Glazing Fabricators

While most structural glazing projects are glazed and installed by a single contract glazier, some installers prefer to install glazed units that are fabricated and glazed by others. Provided in the list below are several glazing fabricators who have experience in shop glazing curtain wall systems for installation by contract glazers. These fabricators have experience with glazing 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tape compatible glazing systems (LIST (PDF, 1.21 MB)) and have completed more than five (5) projects using 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tape. They also understand and follow 3M’s required process protocol for each individual project, including the submittal of the project information needed to start a project.

Please note that it is the installer’s responsibility to select and qualify the specific glazing fabricator to make certain that they can meet your glazing needs and project schedule.
