Recently ThinkGlass was informed that its innovative glass treads were making the list of the “101 Best New Products of 2013" by Professional Builder Magazine.
The same glass treads with a polished edge were also named in the "101 Best New Products of 2013" by Professional Remodeler Magazine. The editors of both publications considered that ThinkGlass’ new glass treads with no lamination lines, clear edges and no VOC, fit the bill of a “best new product” worth mentioning.
This is not the first time that ThinkGlass has been mentioned in the “101 Best New Products” from the Professional Remodeler Magazine and Professional Builder Magazine. In 2012, ThinkGlass was mentioned in the same list for the quality of its unique artistic glass countertop: Professional Remodeler (page link) and the Professional Builder (page link).
“We are very proud of our glass treads. There is nothing like it on the market, and certainly not with pure polished edges like our treads. We have passed all the New York City construction loads tests and we are presently working on obtaining more certification,” says Bertrand Charest, President and co-owner of ThinkGlass. M. Charest is also an engineer and works with architects on vast projects and on spectacular staircases.
Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler will be presenting the "101 Best New Products of 2013" in their August 2013 issues. You can also have more details on their website HousingZone.com
The ThinkGlass story began in 1999 in an empty room under the leadership of two creative individuals who were passionate about beautiful glasswork. Today, the company is one of the most successful glass design and manufacturing studios in the world with a shop that encompasses more than 30,000 square feet, 27 employees and 21 state-of-the-art, custom made ovens.
ThinkGlass is still headed by its two original founders – glass master Michel Mailhot who is the artistic soul of the company, and Bertrand Charest, a certified engineer and company president. Together with their talented team, they produce all manners of glass masterpieces, from residential kitchen to bath- room vanity countertops and backsplashes to fantastical sculptures, wall murals and floor tiles, and even large-scale commercial projects for restaurants, nightclubs and offices.
ThinkGlass quickly became a leader in the thermoforming industry by pioneering a versatile technique that allows the creation of new or repetitive textures. This process allows the creation of glass slabs without thickness constraints opening the door to all kinds of design possibilities. All ThinkGlass creations are made from 100% recyclable glass using sustainable practices and without the use of any adhesive or sealant potentially containing harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
