Glass Cutting

Get all of your glass and mirror cut to the size you need by our professional staff. Toughened glass can not be cut in store however if you place a toughened glass order with us we aim to have it cut, tempered and delivered to you with-in 7-10 working days.

We can also cut your own glass if you bring it into the shop, this will however be at your own risk as glass ages it can become brittle and there is a small chance it may break.

Or you can simply buy a glass cutter from us and have a crack at it yourself, although it is a bit of a pane!!
