light.
How different our lives would be without it!
Our houses and offices would be dark, cars would be impractical and window shopping would not be possible. A glazed wall or window visually unites the inside and the out - connecting while protecting.
And can you imagine a world without a mirror?
Seeing the future in glass
When our glass was first used in Australia back in 1856, nothing could suggest the advances in architecture, construction, transport, housing and other industries and technologies which were to follow.
Our glass products have developed in response to the demands of architects, engineers, designers and builders, meeting the needs of the Australasian and world commercial, residential and automotive markets.
