The architectural design requirements of storefronts and building facades vary. Kenilworth Glass works with each architect to determine which finishes best suit the versatility and aesthetic needs of each project.
The ultimate objective is to achieve both beauty and durability. Anodized finishes accomplish both of these, offering many years of maintenance free durability and are available for both front and center load, as well as curtain wall systems.
When brighter colors are called for, powder coated metal finishes offer more brilliant color options and are stronger than paint. Whether the project calls for traditional paint, powder coating or anodizing, custom colors can easily be created, bringing the most imaginative architectural designs to life.

Tempered Safety Glass
Tempered Glass increases the strength approximately 4 times; however, the process makes the glass brittle and can warp its surface. The process involves heating the glass to approximately 1400 degrees, then chilling (quenching) it to 200 degrees within 2 minutes. Once tempered, it cannot be re-cut without shattering. For this reason, all fabrication must be done before the it is tempered.
Laminated Impact Glass
Laminated impact glass windows is typically 2 pieces with a plastic inner layer. The most common application for this glass is the windshield of a car. If the windshield is broken, the laminated impact glass windows will keep the passenger inside the vehicle. Another common application is in jewelry stores to defend against robbery.
