what is channel glass?
A translucent U-shaped cast glass produced in several widths ranging from 9" - 19" and lengths to 23 feet. The basic ingredients of LINIT channel glass are - sand, lime, soda, and carefully recycled glass. The mix is combined in a highly sophisticated oxygen-fired melting furnace to emerge as a ribbon of high quality molten glass. It is then drawn over a series of steel rollers to form a continuous glass channel of specific dimensions and surface finish. The endless ribbon of channel glass is carefully cooled and cut prior to custom processing and packaging for dispatch.
|Europe's first oxygen-fired glass melting furnace guarantees Lamberts' glass is the world's most environmentally-friendly cast glass today.||The glass mass - still in its molten form after leaving the furnace, is rolled into a U-shape before it is cooled and hardened.|
