Cast Glass (Linit 'U' Profiled)

Cast or profiled glass is one of the oldest methods of glass production. Whilst the glass is still hot and in a plastic state it is rolled and bent into various width moulded 'U' shape profiles up to 7mtrs long, then cooled, annealed and cut to length. The resulting glass channels all have an individual optical character which gives the effect of a lively, light refracting glass façade. The U-profile channels can have multiple surface finishes, including cord, and Prismasolar patterns, sandblasted or ceramic frit (coloured). Linit U-Glass can also be made in low iron glass and can be toughened and heat soaked.

Originally channel glass was a low cost solution for simple commercial and industrial buildings, however it has become a fashionable building element that is now specified by leading architects for museums, hospitals, shopping centres and sport stadiums etc.

There are many methods of installing these glass elements, including a unique glazing channel system. We will help specifiy the appropriate product based on your design.
