At Atlas Glass Company we offer a wide variety of door glass repair - standard commercial doors, fire doors, all-glass herculite doors, insulated glass doors, revolving doors, automatic doors, and any type of residential door glass repair (except leaded or stained glass).
We offer the customer several options when considering which type of glass or material you should replace your broken door glass with. What follows is a brief description of the various advantages and disadvantages of each option.
Tempered Safety Glass:
Pros - high strength; Fast installation; reasonably priced
Cons - Only comes in one size (31 3/8 x 76 5/8); When broken shatters in thousands of small pieces and must be repaired or boarded up immediately
If your business has roll-down security gates, and you have a standard size door, then tempered safety glass is the right choice for your door glass repair.
Laminated Safety Glass:
Pros - Can be cut to any size on site (weather permitting); When broken stays in place negating the need for any emergency late night or weekend emergency service; High sound proofing qualities;
Cons - lower overall strength than tempered glass; can't be cut to size on site in inclement or cold weather; Costs about twenty five percent more than tempered safety glass.
At Atlas Glass Repair Company we almost always recommend laminated safety glass for door glass repair
Heavy Duty Wire Glass:
Pros - excellent visual deterent against vandalism; Fire-rated;
Cons - higher cost; Can't readily be cut on site
Unbreakable Polycarbonite (Lexan):
Pros - Unbreakable; Can be drilled into if necessary; can have a mail slot added
Cons - Scratches relatively easy; higher cost; somewhat flimsy look and feel; shouldn't be cleaned with amonia-based cleaners
(Note: we rarely recommend this product)
1/4 inch or 3/8 Acrylic (Plexiglass):
Pros: looks less flimsey and scratches less easily than polycarbonite material; 3/8 thickness is very durable;
Cons: Higher cost; Breakable; Shouldn't be cleaned with amonia-based cleaners;
Multi-composite building panel (Panel 15):
Note: This is an insulated/aluminum product available in a variety of finishes and colors and is typically used as the bottom of "half doors"
Pros - Used for fabricating half-doors; can be cut to add a mail slot; very durable; variety of finishes; paintable
Cons - Must be pre-ordered; higher cost
