Cube Glass partners with Panoramah

Glass and aluminium specialist, Cube Glass,has become the selected supplier in Scotland for Panoramah, which makes a range of minimalist sliding doors and curtain walling with ultra-thin sightlines at two factories at Porto in North Portugal.

Panoramah manufactures its own glass and has reported invested millions to take its product worldwide. It is now said to be one of the largest glass transformers in Europe with a 9m furnace and the ability to process double and triple-glazed units up to 29m2.

Gary Thorn, MD of Cube Glass, said: “The whole team at Cube Glass is very excited to be working with Panoramah, which is pushing the boundaries in terms of what can be done with glass. Its products are quite amazing.

“It was looking for a partner in Scotland as part of its international expansion strategy and I had met its representatives at trade shows so, after very productive and informative visits to its sites, the alliance naturally fell into place.

“Panoramah has very ambitious expansion plans,” he continued. “It wants to double its footprint in order to cut down its lead times and, although it is more famous for its sliding doors, its curtain walling is catching up as a main product.”

The partnership is the latest venture by Cube Glass which already has a fruitful relationship with high-end French design and engineering specialist, Bel’M, as well as its existing supplier relationships with Senior Architectural SystemsMetal Technology and Schüco.

Gary said he expected to see other manufacturers respond to the technical challenges raised by Panoramah by introducing their own ranges of thinner sightline glass products with potentially more competitive pricing.

He said: “There is no doubt that Panoramah’s is an expensive system, but there will be clients out there who only want the best and who can afford it and, as people become more aware of what can be done, its popularity will increase.”
