Elevated Expectations
Owners and architects of high-end projects have higher expectations with respect to design, engineering and performance, and these expectations present glaziers with challenges and opportunities to stand out. High-end doors and entrances make a statement, and their hardware requires detail-driven focus in design and installation to satisfy customers, according to glaziers and suppliers.

Product Spotlight

Rapid prototyping speeds glazing restoration
Accurate gasket prototyping from Tremco’s in-house Design Engineering Group utilizing their state-of-the art 3D printer takes time out of the process. Using multi-durometer filament options, Tremco can create a highly-accurate recreation of the size, shape and fit of the specific part including ERP, mullion profiles, glazing systems and more to better see how it all comes together as a complete system.

Express 330T from Quattrolifts
Quattrolifts have just released the Express 330T which allows glaziers to fit and remove glass weighing up to 220lbs above doorways and entrances with greater safety and efficiency. The Express 330T is lightweight and can easily be transported to site by one person, assembles in minutes, unloads glass off a truck or rack and allows for precise installation above an entrance or doorway eliminating unsafe manual handling.
