Glasstech architectural systems are renowned for producing everything from high performance coated glass to large, gracefully bent lites to tight radius tempered panels for creative interior designs.

The Glasstech ERH (electric radiant heater) continuous float glass tempering system was introduced in 1972 and soon became the workhorse of the high volume, high quality tempered glass industry. This was followed in 1974 by the revolutionary batch or oscillating roller hearth system, which permitted processors to install a system of modest overall size that would produce high volume products and change over rapidly from one glass to another.

Then, when Glasstech unveiled its FCH (forced convection heater) in 1992, the gas fired FCH established a new norm for rapid heating high performance reflective and Low-E glass. At the same time, Glasstech introduced new convection options for its existing ERH systems, to boost throughput and processing efficiency.

In 1989, Glasstech introduced the ABTS™ advanced bending and tempering system for architectural glass shapes. ABTS can produce everything from simple cylindrical bends and asymmetrical parts to graceful S curves and V bends. The system is extremely versatile and requires no part-dedicated tooling.

Glasstech further expanded its architectural glass bending and tempering system offerings with the introduction of the TRCB™ system in 1991. TRCB bends glass horizontally in a system which uses rollers and an easily expandable bending fixture. Today, Glasstech TRCB systems lead the industry in the production of glass for display cases and bent tempered shower enclosures.

Whether ERH or FCH, Glasstech systems have an excellent reputation for ruggedness, long life, high productivity, high process yield, low operating cost, ease of operation and reliability.

Today, Glasstech systems can be relied upon to produce the highest quality tempered glass whether pre-coated or for post-coating.
