ProScience, a major distributor of technical flat glass products, with over 90 years of experience in industrial and architectural glass distribution, has today announced the launch of Glassopolis, a new company dedicated to serving the architectural specialty glass market.

ProScience is a well-established distribution company with a particular expertise in high-temperature, fire-rated, lead x-ray and other specialty glass. It has sold more than 10 million square feet of clear high-temperature and fire-rated glassceramics and is a recognized expert in technical glass sales and distribution. Glassopolis will distribute specialty architectural glass to commercial glass contractors. Its product range initially includes clear fire-rated glass, X-ray glass, anti-reflective glass, fireplace and hearth replacement glass, custom decorated glass and a range of other specialty glass products that commercial glass contractors need for special projects. “Glass contractors are terribly under served when it comes to specialty glass products,” said Jordan Richards, President of Glassopolis. “They need options that can help them complete their projects on time and on budget.

Glassopolis is here to meet the needs of the glass contractor. These guys are tired of suppliers pushing expensive, highly marked-up exclusive products down their throats. We give them options that meet the specifications for the projects they have.” Glassopolis will also appeal to glass manufacturers coming to market with new competitive products. One of the world’s leading technical glass manufacturers, SCHOTT AG, has made their world class fire-rated glass-ceramics PYRAN® Star and PYRAN® Crystal, both UL classified for up to 90 minutes with hose stream, available through Glassopolis.

“SCHOTT PYRAN is a strong entrant in the US fire-rated glass category,” said

Rob Botman, General Manager of Glassopolis. “It outperforms incumbent

products in many applications and is a fantastic option for many commercial

glazing projects. Glass contractors are looking for fire-rated options, and this is a great one.”

“Glass contractors want to bid with confidence on specialty glass projects,” Richards said. “They need a supplier who can give them expert product knowledge and quotes within minutes, then follow that up with the fast delivery and flexible payment terms they need to win the job they’re bidding on.”
