Heritage Glass.

Meticulously manufactured to match the single pane glazing in any property which they are intended to replace, Heritage thin sealed units from The Original Glass Company are the perfect choice to revitalise period properties all over the UK. Whether supplied in Float, Machine Drawn, Cylinder or Hand Drawn, all improve energy efficiency substantially while still remain wholly conservation compliant. Our units are notable for being incredibly ultra-thin, resulting in the ultimate original visual finish.

Classically-suited heritage units fit for the 21st century

So our Heritage glass units are super thin for minimal hindrance and remove on-site installation hassle, but why is there any need for them at all? Simply put, our modern variants outperform old-style glazing each time in almost every way. Once installed, properties will be able to enjoy improved energy efficiency capable of reducing costs, exceptionally thin sightlines for better outside views, better acoustic insulation, and increased security, all while retaining the established classical aesthetics expected.

I did a job a few years back and used your product for a 3 storey town house in Newcastle Upon Tyne. The job was a great success and I now have another restoration job to do in Newcastle that requires that same product.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the service I received during what was, for me, a large and involved project. I know that my client appreciated the help and advice you gave, not to mention the swift replacement of any damaged or incorrect units which were either down to my error or problems in transit. Please pass on my thanks to all involved.
