Reeded Glass FAQs

Learn more about some of the most frequently-asked questions we receive.

How is reeded glass made?

Also known as fluted or ribbed glass, Dillmeier Glass Company works with its preferred float glass manufacturers, who create this design by pressing tempered glass between metal rollers for a uniquely customized pattern. Operating the most technologically advanced equipment, our trained technicians can then provide specialized finishing services, including edging and polishing, and cutting and shaping to help achieve any decorative look you desire for your application.

What are the benefits of reeded glass?

Varying in thickness from ¼ to ⅜ of an inch, reeded glass is suitable for walls, windows, and doors. Its ripple-like appearance provides elegant decorative and branding options while adhering to privacy measures required by certain industries, such as health care.

Can reeded glass be tempered?

The short answer is yes. All of our glass products undergo a specialized, five-step process whereby glass is heat treated within special tempering ovens, making it stronger and safer to prevent injuries. Per guidelines specified by standards organization ASTM International, tempering is four-to-five times stronger than annealed or untreated glass.
