Glass Minimum and Maximum Sizes

To determine the minimum and maximum sizes available for finished glass products, the glass processor must be consulted. Physical/mechanical capabilities and constraints of the fabricator will affect the final finished glass size availability.

Special considerations for oversized glass: IG and Heat Treatment

It’s important to understand that not all fabricators are equipped to process and / or heat-treat the sizes shown above. Minimum and maximum sizes are dictated by:

  • The size of glass available from the primary manufacturer
  • Any limitations in the fabricator’s equipment
  • The capabilities of the contract glazier
  • Availability of specialized shipping and handling equipment (particularly for oversize units)
  • Specific glass type: (silk-screened, heat-treated, laminated , etc.)
