Louis Moreau, AGNORA’s Senior Technical Specialist (or more affectionately known around the office as “Professor Glass”) met with Glass Canada before getting on stage for his Top Glass presentation on oversized glass, “How to Deal with BigAss Glass”.
Louis talks about working with jumbo and super jumbo glass and all criteria that must be considered such as format, design, using heavy glass, tempering and lamination; all must be designed accordingly.
He also touches on AGNORA’s capabilities, measuring up to a maximum size of 130″ in width and 300″ in length, we can cut, edge, temper & laminate within our Collingwood, Ontario facility.
How does one handle the delivery of such large glass? As Louis mentions, we had to have a truck specially built to handle such large glass. Before we were limited, but with the right partnership, we can deliver these sizes.
