Arch Aluminum & Glass 
Adds Heat Soak Capability for Heat-Treated Glass

Arch Aluminum & Glass in Tamarac, Fla., has announced the addition of nationwide heat soaking capability for its heat-treated glass products. 

“More and more everyday our customers are asking us about heat soaking, and in order to stay a True Single Source, we felt like we needed to do this,” says Steve Perilstein, vice president of sales for Arch.

According to information from the company, while heat soaking glass does not give a 100 percent guarantee of the elimination of spontaneous breakage, it does statistically reduce the instances. Arch reports that it will be the only fabricator with multiple locations in the United States and Canada to offer this service. www.archaluminum.net
