Float Glass Northridge

Set Glass Northridge

Float Glass - Film Glass – Television Studio Glass – Movie Glass

Motion Picture Glass Northridge is able to provide for all your glass needs related to your film, television show or music video. We are able to recommend and help with creative designs so that you are able to accomplish your film or digital goals in Northridge.

In Northridge we have been called upon to provide float glass (also known as flat glass) to break for explosions as we did in Transformers, breaking window glass in the Terminator and building beautiful glass walls for Star Trek. We also built an entire airport setting with background glass walls, foreground glass walls, as well as large storefront doors that the camera is able to see clearly through without capturing reflections, as we did in The Terminal. In Northridge do you need strong, safe Tempered Glass for a long conference table, a dining glass table or a custom one of kind glass desk? If you can see it, think it and draw it, we can make it for your Northridge production.

Float Glass Northridge
Float glass is also known as “annealed glass” because it is not tempered – it has not been heat strengthened. Float glass can be cut, machined, edged and polished, whatever your requirements are in Northridge. Float glass is considered hazardous in some of our applications because when it breaks, it breaks into large, jagged shards that may cause serious injuries.

Float Glass has many uses and it comes in a variety of colors. Float glass may be needed as part of your Northridge set appliances (refrigerator glass), storefronts, shelving, skylights, tabletops and household aquariums. You might want a translucent glass, an ultra clear glass or one that is an opaque color, light green color or we can even create a special color of your choice.
