Lamberts LINIT U-Glass

Cast or profiled glass is one of the oldest methods of glass production. While the glass is still hot and in a plastic state, it is rolled and bent into 'U' shape profiles of various widths up to 7m long. It is 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. 

LINIT can have multiple surface finishes, including cord and prismasolar patterns and 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. LINIT is also able to be installed as internal partitions and over an interior wall as cladding.

There are many methods of installing these glass elements, including a unique glazing channel system. At Woods Glass, we will help specify the appropriate product based on your design.
