LambertsGlas® "Genuine Craftsmanship"
LambertsGlas is handmade, manufactured with blow-pipes or as rolled glass in traditionally passed down production techniques. LambertsGlass features certain characteristics that distinguish our products from purely machine driven production glass. Every one of our sheets is a unique representation of its kind.
Consequentially, artisinal features are part of our production process and are not defects. These manufacturing features are (small) air bubbles, color shadings, striations from the moulds, chafe marks, reams or so called ox-eyes (larger air-bubble) that give our products their distinctive character. It is also inevitable and quite common that colors from new productions differ slightly from master samples.
Sheets that are produced in our genuine-mouthblown method come in sizes of approximately 60 x 90 cm with a thickness of 2.5 to 3.5mm. Note the actual thickness can vary between 2mm in the middle and 5mm near the natural edge of a sheet.
Sheets that are produced in our new-antique method come in approximate sizes of 85 x 100 cm with an average thickness of about 1.5 to 2.5 mm. Again, near the edges thicker areas up to 4mm are possible.
Table-Cathedral (rolled) glass is usually delivered in sizes of 60 x 88 cm, but on request also available in original size of ca. 88 x 180 cm. Thickness is approximately 3mm. Further properties for table-cathedral glass are squeezers graphite dust (separating agent).
How to handle mouthblown glass
When processing LambertsGlas for insulating-glass special care for cleaning prior to assembly is required.
LambertsGlas must be stored unpacked and appropriately kept in a dry and dust-free environment.
