About Glazing Vision INC

Glazing Vision are specialists in the field of cutting edge skylight design, our skylights are installed on roofs throughout the World, we have installed products in New York, Boston, San Francisco, California and even Hawaii.

Our offices in Jersey City service the entire United States, with trained experts helping architects find solutions for their projects.

We manufacture a selection of standard skylights, from easy to install fixed skylight to more complex sliding skylights and access solutions. As well as stock products, we custom-build skylights for architects and clients, to turn their projects in to light and airy buildings.

Our skylight design ethos is: minimize framework maximize daylight. Our designs focus on reducing the amount of framework and enhancing daylight and ventilation. We have invested heavily in improving our skylights thermal performance. All our skylights are assembled in the factory and rigorously tested prior to dispatch.

We carry out installations either through our in-house installers or via a network of glazing installation specialists carefully selected and rigorously trained by us.

Our History

Glazing Vision's HistoryGlazing Vision founded in a garage in 1994, we started as a glazing refurbishment company by Hugh Callacher who remains involved with the business and is passionate about bringing the range of skylight solutions to the American market.

The company really changed in 2002 when a range of flat roof skylights were launched, taking the market by storm.

In 2004 Jon Shooter joined Glazing Vision and focused on building the brand and product offering to architects and final customers.

We have been exporting Worldwide, the first international order being received in 2009.

In 2010 we moved to a new 65,000 ft2 factory, bringing everyone under one roof, bringing in our own paint shop and gaining control of more of our out sourced processes.

In 2014 we set about relaunching our whole range with even better thermal performance. Working with Anglia Ruskin University we developed an agreed method for skylight thermal performance measuring.

2016 we set up a US office in Jersey City, it has always been our intention to invest into the US. Our skylights have been shipped here since 2009, we have successfully installed skylights in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Texas and even a sliding box skylight on Martha’s Vineyard.

Our Process

Our ProcessWe work with architects getting involved in the design process as early as possible.  We help architects find the right solution for their projects.

There is so much to consider when specifying a skylight.  Where is the skylight going? the type of building, what is the skylight going to be used for daylight/ventilation/roof access.  Building codes have to be considered and potentially glass specifications have to be sought to resolve a potential problem.

The technology in glass is developing all the time, we have installed various specifications to meet many demanding requirements.  Walk on glass, bullet proof glass, drive over glass, smart glass which changes configuration at the touch of a button.  We have the experience and expertise to help you find a solution.

Design & Drawings

Custom Skylight Design & DrawingsMany of our skylights are made to each individual order.  We also have stock sizes to choose from online straight off the shelf.

You can download standard details from the website or request these from our team to drop into your drawings.

We employ engineers and designers who excel in bringing custom skylight ideas to life.  A visit to our factory floor during any given week will see various shapes, sizes and configurations being manufactured.  Whether a shaped fixed skylight or a complex sliding configuration we have a design team that can make anything possible.

Your custom skylight will first of all be developed using the latest 3d software and developed on screen to the minutest detail.  We produce a full range of General Arrangement drawings for approval.  Then the work happens to bring the design to life.  Even custom skylights are built completely in the factory and tested fully before dispatch.

BIM

Building Information ModellingGlazing Vision can offer Building Information Modelling (BIM) models for integration into your project.  If you need a BIM REVIT model, then please contact one of our team.

Using a BIM model enables us to demonstrate the full performance of our skylights.

Research & Development

Glazing Vision's Research & DevelopmentGlazing Vision invest heavily in Research and Development and is at the heart of all we do.

We were the original company to launch a flat-roof glass skylight

We have our own in house R&D team, consistently looking at ways we can improve each products performance.  We are also looking at how we can shape the future of skylight design.  We are known for launching new innovative skylights.  There is always work being done behind the scenes on the next skylight.

Our electronics are all developed in house, we employ software developers that work on integration of our systems with building management systems and various devices.

Manufacture

Quality ManufacturingGlazing Vision skylights are manufactured in-house at our UK factory in Diss, Norfolk.

We often have people coming and visiting the factory who end up amazed at the level of expertise put into every skylight.

We employ skilled engineers and mix that with the latest CNC machinery to ensure skill and precision with every skylight manufactured.

Because everything is manufactured in house we can not only control the quality of the skylight being produced but also the environment they are being manufactured in.  We are a BSI ISO9001 and BSI14001 certificated company.  Our quality systems are designed to ensure a quality skylight is manufactured every time.

Testing

Glazing Vision's Test CycleTesting is paramount Glazing Vision with every skylight put to test before it leaves the factory. Every motorized skylight will go through a 100 time test cycle. Sometimes clients request independent testing and this involves sending the skylights away after manufacture to be independently tested.

Supply & Install

Skylight Supply & InstallationWe supply and install skylights all around the world. We operate teams of highly trained fitters to carry out our skylight installations.  We are developing a network of approved installers that go through a rigorous training program to install our complete range.
