Restoring historical monuments is a delicate task in which every aesthetic nuance is important. SCHOTT’s Glasses for Restoration are the best choice for the faithful restoration of historical buildings from various eras – mimicking the appearance of the original glazing materials – GOETHEGLAS for buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, RESTOVER® glass for buildings dating from the early 1900s and TIKANA® glass for buildings from the classical modern period – these glasses also meet any number of contemporary needs because of the wide variety of processing options available, from UV protection to thermal insulation.
SCHOTT’s Glasses for Restoration provide the wide range of materials that architects need to do the job right.
Manufactured using the traditional Fourcault process, the look of the glass is based on historical window glasses from different eras.
GOETHEGLAS is a colorless, drawn glass with the irregular surface characteristic of window glass common to the 18th and 19th centuries. It can also be used to protect precious, leaded glazing from the elements and other adverse environmental conditions.
RESTOVER® resembles the window glass manufactured at the turn of the century. Its minimal thickness makes it easy to install in historical window frames and fittings.
While the surface of RESTOVER® light glass is slightly less irregular, RESTOVER® plus glass has a much more irregular surface structure and resembles mouth-blown glass.
TIKANA® glass is particularly suited for buildings dating from the Bauhaus style. Its slightly irregular surface harmonizes with buildings from the classical modern period. Like the other SCHOTT restoration glasses, TIKANA® glass offers every opportunity to link historical charm with modern physical building properties.
