The staff at the Glasfabrik Lamberts has been involved in the manufacturing of rolled glass, i.e. glass formed in rolling processes, since the founding of the company in 1887 by glass engineer Laurenz Lamberts. Since then the company has been a family-owned business and is the only medium-sized company in Europe to manufacture cast glass without being bound by any group.
Wide range of products & Flexibility
LAMBERTS are the only cast glass manufacturers in the world to produce every existing type of cast glass:
- LAMBERTS LINIT U-profile glass
- Patterned glass (and also special patterned glass for facades)
- Solar glass (optimized cast glass for the efficient use of solar energy, available since 1993!)
- Wired and wired patterned glass
LAMBERTS is the first and only glass manufacturer in the world to manufacture all glass types using an oxygen-fired melting furnace, this currently being the most ecologically sustainable method available!
This pioneering step was based on the recognition that production processes should be evaluated and improved in terms of environmental friendliness as well, and the project was implemented by LAMBERTS back in the nineteen nineties already. LAMBERTS has gradually refined its manufacturing processes over the years, enabling its glass products to be produced with the maximum possible share of recycled glass, and of the highest quality.
Emissions that are common in glass manufacturing are already reduced to a minimum during the production processes at Lamberts, this being particularly due to the use of the special glass furnace. An intricate filter system reduces any remaining emissions to a level that sets standards, especially on a global scale.
These and many additional individual measures enable us to offer you glass products that for many years now not only successfully contribute towards an ecologically sustainable future in architecture, but also apply the most ecologically friendly methods possible in their manufacturing process.
This year, within the scope of a large international competition organized by the renowned journal “Sustainable Industries”, LAMBERTS LINIT U-profile glass has been distinguished by the jury as one of the TOP 10 GREEN BUILDING PRODUCTS 2008, and is the only glass product among the winners.
Quality - MADE IN GERMANY
LAMBERTS LINIT U-profile glass is manufactured according to the highest quality standards by a workforce that fosters family tradition, and solely in their main factory in Wunsiedel, Upper Franconia (Germany). Certification in compliance with the Quality Standard DIN ISO 9001 is a matter of course.
Although channel glass was originally a low-cost solution for simple industrial and commercial buildings, the constant further development of LAMBERTS LINIT glass in a partner-like cooperation with suppliers and customers, has led to a U-profile glass that boasts refined properties, high quality and technical versatility, and is used today as LAMBERTS LINIT U-Glass in many design-oriented projects all over the world, including top-level architecture projects such as museums, theatres, hospitals, shopping centres, sports stadiums etc.
