We can reproduce car windscreens, rear and side windows in breakaway glass. We can work from a real window supplied by you, or a template, and they can be produced as being either; Shaped or just rectangular edges, Curved/contoured or flat, Tinted, coloured or clear, or any combination thereof. It can be given a plastic coating to hold the glass together while still allowing it to crack & shatter. This is normally laminated only on one side; the camera side.
Please be aware that breakaway car window glass breaks into larger shards like our normal sheet glass, not shattering into tiny pieces like tempered safety glass (as per real car windows), although our glass is obviously a far safer option. Car windows are priced per square foot, plus any setup & crating charges. Each piece is poured to size and cannot be adjusted once made, so its best to make absolutely sure of your sizes before you confirm an order. The largest size we usually make is (200cm x 100cm) or (6ft x 3½ft) and the thickness ranges from 4mm for the smallest upto 7mm for the largest sheets, but this is completely dictated by the size of a given sheet, and the thickness of the glass doesn’t correspond to its strength. Please note that as a thermoplastic material, sheet glass can contract by <1% from it’s original poured size depending on your ambient working temperature.
All car windows are produced on an order by order basis. Manufacturing times depend on the size of an order, but rarely take more than one week from the order being confirmed & paid for, and the templates arriving, to being ready to collect, although very large orders can sometimes take longer.
We can ship our sheet glass (and variants) worldwide via road or air freight, but as a general rule sheet glass orders within England, Wales & Scotland are collected from us via direct collection arranged by the purchaser. Collected orders are packed into wooden crates to allow for transportation, but still need to be kept upright at all times.
Glass orders to be shipped internationally are further packed in a second sprung wooden crate, much like our patented ‘Boingy Box’ packing system, with a base pallet to keep the crate upright and allow easy transportation. This reduces the risk of breakages as much as is possible. Generally, shipping via air freight takes a day or so, but would be as far as the destination airport only. Road freight usually takes longer, but would be to your door. Please contact us if you require a shipping quote.
